Preventing burglary is all about buying time. When a burglar finds that it is taking too long to break into a property, the attempted break-in is more often than not abandoned. Hammerglass SINGLE offers increased protection against burglary and vandalism for all types of property, everything from individual shops and shopping centres to public premises. The system is certified as offering protection up to Security Class P8B in accordance with EN 356, which is the level of protection that insurance companies require for particularly high-risk premises. The lightweight panels can be cut to any shape, thus providing great flexibility. As the system is based on replacement glazing in existing window frames, the solution is well-suited to older-type linked sashes and listed buildings.
