“Bulletproof glass” and “bullet resistant glass” are the most common combinations of words used when someone is searching for a bulletproof window. The fact is that there are many types of materials used to make bulletproof windows. Which one is right for you? The material you choose depends on whether or not you are looking for interior or exterior applications.
Bulletproof or bullet resistant windows for interior application are normally made up of different materials then that of exterior bulletproof glass windows. Pacific Bulletproof has been providing bullet resistant protection to banks, police departments, check cashing stores, gas stations, and many other structures/industries for over twenty years. We are experts in physical security of all types.
Standard Bulletproof Glass is the least expensive form of bulletproof glass for exterior use. Pacific Bulletproof Co. carriers a full line of bullet resistant glass shown below and also has each glass design available in a special type of glass for those who want to eliminate the green tilt that comes with regular thick glass. Pacific Bulletproof Co also carriers all the framing options needed for your windows whether it’s storefront framing or a transaction window or just a fixed window frame
Bullet resistant acrylic is mostly used for banks, check cashing stores, payment centers, utility companies and medical buildings. It is available in U.L. 752 level 1 and level 2 and can be cut to any size and have very nice, clean polished edges. This is a very clear and attractive choice for bullet resistant counter systems as you see at banks.
Bullet resistant polycarbonate and / or polycarbonate/ acrylic blends are the most common choices for U.L. 752 Level three interior windows. This is a very common choice for police departments, gas stations and government projects including court houses. Bullet resistant polycarbonate laminations are a great choice for interior windows because besides being bullet resistant they are also very forced entry and blast resistant and depending on the frames used. Pacific Bulletproof provides two choices of this level of protection. The first is a layup of straight polycarbonate and has by far the best level 3 rating in it’s class, and the second is a polycarbonate acrylic blend. This product is more cost effective, but when shot at multiple times it loses its bullet resistance do to the breaking up of the acrylic interlayer. These are very strong choices for interior bullet resistant windows
Bullet resistant glass clad polycarbonate is a very popular choice for exterior bullet resistant glazing applications. The reason is that bullet resistant glass clad polycarbonate is a combination of glass and polycarbonate combined in layers to make a thinner / lighter bullet resistant glass with added forced entry and blast protection based on the strength of the polycarbonate / glass combination. You can see below the differences in weight and thickness of bullet resistant glass clad polycarbonate. This is why people tend to favor this product in higher levels of bullet resistant glass protection. It is lighter and thinner and easier to install than standard bulletresistant glass. It also provides the option of no spall protection, meaning that if shot glass fragments will not become projected on the safe side.
