When businesses need to protect employees against ballistic threats, they turn to bullet-resistant fiberglass panels. Also referred to as opaque armor, these panels are made of reinforced structural polyester laminate and designed to withstand extreme impact. These rigid, lightweight woven panels delaminate or separate when a bullet strikes. The flattened, distorted projectile remains caught between the woven layers. Businesses and facilities like financial institutions, courtrooms, police stations, prisons, convenience stores, check-cashing businesses, and more use bullet-resistant panels to safeguard against intrusion or ballistic attacks.

Bullet Guard Fiberglass Panels

We manufacture a wide range of wall and cabinet armor that are designed to defeat bullet, blast, or 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. By mixing the correct ratio of fiberglass to resin, and maintaining the right amount of heat plus pressure during the curing process, we ensure that each layer of woven roving fiberglass will delaminate from one another and allow for a controlled, non-spalling encapsulation of the bullet within the panel. The kinetic energy of the bullet is released or dissipated through this ply-release or de-lamination process.

 

Our bullet-resistant wall and cabinet armor is installed as protective barriers in government buildings, police stations, guard houses, and convenience stores. The architectural armor panels are flexible and can be used anywhere if there is a perceived or real threat of ballistic assault. Bullet-resistant fiberglass panels in standard sizes of 4’ by 8’ are available in stock for ready shipping.

Compared to traditional bullet-resistant building materials such as plate steel, concrete, or cinder blocks with sand, our architectural armor panels offer a lot more utility and ease. The panels are lightweight and can be easily cut, drilled, sanded, painted, as well as textured. They are also more compatible with other wood or gypsum materials. Our architectural armor panels can be primed and painted with oil or water-based paints. They can also be glued to other surfaces with adhesives as well as covered with drywall, wood panels, or any other type of wall covering. Instructions for installation are included with every order to assist skilled or novice installers.

  • Commercial: These ballistic fiberglass panels protect against robbery and forced entry, as well as provide storm and blast resistance. Riot-proof panels safeguard retail businesses during protests.
  • Financial: Intrusion-resistant panels can deter thieves looking for large amounts of cash when other means fail. They also protect employees from the risk of injury.
  • Government: Impact-resistant fiberglass panels protect dignitaries, employees, and visitors to high-security areas like government offices, embassies, Federal Reserve buildings, and more from bullets, blasts, and projectiles.
  • Grid Security: Our panels protect contractors and consultants in the utility transmission and distribution industry from attacks that seek to interrupt critical utilities and infrastructure.
  • Healthcare: The presence of drugs can prompt armed attacks on doctors or staff that can be deterred with impact-resistant fiberglass panels.
  • Law enforcement: Bulletproof protection can safeguard law enforcement from ballistic or intrusion attacks.
  • Military: Protection for our military personnel from bullets and blast fragments is vital to domestic or overseas operations.
  • Residential: Impact-resistant panels can protect residences against intruders or damage from storms or tornadoes.
  • Safe rooms: Panic and safe rooms are made secure against bullets, blasts, cutting tools, and blunt force entry with bulletproof fiberglass panels.
  • Schools: Children, teachers, and administrators are made safer against forced entry and ballistic attackers with intrusion delay and bullet-resistant panels.

These customizable ballistic fiberglass panels fit into walls, furniture, counters, and doors. Our consultants can work with you to determine the appropriate level of protection and location for your panels based on your industry, application, and whether you need temporary, removable panels or permanent security.
