Bulletproof Fiberglass Counters

Bulletproof countertops are reinforced with ballistic fiberglass and help protect areas not covered by ballistic windows.

Protect Frontline Workers With Bulletproof Countertops

Bulletproof fiberglass is the most practical way to protect the "in-between" spaces of a ballistic barrier like countertops and walls. Bullet-resistant countertops are typically made with wood laminate, plastic laminate, or stainless steel and reinforced with ballistic fiberglass. The fiberglass is designed to delaminate when a bullet hits it, distorting and flattening the projectile and dissipating the energy.  

Bulletproof fiberglass countertops are available in UL Levels 1 through 8. They are compatible with all TSS deal trays and package passers and can match existing interiors with custom finishes.

How Much Does A Bulletproof Countertop Cost?

The cost of most ballistic products increases as the level of protection increases. Bulletproof countertops are no different. The most reliable way to get an accurate estimate is to contact TSS for a free quote. Our experts can help you determine how much ballistic fiberglass your space may need and the appropriate level of protection.

In general, you can expect 100 square feet of fiberglass to cost approximately*:

  • Level 1 fiberglass: $1,200
  • Level 3 fiberglass: $1,600
  • Level 5 fiberglass: $5,000

* Fabrication into a countertop is not included in these pricing examples.

How Do Bulletproof Counters Compare to Other Building Materials?

Most standard building materials are not bulletproof. If you're creating a physical security barrier, plasterboard, drywall, and wood framing will not stop a bullet. Cinderblocks do resist bullets, but they aren't a practical solution for countertops or reception areas.

The solution is bulletproof countertops. Stainless steel, wood, or plastic laminate counters are reinforced with a "hidden" layer of bulletproof fiberglass under the surface. If an attack occurs, frontline workers can duck under the counter and still be protected by bulletproof counters and walls. And because TSS can match the counter with your existing interior, this extra layer of protection is unobtrusive and blends right into the environment.

Choosing the Right Level of Protection for Bulletproof Counters

Our ballistic fiberglass falls into two main categories.

  • Levels 1-3 are rated to stop a specified number of shots from common handguns
  • Levels 4-8 are rated to stop a specified number of shots from semi-automatic rifles and hunting rifles

The right level of protection depends on your environment and threat level. Since the majority of retail, financial, and healthcare gun violence happens with a handgun, Level 3 provides comprehensive protection at an accessible price point. But if you have specific concerns about rifle fire, a higher protection level might be a better choice. When in doubt, it's always better to consult a safety expert. Our team is ready to discuss your concerns and help you decide how to best protect your staff.
