Teller windows in banks are not the only applications for bullet resistant glass. There are instances where glass laminates designed for bullet resistance are installed in cars and boats. This concept of “up armoring” gives drivers and passengers greater peace of mind and safety.
There are different levels of ballistics performance, which are described in two standards, Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) 752 and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standard 0108.01. The requirements in these standards have guided the development of a range of laminated glass products that provide penetration and spall resistance.
The downside of bullet resistant glass can be its weight and framing requirements. Typical bullet resistant constructions are constructed with multiple pieces of glass and bonding interlayers. The overall thickness of the laminate is close to an inch or more. Besides its security benefits, bullet resistant glass offers transparency, enhanced by low iron glass and ultra-clear interlayers.
