Pedestrian door-sets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters - Burglar resistance - Requirements and classification
This European Standard specifies requirements and classification systems for burglar resistant characteristics of pedestrian door-sets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters. It is applicable to the following means of opening: Turning, tilting, folding, turn-tilting, top or bottom hung, sliding (horizontally and vertically) and rolling as well as fixed constructions. It also covers products that include items such as letter plates or ventilation grilles. It specifies requirements for the burglar resistance of a construction product (as defined in 3.1 of this standard).
This European Standard does not directly cover the resistance of locks and cylinders to attack with picking tools. It also does not cover precast concrete elements.
It also does not cover the attack of electric, electronic and electromagnetic operated burglar resistant construction products using attack methods that might defeat these characteristics.
NOTE 1 The mechanical parts of electric, electronic and electromagnetic operated burglar resistant construction products may be tested in electrical powerless condition.
This European Standard does not apply to doors, gates and barriers, intended for installation in areas in the reach of persons, and for which the main intended uses are giving safe access for goods and vehicles accompanied or driven by persons in industrial, commercial or residential premises, as covered by EN 13241-1.
NOTE 2 Construction products that can be reached or driven through by vehicles should be protected by appropriate measures such as barriers, extensible ramps, etc.
