Forced Entry and Ballistic

Forced Entry and Ballistic Resistant

In 2017, PSS recognized a need in the security industry for advanced applications and hybrid-performance door systems. Our team forged a relationship with Stafford Bridge, a UK based door company to provide the US market security door systems designed and tested to secure the highest levels of critical national infrastructure while maintaining life safety, accessibility, and security.

Forced Entry and Ballistic Resistant (FEBR) door systems are specified for projects throughout the US. The Department of State’s STD 01.01 Rev. G is the most well-known specification for door systems tested to 15 and 60 minutes of attack.

In 2019, PSS tested a variety of door systems and vision panels by Oregon Ballistics Laboratories. Our company is proud to be the first to market with wood core FEBR door systems that meet the 15 and 60 minutes of attack. These door systems can be offered in a variety of finishes and hardware configurations.

Beyond the wood core doors, PSS has passed 15-minute vision panel attacks. All products submitted were tested to Underwriters Laboratories Level 8 ballistic testing.
