Bullet-resistant doors, windows and façades

SAELZER security doors, windows and facades protect human lives against ballistic attacks. The special construction (profile, glazing, hardware etc.) and the professional installation ensure reliable protection.

The high security is proven by test certificates from accredited testing laboratories according the European standard for bullet resistance DIN EN 1522+1523 (table and UL752 standard see below). Despite the high security all products have an appealing design according to the requirements of the customer.

Sophisticated solutions for your security:

  • Windows, facades, aluminum- steel plate or steel frame doors certified up to the highest resistant level FB7 NS.
  • Furthermore protection against all portable fully automatic weapons including machine guns such as AK-47, AK-74, G3, M16, MG3.
  • Security combinations against further threats: bullet resistant up to level FB7 NS combined with forced entry resistance up to RC4 / RC5, blast resistant up to a pressure of 880 kPa (8.8bar / steel doors to 2750kPa (27.5bar), fire and smoke resistant up to EI90/ S200.
  • All advance tests are carried out in our own ballistic testing center. This allows an optimized product design and under or over-sized security construction are avoided.
  • We recommend complete secured elements incl. bullet-resistant wall connections (bullet resistant installation of the frame into the masonry).
  • Reliable and durable hardware systems: despite of high wing or casement weights (door up to 600 kg | window up to 300 kg) because of heavy bullet resistant glazing and strengthen profiles the SAELZER doors and windows are easy to use.
  • For weight reduction optional polycarbonate glazing can be used.
  • Optional: integration in a supervisory system, integration of glass breakage detectors, electric locking systems, signal contacts and more.
  • Further tests:
    - VPAM APR 2006
    - US-DOS SD-STD-01.01 Rev.G
    - UL 752 (see table below)
    - GOST R 51112-97
