Protect your home
Protection and security are basic human needs. Do you want to feel secure within your own four walls? Then don't leave anything to chance. Your motto should be "trust is good, but control is better". Insist on burglary-resistant window designs since half of all burglars get in through the window, not the door. They simply lever out the window in a matter of seconds. Stop them in their tracks by choosing burglary-resistant windows. Windows made from GEALAN profiles provide an impressive level of security thanks to their installation depth, material strength, additional barriers and secure hardware in the frame and sash. Just to be safe, we put our windows through their paces. An authorised testing institute certifies that our windows offer security for the different opening mechanisms, designs, and applications. So you can be sure.
Resistance classes RC 2 / RC 2 N
Windows from resistance classes RC 2 and RC 2 N offer protection against break-in attempts by opportunistic burglars using simple tools like large screwdrivers, pliers and cotters. While there are no stipulations about glazing standards for the RC 2 N class as yet, the glazing for RC 2 – which is equivalent to the old resistance class WK 2 that was valid until 2011 – and above must conform to EN 356. The two resistance classes are particularly recommended for ground-floor windows and windows in basements that are not immediately visible from the outside.
Laminated Glass Option
Strengthened glass is designed to act as an anti-burglar solution for your home’s safety.
It’s toughened to be able to resist strong impacts (like someone attempting to smash through your doors and windows to access your home). It’s also designed so that it won’t shatter as easily as the standard glass you might get in your property’s doors and windows.
To make it stronger than your average glass, toughened glass is made up of several panes (sheets) of glass, each separated by a transparent film. This type of strengthened glass is commonly called laminated glass.
