Safety and Security
Protection of people
The protection of people is an essential element for public buildings such as schools, hospitals or offices. Windows are one of the architectural elements with which users interact most in their daily lives. It is therefore important that windows and doors offer an adequate level of safety, preventing improper use and therefore safeguarding people from potential accidents.
Giesse offers a range of products for tilt-and-turn and casement aluminum windows, capable of satisfying the security and protection needs of the user.
"Logica" tilt-first safety mechanism
The “Logica” solution reverses the classic tilt-and-turn mechanism: with a 90° cremone, the door opens tilted, while with a 180° cremone it is side-hung.
It is particularly recommended for use in public buildings such as schools and hospitals, combined with a Key Capture cremone. This combination enables the window to be fully opened only by the person in possession of the key, while ordinary users can only open it as a bottom-hung window, to change the air in total safety.
“Logica” is available for all Giesse Tilt-and-Turn solutions.
Key Capture cremone
The Security Sash hardware enables the sash to be only opened slightly, in order to protect the users. Based on how the arm is regulated, the sash opens for a maximum of 10 cm with cremone at 90°, guaranteeing the recirculation of air without the risk of accidents occurring. The sash can be opened fully by rotating the cremone to 180°, only if a key is present.
Available in a version with horizontal fastener and vertical fastener, depending on the position of the limitation arms.
Vertical fasteners version also available
Max opening without key: 10 cm
Key Capture cremone

Protection of the building
Every opening in the building is, by definition, a potential access point for attackers. A secure window or door is the result of a combination of several factors: the profile, the glass and the hardware.
Giesse offers a range of components for burglar-proof windows, certified according to the strictest standards on the market.
The European standards EN 1627 to EN 1630 define the burglary resistance classification RC as the combined result of profile, glass and locking elements.
The RC2 and RC3 ratings are the most suitable for private, public and commercial buildings. Ratings RC4 and over are dedicated to special buildings such as prisons and banks.
SKG certified components
Over 140 Nm certified cremones
The number of locking points
depends on the dimensions of the window.
Adjustable shims hinder the
insertion of burglary tools.
SKG is the only burglar-proof product-specific (HW) certification issued by SKG-IKOB (Netherlands), Europe’s most authoritative laboratory in the field.
SKG certified Giesse components can be used to achieve a RC2 or RC3 rating on a side-hung or tilt-and-turn window.
The SKG kits include all the components and mechanisms required to set up a window of any size. They can be paired with the Futura hinges or the C.H.I.C. concealed hinges, in addition to the Giesse cremones with three different designs: Prima, Asia and Kora.
