Breakout Resistance

Breakout resistance encompasses classic protection against breakouts, suicide attempts and vandalism.

Breakout-resistant units such as windows, doors and facades are security systems that are used in the following building types:

  • Penal institutions
  • Police, court or customs buildings
  • High-security and psychiatric hospitals

The main aim is to guarantee protection for everyone inside the building. This does not just mean preventing breakouts, but also protecting patients and inmates who are at risk of committing suicide or injuring themselves. The windows and doors must be easy for the staff to operate, in order to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the building. There are no current standards for breakout-resistant windows and doors, so they can only undergo appropriate testing. Schuco has used its expertise and experience from the field of burglar resistance to offere planners and users a secure foundation.
