Maximum burglary protection for windows and sliding windows

Maximum burglary protection

With resistance class RC4, swissFineLine Protect sliding windows offer the highest level of burglary protection on the market today.

Window quality is a decisive factor in residents’ safety and the security of their possessions. Windows and terrace doors are criminals’ preferred point of entry and are targeted in 87% of burglaries. High-quality burglary protection in window elements often leads burglars to abandon their efforts entirely.

swissFineLine Protect is available in resistance classes RC2, RC3 and RC4 (DIN EN 1627) and thus offers a level of protection tailored to your specific needs.

The higher the resistance class of windows and doors, the harder they are to break in through. Fixtures and structural elements in resistance class RC1 only offer a low level of burglary protection that intruders can often overcome relatively quickly. By contrast, in the higher resistance classes, criminals require far more time and additional equipment to break into a house.

swissFineLine offers windows with resistance class RC4 – a level of protection that can repel even professionally planned burglaries.

No chance for burglars.

swissFineLine windows in resistance class RC4 are capable of repelling even the most extreme break-in attempts with heavy-duty equipment. As a result, they offer maximum personal protection and property security.

The higher the resistance class, the harder it is for criminals to break in. Fixtures and components in resistance class RC1 only offer a low level of burglary protection that intruders can often overcome relatively quickly. By contrast, in the higher resistance classes, criminals require far more time and additional equipment to break in.

Resistance classes in accordance with DIN EN 1627

Best resistance times: the longer a window holds out against an attack, the more likely the criminals are to give up.

RC1

Resistance time: 30 seconds.

Fixtures and components in resistance class RC1 only offer a low level of protection against lever-type tools.

RC2

Resistance time: 3 minutes.

Effective protection against opportunist burglars who attempt to break in through closed, locked windows with simple tools like screwdrivers, pliers and wedge tools.

RC3

Resistance time: 5 minutes.

Thwarts break-in attempts that attempt to open the locked window with a second screwdriver, a crowbar or a simple drilling tool.

RC4

Resistance period 10 minutes.

The experienced perpetrator will additionally use sawing tools and striking tools, such as an axe, a crowbar, a hammer and chisel, as well as a cordless power drill.

High-tech glass for maximum burglary protection

  • swissFineLine Protect elements are made from laminated safety glass that consists of a combination of matching layers of glass and polyvinyl butyral, which complement and reinforce each other’s safety features
     
  • This combination provides the glass pane with a residual structural capacity even when subjected to extreme force
     
  • If broken, the glass will adhere to the polyvinyl butyral film, preventing the pane from collapsing and therefore continuing to provide break-in protection
     
  • Tested & certified according to DIN EN 356

Burglary protection from swissFineLine Protect

  • In resistance class RC4, swissFineLine Protect easily withstands even the most brutal attacks and professionally planned break-ins where the perpetrators use sawing and striking tools, such as an axe, a crowbar, a hammer and chisel, or even a cordless power drill
     
  • swissFineLine Protect offers elements in resistance classes RC2, RC3 and RC4, making them suitable for a wide range of requirements.
     
  • Independently certified to DIN EN 1627 by the accredited testing institutes ift Rosenheim GmbH (Rosenheim, Germany) and gbd Zert GmbH (Dornbirn, Austria)

Knowledge is the best protection

  • According to crime statistics published by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, 106 burglaries were recorded per day in 2018. That corresponds to a break-in every 14 minutes.
     
  • In 87% of cases, criminals targeted the windows and terrace doors. In almost 40% of cases, the intruders gained access to the property via sliding doors.
     
  • They usually attempted to force windows and doors open with a screwdriver. Break-in attempts of this type were usually abandoned within a matter of seconds, or a few minutes at most.
     
  • Most burglaries occur during the day after 10am, as criminals assume that nobody will be at home at that time.
