Sprenghemmende Fassade Salzer intro

In the case of protection with "explosive resistant security" films, usually only one single (or multi-layered) film is laminated onto the internal side of the glazing; the other components of the door, the window or the facade are still unsecured. During an explosion extreme pressure waves are released. At an explosion with pressure waves of e.g. 0.1bar, a load of about 1t/m2 will impact on the whole element. In order to withstand this high pressure, the complete element must be designed blast resistant. If only films are laminated onto the glazing and all other components are unsecured and are not designed for such a strong pressure, the element will fail in emergency case in a variety of ways:

RC6 Einbruchtest Forced entry test intro

The number of burglaries has increased extremely in the last few years. Only every sixth burglary could be solved. Therefore it is important to prevent forced entry attempts by installing mechanical high security components. SAELZER has enhanced the steel door S4, which was successfully used for decades, and has tested it in the highest security level RC6. The European standard for forced entry resistance EN 1627-1630 assume in the highest resistance level RC6 that an experienced and professional prepared burglar commit the burglary. It is assumed that the burglar uses power tools such as power drill, jigsaw and angle grinder in addition to usual tools such as crowbar and hammer. In the tests according to the European standard the number and the quality of the used tools increases gradually with each resistance level - from RC1 up to RC6. Furthermore the testing time increase gradually with each security level up to a total test time of 50 min. in level RC6.
