In these challenging times, personal safety is a growing concern for people in Pakistan. With an alarming rise in theft cases and the relaxation of gun laws, individuals are increasingly seeking ways to protect themselves and their loved ones. One effective measure gaining popularity is the installation of armored bulletproof glass for cars. After all, cars, especially when traveling on desolate roads late at night, can easily become targets for theft and gun violence. This is where Pakistan Safety Glass steps in, prioritizing the comfort and safety of its customers by providing top-notch bulletproof glass installation services for various applications, including vehicles, banks, embassies, police departments, jewelry stores, and government and military buildings throughout Pakistan.
WHAT IS BULLETPROOF GLASS?
It’s important to note that the term “bulletproof glass” is a bit of a misnomer. Technically, it should be referred to as “bullet-resistant glass” because no material can offer absolute protection against all types of bullets. Regardless of how well-designed the material is or how high its protection level, sustained ballistic attacks will eventually breach the glass.
Bullet-resistant glass typically consists of a combination of two or more types of glass, each chosen for specific properties like hardness and elasticity. When a projectile hits, these laminated layers of glass react differently, with the harder layers stopping the projectile and the softer, more elastic layers flexing to absorb energy and prevent shattering.
Bullet-resistant glass is crafted with layers of polycarbonate plastics, like Makroclear™, Cryolon, or Tuffak, wedged between sheets of glass to absorb bullet impact. The thickness of these layers, including acrylic options, determines the glass’s resistance. The glass is bonded with chemicals like polyurethane or PVB in a vacuum to remove air pockets, enhancing strength and transparency. This process ends with pressurization and heating, creating a robust glass piece.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
When a bullet hits this glass, it doesn’t shatter like regular glass. Instead, it flattens out as its energy disperses laterally through the layers. This rapid absorption of energy slows down the bullet, preventing it from penetrating or causing substantial damage. Although the glass may break within the layers, the bonded plastic prevents it from shattering outward, protecting those behind it from flying glass shards.
