Riot Glass® Passes Rigorous ASTM F3038 Forced Entry Test

Written By: Brad CampbellOctober 9, 2023

We’re excited to announce that Riot Glass has passed one of the most difficult forced entry resistance tests out there, ASTM International’s ASTM F3038 forced entry test.

This sets Riot Glass even more firmly apart from other security glazing products out there by certifying that it can withstand prolonged forced entry attempts from multiple attackers, using a variety of tools and attacking different parts of the access denial barrier.

What Is ASTM F3038 Forced Entry Resistance Testing?

The ASTM F3038 testing standard is one of the most rigorous forced entry testing methods out there, equivalent to the US State Department’s forced entry testing standard.

In order for any forced entry-resistant material, component, or system to pass this test, it must undergo a series of timed attacks carried out by a team of six individuals utilizing tools like sledgehammers, axes, bolt cutters, pry bars, picks, and even battering rams.

This testing method is designed to simulate a spontaneous mob, such as a group of rioters, using readily available hand tools to try and force entry through the specimen being tested.

During the simulated attack, the team of testers attempts to break through every part of the impact-resistant barrier using different methods. 

A specimen passes the test if all parts of it withstand the series of attacks, meeting or exceeding the test level within the specified timeframe.

What Riot Glass Passing ASTM F3038 Forced Entry Testing Means

Riot Glass passing the ASTM F3038 forced entry resistance test means that it can be used for access denial in some of the most secure facilities you can imagine, such as high-security government buildings and similar properties.

Needless to say, this is very exciting news for us and our clients, who can be even more sure that they’re getting the absolute best in fenestration security with Riot Glass!
