Classes of Door/Window

What classes do you use for doors, windows, etc? What do they describe?
I.e. a class II metal door would be what for you? Reinforced, solid, hollow, skinned metal? Number of locking mechanisms?

Over here we have SKG *, ** and *** star ratings. These ratings describe the time it would take to force open a door fitted with all fittings. (cylinders, hinges, add-on security locks, face plates etc.)

Aluminium doors and frames are hardest to bypass when installed correctly with the right fittings. single pane glass would be SKG -1*, developed for flies and mosquito's
