Bullet Resistant Polycarbonate Security Glass

Polycarbonate Security Glass

Polycarbonate is great for exterior windows because of its resistance to forced entry: a sheet of polycarbonate will take an hour of beating with a sledgehammer, where a comparable piece of acrylic might succumb in just minutes. While hard acrylic fractures, sending the bullet ricocheting, Jim points out that “polycarb looks beautiful when it stops a bullet: since it’s soft, it sucks the bullet in like a catcher’s mitt.”
