Riot Glass® retrofit systems consist of custom-made security glass and framing designs that provide maximum protection against 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® 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.
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.
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.
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.
