Burglary protection: a top priority at Aliplast
Turning your house into a warm and cosy home is something we wish you wholeheartedly. And that includes the factor security. Only then will you feel completely at ease. Aliplast's aluminium doors and windows score well in terms of burglary protection of course, but there are a number of extra options to increase your sense of security.
Burglary protection: what and how
Burglary prevention or protection starts with the right choice of joinery. Security is indicated by Resistance Class (RC), based on the EN1627 standard or the European guidelines for burglar resistance of security doors. The higher the class, the higher the burglary protection. For residential structures, this is usually RC2. Burglary protection RC3 can be found in buildings with a higher burglary risk, such as companies, banks and government buildings.
Standard burglary protection for doors and windows
All Aliplast profile systems comply with the RC2 or RC3 standards for burglary protection. Every door, window and sliding system has basic security, and aluminium in itself is a very strong and almost unbreakable material. Yet there are extra precautions to increase security even more. The various options in the choice of hardware, for example, ensure that Aliplast joinery scores top marks on that front and offers additional protection against burglars.
Enhancing burglary protection
So what else can you do to enhance burglary protection?
- Additional security on doors:
Make the standard hinge on doors more secure against burglary by reinforcing the hinges with lift-out protection or dead bolts. This will keep the burglar-proof door in place if the hinges are forced. In addition to reinforcing the hinges, opt for cylinder pull-out protection.
- Multipoint lock
In addition to the standard door locks for both sliding and wicket doors, you can choose the Aliplast 7-point lock for burglary protection. The door is then locked better, so burglars will need to make much more of an effort to force it and will soon abandon your home.

- Window security
Have your windows fitted with extra secure two-star hardware, recognizable by the logo. In addition, you can choose to exchange a standard handle for one with a cylinder lock for top burglary protection.
- Burglar-resistant glass
In addition to burglar-resistant profiles, burglar-resistant glass is also an important factor for enhancing burglary protection. It is the burglar-resistant film in the glass that prevents the glass from breaking.
