Ballistic Glass and Target Hardening

When you own a property, your top priority has to be the art of keeping its visitors and tenants as safe as they can possibly be. Your next goal is generally to protect the structure and grounds from unnecessary danger. Target hardening is a way to guard your building or car against those who would do it harm. There are a number of ways that you can accomplish target hardening, and one of those ways is by installing bullet proof glass. This thick barrier will slow down criminals and give them one more reason to stay far away from your property. We'll look at the benefits of this special kind of glass, and why it should be a non-negotiable for nearly any property owner. 

Bullet Proof Glass for Offices

Office buildings can easily be seen as targets for criminals. A terrorist is often looking to strike wherever will make the most impact, and what could be worse than going after regular workers who just want to finish out their 9 to 5 in peace? The use of guns has unfortunately increased in recent years, in part due to the glamorization in the media. It may not be easy to identify ballistic glass for several yards away, but it won't take long for criminals to realize that their bullets aren't going where they're supposed to. This will not only slow them down, but it can ultimately cause them to give up before anything is damaged. Today's bullets can penetrate up to 15 mm of mild steel, a feat that all property owners must begin preparing for. Even stray bullets can end up causing a lot of damage, even if your building was never the intended recipient in the first place. 

 

Bullet Proof Glass Price

The price of bullet proof glass,will depend on the type of protection you choose. If you're exploring bullet resistant glass levels you should know that bullet resistant glass film will cost less than replacing all the windows with bullet proof glass. If you're looking for bullet proof glass for cars, going through a custom manufacturer can open you up to a world of options that you may not have considered before. And while bullet proof glass is an investment, you can see why people would spring for safety when you consider the consequences of failing to do so. A bullet proof window can be the difference between literal life and death. It's a chance that many would prefer not to take if they don't have to, especially considering the number of crimes and terrorist plots in the world today.
