Mortise Lock Application for Door Jamb Armor Introduced by Armor Concepts LLC

Armor Concepts LLC, a leading manufacturer and distributor of door repair and door security products, introduces a mortise lock application to its line of Door Jamb Armor® products.

Door Jamb Armor® is a unique set of steel sleeves that reinforce the weak points on a door to help prevent intruders from kicking them in. The product can be used to repair a door that has already been kicked in or can be used proactively to help prevent intruders from entering a home. The product comes as a set that helps reinforce the jamb, hinges and the lock area of the door and offers unparalleled protection against kick-ins.

Mortise locks have generally been found on older buildings, constructed before the advent of bored cylindrical locks, but they have recently become more common in commercial and upmarket residential construction in the United States. The new Door Jamb Armor® product reinforces the jamb and hinges on doors with mortise locks.

"Our mortise lock application was developed in response to requests by several key customer segments, which include older homes, upscale residences and extended-stay residential hotels. The introduction of this piece demonstrates our ability to adapt our products to fit the wide variety of applications that exist. We will continue to develop new products as long as our customers continue to ask for them, and we expect to make several additional announcements in the coming months." says Alan S. Young, CEO.

According to the FBI Uniform Crime report and the US Department of Justice, a burglary occurs every 15 seconds somewhere in the U.S. In more than 50% of all burglaries, thieves enter by kicking in a door. It takes less than 45 seconds and three kicks to break through the average residential door. A home that has already been burglarized is four times more likely to be burglarized again.

Many people believe that a home security system with offsite monitoring is all they need to keep their homes secure. In fact, alarm systems simply alert an owner that an intruder is already inside, and they do nothing to stop an intruder that has made the decision to enter a home. In addition, while the average police response time to a home alarm is greater than 20 minutes, an experienced thief is in and out of a house in less than 5 minutes.

Door Jamb Armor® was developed by the partners of a real estate investment company with properties under renovation located in transitional areas. Following several break-ins, increasing property loss costs, and several failed attempts to solve the problem with existing solutions, they began to consider new alternatives.

Door Jamb Armor® was designed and developed in 2004, and tested throughout 2005 in a variety of residential settings. Numerous police departments and crime prevention organizations across the U.S. have confirmed it as a viable and cost effective solution to an increasing problem.

"I highly recommend this product to every family, and Door Jamb Armor® should be implemented in every security application," advises Frank J. Santamorena, Physical Security Professional and Security Advisor to the Discovery Network's show "It Takes a Thief".
