Protection for people and property – High Security in glass

STADIP PROTECT is a laminated safety glass which offers differing combinations and thicknesses of glass and interlayers to provide passive safety in buildings.

Beware Break-in!

In the whole of Austria there are about 14,000 break-ins per year. Just in the first half of 2009, the rate of thefts increased dramatically. The Austrian criminal statistics followed 4,248 crimes on single-family homes – that is about 40% higher than last year.

According to the Federal Criminal Office, preventional measures such as sensible technical break-in security as well as suitable behaviour are becoming ever more important. Amongst the individual security measures there is no separation between mechanical and electronic measures – they need to be combined.

The more obstacles a burglar faces, the harder it is to get to their goal

Weak point # 1 in single and multi-family homes are terrace and balcony doors and windows. Skylights are also similar weaknesses.. says the criminal investigation department. The installation of anti-bandit window elements with proven resistance classifications are recommended.


Secure windows and doors

Such security elements are available in resistance classifications 1 to 6 in accordance with EN Standard 1627. Thereby it is required that all components such as frame, ironmongery and glass are harmonised. All of these building elements require anti-bandit High Security Glass in accordance with EN Standard 356. These are distinguished in the following safety classes and are available as monolithic or insulating glass units.

Manual attack resistance to EN 356 A – Property protection

The manual attack resistant STADIP PROTECT P-A glass types are differentiated into 5 classes from P1A to P5A. The classifications depend on the amount of impact energy produced my different projectiles.

Manual attack resistance to EN 356 B - Protection for valuables

The manual attack resistant STADIP PROTECT P-B glass types are differentiated into 3 classes from P6B to P8. The requirements assume an attack with heavy tools capable of cutting. The separation of resistance classification is based on worst-case scenarios. An individual risk assessment will determine the exact requirements which ranges from exclusive residences through museums to law enforcement establishments.

Prevention for our utmost safety - High Security Glass for bullet-resistance and explosion protection windows

Kidnappings, hostage-taking and bomb attacks are all well known headlines fomr the international press. The abstract threat from terrorism should not be completely ignored. Incorporating precautionary measures into your property – to increase the passive safety – are sensible contributions to public safety and property security.

Bullet resistance to EN 1063 – Personal protection against firearm attack – CE Level 1

With bullet resistant STADIP PROTECT glass types, the protection characteristics are determined by different types of weapon and munition. The resistance classes are differentiated into splinter-free and splintering types.

Explosion resistance to EN 13541 – Terror protection for buildings and people against effects of explosions

STADIP PROTECT D was developed to protect buildings against the effects of explosions. The pressure wave, which is dependent on the amount of explosive and distance from the explosion, is absorbed by the glazing. Simultaneously, the glazing protects against flying debris and splinters of glass. STADIP PROTECT D is particularly suitable for glazing of public buildings such as airports, military installations and embassies.

Visual comfort

In comparison to regular glass types, thicker compositions and interlayers will have effects on the clarity in transmission and reflection. The thicker the glass is, the stronger the inherent green hue will be. This effect can be significantly reduced by using extra-clear low-iron glass DIAMANT [>].

For special applications which have high requirements for vision, it is also possible to use anti-reflection glass VISION-LITE [>] which reduces reflection and improves transparency.


All STADIP PROTECT Types can be combined with an alarm system – SECURIT ALARM. In one corner of the SECURIT sheet there is an electrical circuit fused to the surface. Should the glass be broken, the specific breakage pattern of SECURIT fully tempered glass causes the electrical circuit to be broken and thereby releases an alarm connected to it. This system is patent protected by DP 2404278 and DP 1278292.
