wrought iron security door frame
 
The back "dutch-style" door of our brick house is between two windows that look into our kitchen. There have been a lot of break-ins recently in our town, and I notice signs that someone has been trying to force our door open with a pry-bar near the latch where the diagram below has an (x). They're forcing the pry-bar between the door and the door jamb; because there's nothing solid behind the door jamb, there's some flex in the frame.

So I am looking for a wrought-iron security door.

The one company I phoned said their wrought iron security door frame is L-shaped, not a rectangle. Are all of the frames L-shaped? Are there any pre-hung wrought iron security doors that are designed to fit into a rectangular four-sided metal frame that could be fastened with lag bolts into the brick wall on left and right side of the lower half of the door, into the cement at the foot of the door, and into the brick above the door?

Thanks
