Portaro® SBD Solutions


Driving security forward with the complete package 

If you were selecting a car for security reasons, would you be looking for one that had wheels, an engine and a lockable door? No, of course not! You would rightly be interested in its performance, roadworthy tests, quality of components, not to mention other safety features and naturally its appearance and stylish kerb appeal.  

Selecting the right Secured by Design (SBD) Doorkit is not dissimilar. It’s not a case of meeting the minimum requirement, with a certificate saying SBD Tested, anything will do! In a modern build there is so much more to consider, from fire rating to life cycle expectations and installation to design flexibility.  Portaro SBD Interior timber Entrance Doorkits from Vicaima provides just that scope, with ease of assembly, quality materials, outstanding performance and design appeal as standard, all encased in one of the most comprehensively certificated products on the market.

Of course, the process often begins with the project design theme. Here the Portaro SBD system provides a rarity in today’s market. With matching door, frame and architrave in a myriad of materials and even special finishes. The Portaro system offers complete design freedom, with no compromise of aesthetics over performance. 

Beyond the finish, design configuration offers flexibility, with a choice of either a conventional architrave or for a seamless face the Inverse system, where door sits flush with its surroundings.  All door systems incorporate a 3-Point locking system, handle and security escutcheon, together with an automatic dropseal.

When choosing a car, viewing the engine is a must. Obviously harder to do with doorkits, however remember performance in any security assembly is often not visible to the naked eye. Portaro SBD Doorkit  are constructed with heavy duty and high-density cores, surrounded by double timber rails on all sides, complete with hardwood lippings. Furthermore, the frames are made from hardwood and come pre-fitted with fire, smoke and acoustic seals.

For anyone looking to move out of first gear when it comes to security standards, then Portaro SBD Doorkits really are worth a test drive.
