Your place dun have pamphlets on these items? Becoz of competition especially hdbs they are littered with these advertisements.

A lot of the wrought iron gate have hook on hinges. Just get 2 fit men and they can lift the gate out of the hinges. Whatever super padlock you use will be pointless. So pay attention on what hinges will be used for the gate.

No one will bother to check. I see many ppl change the shelter door to plastic/wooden ones. Regulation also says cannot change.

Can. Depending on the material used for the joints of the hinges. Actually a lot of them use mild steel for the joints, they are considered soft and not to mention cheap. Robbers can still easily break it by drilling thru the welds and lift up the entire gate. You say cheap perhaps that's the trade off. biggrin.gif

Anyway gates are easy to break. The weak points are the hinges. You can request to use stainless steel joints.

I suggest you get a fire-rated door for your main door, for safety purpose as well.

contrary to popular thinking..fire door is used to reduce the spread of fire and smoke from your own unit to other units in the event of fire..it simply means you install to prevent damage to other properties

It work both ways. If there's a fire at the corridor, the door will prevent the fire and smoke from coming in. The fire seal at the lipping of the door will expand to seal the gap between the door and frame, preventing smoke from coming in. SCDF respond very fast here.

There's many ratings for timber fire-rated door, from half hour to two hours.
