Bulletproof Glass for Police Stations
Due to the nature of police stations, threats are always a risk. People in high-stress situations can panic and respond in a way that puts officers, visitors, and other staff in danger. Because of this possibility, it’s crucial to secure police station lobbies with custom bulletproof barriers to boost safety and security.
Bulletproof glass is composed of three main designs: glass-clad polycarbonate, solid acrylic, and polycarbonate laminate. Glass-clad polycarbonate is made up of a polycarbonate sheet sandwiched between two sheets of glass. The polycarbonate provides additional support for the glass while offering a stronger barrier than the glass alone.
Polycarbonate and acrylic are available in various blends and formulas, and they are manufactured in a wide range of thicknesses to suit different impact resistance requirements. Two of our most popular polycarbonate plastics include Hygard™ and Lexgard™.
When developing a bulletproof system for police stations, it’s important to do the following:
- Use Level 3 bulletproof polycarbonate for interior applications and glass-clad polycarbonate for exterior applications
- Secure the front entrance and vestibule area with automatic locking mechanisms and bullet-resistant doors
- Rather than securing every window, focus on securing potential weak spots within heavy traffic areas of the police station
- Incorporate a barrier system around the dispatch areas and front lobby to protect on-duty officers
Bullet-Resistant Doors for Police Stations
Police stations are exposed to potentially violent individuals on a day-to-day basis. To keep police officers and other staff safe, it’s important for these facilities to incorporate bulletproof barrier systems. At Bullet Guard, we offer custom and ready-to-ship bulletproof and bullet-resistant doors that offer additional safety for police stations. These doors are available in a range of sizes and protection levels, enabling you to choose the type of door that works best for your facility.
Levels of Ballistic Protection for Police Stations
The various levels are meant to protect against numerous types of firearms, ranging from smaller handguns to larger, high-powered rifles. The levels of ballistic protection for our bulletproof and bullet-resistant doors include:
- Level 1. Provides protection against up to 3 shots from a 9mm (124g) FMJ caliber gun.
- Level 2. Provides protection against up to 3 shots from a .357 Magnum (158g) SP caliber gun.
