Converting Commercial Glass Entryway Doors into Unbreakable Glass Security Doors

Written By: Brad CampbellApril 26, 2024

Commercial glass entryway doors offer a range of benefits for businesses and facilities, from providing high levels of natural light transmission and visibility to complementing the aesthetics of a building and improving its curb appeal.

However, traditional commercial glass, usually tempered safety glass, is highly vulnerable to security threats, including forced entry, burglary, smash-and-grab theft, vandalism, rioting and looting, and even active threats.

Because of these vulnerabilities, many business owners and commercial building owners implement different glass door security measures, which can include things like security window film, retrofit security glazing, roll-down shutters, window bars, and grates or grilles.

While these types of traditional security measures can work well to protect commercial properties against forced entry, they’re not always viable, mainly because some cities, landlords, and business owners don’t want visible security solutions in their storefronts. Plus, some of these solutions only provide after-hours protection. 

For always-there, invisible glass door protection, there’s an even better solution: converting your commercial glass entryway door into an unbreakable glass security door.

How To Convert a Commercial Glass Door into an Unbreakable Glass Security Door

Converting commercial glass entryway doors into unbreakable glass security doors can be done using a Riot Glass® AP2 unbreakable door conversion kit.

These conversion kits include everything you need to make almost any commercial glass door incredibly impact and forced entry resistant, turning a vulnerable entryway into a secure barrier that protects against a full range of threats.

Two Key Components of Riot Glass Glass Security Door Conversion Kits:

  1. ArmorPlast® AP75 forced entry- and bullet-resistant security glazing infills
  2. AP2 door conversion framing

AP2 conversion framing can be retrofitted into most existing commercial glass entryway door systems, whether they’re single, double, or any other type of glass doors.

The conversion framing itself is forced entry resistant, but the most important job it does is hold the virtually unbreakable ArmorPlast AP75 security glazing in place. 

This security glazing has passed the rigorous forced entry ASTM F3038 testing protocols, making it suitable for use in even the most high security applications, such as government facilities. 

This forced entry resistance level means that the security glazing can withstand prolonged, violent attacks by multiple persons using various hand tools and other readily available objects (the type of scenario that could happen during a riot).

Additionally, AP75 has a UL752 Level 1 ballistic resistance rating, meaning it can withstand ballistic attacks using a 9mm handgun. 

While the glazing can eventually be penetrated by bullets, it won’t shatter or significantly diminish in strength, even if riddled with many bullets — it remains a barrier to forced entry and continues to protect people and property inside from harm and theft.

The Bottom Line

For 24/7 protection against a full range of security threats, you can’t beat a Riot Glass AP2 unbreakable glass security door conversion for commercial glass entryways.

When used in tandem with other retrofit security glazing solutions for glass storefront windows, or even alongside after-hours solutions like roll-down security shutters, these door conversions provide the utmost security for commercial properties of all types, from luxury retail stores and high-risk businesses to schools and government buildings.
