Bullet Resistant Polycarbonate

Bullet resistant polycarbonate is available in a variety of grades and strengths. While no material is truly “bulletproof”, it is a great option for added safety and protection. Bullet resistant polycarbonate meets all security requirements with regard to protection against forced entry and ballistic impact. The CG (containment glazing) grades are particularly suitable for protection against forced entry with heavy tools such as sledgehammers and axes. The BR (bullet-resistant) and the MS (multiple shots) grades were specially developed for ballistic protection and withstand even sustained fire from heavy automatic firearms. 

There are 8 different levels of protection when it comes to bullet-resistant polycarbonate.

Level 1

Level 2

Level 3

Level 4-8

Able to withstand shots from small caliber handguns, most commonly used in armed robberies. Most small businesses use Level 1 bullet resistant glass as a crime deterrent.

Withstands assaults from larger caliber handguns, and is made for buildings with increased security concerns.

Recommend for larger buildings that have a higher threat level and a greater number of employees or occupants. This level is suitable for environments where threats are potentially more severe and there is a greater level of occupant endangerment.

Designed to withstand assault rifles and automatic weapons. Materials rated for Levels 4-8 are cost-prohibitive for many types of jobs and are custom-manufactured on a case by case basis
