This document specifies a test method for the determination of resistance to static loading in order to assess the burglar resistant properties of pedestrian doorsets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters. It is applicable to the following opening functions: Turning, tilting, folding, turn-tilting, top or bottom hung, sliding (horizontally and vertically), pivoted (horizontally and vertically), projecting, and rolling as well as non-openable constructions.
It is acknowledged that there are two aspects to the burglar resistance performance of construction products, their normal resistance to forced operation and their ability to remain fixed to the building. This test method does not evaluate the performance of the fixing to the building.
The manufacturer's installation instructions will give guidance on the fixing of the product.
An example for the contents of the manufacturer’s installation instructions is given in EN 1627:2021, Annex A.
This document does not apply to walls and roofs, as well as for 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 13241:2003+A2:2016.
NOTE – It is important that construction products that can be reached or driven through by vehicles are protected by appropriate measures such as barriers, extensible ramps, etc.
