A Guide To Improving Security for Glass Doors in Commercial Buildings

Written By: Brad CampbellFebruary 14, 2024

When it comes to commercial building security, glass doors are typically one of the weakest and most difficult to secure entryways.

While commercial glass entryway doors add to aesthetic appeal and provide functional benefits, including high levels of natural light transmission and visibility, they’re also extremely vulnerable to forced entry.

Intruders can easily break through a standard commercial glass door to gain unauthorized access to a business or facility, potentially resulting in property damage, theft, and even physical harm to building occupants.

Because of these risks, it’s important for commercial building owners and business owners to take a look at their glass door security measures and make improvements that will protect the people and property inside against a full range of threats.

Types of Vulnerable Glass Doors:

Commercial glass doors, typically made of tempered safety glass, are commonly perceived as more secure than standard glass due to their strength. However, tempered glass doesn’t provide adequate protection against determined intruders. It can be shattered with minimal effort using heavy tools or objects. Moreover, aesthetic concerns and the limitations of certain security solutions contribute to the lack of proper protection for glass doors in commercial settings.

Securing Glass Doors 24/7:

To ensure continuous security, consider installing high-security windows and doors resistant to forced entry and possibly bullet-resistant, depending on specific needs. 

These doors feature robust security framing and glazing that can withstand prolonged attacks. They offer protection against various threats, including burglary, vandalism, and active threats, providing peace of mind for building occupants day and night.

Riot Glass Security Solutions for Glass Doors

Riot Glass, LLC offers unbreakable door conversion kits and all-glass security doors for all types of commercial buildings. Here’s how they work:

Unbreakable Glass Door Conversions

For metal-framed glass entryway doors, the best way to achieve a fully forced entry-resistant door is with an unbreakable door conversion kit from Riot Glass.

These kits combine ArmorPlast® Gen II Series door conversion framing and ArmorPlast AP75 bullet-resistant security glazing panels with a UL 752 Level 1 ballistic resistance rating (resistant to 9mm handgun attacks).

UL 752 has been tested and certified according to the ASTM F3803 forced entry resistance test, which simulates a spontaneous attack by multiple perpetrators (such as a group of rioters) using readily available objects to try and force entry.

Passing this test means that the security glazing is fit for use in even the most high-security facilities, including certain types of government buildings.

All-Glass Security Doors

For all-glass entryway doors, which typically have minimal top and bottom rails holding them in place, we recommend installing AG Series all-glass security doors.

These all-glass doors are designed to meet the most stringent demands of security experts and design professionals alike. They combine the virtually unbreakable strength of Riot Glass with sleek, minimalistic, yet heavy-duty hardware that’s available in a variety of finishes to match any architectural style.

AG Series doors are easy to retrofit and can be customized with a variety of forced entry-resistant and ballistic-grade security glazing infills, providing options for different security needs.

Contact Riot Glass today for a free consultation on security, glass doors, and everything in between. We’ll help you get a comprehensive security system in place for your commercial glass doors and windows.
