SCHÜCO ALUMINUM SYSTEMS
Schüco aluminum systems also offer numerous and varied application options in the area of mechanical safety, which can be easily and invisibly combined with the standard systems from Schüco. The Schüco system solutions for more security are geared towards one essential criterion: The external aesthetics are retained because the protective mechanisms are predominantly integrated inside the elements.
With burglar-resistant windows, doors and facades from Schüco, holistic and tested safety is always acquired. All individual components are coordinated with one another. Test certificates and nameplates in the fold provide evidence of this. “You can’t get anything from me”, “I’m insured”, “Burglars come in everywhere”, “Burglars come at night”: Sounds familiar? Every four minutes there is a break-in in this country. In around 66% of all cases, windows and doors are simply levered out. Year after year, billions in damages are caused by this. Not to mention the non-material, irretrievable values or the physical and psychological damage to the victims whose privacy was intruded. That is why Schüco systems already offer a high level of basic security as standard: The strength of the thermally insulated aluminum profiles and the processing according to specified manufacturing and assembly documents prevent it from being levered out quickly. The longer an element withstands, the greater the likelihood that the culprit will be noticed. Special additional equipment can increase protection even further: additional lever protection in the frame, safety locks and fittings, safety glazing and panels that can withstand even heavy equipment.
The technical equipment of windows and doors in forensic and psychiatric clinics as well as prisons, police, court or customs buildings must meet the highest security requirements. Schüco offers many solutions for these facilities to protect against the risk of breakout, injury and suicide. Escape-preventing elements such as windows, doors and facades are security systems that are used in the following building types, among others: correctional facilities, police, court or customs buildings, forensic and psychiatric clinics. The primary goal is to ensure the protection of everyone in the building. It is not only about preventing outbreaks, but also about protecting endangered patients and inmates from the risk of suicide or injury. In addition, the staff must be able to handle the windows and doors without any problems in order to ensure that their daily work runs smoothly. Since there are currently no standards for breakout-resistant windows and doors, these can only be adequately checked. In order to still give planners and users a secure basis, Schüco draws on its know-how and experience in the field of burglar resistance.
In the contract business in particular, you will find areas where, in addition to burglary protection, bullet-resistant solutions are also required. These include banks and insurance companies, post offices, government agencies and retail stores. Schüco also offers the right systems for this area and, of course, all components are perfectly matched to one another and, as a whole, comply with the applicable safety regulations. Additional security components for bullet-resistant elements are: bullet-resistant reinforcement profiles, bullet-resistant Schüco Protect glazing, bullet-resistant panels, security fittings (optional).
In view of the increased number of attacks worldwide, the need for security is growing in all countries. In addition to protection against fire, this also includes protection against explosive effects. Here, the need for windows, doors and facades that prevent the effects of explosions increases noticeably. Schüco also offers optimal security in this sensitive market segment with perfectly coordinated systems. With its explosion-resistant systems, Schüco also offers perfectly coordinated systems for optimum security in this sensitive market segment.
