Constructed from several sheets of glass and specialized interlayers, you can feel safe that Ballistic Guard will provide protection against armed attack. When fired at, Ballistic Guard is designed to slow the bullet down and trap it within the glass. Although composed of many layers, it maintains the normal appearance of glass and allows natural light to pass through. Some applications for Ballistic Guard may include embassy buildings, hospitals, banks, government buildings, schools, jewellery stores or in defence marine & land vehicles.
The glass is not elastic so all the energy from the moving bullet is taken by the glass which exceeds the fracture strength causing it to shatter. The first layer of the glass will shatter when the bullet hits, however the next layers are more elastic so it moves when the bullet hits it. This dissipates the energy of the bullet slowing it down. When enough energy is taken from the bullet it will eventually stop from passing through and become trapped within the layers protecting the opposing side.
The Ballistic Guard range comes in multiple different glass make-ups G1, G2, R1 & R2, including non polycarbonate options , ensuring that you are covered for whatever level of protection you require. Each glass makeup has undergone stringent testing against various degrees of ammunition and meets resistance to a defined attack under AS/NZS 2343 standards.
