This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for security glazing designed to resist actions of force by delaying access of objects and/or persons to a protected space for a short period of time. This standard classifies security glazing products into categories of resistance to actions of force.
In this European Standard, the categories of resistance have bot been assigned to special applications. Selection of categories should be made by the user for every individual case, after consulting an expert if necessary.
This European Standard deals with mechanical resistance to attack only. Other properties can also be important, for which separate standards will be prepared.
