Interim status to the current research project

The evidence as well as the classification of the burglar resistant properties of windows and doors are made by testing and classification of the building element according to the standards series DIN EN 1627 to DIN EN 1630 [1], [2], [3], [4]. Besides the burglar resistant characteristics of the pure construction element, DIN EN 1627 settles also the assembly of the element. In order to secure the burglar resistance, it is normatively mandatory that also the fixings in combination with the corresponding masonry resist the mechanical burglary attempts. The corresponding standard DIN EN 1627 contains the following specifications for assembly and/or walls (see table 1) in the national foreword:
