Unfortunately the society we live in today is an unnerving one, with increasing amounts of media coverage about break-in’s, thefts/robberies and acts of terrorism. Windows can be one of the most vulnerable parts of a building, especially if they are the originals with single pane glazing, most often the case in Listed and heritage buildings.
Selectaglaze secondary glazing can provide an unseen level of security to any property. It creates a second barrier of protection from the inside that can prevent the most determined thief or protect the occupants from the effects of bomb blast. You may be looking to find ways to secure the contents of your building; be it physical high value objects or highly sensitive data or the people within. If this is the case, secondary glazing could provide the solution.
Selectaglaze has a growing range of accredited security products, to meet different requirements and levels. A number of the products have been assessed to PAS24:2016 the SBD Police preferred specification. Secured by Design is a police crime prevention initiative. The test for the standard simulates forced entry by the use of static loading as well as manipulation using simple tools. These units have been designed to withstand a medium risk attack, most likely by a burglar who will spend more time trying to manipulate and force entry via the frame, rather than break the glass. To resist the forces applied, the specialist units have been designed with multipoint locking and the flexibility to be glazed with anti-bandit laminated glass. Products which are awarded PAS24 also comply with Building Regulation Part Q: Security – Dwellings.
In addition to the SBD units, Selectaglaze also had products tested and passed to provide; protection against a planned attack – LPS1175 SR1 – SR3, blast mitigation – ISO 16933 and resistance to a ballistic attack – EN1522/EN1523. The enhanced frames and specialist locks have been designed to enable sympathetic yet robust treatments to provide reassurance and a duty of care for those using the building.
Selectaglaze will be exhibiting at London Build on the 23rd and 24th October, on stand G36 at Olympia, showcasing a range of their standard and security products.
