DEFENDER Ballistic Insulated Glass
We now offer DEFENDER, ballistic insulated glass, an all-glass product that is an excellent choice for building exteriors, including upper floors, because it can be retrofitted into existing window frames. Unlike its acrylic and polycarbonate counterparts, insulated ballistic glass is not prone to crazing or de-lamination, and is therefore much easier to maintain. It has superior light transmission and can be customized with an additional thermochromic feature that darkens in response to sunlight for warmer climates. It carries a UL 752 Level 1 ballistic rating, as well as a UL 972 forced-entry rating.
UL-Rated Level 1 protection is able to withstand rounds from small caliber handguns, such as a 9mm full metal copper jacket with lead core. UL Level 1 is typically used in corporate headquarters, schools, hospitals, retail stores and small businesses. It comes in two thickness options: 1 1⁄4" and 1 1⁄8" (for existing frames or TSS thermally improved ballistic storefront frames) and can be customized with tinting and Low E enhancements.
