Backglazing Offers Significant Benefits

Stops Bullets - TSS

Backglazing Can Stop a Bullet

If windows simply can’t be replaced with a bulletproof option, a common suggestion is to use security window film instead. While film is a great product in the right application, it’s not suitable for protecting human lives as it does not stop a bullet. Because backglazing is made from bulletproof glass that undergoes rigorous testing to ensure its performance under fire, you can trust that if the unthinkable happens, your people will have bulletproof protection.

Plenty of buildings simply can’t replace their existing windows with ballistic alternatives. Whether the construction is too delicate, the windows have historical significance, or the aesthetics make replacing with bulletproof material impractical, backglazing lets you preserve what matters most while adding a layer of protection.
