Making Security Door Installation a Breeze with the Perfect Frame™

When we talk to potential clients about security doors, they seem to get stuck on two concepts: That design is unencumbered. You can literally have anything you want, provided it fits within your budget. Stained hardwood, backlit marble, hand-stitched leather, or even a map of your favorite beach town carved in metal. That security door installation is not the same as a regular door installation — not by a long shot. There are a number of factors that go into security door installation. They’re similar to the ones you’ll encounter with every door installation, but our doors are unlike any other kind of doors you’ve ever seen, which complicates things. In the past, our clients have become frustrated with this aspect of our business, so we’ve been looking for ways to improve installation. Of course, havingRead more

Why Your DIY Safe Room Won’t Keep You Safe

When you’re searching for ways to keep yourself, your loved ones, and your home secure, it can be easy to fall down the rabbit hole of DIY safe room tutorials. It’s a tempting topic. The idea that you can use your own two hands and some easily-available materials to enhance your security (and peace of mind) is certainly alluring. Unfortunately, DIY panic room security measures often fall far short of their anticipated utility — and your personal safety definitely isn’t something you want to leave up to Pinterest hacks. In fact, trendy online articles may lead people to use insufficiently-tough materials like plywood, single-pane windows, or even pieces of plastic to shield themselves from harm. DIY safe room hacks can also go hand-in-hand with cost-cutting measures that result in inadequate security, poor aesthetics, or even structuralRead more

The FBS Way: Getting Security Doors and Windows Done Right

At FBS, we do things a bit differently. Or at least — different from a lot of U.S. companies. In the United States, the mentality is generally to get everything done as quickly as possible so we can move on to the next project to make more money. We’re not saying there’s anything “wrong” with being productive and profitable — what company doesn’t want to be productive and profitable? What we’re saying is that there comes a point where quality can suffer because of the rush to wrap up projects. And when the quality suffers, your reputation will suffer. Our business philosophy is all about maintaining high quality security doors and windows for luxury residences and office spaces. And there’s simply no way we could keep our standards so high if we were willing to cutRead more

Custom Security Door Installation vs. Delivery vs. Shipping

A common point of confusion for our clients is the shipping versus delivery of their custom security doors versus the installation of their custom security doors. We understand why there is so much confusion surrounding the differences between the processes, but it’s important to recognize that they’re separate. They’re fulfilled by three different teams with their own skill sets. To clear up the confusion and help our clients understand what they can expect from their FBS experience, we want to detail exactly what happens during each step and why the distinction is so important. Shipping Your Custom Security Door Shipping may seem self-explanatory to some, but based on the number of questions we get about it, some extra information would be beneficial. When we refer to the shipment of your custom security doors or windows, we’reRead more

How Interior Security Doors Can Keep Your Family Safer

The first place luxury homeowners typically choose to put a security door is at the main entrance. The front door is often the most urgent priority because it’s the most visible. After that, people may upgrade their side doors, garage fire doors, and sliding doors leading to their patios. Interior security doors aren’t always a priority for our clients. Their security needs vary based on their unique situation. Some are perfectly satisfied with exterior doors. In some cases, the client doesn’t even care that it’s a security door — they come to us because they want Italian craftsmanship and customization. They want a really beautiful door and we can create that for them. But others are survivors of violent acts or harassment. Some have had people break into their homes while they were going about theirRead more
