Burglary-inhibiting technology is one of the key functional requirements of windows and doors. The longer a building element can thwart a burglary attempt, the safer an apartment or house is and the more secure its residents will feel. When it comes to security, mechanical burglary resistance is key. MACO is the expert in manufacturing burglary-resistant hardware and in testing security elements in its own in-house test centre.
The hardware allows the execution of various security levels according to standardised burglary protection as specified in EN 1627 - 1630. The i.S security roller cams and the i.S security strikers are the powerhouses here. Window manufacturers using the MACO system test RC 2 N and RC 2 as licensees can utilise all MACO hinge systems for all approved applications in the system matrix. This includes all hinge systems for timber and PVC in the MACO MULTI-MATIC hardware range.
Z-TF 3-latch door lock
The standard-compliant resistance time of three minutes for a locked single-sash door against tools such as screwdrivers, pliers and wedges has been verified for the MACO PROTECT Z-TF cylinder-operated 3-latch door lock with steel bolts and multifunctional latches. The Z-TF ensures burglary resistance according to class 2 RC / RC 2 N.
Z-TS Security Lock
With the Z-TS door lock you score points in security as it is the smoothest drive gear lock on the market. It runs like Swiss clockwork, but not for burglars. The main lock case can be fitted with four secondary lock cases in hook and bolt combination, so you can upgrade modularly and easily up to nine-way locking.
It is so secure that it was the first lock to be included in Germany's police manufacturer directory for burglar-resistant products.
The steel hook mechanism for RAIL-SYSTEMS lift&slide hardware
The locking technology is similar to multi-locking for front doors. When the door closes, steel hooks engage into the frame-sided flush striker plates without contact, thus providing excellent mechanical protection against burglary. Depending on the individual element equipment, the RC-2 capability of the lift&slide solution is guaranteed.
Security & burglary protection
Secure in the dark winter time
Burglar resistance requires windows that can withstand a burglary attempt as long as possible. The more security pins and locking parts, the more secure. These can be adapted to individual security needs or the required resistance class. The higher the so-called resistance class (RC), the longer the window offers resistance to break-in attempts.
The good thing is that security can also be increased for existing windows where retrofitting is possible for all side-hung and tilt-and-turn windows.
