Anyone has been using security door long enough? Say 2-3 years? What's your feedback on this?

Recently went to the Perfect Living exhibition at PWTC and this idea came into my mind.. But manage to scout around for these doors during the exhibition, notice immediately there are some selling at premium price but VERY GOOD finishing and quality wise is there just by the view of it.. Also i do notice cheaper ones which has a rather lousy quality too..

Since the security door is so "secured" , what are the chances of this door to be spoilt? Probably due to the locking mechanism or due to key hole failure etc..? Any inputs will be much appreciated smile.gif

Afaik its the the locks.. Their inside is not rust etc proof. Once in a while wd40.

Have to got how many bar are used to lock your door. If just like normal door, I only need a 14KG cylinder to break open the door.
Avoid using WD40 on all cost, use silicone lubricant are better thumbup.gif

Ok read enough n made a call to locksmith i keep as emergency number. Both of us are wrong
He said use graphite powder.
Wd not advisable but wont damage the lock n stay away from silicone lub for locks.
