Ballistic Glass Windows
U.S. Bullet Proofing understands the importance of protecting people and property, which is why we’re committed to engineering, manufacturing and installing the best ballistic glass windows in the industry. These feature multiple layers of glass in varying thicknesses. The higher the number of layers and the thicker the glass, the better they are at stopping bullets and other ballistic threats. Ballistic glass windows that incorporate laminated glass sometimes use special polycarbonates, which are the most protective glazing available.
Contrary to popular belief, bullets don’t bounce off ballistic glass windows. The multiple layers of reinforced glass gradually erode the penetration speed of the bullet, absorbing its kinetic energy and slowing it down enough that it doesn’t fully penetrate the window.
For maximum safety, the designer and end user of these solutions must understand how suitable the product is for the specific application. When it comes to protective design and security, architects and engineers are responsible for equipping the facilities they create with the most appropriate level of protection based on the threats they are most likely to face.
It should come as no surprise, then, that these ballistic glass windows are intended for use in high-value targets. These include:
- Banks and financial institutions
- Government buildings
- Police stations
- Military bases
- Commercial and retail properties
Windows of this type typically are rated for ballistic resistance, blast resistance and resistance to forced entry. These are tested by several different agencies, including the U.S. General Services Administration and the U.S. Department of State.
