Glazing Options

Bullet Resistant Acrylic is one of the most commonly used bullet resistant plastics. This product is most easily recognized by its clarity and is used in the majority of check cashing and convenience store locations.

Bullet Resistant Polycarbonate is the highest quality bullet resistant polycarbonate in the industry, is manufactured to high tolerances without ripples or waves, and is a non-ricochet material. 

Bullet Resistant Laminated Glass is used when scratch resistance is a major concern or where the bullet resistant transparency will be facing the exterior of the building. 

Bullet Resistant Glass-Clad Polycarbonate is lighter than laminated glass and offers higher degree of protection with less weight.
