GlasArmor is a pultruded fiberglass panel that has remarkable ballistic resistance. Originally developed for military applications, GlasArmor is now available to provide your business or residence with military grade protection from armed attack.
GlasArmor panels are constructed from multiple layers of fiberglass reinforcements in a resin matrix that is designed to absorb ballistic impact by internal delamination. This controlled delamination captures and retains the projectile preventing dangerous ricochet.
GlasArmor panels are available in three performance levels that correspond to the UL 752 Ballistic Resistance Standards. GlasArmor is a UL Listed security product.
Level 1 rated for 9mm / 124 grain / 1,175 fps projectiles
Level 2 rated for.357 Mag / 158 grain / 1,250 fps projectiles
Level 3 rated for.44 Magnum / 240 grain / 1,350 fps projectiles
Additional protection from higher powered armaments can be achieved by layering of panels to achieve the required thickness.
