For jewelers: RC2, RC3 or RC4 windows?

RC2 Fenster oder RC3 Fenster?
RC1 Fenster - 0 min.

RC1 windows:

no burglary protection, not recommended
RC2 Fenster - 1-3 min.

RC2-RC3 windows:

with respect to the value of your exhibits, normally not an adequate burglary protection.
RC3 und RC4 Fenster - 5-10min.

RC4 - RC6 windows:

effective up to perfect burglary protection for jewelers. Around 10 to 20 minutes resistance time when combined with SILATEC P6B or P8B safety glass.

Our recommendation for jewelers:

01  |  

Safety windows starting with class RC4

Plus glass type SILATEC P6B/EH1. For especially valuable exhibits: RC5 or RC6 windows plus glass of the type SILATEC P8B/EH3. Caution: The standard is not adequate, especially not for jewelers. Because the burglary protection standard for RC1 to RC6 windows does NOT test the decisive weak point - the glass! Our solution - especially developed for this purpose - are walls of glass: 5000 burglaries in jeweler display windows have been prevented in the last 40 years. These standards are good and important but the criminal reality is decisive. Take advantage of our experience.

02  |  

Fix glazings for windows

Because they cannot be opened and that is good: The burglary protection is better by a magnitude.

03  |  

Absolute safe glass.

Because the glass will always be attacked. We recommend SILATEC P6B/EH1, or even better SILATEC P8B/EH3.

04  |  

Deep glass protrusion.

The further the glass protrudes into the frame, the safer will it be held. We recommend around 25 mm glass protrusion or more, especially for large and floor-deep display windows. This makes you significantly safer than when using the often used 15 mm, for example, against “pressing”.

05  |  


A sealing seam with “adhering” silicone is safer than a rubber lip seal, which is only pressed between glass and frame to keep water out. The sealing keeps the pane safer in the frame, on the outside and the inside.

06  |  

Inside or outside installation?

Both is possible and has advantages and disadvantages. For large safety panes, we normally recommend the installation from the outside. The pane must, for example, be exchanged as quickly as possible after a burglary attempt, and this is easier from the outside, because on the inside, the store equipment is often in the way. Caution: The pane must be additional secured when installed at the outside, to ensure that burglars do not simply dismantle the pane from the outside. How does that work? Inquire about it.

ArmoredSILATEC glass

Armored glass?
SILATEC glass is 20 times

Armored glass:

green tint
No UV protection
SILATEC glass:

light weight
crystal clear
20 times safer
100% UV protection

We develop safety glass especially for display windows. Because traditional armored glass is not only dramatically unsafe - it is also thick, heavy and has a green tint. SILATEC safety glass in contrast is crystal clear and lets the exhibits show in their natural colors. The colors are maintained and do not fade thanks to the 100 percent UV filter. Valuable furniture and carpets and sensitive materials such as leather, fabrics or wood are also not affected.

Recently at the jeweler:
poor burglars.

Bulgari in Rome:
Two burglars,
one truck, zero chance.
