I'll just give you 3 tips:

1/if you think a metal frame to "fill" for anti-intrusion, noise, cold.

2/think the final weight will lead efforts on value. Remember to take the hinge bearings and provide space for weld/fix (once finished frame that does not include a circular saw).

3/also think about buying the lock before (possibly standard) to integrate reinforcements in areas of fixations, and not having to make modifications to the grinder after.

Good luck.

A door anti-intrusion is accomplished by shielding an existing door, and change the locks for a multi-point.
note, the framework must be changed too, with over anti-prybars , holes to accommodate the anchor points, and as stated Paroroma, locks strengthened.
Remember to put either a camera or a peephole.
tell you although firefighters (for example) have autonomous systems that destroy any armored door in 10 Seconds. Max! I saw them exploding a 5 points in 5 secs!
If you want to resist burglars will require not only slow down a door, but also away by a sophisticated alarm.. :-)
