The best anti-theft system is a manufacturing quality and durable
Clearly, the first anti-theft brake or closing a window should be the quality of manufacture of the window relative to its own strength. For manufacturers of windows and walls, the definition of strength classes is subject to DIN V ENV 1672. This standard establishes four classes of resistance are evaluated according to the profile of the thief, his method, place, risk, and use recommended from WK 1 to WK 4.
WK 1: The elements have basic protection against attempts to log in using physical force, such as kicking, lunging against the door with his feet or shoulders, lift and go.These elements have little protection against only levers.
WK 2: The casual thief tries to break the element closed and locked with the additional help of simple tools such as screwdrivers, pliers and wedges
