Heroal makes things twice as difficult for burglars, as the ift independent institute for window technology in Rosenheim confirms. The combination of a heroal W 72 or 77 W window system and heroal RS 37 RC 3 high-grade steel roller shutters meets all requirements of resistance class RC 4, deterring even violent offenders.
Breaking it off instead of breaking in
Ground floor windows are particular popular targets for burglars. Police therefore recommend the use of windows of resistance class RC 2 for preventing break-ins by opportunistic offenders. However, if the location and circumstances mean that it is possible for intruders to avoid being interrupted, even whilst making noise with loud tools, more effective protection may be necessary. For heroal this is good reason for exceeding the recommendations – both with the heroal W 72 and W 77 window systems and with the heroal RS 37 RC 3 high-grade steel roller shutters. Tested separately by ift Rosenheim, they afford burglary resistance of resistance class RC 3, and in combination even resistance class RC 4. Even experienced, violent offenders with cordless drills, sawing and hammering tools cannot penetrate the building during the relevant test period of 30 minutes – a period of time during which most offenders will have long since abandoned their attempts.
Valuable protection with a high-quality look
With a stable curtain, anti-push-up device and strengthened guide rails, the RS 37 RC 3 high-grade steel roller shutters make it difficult for burglars to penetrate even to the windows. The double-walled high-grade steel rods are extremely stable and resilient. Behind them, the RC mushroom locks and lockable window handles of the heroal W 72 or 77 W window system guard against intruders. The fittings can withstand at least a ton of pressure. Meanwhile the security technology remains invisible from the outside. "The choice of material is also crucial to the high-quality look," explains heroal Product Engineer and Testing Manager Manuel Vergers. "Thanks to its aesthetics and exceptional strength, high-grade steel is perfectly suited for burglary protection with style."
