Fixed Transaction Windows

Permanently installed, fixed transaction windows do not have any moving parts and are often used where a secure barrier is needed between employees and customers. Government buildings, including post offices and municipal offices, often utilize bullet-resistant transaction windows at service counters to ensure the safety of employees and citizens during interactions involving sensitive information or transactions. Fixed transaction windows are classified according to their level of bullet resistance, typically rated using standards such as UL or NIJ. These ratings range from lower levels (e.g., UL Level 1 or NIJ Level I) to higher levels (e.g., UL Level 8 or NIJ Level IV), indicating the window's ability to withstand different calibers and velocities of bullets.
