BULLET RESISTANT GLASS
What is bullet-resistant glass? Bullet-resistant glass is not “bullet-proof.” Bullet resistant glass has been tested in the lab and can stop ballistic rounds, but no lab test can guarantee real-world outcomes or test for all real-world possibilities.
Bullet-resistant glass has been tested and is resistant to threats. Testing results are available to buyers to assess the level of protection they require for their perceived threat level.

It is easy to get lost in the technical aspects of bullet-resistant glass, but the most important aspects to consider are relatively simple. Bullet-resistant glass refers to a range of security glass products that are resistant to projectile attacks so the most important aspect for a buyer to consider is how much protection they require and choose the corresponding products.

WHAT DOES BULLET RESISTANT MEAN?
While bullet resistant glass will withstand impacts from different calibers of rounds, that does not mean that rounds will simply bounce off and fall away to the ground harmlessly. This type of glass consists of multiple laminated glass layers that combine to protect against projectiles, forced entry, active shooters and rioters. Protection levels, cost, weight and durability requirements are factors in determining the best materials for your home or business.
IMPORTANT FACTS TO CONSIDER ABOUT BULLET-RESISTANT GLASS

HOW IS NON-BULLET-RESITANT GLASS DIFFERENT?
There are many types of non-bullet-resistant glass from standard annealed or plate glass you might find in a home or business to tempered or laminated safety glass used when additional strength is needed. Non-bullet-resistant glass can offer additional protection but does not offer protection against ballistic threats like firearm projectiles.
If a non-bullet-resistant window gets hit by a single bullet, it will shatter and may collapse completely from its frame. Some safety and security glasses are stronger than regular window glass. They are designed to be less dangerous when they break, but are not specifically designed to resist ballistic threats.
CHARACTERISTICS OF NON-BULLET-RESISTANT GLASS
- Do not provide protection against ballistic threats
- Allow bullets to pass through and shatter glass
- Some can protect against non-ballistic impacts
- Are not rated for ballistic impacts

THE BENEFITS OF BULLET RESISTANT GLASS
Bullet-resistant glass offers top-of-the-line protection for businesses and commercial properties. Businesses looking to upgrade their security and windows against ballistic threats, riots, and looting can look to bullet-resistant glass for protection. Standard tempered, non-bullet-resistant glass that most businesses use is easy to shatter and not rated to defend against ballistic threats. Installing ballistic grade windows is a great choice for businesses seeking to protect merchandise, equipment, and employees.
Retrofitting a retail storefront with bullet-resistant glass means windows will be virtually unbreakable using traditional burglary methods. Bullet-resistant glass can withstand repeated impacts by threats like hammers, crowbars, bricks, rocks, and other break-and-enter tools.
