Forced entry is the attempted penetration of a door, window and walls using a wide variety of tools. These tools may include, but are not limited to sledge hammers, pry bars, wood splitting mauls, fire axes, battering rams, gasoline, acetone, propane torches and CO2 fire extinguishers. The number of people, the tools used, and the duration of the attack vary among the standards used to measure forced entry resistance. One of the most stringent standards is used by the Department of State for overseas embassies and diplomatic facilities. United States Bullet Proofing is proud to be one of only a few companies in the world certified by the Department of State to build forced entry products to this standard. Other standards include ASTM F1233 for glazing material, ASTM F588 for windows, and ASTM F476 for doors. These standards have multiple levels of ratings based on the severity of the threat.
