Protection from life-threatening events

Safety is a subjective feeling that varies in intensity from one individual to another. However, it is always true that we only feel comfortable where we also feel safe

In private homes this can be protection against burglary, in public buildings it is the certainty that in the event of fire rapid evacuation is ensured by an escape and rescue route

Other requirements, such as bullet and blast resistance, protect not only human life but also property from loss and irrevocable destruction. It goes without saying that the technical safety of building elements such as windows and doors should always be ensured.

Fire protection - protecting human life and property from devastating flames

The aftermath of the fire at Düsseldorf Airport on 11 April 1986, one of the biggest fire disasters in the Federal Republic of Germany, had considerable consequences in terms of building law: among other things, it resulted in the prohibition of certain building materials; the requirements for air-conditioning and ventilation systems were tightened and the installation of smoke extraction systems to keep escape routes clear was prescribed

Since then, doors in the course of escape and rescue routes have also been uncompromisingly tested during building acceptance to ensure that they reliably fulfil their function in the event of a fire.

Smoke protection - preventing the spread of toxic smoke gases

In a fire, smoke is always produced in addition to flames. Experts therefore recommend that fire doors should always be designed as smoke protection doors. Smoke is a gas that contains minute particles that can be extremely toxic - just a few breaths of the odourless gases carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide inevitably lead to death

For public buildings, the legislator therefore requires smoke protection doors, but these can also protect against smoke poisoning in residential buildings.

Smoke protection doors are required by law for public buildings. However, these can also protect against smoke poisoning in private areas.

Safety - The different facets

At times of increasing overcrowding in our cities, growing environmental problems and greater mobility, many people are feeling a greater desire for reliable security and safety. Because security and safety are topics that affect us all, statutory legislation specifies minimum safety standards that must be observed. On top of these, subjective or perceived security is becoming ever more important.

Burglary protection - windows, doors and facades that offer resistance

Finding your own home ransacked is a harrowing experience. The home represents a place of retreat, a shelter that is actually invulnerable. By forcibly entering this shelter, the perpetrators not only cause property damage but also destroy the victim's sense of security

Most victims of burglary continue to struggle with the psychological effects of the crime long after the financial damage has been absorbed. Many victims also blame themselves for having failed to secure their home - and unfortunately this is often enough the case.

Unsecured windows and doors make it easy for the perpetrators.

Burglar-resistant windows and doors made of steel profile systems can protect against this unpleasant experience.

Bullet resistance - calculable protection against attacks with firearms

Although the possession of firearms is subject to special conditions in Germany and many countries around the world, they potentially pose a considerable danger, as they are repeatedly used in terrorist attacks and other crimes

In particular, people in the public eye can also be targeted by criminal perpetrators in their private sphere, as the recent cold-blooded murder of the Kassel district president Walter Lübcke on his domestic terrace showed

Bullet-resistant windows and doors made of steel profile systems, as used in military and particularly endangered public and commercial buildings, can also provide more security in private surroundings.

Bullet resistance

If bullet resistance of a building component is required, it is usually advisable to make the accessible entrance and facade areas burglar-resistant at the same time.

Explosion protection - Safe protection against terror and violence

It is impossible to imagine contemporary architecture without large glass facades. Protecting them against explosion sounds impossible at first - and yet it is feasible. The supporting structure plays a decisive role in this: highly resilient steel profile systems from Jansen are virtually predestined to withstand the immediate, dynamic load of an explosion.

It is no longer possible to imagine contemporary architecture without large-scale glass façades. They protect the interior of the building from the effects of weather, heat loss and solar radiation.

Technical safety - For perfectly functioning and durable windows and doors, facades and fixed glazing

The demand for technical safety includes many aspects: The serviceability of building elements is just as much a part of it as the long-term functional efficiency of windows, French windows and doors or the load-bearing capacity of safety devices

In recent times, the demand for protection against the emission of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) has been added. Technical safety is a quality feature to which Jansen attaches great importance in the development and production of steel profile systems for windows and doors, facades and fixed glazing.
