According to the police, most burglars force open doors and windows by lifting, hammering or drilling. Protect yourself and your home from uninvited guests with aluplast PVC windows.
The quality of a window in terms of burglary resistance is largely determined by the interaction of window profiles, glazing and hardware.
In September, 2011, a new European series of standards regarding burglary resistance has been published. This new standard (DIN EN 1627) differentiates the resistance classes (RC) RC 1 N to RC 6.
The following table shows the expected burglar type and behaviour for the resistance classes RC 1 N to RC 6 (formerly WK 1 to WK 6 according to the previous German standard).
|DIN EN 1627||DIN V ENV 1627 (until 09/2011)||Wider-standszeit||Tätertyp / Vorgehensweise|
|RC 1 N||
||3 min||Components in resistance class 1 offer basic protection against attempted forced entry with physical violence, such as kicking or pulling out. This class comprises only windows with standard glazing.|
|RC 2 N||WK 2 without safety glass||3 min||Casual thieves use simple tools as well, such as screwdrivers, pliers and wedges, to break open the closed and locked component. Forced entry is supposed to be prevented by other means, for this reason only standard glazing is installed.|
|RC 2||WK 2||3 min||Expected burglar type and burglar behaviour correspond to class RC 2 N. The installation of a safety glass according to EN 356 is mandatory.|
|RC 3||WK 3||5 min||The habitual burglar uses a second screwdriver and a crow-bar as well to break open the closed and locked component.|
|RC 4||WK 4||10 min||The experienced burglar uses sawing and hammering tools as well, such as axes, chisels, hammers and battery-operated drills.|
|RC 5||WK 5||15 min||The experienced burglar uses high-performance power tools as well, such as drills, sabre saws and grinders with a maximum wheel diameter of 125 mm.|
|RC 6||WK 6||20 min||The experienced burglar uses high-performance power tools as well, such as drills, sabre saws and grinders with a maximum wheel diameter of 250 mm.|
