Burglary resistance as per RC2, RC2 N and RC3
The criminal investigation department of the German police recommends the use of resistance class RC2 or RC3 for easily accessible windows, such as those on the ground floor, in the basement, or on balconies. For RC2 N, the recommendation only applies to a limited extent due to the undefined security level of the glazing. Even with RC2, the all-round fitting system with octagonal locking bolts, steel keeps on the frame, lockable window handle and anti-drilling protection ensure excellent resistance to attempted break-ins. RC3 windows are equipped with an even higher number of octagonal locking bolts at small distances between locking points. They can also withstand intensive burglary attempts with tools.
Minimum glazing requirements
RC2 N: None
RC2: Safety glass as per EN 356, class P4A
