Continue reading to learn more about the industries and specific applications where Bullet Guard products are used.
Banks & Financial Centers
Banks and financial institutions are obvious targets for robberies and require comprehensive security systems to protect their valuables and employees. Installing bullet-resistant glass deters criminals from robbery attempts and keeps citizens and employees safer in the event of an armed robbery. A bullet-resistant barrier between employees and the public is an essential safety measure to protect those who work with large amounts of money. Several types of protective barriers can be installed in these locations including partitions, windows, doors, and enclosures.
Convenience stores seem to have a near-constant influx of customers throughout the day. At night, however, business typically slows and the risk for armed robberies increases, particularly in stores that are open 24 hours per day. Installing security devices like bullet-resistant counter windows provides employees with a life-saving security measure without hindering their ability to interact with customers.
Hotels & Lodging Facilities
Hotels have staff working around the clock, and these workers come into contact with many people on a daily basis. Since hotel lobbies are open to the public and generally unsecured, installing bulletproof glass in hotel windows, doors, and other lobby areas ensures that front desk staff feel safe and secure.
Law Enforcement & Police Stations
Even though police stations are largely safe places, it’s always possible for a disgruntled citizen to walk in and endanger the officers working. To provide the safest possible environment for law enforcement officers, bulletproof protection glass can be installed in lobby areas and windows. Bullet-resistant doors featuring automatic locks are another smart option that can be used to separate the lobby area from the rest of the building. Developing a custom-designed bullet-resistant barrier is the best way to provide optimal safety for those working at the station.
Political Institutions & Government Buildings
High-security buildings, such as in Washington DC or other capital cities, feature windows designed to resist high-velocity rifle fire and other types of ballistic threats, such as handgun fire. These windows are manufactured to a much higher standard than those used in other commercial premises, such as banks and stores. Protecting key areas with the installation of bullet-resistant doors is another important security measure that provides added attack resistance to a building.
Schools & Universities
To protect students and faculty from active shooters and terror-related incidents, bullet-resistant products are increasingly being incorporated into schools and universities. Products such as bullet-resistant windows, doors, and framing systems can all be used to improve exterior security or create safe areas within a building’s interior.
In addition to these products, bullet-resistant paneling and framing systems can provide additional ballistic protection even in the areas surrounding entry points, creating a larger protected area that is more challenging for an intruder to get past. In many situations, the presence of these systems alone can deter violent offenders before they act.
Stadiums & Arenas
Due to large crowds and a significant amount of money exchanged at stadiums and arenas, these public venues are typically high-risk areas for crime. To protect employees and reduce this risk, bulletproof glass can be installed to protect box office employees. Many well-known stadiums have adopted this security measure, including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Arrowhead Stadium, The Indiana State Fairgrounds, and more.
