This document specifies requirements and classification systems for burglar resistant characteristics 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 also covers products that include items such as letter plates or ventilation grilles. It specifies requirements for the burglar resistance of a construction product (as defined in 3.1 of this document).
NOTE 1 – The elements of curtain walling will be assigned to group 1 to 4 product depending on their design.
This document does not directly cover the resistance of locks and cylinders to attack with picking tools. Building hardware are components of the above mentioned products and cannot be classified as such according to this document.
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 2 – 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.
The requirements to an electronic security system (e.g. access control system) to control electromechanical locks and strikes according to EN 14846:2008 are not in the scope of this document.
NOTE 3 – Locks and striking plates according to EN 14846:2008 needs an access control system for authorized and secure access (comparable to a lock cylinder). The transmission of the signal between the lock and the access control system (e.g. wiring) needs also consideration. (The signal is transmitted in encrypted form or is not accessible during the manual attack attempt.) Upcoming revisions of this document might include such a reference.
