ESG welcomes bullet resistant glass to range

14 Jul

ESG Ballistic bullet resistant glass has been developed for the security market by the team at ESG. Through extensive research and stringent testing, we have added ESG Ballistic bullet resistant glass to our innovative high security product range.

Bullet resistant glass provides high level security glazing with a defined resistance against the firing of specified weapons and ammunition. Created from layers of laminated glass and specialist interlayers, ESG Ballistic is manufactured under our exacting quality controlled methods.

This bullet resistant glazing is specially designed to absorb both the impact and the enormous energy of a projectile, and to contain it within the glass panel. This affords protection to those on the other side of the glass, preventing life threatening injuries. Our combined expertise and experience has enabled us to reduce construction thicknesses, making ESG Ballistic thinner and lighter than standard products on offer in the marketplace, with superior light transmission as an added bonus.

ESG Ballistic bullet resistant glass is available in both No Spall and Spall Allowed options. No Spall is where all fragments, both from the projectile and glazing construction are fully contained and is denoted by way of a polycarbonate layer to the non-attack face of the construction. Spall Allowed is where all the projectile fragments are fully contained within the construction but which permits glass fragments from the non-attack face which is glass.

Whereas No Spall has the added safety measure of containing all fragments, Spall Allowed traps the bullet fully and can also be cleaned and treated like a normal glass window.

ESG Ballistic bullet resistant glass can also be combined with any of our security or fire resistant glazing solutions.
