Bulletproof Laminated Polycarbonate Glass

Resilient, durable, and aesthetically pleasing security glazing solution.


Protect Your Facility With Bulletproof Polycarbonate Glazing

Polycarbonate security windows, while not made of actual glass, are optimal for interior use with a high resistance to forced entry; a sheet of polycarbonate security glazing can withstand repeated strikes from a sledgehammer. Its unique construction gives it the ability to “catch” a bullet without shattering. The laminated layers absorb the bullet’s momentum instead of forcing a bullet to dangerously ricochet off its surface.

Is Polycarbonate Glass Bulletproof?

Yes! Our polycarbonate bulletproof glass can stop a bullet. Our bullet-resistant polycarbonate is independently tested to UL protection Levels 1, 2, and 3. 

Ballistic polycarbonate that passes the Level 1 requirements will be able to withstand not only forced entry but an assault from a typical 9mm handgun used in an armed robbery. Windows that pass the Level 2 test will weather an attack from the more serious .357 Magnum. While Polycarbonate tested to Level 3 standards can withstand shots all the way up to a .44 Magnum.

How Do Polycarbonate Glazing Panels Compare to Other Options?

Many modern bulletproof systems are fabricated with laminated polycarbonate bulletproof glass. Polycarbonate glazing’s light transmission values are not as high as acrylic glazing; however, using the two products together results in a product that transmits light effectively and is resistant to both forced entry and ballistic attack. For facilities looking for more forced entry-resistant capabilities, our all-poly option offers it but at the expense of a lower light transmission value.

To increase durability, polycarbonate can also be coated with an abrasion-resistant coating. This gives it increased protection from solvents, weather, and UV light. 

Polycarbonate’s unique makeup results in a noticeable tint that results in roughly 80% light transmission. Most facilities managers find the safety benefits outweigh the difference in light transmission. However, if a high level of visual clarity is a priority, this factor should be taken into consideration.

Choosing the Right Polycarbonate Security Glazing

Both our all poly and polycarbonate and acrylic glazing options are independently tested to UL Levels 1, 2, and 3. These levels of protection offer resistance to shots from the most common types of handguns, including 9mm pistols, .357 Magnum pistols, and .44 Magnum pistols. Level 3 glazing is one of our most popular levels of protection; it’s strong, budget-friendly, and often the right choice for many types of companies.
