In Germany and many other countries, the possession of firearms is tied to special conditions. Nevertheless, weapons pose a considerable danger, as they are used time and again in terrorist attacks and other crimes. People in the public eye, such as high-ranking politicians, officials and businesspeople, in particular, are also the targets of criminals and vulnerable to attack with firearms in the private sphere. Here, bullet-proof windows and doors constructed from steel profile systems – like those used in military buildings and particularly susceptible public and commercial buildings – can provide extra protection.
Bullet-proof windows and doors constructed from steel profile systems
If an element needs to be bullet-proof, it is generally advisable to make the accessible entrance and façade regions bullet-proof as well. However, bullet-proofing may also be required on higher floors, in particular if there are buildings opposite. Windows, doors and façades made of Jansen steel profile systems are tested and approved for FB4 to FB6. As with intrusion protection, the entire component (frame, glass, hinges and fittings) is subjected to the test and classified as a whole – calculable protection, even against higher calibres.
