Bullet Resistant Glass

Bullet Resistant Glass

Bullet resistant glass is designed to withstand one or several rounds of bullets depending on the thickness of the glass and the weapon being fired at it. While often referred to as bullet-proof glass, that is a misnomer. So what gives bullet-resistant glass the ability to stop bullets?

Through a process of lamination, a polycarbonate material is layered between sheets of glass which are then bonded together. A bullet fired at a sheet of bullet-resistant glass will pierce the outer layer of glass but the layered polycarbonate material will absorb the bullets energy and stop it before it exits the final layer. The ability of bullet-resistant glass to stop a bullet is determined by the thickness of the glass. Since the bullets from handguns and rifles vary greatly in their force and penetrating power, each application needs to be designed to meet those specific requirements.

What Our Customers Say

Last week we had to have our windshield replaced on our Honda CRV. Our insurance company recommended Best Glass. A few days after you completed the job I noticed a little plastic cover missing that covers the bolt holding the molding on. I called your office and Mary was very friendly and professional. She said she would have Mike call me ASAP. He called within a few minutes and was at my house within an hour. He didn't point fingers in any way, just guaranteed that he would take care of it. He thought he might have to replace the whole molding. He said he would check it out and get back to me. Within half an hour he was back at my door with the brand new part, snapped it on the molding and was off again. What a nice guy!! I couldn't ask for better service. Thanks to all at Best Glass. Will definitely recommend you to all I know.
