The phrase “bullet proof glass” is commonly used to describe a material that offers a certain level of resistance against ballistic threats. However, this is a misnomer, since no material can completely protect against all types of bullets. No matter how well-designed the material is, or how high its protection level, the glass will eventually give way to a persistent ballistic attack.
In reality, bulletproof glass does not exist, and it’s not always made of glass. Most bullet-resistant glass products are actually made of polycarbonate, acrylic, or glass-clad polycarbonate. The level of protection offered will depend on the material used, how it is manufactured, as well as its thickness. While no material can truly be “bulletproof” glass, Insulgard Security Products offers innovative bullet resistant glass and glazing technologies to offer physical protection against ballistic assault. Not only can our bullet resistant materials safeguard your staff and assets, they also serve as an effective theft deterrent.
