GlasArmor™ Ballistic Resistant Panels
GlasArmor™ Ballistic Resistant Panels are constructed to provide any facility with military grade protection. Originally developed for use by the Department of Defense for protection from mortar fire, our fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite panels offer superior ballistic resistance at less than 25 percent the weight of a comparable steel panel.
Constructed from multiple layers of woven fiberglass and encapsulated with a proprietary resin system, these rigid panels feature exceptional ballistic resistance. The unique composite matrix of the panels allow for retention of the projectile to avoid potentially hazardous ricochet. Panels can be field-fabricated utilizing simple installation methods and common carpentry tools. Surface finish is smooth in a white color with custom colors available in production quantities. Panels can be primed and painted or covered by gypsum board or other materials to match specific requirements.
