UL-Level 1-3 bulletproof glass is recommended for most hospital and healthcare facilities. Read on to find out more about the levels of bulletproof glass.
What is Level 1-3 protection?
Security levels for bullet-resistant systems are established by UL (Underwriters Laboratory), the primary testing organization for materials used in these systems.
