What are security jamb anchors?

Security anchors are used in DW/K frames located directly above or below strike preparation on door side of frame. Because there are only two points of anchoring, the compression anchor near the head and the base anchor at the floor. These anchors help prevents anyone from prying the door open.

Recommendations:

  1. Use in housing projects or where security is an issue.
  2. Locate anchors to opposite side of strike jamb and to the hinge jamb for additional security.

This anchor must be welded into all DW/K frame headers used in double door openings to maintain fire rating.
