Rockdoor - The Door That Beat The Bobbies And The Secretary of State!

Construction News Image
When Lancashire Police had to forcibly enter a house through the front door with their rams and batons, it turned out to be an impossible task!

Why? Well because, unknown to them, the door in question happened to be a Rockdoor.
Even with some of the best equipment around the Police team were unable to force the door and were very impressed by the Rockdoors unrivalled powers of resistance and all round strength. Ultimately they had to abandon their operation and find an alternative method to gain entry to the house.

The UK's leading composite door also proved to be too strong for Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor, Jack Straw MP. Mr Straw launched a sustained assault on a black Number 10-style Rockdoor. But despite his best efforts Mr Straw made little impact. Hardly surprising considering Rockdoor is a fully engineered PVC-U door system designed for strength and security.
