Window Protection

by msecadm4921

Windows have traditionally been seen as “soft targets” for physical attack and points of entry for intruders and have provided little protection against bomb blast – whether from the remote car bomb or the specifically targeted “parcel” by the window. So report secondary glazing product firm Selectaglaze.

Flying glass can be a main cause of injury to those in a building that suffers from a blast. Building owners and managers therefore have a duty under their health and safety obligations to consider the risks. Selectaglaze has developed a range of window protection products, starting with low level blast or anti-bandit and building to higher levels requiring full certification. Selectaglaze reports that its products have been certified to offer a high level of hazard protection when tested to Class EXR1 of BS EN 13123 and to draft standard ISO 16933. Physical attack (LPS1175) requires products to resist sustained attack against a variety of tools. A selection of Selectaglaze’s products have achieved Security Rating 2, which must resist tools such as a claw hammer, screwdrivers, pipe wrench and a hand drill.

The firm is also certified by Secured by Design – the police initiative supporting the principles of "designing out crime" by use of crime prevention and security standards for a range of applications,.

Selectaglaze adds that it has launched a bespoke brochure which details the company’s security range of window protection products. It outlines window styles and capabilities, with applications, special features, and test certifications.
