First SKG-IKOB KOMO class 5 approval for burglar resistance 

On 12 December 2017, Remko Mathijssen, Commercial Director at MHB in Herveld, received the first KOMO approval for class 5 burglar-resistant doors from Olaf van Panhuys, Director at SKG-IKOB Certificatie.
MHB had tests carried out for projects in which the requirements for burglar resistance were extremely high. For doors with burglar resistance class 5, the resistance to a manual attack in terms of time is five times as long as for class 2 and three times as long as for class 3. The company can now supply both single doors and double doors fitted with a panel and an anti-panic lock with KOMO class 5 approval for burglar resistance.

SKG-IKOB has a special test rig in which burglar resistance tests are performed. This is suitable for test elements measuring up to 6000 mm (w) x 4000 mm (h) and was developed for tests under NEN 5096 and EN 1627 - 1630. During testing, SKG-IKOB works from the perspective of the burglar and uses tools, varying from screwdrivers and hammers to heavy grinders, to test whether it is possible to create a penetrable opening in a product.

Testing products for burglar resistance enables manufacturers to demonstrate to their customers that products such as windows, doors and speed gates satisfy the requirements specified within the Dutch Buildings Decree (NEN 5096) and by the customer. The results of the test can also be the basis for issuing an SKG-IKOB KOMO approval.
