Measures to enhance security against break-ins
If you decide to invest in EHRET window shutters featuring a closed insert, you are benefiting from the number-one choice in enhanced security. The insert – available in smooth or slatted versions – has an impact on the security of the shutters. Aluminium window shutters with closed inserts (closed models) therefore afford intruders hardly any opportunity for breaking in.
Fittings and other options for added security
Various security elements further enhance anti-intruder protection because they ensure that window shutters cannot be broken open or unhinged without additional effort. The security catches and locking ring for the express hinge provide protection against unhinging – regardless of whether the sash is hung in the reveal or not.
In addition, Burg rods and rod locks installed on the interior of the window shutter offer yet more protection against intruders. The effective additional locking mechanisms can be operated easily once the window shutters have been closed.
EHRET security models with resistance class RC2
EHRET anti-intruder protection is DIN-tested. The specially developed security frame has been designed to match EHRET window shutters perfectly and offers extra security as well as a level of protection that meets the criteria of resistance class RC2. The frame, which is welded on all four sides, and the TSW-S and TIZO-S reinforced window shutters have been tested in accordance with EN 1627 by the ift Rosenheim testing institute and have RC2 certification. Plus, easy installation is guaranteed as the security frame is delivered completely preinstalled with the required model.
