Understanding Bullet-Resistant Glass

It is difficult, almost impossible, to find substances that are 100% bullet-proof. Most substances, like glass windows or doors, are bullet-resistant. There is a thin line between bullet-proof and bullet-resistant, but in general, it can be said that lead sheathing or solid concrete can be "bullet-proof" while the rest would be categorized as "bullet-resistant."

 

Applications of Bullet-Resistant Glass

Bullet-resistant glass, owing to its strength and durability, find applications in many domains, industries and venues such as:

  • Stadiums and arenas
  • Lodging facilities
  • Financial institutions
  • Convenience stores
  • Schools
  • Police stations

Bullet-resistant glass can be used to protect people from bullets and hard objects.

How Does Bullet-Resistant Glass Get Its Strength

Bullet-resistant glass makes up many layers of plastic and glass. When a bullet reaches the surface of the glass, these layers help reduce its momentum and protects you from a potentially significant injury.

Rating Levels of Bullet-Resistant Glass

Bullet-resistant glass is categorized into many levels, based on the kind of safety and security. These levels are:

  • UL 752 Level 1
    Protects from small-calibre handguns and is often chosen by small businesses looking for a crime deterrent. It resists at least three shots from a 9mm travelling at a velocity of 1,175 feet per second.

  • UL 752 Level 2
    Protects from larger calibre handguns and is popular in settings with slightly elevated security needs, like banks, jewellery stores, etc. It resists at least three shots of .357 magnum soft points travelling at a velocity of 1,250 feet per second.

  • UL 752 Level 3
    Provides an even higher level of protection and is common in government buildings and police stations. It resists at least three shots of .44 magnum rounds at a velocity of 1350 feet per second.
