Bullet-Resistant Doors for Ultimate Protection

Fortifying Your Space

Protect Entry and Exit Points

Project managers and contractors utilize bullet-resistant doors at entry and exit points, such as main entrances, back entrances, and loading docks, where unauthorized access is a concern. Bullet-resistant doors are made to withstand impact from bullets and other forcible entry methods. These doors are also much sturdier than standard doors, making it difficult for thieves to simply kick or pry them open. By incorporating bullet-resistant doors into their security strategy and implementing them effectively, risk management professionals can help enhance the safety and security of buildings and facilities, protecting occupants and assets from potential ballistic threats.

Retrofitted Ballistic Doors

DefenseLite retrofit installations consist of polycarbonate and other proprietary materials, which are layered onto existing doors to reinforce their resistance to ballistic threats. Retrofitted ballistic-rated glass can withstand multiple bullets from certain firearms before showing signs of weakening and potential penetration. Even after such events, bullet-resistant doors retain structural integrity, effectively thwarting attempts by armed attackers to gain unauthorized entry. DefenseLite solutions are highly resilient and capable of withstanding repeated blows from blunt objects, such as hammers or crowbars, as well as ballistic threats from handguns and rifles.

UL 752 Door Glazing

The UL 752 rating system classifies materials based on their ability to withstand ballistic impact from various firearms. DefenseLite products are designed to meet or exceed the standards outlined by UL 752, ensuring that they offer reliable protection in real-world scenarios. For example, a door may be rated to withstand penetration from handgun ammunition (UL 752 Level 1), rifle ammunition (UL 752 Level 8), or even higher-powered rifle ammunition (UL 752 Level 10). Bullet resistant doors are perfect for high-risk areas within a building, such as server rooms, control centers, cash handling areas in banks, reception desks in government buildings, or security checkpoints in airports.
