Protects your windows and imediately alerts you of any breaking or flexing in your windows.

Ideal for conservatories, rooms with large windows and outhouses. 

With the reduced risk of false alarms, the break glass BG16DF filters any unwanted noise to focus soley on the frequencies of the shatter and the flex of the breaking glass.

8m detection coverage

8m detection range covering a 360 diameter.

Advanced digital noise background filter

Filters any unwanted noise in an environment.

2 stage detection process

The detector first picks up the high frequency ‘shatter’ of the glass and then the initial low frequency ‘flex’ of the glass.

Omni-directional sensor

The breakglass detector can be located in a convenient location, not necessarily positioned directly opposite the glass.

Installation test mode

By utilising this feature in conjunction with the Break Glass Tester, the sensitivity settings can be changed to suit the installation.

Option for latch mode

Enables the detector which has triggered the alarm to be identified in the case where there is more than one detector.
