RC3, RC4 or RC6 security doors?
Side and basement entrances to private homes which are difficult to see are preferred by burglars because they can infiltrate the building undisturbed. But commercial buildings, such as offices and warehouses, are also not safe from burglar and should be protected accordingly. We therefore recommend installing a security door in order to achieve effective protection against break-ins.
Security doors are divided into 6 different resistance classifications: RC1 to RC6, (RC = resistance class, formerly WK1, WK2, WK3, WK4, WK5, WK6). RC6 designates the highest resistance classification. For residences, resistance classifications RC2 to RC3 are normally sufficient. Resistance classification RC3 is recommended for normal office buildings. Of course, a higher resistance classification is also possible. Professional advice, for example from police information centres, provides information on the necessity of additional special equipment such as alarms or panic locks. Since 1.02.2010, the outside door standard DIN EN 14351-1 is binding. For this reason, all security doors for outside use receive the CE-mark. In addition, a certificate of conformity is attached to the doors, which contains information about the product's performance data.
