Bullet Proof Glass
Bulletproof glass (also known as ballistic glass, transparent armor or bullet-resistant glass) is a type of strong but optically transparent material that is particularly resistant to being penetrated when struck. Like any material, however, they are not completely impenetrable.
Bullet proof glass is usually constructed using a strong but transparent material such as polycarbonate thermoplastic or Laminated Glass. when bonded with the application of a pressure sensitive adhesive and cured fully, Laminated Glass provides a protection similar to the multi-layered bullet-resistant glass. It also provides much better tint-free optical clarity.
To accommodate the different needs of our clients, we offer a wide variety of the highest quality bullet resistant products. You don't have to sacrifice style for security. At Bear Glass we offer custom design as you prefer.
Testing The Resistance capacity:
Bullet-resistant materials are usually tested by using a gun to fire a projectile from a set distance into the material in a set pattern. Levels of protection are based on the ability of the target to stop a specific type of projectile traveling at a specific speed.
Experiments suggest that polycarbonate fails at lower velocities with regular shaped projectiles compared to irregular ones (like fragments), so that testing with regular shaped projectiles probably gives a conservative estimate of its resistance. When projectiles do not penetrate, the depth of the dent left by the impact can be measured and related to the projectile’s velocity and thickness of the material. Some researchers have developed mathematical models based on results of this kind of testing to help them design bulletproof glass to resist specific anticipated threats.
Our goal at Bear Glass is to provide the most comprehensive security solutions for your business, which will create and promote a safe environment for employees and customers alike.
