When you’re looking for the best of the best in all-glass doors for your property, look no further than Riot Glass, Inc.'s AG Series. These doors offer high-level security combined with sleek, modern aesthetics.
This article will cover everything you need to know about these one-of-a-kind glass doors, including what they are, the different ways you can customize them, and some potential use cases.
The AG Series by Riot Glass, Inc. is our proprietary line of glass ballistic doors (bullet-resistant glass doors).
These doors are capable of withstanding both ballistic rounds and forced entry attempts, making them an ideal choice for hardening a building’s fenestration security — without compromising on aesthetics.
Riot Glass All-Glass Doors consist of low-profile top and bottom door rails containing one of our patented bullet-resistant glass infills. Each door system also comes with framing, heavy-duty hinges, closers, and mounting hardware.
Beyond the basic assembly components, our AG Series doors can be highly personalized and customized to suit your aesthetic and practical needs.
AG Series bullet- and forced entry-resistant glass doors are available with glass-clad polycarbonate or full polycarbonate infills, in various thicknesses and ballistic ratings.
Take a look at the chart below to understand the different UL 752 ballistic resistance ratings that we offer*:
*We offer security glazing up to a UL 752 level 8 rating, meaning they are capable of stopping 5 rounds from an AK-47 rifle using 150-grain military rounds.
Any Riot Glass security glazing infill you choose will look and feel just like your regular door glass. AG Series doors do not block out natural light or affect visibility in any noticeable fashion — they fortify your property without making it look fortified.
Door rails: AG Series door rails are available in different heights and finishes. They can accommodate ballistic-grade infills from 1/2” to 13/16” thick, depending on your security needs.
Pull handles: Our AG Series Doors come with a choice of various ladder-style pull handle options by default. However, we can also accommodate the handles of your choice if you have different ideas when it comes to design.
Door size/style: Riot Glass All-Glass Doors are available in both single and double door options. The standard sizes we offer are 3/0 x 7/0 for single doors and 6/0 x 7/0 for double doors, but we can provide custom-made-to-order sizes up to 130” in height.
Framing: AG Series framing is available in a wide variety of finishes for you to choose from to match your property’s aesthetic.
Finishes: The following finishes are available for AG Series framing and door rails. There may be additional options available, or we can accommodate your custom finish ideas as well.
Glass tints: The default color for our ballistic-grade infills is untinted, or crystal clear. But, we can also tint your glass doors for added privacy, performance, or aesthetic purposes. Here are just a few examples of the different glass tints we offer:
Glass doors serve important functional and aesthetic purposes on modern buildings, but they are also highly vulnerable to the range of security threats that commercial properties face every day.
From high-end specialty retail stores to schools and government buildings, there are very real threats of forced entry, burglary, smash-and-grab theft, rioting and looting, and even active threat scenarios for building owners to worry about.
So, how do you harden a building’s defenses against such threats, without sacrificing natural light, visibility, and curb appeal? The answer to that question should be clear by now — with Riot Glass All-Glass ballistic doors.
AG Series doors can withstand even the most prolonged and determined forced entry attempts, denying access and keeping the bad guys out, even if riddled with bullets.
Riot Glass, Inc.’s AG Series doors are one of our many retrofit fenestration security solutions, meaning they are designed to fit into your existing openings without the need to demolish and replace surrounding materials.
These high-security doors replace your existing glass doors and can be combined with other security glazing retrofit solutions to reinforce all surrounding glass and framing.
For example, if you have a glass door that’s part of a large glass storefront, and is flanked on either side by floor-to-ceiling windows, we can also provide security glazing shields to protect the existing windows on either side from forced entry and ballistic attacks.
These types of retrofit security solutions are extremely cost-effective and are ideal when you don’t want to disrupt business with a large glass replacement project. AG Series doors and other Riot Glass security glazing retrofits are ideal for:
