GlasArmorTM Ballistic Resistant Panels manufactured by Glasforms, Inc. are
constructed to provide any facility with the latest in military grade protection from
armed attackers. Originally developed for use by the Department of Defense for
protection from mortar fire, our FRP Composite panels offer superior ballistic
resistance at a weight less than 25% that of a comparable steel panel. These same
panels are now available for commercial security applications for your business,
home, or governmental facility.
Utilized for both indoor and outdoor applications, panels can be easily incorporated into standard building design to provide undetectable ballistic protection. Panels can be field fabricated utilizing simple installation methods and common carpentry tools. Surface finish is smooth in a white color with custom colors available in production quantities. Panels can be primed and painted or covered by gypsum board or other materials to match specific requirements.
Panels are available with a nominal thickness of 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2” for protection to UL752 levels 1, 2 & 3 and NIJ Levels I, II & IIIA test standards for ballistic resistance. Additional protection against higher power ammunition’s to UL 752 Level 4 for .30 caliber rifles and Level 8 for 7.62mm rifles are achieved by layering multiple
GlasArmor panels. This also permits offsetting of panel joints and easier handling for installation over the use of thicker, heavier panels where greater protection is required.
