P1A - P5A glass
P6B - P8B glass
SILATEC RC2 panic glass
SILATEC RC3 panic glass
SILATEC RC4 panic glass
Because a common RC2, RC3 or RC4 glazing in accordance with EN 356 is not certified! I.e. P1A - P5A glass common P6B - P8B glass or 8mm polycarbonate. SILATEC panic glass is certified and as burglarproof as the panic door - at least. The glass is also tested according to the standard. By the way: In contrast, the glass will not be tested for RC2,3,4 windows! The standard only specifies P4A or P5A glass? - however, this is already destroyed after a few seconds.

|They depend on the size of the pane, the loads (e.g. wind load) as well as guidelines and regulations|
|mono, i2, i3||monolithic, insulating glass, triple insulating glass|
|U||Thermal transfer coefficient. The smaller the value, the better the heat insulation.|
|TL||Translucence. A larger value means that more light transfers through the glazing|
|g||Total energy permeability. A smaller value means that less energy transfers through the glazing.|
|Rw||Sound insulation measure. The larger the value, the better the sound insulation. The listed values are based on a Krypton filling.|
|AS||Alarm loop. Visible or invisible.|
|SuS||Sun protection coating|
All values are subject to the common tolerances. Adherence to our special glazing guideline is required.

P4A glass or P5A glass:
Resistance time each only
about ten seconds!
SILATEC P6B/P8B glass.
Resistance time about
five to ten minutes!
Unbelievable: The glass does not even get tested! The standard only specifies P4A or P5A glass? - however, this is already destroyed after a few seconds. The recommendation for RC2 and RC3 windows: Glass of type SILATEC P6B. The frame provides three to five minutes resistance, the safety glass also. Easy. (Traditional P6B provides only 30 seconds). For RC4 windows, you should install at least SILATEC P6B, even better SILATEC P6B - because it also withstands ten minutes. At least! Even against ax and sledgehammer.
Explicitly: no. Because both options are not permissible. For burglary resisting emergency exit doors, the glass must have been tested in accordance with EN 1627/1630 in the respective Resistance Class “RC”
Clearly yes. We can produce our RC2,3,4,5,6 panic glass for escape doors also in VSG on the outside - which means on the attack side. As a result, the glass will be about 3 mm thicker, the grammage increases by about 6 kg/m².
We explicitly do not recommend this. Only a continuous safe component offers an holistic protection.
With pleasure. Up to 2,000 x 3,000 mm. This will increase the thickness by about 2 mm, the grammage increases by 5 kg/m².
The material compatibility with the glass edge lamination must be guaranteed - material compatibility analyses may have to be performed in case of doubt. Good results are delivered by Ramsauer 670, a 2 component material. The polycarbonate layer expands with increasing temperatures and therefore, the fold space adhesion must also permit this.
This band “encases” the entire glass edge of our panic glazing, which means it circumferences and encloses it. It protects the SILATEC polycarbonate laminate and the edge laminate of the insulation glazing against outer influences. The edge casing band is approximately 0.3 mm thick and it consists of aluminum with an additionally protecting plastics coating. In encloses the glass edge in a U-form - see graphic.
Yes. Your customer can choose between light, average and strong sun protection. The g-value is decisive: The higher the g-value the higher the energy throughput.
Yes, with our double and triple insulating glasses. The outer, which means the glass pane on the attack side, consists now of ESG.
No. Glass panes for burglarproof emergency exit doors must be certified in accordance with DIN EN 1627/1630 and polycarbonate 8 mm does not have this certification. P4A or P5A glass and common P6B are also not certified.
The RC2 glazing for burglary resisting escape doors must be certified in accordance with DIN EN 1627/1630. This only applies to glass of type SILATEC RC2 panic glass. Burglary resisting glazing as per EN 356, i.e. P4A, P5A or common P6B are not permissible!
The RC3 glazing must be certified for RC3 escape doors in accordance with the respective standard for burglary resisting escape doors (DIN EN 1627/1630). Legally conforming is only glass of type SILATEC RC3 panic glass. Glazings in accordance with EN 356 are also not permissible here, for example P4A, P5A or common P6B.
No. The three terms all mean the same, namely doors that can be opened fast and easily from the inside even in a locked condition to ensure that the escape is successful in an emergency.
That is a “door handle” at a panic door: a horizontal bar or plate that can be used to open the door easily and quickly. Even and especially if a crowd presses against it in case of a panic. DIN EN 1125 regulates panic fittings for public buildings with public traffic. DIN EN 179 is relevant for buildings without public traffic.
DIN EN 1627 specifies how burglary resisting escape doors are tested. The resistance class RC6 offers the highest burglary protection and RC1 offers the lowest protection. WK1 to WK6 designates old, no longer valid, resistance classes.
