GlassKote Ballistics Glass 

 

GlassKote Ballistics provides a range of bullet resistant security products designed to protect:

  • Public buildings
  • Residential Homes
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Military Armourned Vehicles
  • Civilian Vehicles

 

BulletKote has been designed to defeat penetration by high energy ballistic projectiles and prolonged physical attacks.

 

A major breakthrough is the significant weight reduction provided by BulletKote which can be up to 50% lighter than other bullet resistant products.

This decrease in weight, now allows buildings protection, that was previously

unattainable.This was due to engineering weight concerns from heavy ballistic glass on the building infrastructure.

 

BulletKote uses a range of technologies that include, Glass, Polycarbonate, mutiple interlayers and nano technologies to provide world class solutions.

 

In addition BulletKote can be designed with increased transparency, to allow for significant improvement on visibility through the panels. BulletKote has provided panels of size 3200x2000mm to the Australian Government, the largest ballistic panels to be made in Australia.

 

BulletKote is tested to Australian and international testing standards using accredited NATA test facilities. Please see table for products below.
