Standard history

This European Standard defines a test procedure to permit classification of the bullet resistance of windows, doors, shutters and blinds (complete with their infills).
This European Standard concerns only behaviour in respect of the frame of the windows,  doors, shutters or blinds, their infills and the junctions between the infills and frames.
If the windows and doors are subjected to specific conditions of climate, specific conditions of test may be required.
It does not apply to the testing of glass infills. For the testing of glass infills refer to
EN 1063.
This European Standard gives no information on the behavior of the frame subjected to other types of stresses.
It gives no information on the bullet resistance to the junction between the frame and the wall or other surrounding structure.
Shutters and blinds must be tested separately and not in conjunction with a window or door, in order to achieve classification in terms of bullet resistance.
