Bullet Resistant Glass
Built to be Impenetrable
Protection Against Every Conceivable Risk Of Armed Attack
Where transparent armour is a requisite component of your Defense strategy, Emirates Glass has a solution. We aim to provide our clients with the ultimate life protection in transparent armour.
Emirates Glass LLC manufactures glass that withstands a wide range of weapon threats, from small hand-guns to high-powered rifles and shotguns. While it maintains the same look and transparency of normal glass, ARMOUR LITE is configured to such a thickness that makes it impenetrable in high- risk situations.
Emirates Glass’ extensive capabilities extend to a vast range of ARMOUR LITE that can be customized to meet specific requirements, no matter how complex the design. ARMOUR LITE glass is made by laminating multiple layers and interlayers of glass under heat and pressure, which binds them permanently into one unbreakable panel. In addition to producing standard safety glass, Emirates Glass manufactures high security glass by layering glass, polycarbonate sheets and PVB according to specific threat level, to create a strong unbreakable pane. ARMOUR LITE can be customized by adding tinting, reflective coating and one-way mirrors, and can also be configured to a desired curvature.
ARMOUR LITE Glass can be used in a wide variety of application including:
- Architectural: commercial, retail and government buildings
- Automotive: VIP commercial and government cars, armoured military and cash transit vehicles
