CHOICE OF THE ARMOURED WINDOW
SECURITY CLASSIFICATIONS
armoured windows

Security and energy savings are now the primary needs of any home. Fitting security doors and windows is an arduous task because it is regulated by "classifications" and "regulations" that can confuse even the experts. To guide the customer towards the best choice, SL Sabatino will give you an explanation of security classifications.

The standard which classifies the burglary resistance of doors and windows is UNI ENV 1627. This standard assigns the products that pass tests a class ranging from 1 to 6, on the basis of resistance to conventional break-ins tests carried out by mechanical equipment and specialised operators. EN 1628 static load tests – EN 1629 dynamic load tests – EN 1630 manual burglary attempt tests. Classes 1 to 3 are assigned to products that resist the attempts of a novice burglar equipped with a few simple tools, such as screwdrivers, levers, tongs and, at the very most, a crowbar. Classes 4 to 6 indicate artefacts able to resist an experienced burglar who "works" with saws, hammers, chisels, hatchets and noisy power tools, such as drills and grinders with power between 500 and 2000 watts.

In addition to having excellent thermoacoustic properties and high-level aesthetic finishes, SL Sabatino's MODULBLOCK armoured window, made of steel with wood finishing, has passed and obtained the anti-burglary Class 4 certification (the maximum for a glass window, considering that Classes 5 and 6 refer to grinders capable of cutting any type of double glazing used for civilian housing) where there is even the need for armoured glass class UNI EN 356/2002 (resistance test against manual burglary attempt), P6B which can resist up to 50 hammer-axe strokes and class UNI EN 1063 (firearm resistance test) BR1 which can resist to up to three Long RIFLE gunshots.
