Max6 Door Security

Improving front door security requires protection not only against break-ins whilst you are away but also protection from intruders knocking at the door!

Two of the most popular products for front door security are the MAX6 Sliding Door Chain and also the Narrow Door Chain, which are made from high grade steel and can exceed a breaking force of 200Nm as a result of each link in the door chain being individually soldered! The extra strong MAX6 door guards also allow the homeowner to identify and communicate with unknown visitors and deter forced entry and are ideal for people with limited hand movement or arthritis as there is no chain to deal with, just a solid locking bar.

The MAX6 Rack Bolt Set is an ideal safety precaution if your customers have small children in the house and you want to protect them from leaving the home undetected.

Key Fishing or Letterplate Fishing is a technique burglars use to get hold of keys, purse, handbags and more without even having to enter a property! They simply push open the letterbox flaps and use a long hooked rod, similar to a fishing rod, to ´fish´ for keys and handbags. Meaning they can then use the keys to just walk into a property and help themselves to anything they want before driving off in the homeowner’s car! That is why the MAX6 Letterplate Restrictor Shrouds are perfect to stop hands getting through the letterbox and either hooking keys or opening the lock. The MAX6 Security Mail Bags are developed to ensure easier retrieval of post, improve home security by preventing manipulation of the door lockthrough the post opening and also draft proofing the home.


Max6 Sliding Door Chains

max6-sliding-door-chains

The extra strong sliding door chain consists of 3 parts: The chain, the holder and the receiving plate (with the long cut out in its centre). Fixing screws are also supplied in the pack.

1- The chain and holder are to be fixed to the side of the doorframe. You should put the chain at a height that suits you. We would recommend fitting the door chain around waist height, so you do not have to bend down when using it.

2- Use the fixing screws to securely fix the chain holder to the door frame.
NB: If fixing into a wooden frame then you may find it slightly easier to make a small pilot hole first. If fixing into plastic do not make a pilot hole. You can make an indent to start the screws grabbing.

3- Once done, line the receiver plate with the edge of the door and in line with the holding plate. The circular cut in the receiver plate is to be nearest the centre of the door.

4- Fix the receiver plate using the remaining screws and the same procedure as above.

TESTING

On the end of the door chain you will find a plug. The narrow point of this goes into the slot in the receiving plate. Make sure the chain fits correctly and slides easily.

USING

When someone approaches your door, put the plug into the sliding plate and slide the plug to the edge of the door. This will enable you to open the door a few inches to see who is at the door.

MAINTENANCE

Your door chain should give you years of trouble free use. However, once a year clean the chain with a mild soap solution diluted in water. Dry off the chain with a lint free cloth.

Features Include:

1 Hour Fire Rated
Made from high grade steel
Individually soldered links makes the chains extra strong
Exceeds braking forces of 200Nm
Suitable for every type and door size

LZLq10H

Crime rates are gradually rising in the UK and criminals are getting more and more creative.

max with 100kg weight

Fitting a high quality polished brass sliding door chain is ideal for the elderly as they are generally most targeted by intruders of this kind. In addition, if you have small children the chain can double as keeping young children from leaving the home unnoticed through an easy to open door, all the while protecting them should they reach the door before you and open it to a stranger!

Each sturdy MAX6MUM SECURITY door chain comes with all necessary parts and fitting screws, and easy to follow step by step instructions so you will be able to install the door chain yourself without the help from a 3rd party!

hollow wall fixing

To compliment the Sliding Door Chains, we have also developed hollow wall anchors. Hollow wall anchors are used to fix the screws into the plastic door frame to get a good, solid fix. The reason these are needed is because a door frame maybe 2mm thick, so there is not enough material for the screws to grip. These are especially needed when fixing many products such as door chains etc. into think skins of uPVC panels or composite door skins.

Unlike other wall fixings, we adjusted the grip spike to get a good fix, but not making it too big so that it can shatter or crack plastic. We then specified counter sunk bolts in either Brass or Chrome, so they suit most colour by volume, and fits into our counter sunk furniture. Each pack comes with 6 fixings and plated bolts.

At MAX6 we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.

With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:

Tensile Strength Testing Machine

The tensile strength machine tests the resistance of a material to breaking under tension. It is used to see how well our door chains perform when pressure is applied to them. The products are attached to pieces of timber or plastic to see how well the fixings perform with the overall product, which gives a more accurate test on the overall product performance. Products are tested to 100kg and are in accordance with ISO EN16281:2013 and DHF TS 003:2012 standards:

NB: If fixing into wooden frame then you may find it slightly easier to make a small pilot hole first. If fixing into plastic do not make a pilot hole. You can make an indent to start the screws grabbing.

3- Once done, line the receiver plate with the moving arm plate so that the ball fits into the middle of the wider gap at the end of the moving arm. This is the point where the moving arm pivots.

4- Fix the receiver plate using the remaining screws and the same procedure as above.

TESTING

Fold the moving arm across the door so it is flat with the door. At this point the ball in the receiver plate will be about central at the end of the moving arm.

Max6 Rack Bolt Set

max6-rack-bolt-set

The Rack Bolt Set consists of 4 parts; the Rack Bolt, the Key, various Locking Plates and various Escutcheons. We have also supplied fixing screws. To fit the rack bolt, you will need a tape measure, pencil, drill, 13mm & 16mm wood bits and a chisel.

1. Use a pencil to mark the centre of the side of the door where you want to put the bolt. We recommended 150mm from the top or 200mm from the bottom of the door.

2. Using a flat bit, drill a hole to the length of the bolt (approx. 16mm wide by 60mm long).

3. Slide the bolt into the hole and use a pencil to mark around the bolt plate. Remove the bolt and chisel out a recess for the plate so it sits flush within the door.

4. Mark the position of the keyhole on the inside of the door with a pencil by aligning the edge of the bolt with the plate recess. Drill a hole slightly larger than the key through half the door thickness.

DO NOT DRILL ALL THE WAY THROUGH!

5. Position the bolt into the door and drill the fixing screws into the bolt plate to hold it in place.

6. Position your chosen escutcheon over the keyhole and drill in the fixing screws to hold it in place. Insert the key and check that the bolt is moving in and out.

7. To create a bolt hole, close the door and operate the rack bolt to leave a mark on the door frame. This will show where the bolt hole needs to be. Use the drill to create a hole slightly larger than the bolt into the door frame. Operate the rack bolt to ensure the bolt hole is in the correct position.

8. Position the locking plate over the bolt hole. Draw around the locking plate then chisel out a recess similar to before. When you are happy with the position, screw it into place.
