installation information

No, we do not sell or offer monthly security alarm systems. The products we make protect your home from ever being broken into. This prevents the alarm system from coming into play because the intruders never entered your home.

Door Armor is a set of 5 steel plates that reinforce the key weak points of your door. The parts are available in 3 colors (White, Satin Nickel or Aged Bronze) and can be installed in about 30 minutes. Our products are designed to help prevent break-ins or repair damage from a previous break-in. Learn More About Door Armor  

Door Armor is screwed onto the lock area of the door jamb, the lock area on your door, and over your hinges. When all of these parts are reinforced, your door is very difficult to kick in.

Only our solutions reinforce all of the key weak points on a door (Jamb, Lock Area and Hinges). If one of those points is not reinforced, the door can still be kicked in. We make our products out of galvanized steel and powder coat them because cold rolled steel will rust and paint is not durable enough.; In short, our products work where others fail.

No. Door Armor products are designed to prevent kick-ins. Our Pry Guard would be needed to defend against prying. Prying is not covered in the  Door Armor Warranty

No. Door Armor come in 3 colors (White, Satin Nickel and Aged Bronze) . Our side light pieces currently only come in white.

Door Armor is barely visible once it is installed. When the door is closed, you will see about ¼ inch of the product. View installed product images here.

If you have access to a drill, you should be able to install Door Armor. If you are uncomfortable using a drill, we can guide you how to find an installer.

No. You do not need to remove your door...And Yes. You really can install Door Armor yourself. Please view our installation videos, found  HERE  If you still do not feel comfortable with installation, we can help you find an installer in your area.

We have created the PRO Door Armor product line to secure interior doors. If you would like to use our standard Door Armor products, you must replace your interior door with a standard entry door (remove the sill plate) and install Door Armor.

Product element basics

warranty & Return information

A side light door has a row of windows right next to the door. Some doors have side lights on both sides, and others may have a row on one side only.

YES! We promise that if you use the Jamb Shield without the Door Shields your deadbolt will split your door if your door is kicked!  This is the main reason other products fail. Please understand that your "steel" door is really two thin pieces of steel wrapped around a Styrofoam core. Without the Door Shields, do not expect your door to withstand more than a few well-placed kicks before splitting.

YES! We never thought about protecting our hinges until after we had developed the Jamb Shield and people began kicking our hinges in. If the pieces were not absolutely necessary, we would save you the time and money and simply not make them. We only include two shields because testing has shown that when two hinges are secured, the third will not move. Any manufacturer who tells you that longer screws are enough to protect the hinges has not tested their products thoroughly.

Physics! Making the piece longer allows us to make it with thinner metal, which means that you do not have to chisel or cut your jamb to install it. Also, the longer piece actually redistributes the force of a kick throughout the length of the stud, which is why it is so effective.

Because it isn't necessary and would cost a lot more. After a lot of testing, we determined that a shield longer than 48 inches provided no additional benefit. Doors also come in a variety of different sizes, which would create fitting issues. Shipping a 72" piece of steel would indeed be a nightmare. In short, this would add up to a significantly higher cost for you

Door Armor will fit jambs of any thickness. Many homes built before 1950 were made with thicker jambs. If you have an older home, you should seriously consider Door Armor.

Yes, if the product is installed correctly and your door is kicked in. Armor Concepts will pay up to $500 if Door Armor fails to prevent a kick-in. For details, please view the Armor Concepts Warranty.

We have a money back guarantee, so if you are not satisfied for any reason you may send the product back for a refund within 90 days, minus the shipping cost. We do not charge restocking fees. View Our Return Policy.
