What Does Blast Protection Do?

When a bomb blast occurs, a wave of pressure radiates out from the center of the blast. When the pressure wave comes into contact with traditional glass, the glass shatters and flies dangerously towards anyone nearby.

Blast protection or blast mitigation, protects the glass from this dangerous pressure wave, keeping it intact and reducing the likelihood of injury due to flying shards of broken glass.

Unfortunately, the threat of bomb blasts is very real and you never know where one could go off. Having the right amount of blast protection for your property’s glass doors and windows can help keep you and your employees safe in the event of a nearby explosion.

Besides the risk of injury, a blast that shatters your windows also means expensive repairs and cleanup, and potentially even more damage inside the building. That’s why it’s so important to protect your glass doors and windows.

Is There Such a Thing as Blast Proof Glass?

The effectiveness of blast-resistant glass depends on the strength and distance of the blast from the windows. Blast-resistant windows are available in many different compositions and strengths, but the fact is that there are no 100% explosion-proof windows.

In order for blast-resistant windows to work, the material they are made from must be highly impact-resistant and flexible. The best blast-resistant glass actually isn’t made from glass at all, but rather from polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate is a type of naturally transparent thermoplastic. It is incredibly strong and resilient and has 30 times the impact resistance of acrylic. In fact, polycarbonate is so strong that it is considered to be virtually unbreakable.

There’s always a risk of injury and damage due to a nearby bomb blast, and there’s no way to make an explosion-proof building. However, with the right blast-resistant windows, you can drastically increase your property’s blast protection.

Riot Glass® Blast Resistant Windows & Glazing Shields

Riot Glass® offers a full line of polycarbonate glazing shields for blast protection for glass doors and windows. 

What’s a glazing shield, you ask? Well, glazing just refers to any type of architectural glass (i.e. glass doors, windows, and walls). 

A glazing shield is a type of blast mitigation barrier that we mount in front of your existing glass to protect it and prevent it from shattering dangerously inwards. Our polycarbonate glazing shields are the closest thing you can get to explosion-proof windows. 

Even though they’re not technically glass, these blast windows are just as transparent as regular window glass. They also have a special abrasion-resistant coating and a glass-like surface hardness.

When you install Riot Glass® over your existing glass doors and windows, you’re creating an invisible barrier against the primary cause of injuries due to bomb blasts: flying fragments of sharp, jagged glass. 

The blast-resistant windows disperse the force of the blast to keep your existing glass intact, protect those inside your property, and reduce expensive repair costs.

Blast Resistant Glass Retrofits

Riot Glass® is designed to be retrofitted into or onto almost any existing glass door or window framing system. The only case in which you might need to replace the framing is if your building is extremely old and the framing has deteriorated.

This makes Riot Glass® a much more affordable solution for blast damage and injury mitigation than other types of blast-resistant glass on the market. Riot Glass® is an ideal solution for government buildings, religious centers, schools, offices, retailers, and more.

We custom-build all our security glazing solutions to fit your property like a glove. We hope you never have to experience a bomb blast, but if you do, there’s no better protection than a Riot Glass® retrofit.

Other Benefits of Riot Glass®

Riot Glass® doesn’t just protect glass doors and windows from bomb blasts. It also provides 24/7 protection against forced entry, burglary, vandalism, rioting, looting, active shooters, storm damage, and other threats. 

It doesn’t matter what type of impact it is, Riot Glass® will protect your existing glass and prevent it from shattering, keeping bad guys or inclement weather out, and saving you the hassle of expensive repairs.

We also have a complete range of ballistic-grade glazing shields with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) ratings up to a UL 752 Level 8 rating. This means the glazing shield can stop a high-speed, multi-shot attack from an AK-47 rifle using .308 150-grain military rounds.

The best part about retrofitting your property with Riot Glass® is that it doesn’t significantly change the appearance of your glass doors and windows, block out natural light, or block your views. 

All our products are designed to have a minimal footprint, so your business or commercial facility doesn’t lose its curb appeal and your windows don’t lose their functionality.

REGULAR GLASS SAYS
“PLEASE DON’T COME IN”

Riot Glass® is heavily fortified glass that is becoming the new standard in glazing protection.
Building occupants need time to react, call 911, run away, or barricade in a safer place.
You are buying time, and time buys options.

  • We had several windows broken and our store looted during a protest in downtown Los Angeles. Riot Glass provided a solution to prevent this from happening again. We still have a very open, inviting look to our store so we are happy about that.

    At first, we were skeptical whether something clear would provide enough protection under the extreme conditions we experienced, but after witnessing the demonstration of the product we were convinced. Unbelievably strong!

Frequently Asked questions

What sizes are available?
Riot Glass® (RG) and ArmorPlast® (AP) are available in maximum sizes 72″ x 120″. If window openings exceed that size, we simply reconfigure the mullions using our AP Series support mullions specifically designed to accommodate our AP and RG Framing. RG Security Laminates (our exclusive line of security window film) is available in 72″ maximum widths at any length. 
Will it look like my existing glass?
Riot Glass®, ArmorPlast®, and RG Security Laminates all look like regular glass. Depending on the thickness, visual acuity can be slightly affected, but overall you won’t see a distinguishable difference. Yellowing is not a concern and is covered by the warranty. For added safety, all three products allow police and patrol services to see inside your property. Privacy tints are available as an option in most Riot Glass® products.
How do I clean and care for security glass?
Traditional cleaning methods work on all types of Riot Glass® security glass and laminates. All of our security glass products have a protective outer layer to avoid scratching and marring. The process is similar to caring for a new car. You put it through all kinds of paces every day, but you do so with care and attention to detail. Treat security glass the way you would the finish on a fine automobile and you’ll enjoy years of trouble-free service. Always follow the cleaning instructions that come with your Riot Glass® purchases for optimal product longevity.
What is the warranty on the glass and framing?
Warranties vary by product and can also change depending on whether the application is commercial or residential. In some cases, our products carry a limited lifetime warranty, while others are protected for up to 15 years. Your security specialist will provide details on both warranty coverage and life expectancy for your specific product needs.
How do I know it will work?
All of our products have been thoroughly tested in highly accredited laboratory settings and, more importantly, in real-world situations. While there are no ironclad guarantees, every retail store, commercial building, school, and home needs some level of security glass protection. Security glazing products are designed to delay and deter, and in many cases are the determining factor between life and death.
What happens during a site inspection?
Our security specialists will do a complete threat assessment, discuss your goals, and provide a detailed, easy-to-read proposal. We will also measure your windows and frames, then evaluate the overall condition and retrofit adaptability to determine the best solution for your property.
Do I need to remove signage and graphics?
It depends on which product you select and where the graphics are displayed. During the site inspection, our expert security consultant will advise whether graphics must be removed and replaced or stay intact.
What is UL 752? What’s the difference between ballistic and non-ballistic ratings?
Underwriters Laboratories™ offers multiple ballistic rating levels. Designed to measure bullet resistance, ballistic ratings factor in the grain (weight), caliber, and velocity of the ammunition. Non-ballistic (containment grade) products allow bullet penetration, but won’t break down or appreciably diminish in strength. In other words, the bullets leave holes, but the panels remain intact, keeping intruders out of the building.
