Bulletproof fiberglass panels offer employees ballistic protection in government buildings, police stations, guard houses, convenience stores, and many more scenarios. Also known as opaque armor, these rigid, woven panels delaminate (or separate) when a bullet strikes them, flattening the projectile as it is caught between the woven layers and dissipating the kinetic energy of the bullet. Made of reinforced structural polyester laminate and designed to withstand extreme impact, these panels play an important role in any physical security barrier system.
Bullet Guard’s fiberglass panels are designed to defeat bullet, blast, and forced entry impacts. Our high-strength, non-ricochet architectural armor is composed of multi-ply bullet and blast-resistant fiberglass laminates that are tested according to UL-752 and ASTM E 119 standards. As protective barriers, our bullet-resistant wall and cabinet armor provides security against perceived and real threats of ballistic assault, offering peace of mind to workers and employers alike, even in the most stressful of working environments.
Offering a more versatile solution than traditional bullet-resistant building materials such as plate steel, concrete, or cinder blocks, our architectural armor is compatible with a wide range of materials, including wood and gypsum. The flexible fiberglass panels are lightweight and are easily cut, drilled, sanded, painted, and textured, customizing them to the intended location, with the ability to be glued with adhesives to any type of wall covering.
With their universal appeal, our bulletproof fiberglass panels are suited to the varying needs of a myriad of industries, easily adapting them to fit into walls, furniture, counters, and doors. Because each situation has its own unique security requirements, we offer multiple panel types capable of withstanding a variety of impact velocities and ammunition. Industry applications include:
- Grid Security
Renovation or New Construction
Fiberglass panels can be used to renovate and upgrade an existing space or incorporated into a brand new construction project.
Facility owners have a few options when renovating. One is to remove the existing drywall and mount the new bulletproof fiberglass panels to the studs, and layer new drywall on top. It is difficult to nail or drill into bulletproof fiberglass, so having an outer layer of drywall will make it easier to attach trim, molding, etc. You may also mount bulletproof fiberglass over the existing drywall and either add another layer of drywall or paint the fiberglass itself.
When upgrading an existing counter or security desk, you can mount pre-cut panels to the interior of the desk. Panels can also be secured to the outside and painted over or veneered to match the rest of the building.
New construction is fairly straightforward. Simply mount the panels directly to the studs and cover them with a layer of drywall.
