It’s unfortunate, but bullet and shatterproof glass is becoming more and more common for public buildings. While it has traditionally been installed in banks, jewelers and similar environments, more people are considering it for safety in schools, churches, government buildings and more. When it comes to determining whether or not to use shatter resistant or bullet proof glass, consider where protection may be needed:
Windows: Bullet-roof and shatter resistant glass for windows should be considered for commercial buildings in which someone may attempt to break through and gain access to something valuable inside. Often windows can be the fastest access point for thief looking to enter a building after business hours, and can be the most stressful when trying to make repairs and protect your business.
Doors: Similar to windows, the glass or glass panels on doors can be a quick access point for anyone trying to enter a building. Doors may also be a concern when outfitting schools or government buildings, especially front and side entrance doors, or interior doors with glass panels.
Partitions: Glass partitions are one of the easiest ways to create a safety barrier between employees and visitors, while maintaining an open and inviting feel. Partitions have been used in banks and police stations for many years, and can be the perfect solution for any office with a front reception area and security concerns.
