MAX6MUM SECURITY extra strong narrow door chain improves your overall door security!
Improving your door security requires protection not only against break-ins whilst you are are away, but also protection from intruders knocking at your door, and improving your security to protect you from this doesn’t have to be expensive! Beautifully developed not only to look stylish on your door but to ensure the best possible front door security, the quality narrow door chain provides everything a door chain should do:
Crime rates are gradually rising in the UK and criminals are getting more and more creative. They pose as postmen, charity workers or simply someone looking for directions, and once you open your door to them they can easily push their way through. Situations like this never end well and usually someone gets hurt. You can prevent it by installing this very simple device! Each narrow door chain is Secured by Design – the Police preferred specification:
Unlike other chains that break at the slightest strain, what makes the extra strong high security polished brass narrow door chain from MAX6MUM SECURITY the ideal choice for your front door is that the door chain is entirely made of steel, and each link is individually soldered and welded, providing additional strength and resilience to forced entry. This innovative design and quality means that the door chain can withstand over 100kg of breaking force!
To compliment the Narrow Door Chains, we have also developed hollow wall anchors. Hollow wall anchors are used to fix the screws into the plastic door frame to get a good, solid fix. The reason these are needed is because a door frame maybe 2mm thick, so there is not enough material for the screws to grip. These are especially needed when fixing many products such as door chains etc. into think skins of uPVC panels or composite door skins.
Unlike other wall fixings, we adjusted the grip spike to get a good fix, but not making it too big so that it can shatter or crack plastic. We then specified counter sunk bolts in either Brass or Chrome, so they suit most colour by volume, and fits into our counter sunk furniture. Each pack comes with 6 fixings and plated bolts.

At MAX6 we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.
With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:
Tensile Strength Testing Machine
The tensile strength machine tests the resistance of a material to breaking under tension. It is used to see how well our door chains perform when pressure is applied to them. The products are attached to pieces of timber or plastic to see how well the fixings perform with the overall product, which gives a more accurate test on the overall product performance. Products are tested to 100kg and are in accordance with ISO EN16281:2013 and DHF TS 003:2012 standards:
The extra strong high security door chain consists of 3 parts: The chain, the holder and the receiving plate (with the cut out in its centre). Fixing screws are also supplied in the pack.
1- The chain and holder are to be fixed to the side of the doorframe. You should put the chain at a height that suits you. We would recommend fitting the chain around waist height, so you do not have to bend down when using it.
2- Use the fixing screws to securely fix the chain holder to the door frame. The holder should be pointing upwards with the door chain ring fixed into the indentation. NB: If fixing into wooden frame then you may find it slightly easier to make a small pilot hole first. If fixing into plastic do not make a pilot hole. You can make an indent to start the screws grabbing.
3- Line the receiver plate with the edge of the door and the holding plate. The cut in the holding plate is to be facing the edge of the door.
4- Fix the receiver plate using the remaining screws and the same procedure as above.
In the middle of the door chain you will find a flat plate. The flat plate goes into the slot in the receiving plate. Make sure the chain fits correctly and slides easily.
When someone approaches your door, put the flat plate into the receiving plate. This will enable you to open the door a few inches to see who is at the door.
Your door chain should give you years of trouble free use. However, once a year clean the chain with a mild soap solution diluted in water. Dry off the chain with a lint free cloth.
