Burglary-resistant aluminium windows provide security and protection from burglary to your house, flat or commercial building. heroal safety windows offer a standard, basic protection which, thanks to the modular design of our products, may be further increased on demand. As certified by an independent test of ift Rosenheim, Institute for research, testing and certification, heroal safety windows in combination with lockable handles are resistance class RC 3-rated and thus able to resist loads of 600 kg. The protection from burglary is not visible from the outside.
A number of different requirements need to be fulfilled for a window to qualify for a specific burglary resistance class. Security windows by heroal meet the these requirements by their number of locking points, lockable window handles, penetration-resistant safety glass, fittings with mushroom locking bolts as well as a pry-proof protection. In addition, the material aluminium plays an important role for the stability of the security window. Finally, the professional installation also makes a significant contribution to the burglary prevention a window offers.
The classification of security windows has been defined in the German industry norm DIN EN 1627. This norm uses different resistance classes in order to define for how long a window is able to resist attacks to break it open. After a revision of this norm in 2011, the original German term (WK = “Widerstandsklasse”) was replaced by the international term “Resistance Class” (RC), which has been used Europe-wide since then. The higher the resistance class, the higher the burglary prevention a window provides. The police recommend the installation of security windows which meet at least the requirements of resistance class RC 2. A number of factors contribute to the achievement of a specific resistance class. All of these factors need to meet specific requirements, starting with wall attachment through glazing and locking points to professional installation. Please find below a survey of the different resistance classes and the requirements windows of each class have to fulfil.
Security windows with resistance class RC 3 prevent the perpetrator from gaining access to your home at any point of attack for at least 5 minutes. Find the right heroal security window to meet your personal demands on burglary prevention and security now.
