Would something like this work on your double doors? https://www.inlad.com/copy-of-master...et?page_id=950

I'm not sure if this is in your wheelhouse, but I built a new door from square tube and sheet metal. Since I've gotten the windows in it looks and works pretty good (I can still use the air ram to open and close it)

I plan on using traditional "bear claw" style automotive latches to secure the door.

Missourileo, sorry, but I have WAY TOO MUCH GLASS in those doors to support that type of lock. Right now, I use a length of chain secured by two keyed-alike padlocks. Mind you, if someone truly wanted in there, they'd get in. Locks only keep honest people honest.

I looked up your link for the security doors. It looks like they are screen doors. Did you replace the screen with Plexiglas?

[QUOTE=slaughridge85;140355]Not exactly what you're asking for but if you measure your door frame you may be able to buy a security/storm door from a home improvement store that will fit in there nicely... no welding required.
IDid you replace the screen with glass? I looked up your link and it looks like screen is behind the iron. I really like this idea though. Thanks

No it is a security door with removable security glass, it has a screen that you could put up during nice weather though...
Here is the exact model we got...
