Einbruchtest Security14LIVE forced entry test was a great success at the fair Security. In the live test, we want to point out the increased risk of burglary, if glazed doors are equipped with anti-panic locks. Also forced entry resistant doors, level RC4, glazed with the appropriate P6B glazing (DIN EN 1627-1630 | DIN EN 356) have this risk of burglary if they are equipped with anti-panic locks. Because all locking of these kind of locks will be pulled back at ONCE by pressing the handle or panic bar, so the door can be opened easily. To demonstrate this problem, we have installed 2 different kind of glazing in our test element.

 LIVE forced entry test was a great success at the fair Security. In the live test, we want to point out the increased risk of burglary, if glazed doors are equipped with anti-panic locks. Also forced entry resistant doors, level RC4, glazed with the appropriate P6B glazing (DIN EN 1627-1630 | DIN EN 356) have this risk of burglary if they are equipped with anti-panic locks. Because all locking of these kind of locks will be pulled back at ONCE by pressing the handle or panic bar, so the door can be opened easily. To demonstrate this problem, we have installed 2 different kind of glazing in our test element.

We started with the P6B glazing: our “burglar” needed only a few seconds to beat a hole with a simple screwdriver into the glazing. Through this hole he pushed the door handle easily down with the screwdriver and so the door was opened quickly. 

Our colleague then tried to open the door with the same burglary tools through the alternate glazing, a special P6B glazing with polycarbonate layers. It was not possible to beat a hole in these special glazing, the door remained closed. All forced entry resistant doors of SÄLZER which are wquipped with anti-panic locks are always glazed with this special glazing with integrated polycarbonate layers and are tested according to DIN EN 1627-1630.
