Alumax Exit SBD are aluminium commercial doors, tested to PAS24 and complying with the requirements of Secured By Design.

Our Secured By Design (SBD) door provides you with all the benefits of a quality-made, reliable aluminium door with enhanced security, engineering and performance.  Offers all the advantages of standard aluminium fire-exit doors such as extensive colour choice, low threshold, thermally insulated frame and self-closing device. Secured by Design door sets are designed to prevent attack and burglary attempts giving you peace of mind in any public, retail or other commercial building.

These doors feature a quality push to exit horizontal panic bar with additional security locking features. They are suitable for any commercial building needing a reliable and highly secure fire-exit door including schools, hospitals, offices, retail parks and many other applications.

Alumax Exit SBD doors feature protection at the threshold and the lock body to prevent tampering using wires or other implements. Internal and external locking facility is available while retaining the emergency exit facility at all times.

With perimeter doors such as rear and side doors often being targeted for attack out of hours, Rayulite Exit SBD fire-exit doors provide a high security solution with dependable fire-escape. Our doors are suitable for retrofitting to existing openings or for new build projects.

The aluminium doors and frames are robust in their construction fitted with the latest high security architectural hardware.

Doors are tested with anti-finger trap hinge stiles, a standard midrail section, double glazed security glass and a low threshold.
