MENA's increasing demand for threat-resistance entrances and security doors

revolving doorBauporte Gulf, an entrance system and door manufacturer headquartered in Dubai, has reported a growing demand for burglary-resistant class, RC3 entrance systems and doors from building owners and designers across MENA

Despite serving as a benchmark standard for banks and financial institutions, a more recent trend has emerged as architectures and designers of hotels, government facilities and other classes of infrastructure are enquiring about RC3-rated entrance systems.

Features such as night shutters for new-build and refurbishment projects across MENA are also seeing an upswing in demand, as per Bauporte Golf's recent reports.  

The internationally-recognised RC3 certification ensures the majority of burglars, using a variety of tools such as drills, knives, saws, screwdrivers, crowbars or hammers, will be met with greater difficulty when trying to enact break-ins and burglaries. 

Bauport manufactures doors to these specifications in Germany, which are then shipped to the Middle East and installed by local teams. The company's RC3-approved portfolio including swing revolving, sliding and pivot doors.  

Paul Haslam, partner at Bauporte Golf, explained, “Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states are currently generating the greatest demand for automatic RC3-rated doors which could be due to a higher perceived risk in those countries. This is less the case in the UAE, where most RC3-rated door enquiries are for bank and financial institution buildings, as well as some government building work.”

Installing RC3-approved entrances and doorway systems is often a key factor when awarding government and event contracts to hotels and exhibition centres, making them a key priority for many secure, modern buildings and facilities.
