Armoured OneShooter Attack Certified Glass
SHOOTER ATTACK CERTIFIED GLASS
IN AN ACTIVE SHOOTER ATTACK, EVERY SECOND COUNTS.
One big step towards security that many schools and businesses are taking is the installation of security glass in windows and doors. This is designed to slow down or deter an attacker from gaining entry with force or a gun.
Be leery of companies that claim to have “bulletproof” window film, or even “bulletproof” glass. Bulletproof does not exist, and it definitely doesn’t exist by adding film to your standard glass. Armoured One makes no claim to be bulletproof. There is only bullet resistance. Companies claiming to add their security window film to standard glass and making it bullet-resistant is a lie and a marketing scheme.
Armoured One’s Security Glass is the first glass to be tested with a standard based on the history of active shooters and is the first glass that has passed testing using the Shooter Attack Test Method.
WHAT DOES PASSING A SHOOTER ATTACK TEST MEAN?
Armoured One has passed the Shooter Attack Test where the glass was shot 10 times with an AR15 .223 round and then hit with a 100 lbs. ram at various forces. After being shot the glass is struck minimally two (2) times at 50-foot pounds of force by the ram and must stay together. If the ram penetrates the glass before the completion of the two hits it is considered a failure. This test is completed by FILTI.
Other companies have utilized timed tests where they throw bricks or hit it with hammers or other objects. This is not ideal as these objects are not used in an active shooter scenario. The other major concern is that there is no measurable amount of force being used after it has been shot. This can cause a false sense of security and open the customer to liability if an attacker gets through in less time than tested.
Not one of Armoured One Film’s competitors has been able to pass the Shooter Attack Test. FILTI tested 3M’s 8 mil window film applied to 1/4″ tempered glass and it failed to meet the minimal standard to qualify as Shooter Attack Test.
