Every three and a half minutes there is a burglary in Germany. And not only at nights, but also during the day, when the occupants are not at home. Above all, burglars enter homes through windows or balcony or terrace doors. And it is precisely here where many burglary attempts are foiled by the right security technology. If the burglar fails to enter within a very short time, they quickly start looking for another building. So it is always worth your while to invest in modern security measures. Not least of all, security also means living quality.
Safe windows and doors are fitted with special glazing, burglar resistant frames and fittings, and additional locks or grilles. Depending on your individual security needs, you can choose from a range of resistance classes between RC 1 and RC 6. Generally, the resistance classes RC 1 and RC 2 prove adequate.
Yet you too can do something to protect yourself and your home – with quite simple means. Close all windows and doors, even when you are out for a short time only. Never leave the windows in the tilted or ventilating position – not even on higher floors. Burglars will otherwise feel invited, especially when garden furniture or ladders make it easier for them to gain access.
Explain your individual needs to your specialised window maker. He will advise you on the right solution. Bear in mind: Only proper installation ensures full protection against forced entry.
