These are the grilles approved according to the new classifications in EN 1627-1630 Aug 2018

Just a few years ago, the product standards for doors, windows, shutters, gates and fittings changed, and new certificates could be issued after thorough testing with hydraulic pressure, swing pendulum and burglary attempts with tools at the Danish Technological Institute. This is very different and much more demanding than it was previously, and therefore the old SKAFOR approvals can not be compared to the new ones that Alux has received over several years of developing our products.

EN 1627-1630 is a common European standard for performance determinations in connection with burglary attempts via windows and doors issued by Danish Standard according to proposal from CEN/TC 33 European Committee.

The standard consists of four parts:

• EN 1627 Specification for fittings and the production of testing elements.
• EN 1628 Static test.
• EN 1629 Dynamics test.
• EN 1630 Manual test (burglary attempt) with standard tool kit

The standard is divided into six classes according to durability. The classes are from RC1 to RC6, and RC stands for Resistance Class. The higher the class the grille is approved for, the longer the time a thief must use to break through it, and the more professional the tool the thief uses must be.

Below you will find the grilles and rolling shutters that Alux has had approved under the new standards:
