What Is Forced Entry?

The term "forced entry" means to enter into a property forcibly, typically by forcing a lock or breaking a glass door or window.

One of the best ways to protect a property against forced entry is to reinforce all its glass doors and windows, also known as glazing, with forced entry-resistant glazing products.

These types of products come in a variety of styles and compositions, from laminated security glass to polycarbonate glazing shields.

When you install security glazing, you’re creating a physical barrier to forced entry of all types, whether it be burglary or an active shooter scenario.

Riot Glass® Forced Entry & Ballistic Resistant Doors & Windows

Riot Glass® offers a full range of forced entry-resistant doors and windows, including ballistic-grade (bullet-resistant) glazing shields.

Depending on your specific security needs and goals, Riot Glass® can provide the solution you need to achieve an extremely high level of forced entry protection.

Riot Glass® offers virtually invisible protection against burglary, smash-and-grab theft, active shooters, and rioting and looting.

All of our forced entry and ballistic resistant door and window glazing shields receive a rating from the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), which is the global benchmark for safety and security products.

Riot Glass® forced entry resistant glazing products are rated from containment grade (non-ballistic) up through a UL 752 Level 8 rating, meaning they can resist a high-speed, multi-shot attack with an AK-47 rifle with .308 150-grain military rounds. 

But what does this all mean for forced entry prevention? 

Well, even our containment-grade glazing shields can be riddled with bullets without becoming dislodged or appreciably diminishing in strength. As for the ballistic-grade glazing shields, they can stop bullets — and bad guys — dead in their tracks.

This level of protection prevents even the most determined would-be intruder from passing through a broken window or reaching through a broken glass door to open it from the inside.

A Retrofit Forced Entry Prevention Solution for Commercial Properties

Riot Glass® forced entry resistant door and window glazing shields are all designed with your convenience (and budget) in mind. This means they can be retrofitted into or onto almost any existing framing system.

Riot Glass® can be installed easily and quickly right over the top of your existing glass, creating an invisible barrier to protect it from forced entry. 

There’s typically no need to replace your existing glass or its surrounding framing unless it is not strong enough to support the new Riot Glass®. This is usually only a concern on very old buildings with deteriorated framing.

In the event that a sheet of Riot Glass® gets damaged during an attempted break-in or in some other way, it’s easy and affordable to replace.

What Applications Is Riot Glass® Good For?

Riot Glass® custom-designed retrofit solutions are perfect for any commercial building where you want 24/7 protection against forced entry. Our clients include schools, office buildings, government facilities, correctional facilities, religious centers, and high-end retail stores.

Forced entry-resistant doors and windows are especially ideal for luxury retailers looking to protect large glass storefronts against burglary, smash-and-grab theft, and rioting and looting. 

Riot Glass® can turn an ordinary glass entry door into a mob-proof door, capable of withstanding blows from bats, crowbars, rocks, bricks, and other common tools used to vandalize, break, and enter. It’s the ultimate long-term riot protection for any business.

Bad guys will be surprised when their repeated attempts to gain entry to your property fail. Even after minutes of trying to bash their way in, they’re going to find themselves out of luck and most likely, move on to find an easier target.

Riot Glass® creates a valuable window of time that deters would-be intruders, gives anyone inside the property an opportunity to react, and allows the authorities time to arrive and neutralize the threat.

Other Benefits of Riot Glass®

Besides being the ultimate line of fenestration security solutions, Riot Glass® is the most visually appealing option on the market. Traditional forced entry protection often requires property owners to cover their doors and windows with unsightly bars, gates, board-ups, and shutters.

Not only do methods like these detract from your building’s curb appeal, but they can also be insufficiently strong to keep out determined intruders. They also often don’t protect the glass behind enough to prevent it from breaking, which at the very least can lead to expensive repairs.

With Riot Glass®, these are no longer concerns. Our forced entry-resistant door and window glazing solutions have a low profile and won’t significantly alter the appearance of your existing glass.

This also means that you don’t have to sacrifice your views or block out natural light in the name of security. For a glass-office building or a high-end retail store with a large glass storefront, this is priceless.

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.
