Burglar-resistant security windows without compromise with a tested system

Criminal police statistics show that burglaries in private homes and apartments are frequent targets for burglars. Other targets include private villas, critical infrastructure, jewelry stores, museums, state institutions and other objects requiring special protection.

According to current statistics, the clearance rate is around 19%.

This means that the protection of these objects and facilities is of particular importance. Poorly secured windows and doors offer little resistance and thus allow intruders or burglars to break in. The risk of detection is usually low.

However, the statistics also show that burglaries can be prevented by security technology. Because the decisive factor is time. Time that our security windows create. Timm burglar-resistant security windows can withstand even stubborn burglars, delay intrusion and thus gain valuable time for the police or security services.

We offer burglar-resistant security windows in wood, wood-aluminum, aluminum and steel for a wide variety of threat scenarios.

Thanks to our own research and development and our decades of experience in the high-security property business, our security windows have slim face widths across all materials.

The security technology is initially unrecognizable and therefore remains hidden from the perpetrators. Our certified security windows guarantee protection even against experienced perpetrators.

Another option to increase the security of the building and thus the protection against burglary is the use of electronic security components (including alarm glass, alarm sensors, magnetic contacts, bolt contacts), which can be integrated invisibly into the constructions of our security windows. By installing these security components, the windows are monitored for opening, locking and breaching. The components used here correspond to the valid VdS classes A, B & C.

Our own patented security components for increased convenience and security against break-ins round off our portfolio.

All our burglar-resistant security windows are tested and certified against burglary by independent testing institutes in accordance with DIN EN 1627 – 1630 in the form of a static, dynamic and manual tool test to guarantee the highest security standards.

Our references in the field of burglar-resistant security windows include federal institutions (e.g. federal ministries, offices of various constitutional bodies), EU country representations, German embassies, residences of German ambassadors, residential properties of members of various federal and state constitutional bodies, people at risk from politics, business and other areas of public life, courts, police and military facilities and Jewish institutions.

HIGH SECURITY IN PERFECTION

Certified and externally monitored, object testing possible

TIMM security windows are tested and certified in accordance with DIN EN 1627-1630. External quality audits are regularly carried out by the leading window institute ift Rosenheim to ensure a high level of quality assurance. Thanks to our decades of experience and our extensive test certificates, we can provide you with project-specific special solutions for security windows at short notice if required.

Narrowest views despite high security

TIMM security windows also impress with their delicate design, so that our security windows generally do not differ from the basic security windows. With our slim face widths, we enable a visually appealing and unobtrusive external appearance, which is why our windows are often used in listed buildings.

Can be combined with bullet resistance and many additional features

Thanks to “multi-certification” and our high level of expertise, our TIMM security windows can be combined with bullet and blast protection or fire and smoke protection requirements. In addition, our Timm security windows can be equipped with many additional components, e.g. monitoring contacts and alarm glass to monitor the windows for opening, locking and breaching.

TIMM SECURITY WINDOW
REGISTERED IN THE POLICE MANUFACTURER DIRECTORY

Tested and certified burglar-resistant security windows

Due to the increasing number of cases of burglary, the topic of burglary protection is also a particular focus of the work of police crime prevention. The aim is to raise public awareness of effective burglary prevention even more intensively than before. Together with cooperation partners from the insurance industry, industry associations and installation companies, the police launched the nationwide publicity campaign K-EINBRUCH.

Registered in the police manufacturer directory

Hans Timm Fensterbau is registered in the list of manufacturers of “tested and certified burglar-resistant windows” published by the police. Our timber windows, timber-aluminum windows and aluminum windows in resistance classes RC2, RC3 and RC4 are therefore considered “unreservedly recommendable” for good burglary protection. We would be happy to advise you in our showroom.

MOST IMPORTANT COMPONENTS FOR SECURITY WINDOWS

Wall connection

In addition to the burglar-resistant element, the wall connection plays a decisive role.

This must be sufficiently stable and have an appropriate strength in accordance with DIN EN 1627 to withstand mechanical attacks.

We ensure professional installation using tested fixing and sealing materials and specially trained installation personnel.

Glazing

Burglar-resistant elements must be fitted with appropriate attack-resistant glazing in accordance with DIN EN 1627.

Burglar-resistant glazing is defined in DIN EN 356.

We use safety glass in various thicknesses, depending on the requirements profile, as toughened safety glass (TSG), laminated safety glass (LSG) and polycarbonate glass (PC) in our systems.

Glass connection

The glass connection of burglar-resistant elements must be designed in accordance with the resistance classes so that it has sufficient stability and strength.

In order to withstand mechanical attacks, e.g. prying open, puncturing or smashing, our burglar-resistant elements, incl. of the glass connections in accordance with DIN EN 1627-1630.

Lockable window handle

To prevent the hardware from moving, a burglar-resistant window must be fitted with a lockable window handle with a twist-off resistance of 100 Nm in accordance with DIN EN 1627.

These lockable window handles are optionally available with a twist-off resistance of 200 Nm.

In order to prevent the hardware from moving, the gear area and the fastening parts of the window handle must be effectively protected against drilling (so-called drilling protection).

Locking with mushroom head pin

Steel mushroom pins in combination with strikers ensure a secure locking mechanism.

The number of locking points must be designed in accordance with the burglary certification.

Locking piece

The steel strikers must be screwed into the frame in a “pull-out-proof” manner. Suitable window construction screws must be used.

ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT AS AN EXTENDED SAFETY MEASURE

Magnetic contacts

Magnetic locking and opening monitoring systems offer individual solutions for intrusion and hazard detection.

The systems monitor the status of the window or sliding element for opening and closing

The components used here comply with the valid VdS classes A, B & C.

Alarm glass

Alarm glass is toughened glass (ESG) that is equipped with an alarm spider (glass breakage detector).

This can be either visible or completely concealed.

The components used here comply with the valid VdS classes C.

SAFETY GLASS FOR BURGLAR RESISTANCE

Our burglar-resistant security windows are generally fitted with security glass in accordance with DIN EN 1627 – 1630 equipped.

Of course, we also use higher-quality safety glazing at the customer’s request.

Attack-resistant glazing is defined in DIN EN 356 and divided into different resistance classes (P-A and P-B classes).

There are two types of attack-resistant glazing: Glass with the suffix “A” is impact-resistant, glass with the suffix “B” is break-through-resistant.

Safety glasses in the P-A classes

Glasses in the P-A classes are tested with falling balls (DIN EN 356). A metal ball with a diameter of 10 cm and a mass of 4.11 kg is dropped from various heights onto a 110 x 90 cm target. The more film there is between the individual layers of glass, the thicker the pane becomes and the longer it takes for the pane to be broken through.

Penetration-resistant glazing repels spontaneous attacks and offers protection against penetration and vandalism.

For example, a P4A target must withstand the fall of the ball from 9 m three times.

Safety glasses of the P-B classes

Glasses in the P-B classes are tested with a machine-guided axe (DIN EN 356). This involves trying to make a 40 x 40 cm hole in a 110 x 90 cm pane.

The 2 kg axe is struck against the test disk at a speed of 11 m/s (39.6 km/h). The number of strokes simulates the use of different tools.

In deviation from DIN EN 1627, the police recommend the use of glazing in resistance class P6B from resistance class RC3.

A P6B washer, for example, has to withstand between 30 and 50 impacts before it breaks through.

WE USE THREE TYPES OF SECURITY GLASS FOR OUR SECURITY WINDOWS, SECURITY DOORS, SECURITY SLIDING DOORS AND SECURITY FACADES

Toughened
safety glass (ESG)

Toughened safety glass (TSG) is a thermally toughened soda-lime glass in which a strong internal tension is built up through heat treatment. This significantly increases temperature, impact and shock resistance compared to normal float glass. When it breaks, it disintegrates into small, compact cubes, effectively reducing the risk of cuts and impact injuries.

Toughened safety glass (ESG) is mainly used for alarm glass.

Advantages

of toughened safety glass (ESG)

  • Use with alarm glass
  • Increased impact and shock resistance
  • Insensitive to temperature differences
  • Increased flexural strength

In the event of breakage, ESG shatters into many small blunt fragments and triggers the alarm.

Compound
Safety glass (VSG)

Laminated safety glass (LSG) consists of two or more panes with interlayers in between. This is referred to as glass-foil-glass bonding. The number of highly elastic polyvinyl butyral (PVB) films can vary according to the resistance class. The panes are getting thicker and heavier depending on the safety requirements.

Advantages

of laminated safety glass (VSG)

  • Fragments adhere to foil
  • Bullet-resistant (depending on thickness)
  • Speech inhibiting (depending on thickness)
  • Higher sound insulation

Increased burglary protection, minimized risk of injury.

Polycarbonate
glass (PC)

Polycarbonate (PC) is a thermoplastic and is used in particular when classic laminated safety glass reaches its limits (too thick, too heavy) or customers have a special need for protection.

Polycarbonate glass combines the special properties of glass and polycarbonate. Glass is very scratch-resistant and rigid. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is very light, impact-resistant and has a relatively soft surface. The combination of the two materials results in very good and highly transparent safety glass that impresses with its high resistance.

Advantages

of polycarbonate glass (PC)

  • Permanently elastic bonding between glass and PC,
    Glass = scratch-resistant + rigid, PC = impact-resistant
  • Very burglar-proof
  • Very bulletproof
  • Very light
  • High strength and rigidity
  • Excellent impact strength

High protection against burglary attempts
