The SAELZER Series

High-level security in combination with filigree frame construction and expansive glazing – SAELZER series achieve this demanding goal by using custom developed profiles. Our proprietary designs are precisely adapted to the individual safety classes by individual configuration of materials, structure, static layout, component connections and fittings. More than 250 patents and over 900 test certificates and expert opinions confirm our claim to sustainable security related reliability of our series.

The SAELZER product range is divided into six series with individually balanced safety profiles and design priorities. Taken as a whole, this "System SAELZER®“ enables customers and planners to configure almost any of our products with combined safety features including forced entry, bullet and blast resistance and in some cases even fire and smoke protection. Furthermore, we have focused on versatility in design, enabling precise adaptation of our security products to individual applications as well as modern and traditional architectural styles.

Series S1es

Security façades and partition walls in the SAELZER Series S1es represent our expertise in building security in one consistent complete system solution. Custom developed patented profiles with profile face widths as narrow as 50/60 mm have been tested to resist blast waves caused by up to 500kg of explosives. Forced entry, bullet and blast resistance may easily be combined with modern transparent façade design.

Designed as a post and mullion construction in either aluminium or steel-aluminium, Series S1es façades may be realized in numerous tested design variants. They are also prepared to integrate different functional elements like doors and windows. On the technological basis of Series S1es, SAELZER also offers customer and application specific solutions including testing and certification, resulting in individual security concepts totally in line with architecture and style.

Series S2es

Uncompromisingly high security levels combined with the frame material aluminium defined the development targets of the SAELZER Series S2es. We achieved this goal by combining profiles of narrow face widths and higher depths with special inner reinforcements. They are strong and resistant enough to carry the high loads of expansive triple safety insulation glass units with highest thermal insulation levels. Custom developed door fittings as well as proven and tested component connections are designed to smoothly move and carry heavy element and door loads on a long-term low-maintenance basis.

Despite their high safety class ratings, Series S2es security doors, windows and partitions feature an attractive design which may be individualized in many tested and approved variants - all with elegant profile views and smooth glass bars with concealed screws. The windows of Series S2es may optionally be equipped with our patented extra safety lock SAELOX®.

SAELZER Series S2es – safety classes

  • forced entry resistance up to RC5
  • bullet resistance up to FB7-NS
  • blast resistance up to EXR3, additionally tested with 100kg, 250kg, 500kg of explosives (GSA2)

 

Series S4

Forced entry resistance and break-out protection, bullet and blast resistance as well as fire and smoke protection on the highest levels - the SAELZER Series S4 offers freely combinable solutions for multi-functional security demands. Sturdy profiles of high depth made out of high strength steel sheets are combined with the most robust doors, frames and hinges for extreme weights and heavy multi-functional glazing units. Smooth operation, long-term low-maintenance use is guaranteed by extra strong fittings and hinges.
