The certification programme “DIN EN 1627” regulates the course of the certification procedure for burglary-resistant doors, windows, curtain wallings, lattice elements and shutters. The certificates issued by Holzforschung Austria are used by the German police for listing in the manufacturer's directory "tested and certified burglary-resistant products" (KPK list or programme K-burglary).
The certification programme "DIN EN 1627" is intended to ensure the protective effect of burglary-resistant doors, windows, curtain wallings, lattice elements and shutters. In addition to the initial inspection in accordance with EN 1627 – 1630, regular external monitoring is carried out. This is to ensure that the burglary-resistant components are manufactured within the framework of the technical documentation approved by the certification body. The certificates issued can be recognized by insurance companies as proof of burglary resistance. A valid DIN EN 1627 certificate confirms that the respective company fulfills all requirements of DIN EN 1627 and is regularly externally monitored by Holzforschung Austria according to the requirements of the certification programme “DIN EN 1627”.
Recognition from other organizations
The certificates issued by Holzforschung Austria are used by the German police for listing in the manufacturer's directory "tested and certified burglary-resistant products" (KPK list or programme K-burglary). The manufacturers' directories are updated every six months and can be viewed on the Internet. Holzforschung Austria carries out initial tests on burglary-resistant products and external monitoring for other certification organizations (such as DIN CERTCO and ECB-S European Certification Body).
Burglary-resistant elements are divided into six resistance classes. Resistance class RC2 has been established as the basis, offering protection against casual offenders (using simple lever tools, e.g. screwdrivers). Resistance class RC3 offers more protection, a 70 cm long crowbar is additionally used for testing here. You will find further information to help you choose the right resistance class.
We carry out the initial tests of burglary-resistant windows, doors, facades, lattices and shutters in accordance with the standards ÖNORM EN 1627, EN 1628, EN 1629 and EN 1630 as well as in accordance with DIN EN 1627.
Not everything must be tested! Starting with a test programme agreed on with us, the most representative designs can be tested in the laboratory and design variants can be released with an evaluation report.
Holzforschung Austria carries out the external monitoring for certification according to DIN EN 1627 throughout Europe and worldwide. We also work for other certification organizations (such as Austrian Standards, DIN CERTCO and ECB-S European Certification Body).
