Bulletproof Doors: Where to Begin

Bulletproof doors are essential for maintaining physical and building safety. You’ll find them in government buildings, banks, and police stations—anywhere that security is a priority—serving as a physical barrier as well as a visual deterrent to would-be attackers. Used in conjunction with bulletproof windows, bulletproof doors provide both effective ballistic protection and complete peace of mind for building workers and visitors.

Applicable Industries

You can’t have a building without doors of some kind, and with those access points comes the potential of vulnerability and opportunity for those with ill intent. Because of their practicality and universal applications, bulletproof doors are a common inclusion of any security project, with implementations such as:

Banks and Financial Buildings: Bulletproof doors and windows are paramount for financial institutions such as banks. They secure the buildings and provide an extra line of defense against activities like thefts and attacks on the employees.

Government Buildings: Bullet-resistant doors protect government buildings against threats of invasion. Moreover, these buildings often house sensitive documents and information that cannot be leaked publicly. Having ballistic protection provides an excellent measure of security to these places.

Schools, Colleges, and Universities: Schools can often become vulnerable to rogue attackers. Bulletproof doors ensure the safety of students as well as the teachers and staff members of the schools.

Convenience Stores and Gas Stations: Most convenience stores and gas stations are fitted with bulletproof or bullet-resistant doors to offer protection to customers while they are shopping. In addition, the doors also protect businesses from possible theft and looting, especially when they are located in remote areas.

Religious and Spiritual Centers: Security is essential for religious centers, where people gather together in large groups. Bullet-resistant doors are an ideal way to provide security to these buildings.
