Bullet proof glass is a glass that is particularly resistant to being penetrated when struck by bullets. LG Glass & Glazing can supply glass of usable thicknesses capable of stopping different bullet forces depending on architects specification. It is constructed by using a strong but transparent material such as polycarbonate thermoplastic or by using layers of laminated glass.
Our bullet proof glass is available from 26mm to 57mm in thickness depending on the level of force that is required. It is ideal for protection against personal injury in high risk areas such as banks, post offices, building societies, cash offices, military establishments, and VIP residences.
