ADS 90 BR and AWS 90 BR ranges of security door and window systems
Schueco’s ADS 90 BR and AWS 90 BR ranges of security door and window systems have a basic frame depth of only 90 mm but provide top security protection, thermal insulation and weather-tightness.
New Schueco ADS 90 BR and AWS 90 BR door and window systems provide burglar resistance far in excess of the requirements of Secured by Design.
- Constructed from special multi-chambered aluminium profiles
- Enhanced security hardware and P6B security glazing
Extensive official testing to security standard EN V 1627 Resistance Class 4 has confirmed that these systems are suitable in areas where ’a practised burglar anticipates a reasonable reward and is likely to be resolute in his efforts to gain entry … and is less concerned with the level of noise he produces and is prepared to take greater risk.’
Successfully tested with full-height glazing:
- Schueco ADS BR inward- and outward-opening single doors up to 1450 mm wide x 2542 mm high and double doors up to 2690 mm wide x 2565 mm high
- Schueco ADS BR doors incorporating combinations of side- and top-fixed lights
Testing takes the form of a series of static loadings, including 10 kN on locking points, together with a sustained 30-minute manual attack using an assortment of prescribed tools including crowbar, hammer, drill, bolt-cutter, axe and hacksaw.
Schueco AWS 9 0 BR single turn-tilt windows up to 1678 mm wide and 2528 mm high and multi-lights up to 2512 mm x 1880 mm high, have also been certified as reaching EN V 1627 Resistance 4.
The windows utilise Schueco AvanTec concealed fittings to give clean lines and the appearance of a standard window.
In addition to burglar resistance, a variation of these doors and windows also provides ballistic protection to level FB4 of EN 1522/1523.
This means that whatever the level of perceived threat, the occupants of a building have the reassurance of unrivalled protection without the need to live and work behind bars or grilles.
