We attempt to destroy all of our products to prove a point: Just how indestructible they are. To ensure each system offers the highest level of delayed forced entry, we test our frame, entrance and glass together against multiple attacks – from bullets and bricks to sledgehammers – to name a few. No one does more to protect what you value most.

Whether for a school or a hospital, a retrofit or a new building, our forced-entry-resistant glass and glazing systems, ArmorGarde and ArmorDefend, are tested to, and above, recognized industry standards so you can specify and install with confidence.

Single-source glass and glazing systems tested together to go above minimum industry test levels.
