The Importance of Bulletproof Design in the Architectural Industry

Throughout the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors, architects are tasked with designing buildings that meet code and look good as well as protect residents from external factors. The latter is particularly important for buildings that carry a high risk of being subject to theft or other criminal activities, such as banks, gas stations, government agencies, pharmacies, and retail stores. These facilities typically integrate some form of bulletproofing to protect their employees and customers against bullets and other projectiles. By partnering with an experienced and knowledgeable bulletproofing company, such as Bullet Guard, architects can better ensure their building designs provide the necessary protection for residents.

Bulletproof Design Considerations

There are many factors to consider during the creation of a bulletproof building design, including:

  • What type of building is the design for?
  • What functions need to be performed at the bulletproofed areas?
  • Are there any specific aesthetic requirements for the bulletproofing elements?

The answers to these questions, among others, help determine what type of bulletproofing material and design is appropriate for the building project.

Do’s and Don’ts of Bulletproof Design

Some tips for effectively bulletproofing a residential or commercial building include:

Considering bulletproofing during the design stage. Designing a building with bulletproofing in mind ensures the bulletproofing elements fit properly with the other structural and aesthetic building components and the bulletproofing is sufficient to provide the level of protection necessary for the given environment and application.

Budgeting for bulletproofing materials. Bulletproof glass costs more than regular glass because it is designed to do much more than regular glass. It is important to keep this in mind when establishing the budget to avoid running out of funds during the project.

Understanding the role of bulletproofing in various facilities. Different facilities face different levels of risk from different threats. For example, banks have a high chance of being targets of theft. Understanding the level of protection needed for a particular building helps architects create a bulletproof design that is effective and cost-efficient.
