Does My Business Need Bullet-Resistant Glass? , Rochester, New York

As a business owner, you are always thinking of ways to make your facility more secure. If your business is open to the public, consider installing bullet-resistant glass. This addition to commercial doors and windows can protect employees and customers alike, particularly tellers or cashiers. Below is an introduction to bullet-resistant glass and how it can benefit your business.

What Is Bullet-Resistant Glass?

Commercial doors in Rochester, NYBe aware that no glass is truly bulletproof. Instead, the term "bullet-resistant glass" usually refers to a thick pane of some other material—often acrylic or polycarbonate. These panes are normally one or more inches in depth and weigh between five and eight pounds per square foot. On commercial doors and windows, this glass can resist ballistic penetration, damage from solvents, weather events, and forced entry. Some types are ideal for exterior use, while others work better indoors. Most offer protection against ultraviolet light as well, and you can have them tinted to your specifications.

What Are the Benefits of Commercial Bullet-Resistant Glass?

Along with protecting employees who handle money or deal with the public, bullet-resistant glass commercial doors and windows boost security even when you are closed for business. They are particularly helpful in areas with harsh winters, as they protect against high winds, hail, and heavy rain. An initial investment in quality protective materials could save you lots of money in repairs, court costs, and liability payments.
