Ballistic Glass Product Description

Ballistic Glass After Being Hit with Bullets

Ballistic glass provides a reassuring level of bullet resistance due to being manufactured with several alternating, laminated layers of both glass and poly. The several layers that the Ballistic Glass consists of combines both the toughness of tempered glass with the strength and shatterproof abilities that plastic offers. Typically, Ballistic Glass is only used in places where bullets are a huge problem, but it is also great for extra added protection in any setting. 

Our Ballistic Glass comes in Clear, or with a Two Way Mirror coating. In our price calculator we offer the 1 3/16″ thick Ballistic Glass since that is the industry standard however, thickness can vary depending on what level of security that needs to be met. 

Thickness plays a huge part in a product’s ability to resist bullets. Ballistic glass is designed to remain intact for one bullet, or one round of bullets. Depending on the force of the bullet being fired and what type of weapon is used, a thicker piece of bullet proof glass is needed to stop a bullet with more force. For instance, a shot fired from a 9 mm pistol is less powerful than one fired from a rifle. Therefore, the required thickness of bullet-resistant glass for a 9 mm pistol is less than is needed for a rifle. The final thickness of bullet-resistant glass usually ranges from about .25 inches to 3 inches.

The multitude of layers possessed within Ballistic Glass provide the toughness of tempered glass, along with the strength, and shatterproof abilities that plastic offers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Use Ballistic Glass?

Ballistic Glass is tested to ensure it is able to resist bullets when placed in vehicles and buildings. We would love to help you order the perfect composition for maximum safety. 

Do We Ship Worldwide?

Yes, we ship worldwide.

Are Our Shipments Insured?

Yes, we carefully package each order and fully ensure every order. 

What is the Difference Between Tempered Glass and Ballistic Glass?

Tempered glass is processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments in order to increase its strength, while Ballistic Glass is a strong and optically transparent material that is particularly resistant to penetration by projectiles and made of alternating layers of poly and glass.

What is the Difference Between Ballistic and Laminated Glass?

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds the glass shards together and in place in the event of being shattered. Laminated Glass is typically made of an interlayer that is placed between two or more layers of glass. 

Ballistic Glass is a much stronger piece of glass when compared to Laminated Glass and is manufactured to be particularly resistant to penetration. Ballistic Glass consists of multiple alternating layers of poly and glass and is typically much thicker than Laminated Glass.

How Do I Install Ballistic Glass?

Installing Ballistic Glass is relatively easy, when ordering your Ballistic Glass be sure to measure the dimensions of the area you plan to place the Glass in. Once the Glass arrives, simply place the Ballistic Glass directly into the opening you desire.
