EN 1522 bullet resistant windows

Architectural Armour manufacture a range of bullet resistant windows to meet most ballistic test standards, all our windows are UK manufactured to QMS ISO 9001.  When choosing a ballistic window its essential to match the frame ballistic resistance to that of the glass to offer continuous ballistic protection, our frame designs have been tested and certified to comply with EN 1522/3  and NIJ0108.01.  We can also match UL752 ballistic requirements.

The glazing required to meet ballistic standards is multi-laminate and is available in all glass constructions (Spall Allowed) and glass/polycarbonate constructions (No Spall).  In general No Spall, where the final layer is polycarbonate is considered the safer of the two options as the polycarbonate absorbs the force of the bullet preventing fragments of glass breaking away from the laminate construction.  For further information on ballistic  resistant glass please visit our bullet resistant glass page.

Ballistic Secondary Glazing 

London boasts a unique blend of old and new buildings from Georgian garden squares to riverside glass and steel luxury apartments which make the addition of ballistic secondary glazing a bespoke rather than off the shelf product.  Working with you to stay within the remit of listed building we can design an aesthetically pleasing secondary glazing system to achieve the desired level of protection.

Ballistic Primary Glazing

Ballistic window frames can accommodate single or double glazed units to almost all ballistic specifications, utilising years of experience, latest 3D modelling and state of the art manufacturing process we design and manufacture a range of ballistic window options from single windows to complex guard house assemblies all offering continuous ballistic protection.

Combined Blast Protection Explosion

Bullet resistant glass is manufactured from laminated sheets of glass with PVB interlayers, this construction gives the glass blast capabilities, by varying the construction to increase the thickness of the PVB layers the blast resistance can be improved.  Whilst bullet resistant frames are designed to match the bullet resistance of the glass, they do not necessarily offer the same level of blast resistance.  Architectural Armour can manufacture blast and ballistic rated frames to give the desired level of security protection required.

Combined Fire ProtectionFire

Bullet resistant glass is available in E30 and E60 fire resistance, please see our fire resistant glass pages for more information.
