Products for all protective goals, building types and styles

In order to reliably protect lives, properties and material assets, physical building security must be based upon tested and approved system technology. Considering individual threat scenarios, products of different graduated safety classes may be applied. More and more frequently, multi-functionality is additionally requested by customers. When it comes to product development, SAELZER therefore strictly focuses on approved multiple safety features. This philosophy ensures cross-series combinability of forced entry, bullet and blast resistance in one single product. Depending on the individual installation scenario you may even additionally integrate break-out resistance as well as protection against fire and smoke.

Apart from their uncompromising security and functionality, all SAELZER Series feature an elegant, sophisticated design which enables architects to adapt proven, reliable security to the building's individual architecture and style.

Security windows that don't look like security

In everyday building operation, windows already fulfil several important functions. At the same time they manage natural daylight and ventilation, offer thermal insulation and, as part of the building envelope, contribute to its architectural style. Security windows by SAELZER fulfil all these basic functions according to latest standards and additionally integrate graduated and combinable security and protection against the most diverse threat scenarios.

Using our own custom developed profiles, the frame constructions made of either steel or aluminium keep up the narrow profile face widths preferred in modern architectural styles. At the same time they offer safety and security of the chosen rating and the stability to integrate extensive and heavy multi-functional glazing. Viewed from the outside, their security potential mostly remains secret. Exposed to threats, however, security windows by SAELZER guarantee tested and certified protection up to highest standards.

Security doors that integrate functional diversity

Being movable and highly stressed components, the construction of multi-functional security doors is quite complex. Safety functions - for example forced entry and bullet resistance - in some applications even have to be extended by blast resistance and/or fire and smoke protection. Additionally, these special doors must be prepared to elegantly integrate automated fittings and access control units.

Each single door function is security-related and has to function reliably and durably as part of the overall door system. Security doors by SAELZER offer functional diversity by being individually adaptable to a whole variety of single and combined threat scenarios. In order to meet the most diverse customer demands in operating comfort and style, multiple design options have been tested and approved.

Safety grills & blades, recommended by experts

Safety grills by SAELZER, marketed under the brand OXIR® Series, offer reliable passive security against force entry, break-out and escape attempts from outside. They are regarded as main structural security measures for police stations, prisons, forensic clinics as well as all kinds of industrial facilities. Police and insurance companies also recommend them for private applications, i.e. securing windows in less exposed parts of the façade.

Also marketed under the brand OXIR® Series, safety blade modules by SAELZER combine ventilation functions and weather protection with additional forced entry and bullet resistance. Combinable modules composed of fixed, slightly overlapping steel lamellas may be arranged horizontally and vertically, hence offering both protection and ventilation even for expansive surfaces.
