This type of thing is happening more and more , sure an alarm will call authorities and help is on its way . and a gun is great if you can get to it load it and shoot first . I decided to take a more proactive stance! In the past few months I have secured my home with the Gibraltdoor , it is home invasion proof, I even put one on my master bedroom closet and created a walk in safe /panic room to run too! .find them on facebook and or online Gibraltdoor. this door is so tough even the police battering ram cant get through. they have a video on their website Gibraltdoor

Johnny Burke, are you related to the John Burkes that seems to own this company? Over $1,000.00 for a front door, so ok, what stops people from breaking a window or just entering an unlocked door? A lot of folks don't lock their doors when they are there, so this door is only good when they are not home. Plus who needs to worry about the Police using a battering ram, unless they are doing illegal activities in their homes? Plus all this only makes these doors so protective is that the frames these doors are attached to are fortified. A battering ram would take out the whole door jam, not just the door.
