SRX have recently established a relationship with a UAE based supplier of bespoke armoured glass for use in residential buildings. The glass comes in various 'levels' which relates to the protection against a different calibre of ammunition, the velocity fired and the number of shots fired at the same area. The glass is made to size and shipped directly to site for fitting in special metal frames which once completed ensure the window is aesthetically the same as any standard window.
The use of ballistic (or bulletproof) glass in residential property is a concept which SRX have been presenting as part of our security consultancy packages for several years now. Whilst people will always associate the use of any armoured material as protection against ballistic or explosive weapons, their use provides excellent protection from manual and mechanical forced entry tools, therefore allowing you to do away with unsightly metal shutters or security bars.
