Building intrusion is a relatively common crime. In addition to their valuables being stolen, it can potentially cause long-term anxiety for the people whose homes were broken into.
Anti-intrusion doors and windows are not only used to discourage the thief, but also to slow down attempts to enter the building. Often, as soon as the thief sees that they cannot enter fast enough, they give up.
Anti-intrusion building components are therefore an effective means of intrusion protection. They may carry the CE marking in accordance with the EU construction products directive. However, contrary to what most consumers think, this CE marking does not attest to anti-intrusion performance.
Good intrusion protection requires the installation of products whose reliability is certified by BENOR-i3, a voluntary seal of approval that attests to their quality.
