Manual Attack & Bullet Proof Windows

Australian Fire Control manufactures bulletproof windows tested and certified to Australian Standards. 

Highly suited for applications that require windows that have certified resistance against handgun attack up to G2 ratings, such as protective services buildings; police, security guards, embassies, cash offices, banks, airports and other high-security buildings.

Categories available: 

Bullet resistance: Glass is classified as bullet-resistant (BR 1 to BR 7) when it stops the penetration of projectiles in accordance with EN 1063. The testing procedure requires that the test specimen be shot at 3 times with the appropriate weapon and calibre bullet. The test specimen must withstand the attack. The test not only determines the resistance class but also whether or not there has been splintering on the inner face.

Impact resistance:
Glazing is classified as impact-resistant when it prevents the penetration of thrown or hurled objects. Impact resistance is classified according to EN 356 in the resistance classes P1A to P5A. The test methods simulate the impact of heavy projectiles by dropping 4.11 kg metal balls with a diameter of 10 cm in free fall. The sample is considered to have passed the test when no ball penetrates the glass.

Manual attack:
Glazing is classified as burglary resistant, i.e. resistant to forced entry or exit when it delays the creation of an opening in accordance with EN 356 and EN 1627. The basic classifications are specified as P6B, P7B and P8B. This glazing often uses a combination of glass/polycarbonate rather than glass alone in order to minimise the weight. The testing procedure requires that a 2 kg axe be mechanically swung at the glazing. The number of hits necessary to create a 400 mm x 400 mm opening determines the resistance classification. If a small puncture of the glass allows the opening of any building elements, (e.g. as in the case of doors with panic bars) both the building element and the glass must be checked for compliance with the appropriate standards.
