How we are different

We create groundbreaking products that retrofit into existing glazing to fortify your building. Our patented ArmorPlast® systems have received broad national adoption. Our brand focus is on improving glass security and the fenestration security of the space as a whole.

Riot Glass® products have an elegant, minimalist appearance that blends seamlessly into existing glazing configurations. Our systems are incredibly strong and are adaptable to almost any existing window system in widely varying architectural styles: from ultra-modern to historical properties. Riot Glass® is high-level protection designed to thwart the most severe attacks.

The Importance of Glass Security for Hotels & Restaurants

Hospitality businesses, such as hotels and restaurants, have the difficult task of protecting guests, customers, employees, and equipment from everyday threats — all without hurting the curb appeal or atmosphere of their establishments.

So, what threats do hospitality businesses face, exactly? Well, the most common risks are forced entry, burglary, smash-and-grab theft, vandalism, and rioting and looting. Other concerns are threats to personal safety like an active shooter scenario or a nearby bomb blast.

In addition to all these risks, hospitality business owners also have to worry about the possibility of storm damage (depending on where the hotel or restaurant is located).

Riot Glass® Prevents Forced Entry in Hotels & Restaurants

Hospitality businesses can be targets of forced entry attempts for a variety of reasons. Perhaps someone walks by and sees something of value in a guest’s hotel room, so they try and break a window to grab it and make a quick getaway.

Or, a burglar might target a restaurant after closing time to steal expensive items and cash stored on the premises. In the worst-case scenario, an active shooter opens fire in a hotel or restaurant with the intention of causing harm to a large number of people.

Whatever the scenario may be, having the proper forced entry protection for glass doors and windows can greatly mitigate the risks of expensive losses and personal harm. And that’s where Riot Glass® comes in.

Riot Glass® offers a comprehensive line of security glass and glass-like glazing shields that are ideal for overglazing restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality property windows and doors to prevent forced entry.

Our security solutions provide the highest level of impact resistance available to most commercial properties in order to prevent property crime and keep bad guys out. We design all our solutions with the safety of your patrons, staff, and property in mind.

Riot Glass® Provides Hospitality Storm Damage Protection

For restaurants, hotels, and resorts in the southeastern US, especially in coastal regions like southern Florida, hurricanes and violent windstorms are a big concern. 

Riot Glass® is the perfect alternative to traditional storm damage mitigation barriers like board-ups, storm panels, and hurricane shutters. It creates a formidable barrier to protect your business and anyone inside, yet looks and functions just like your regular windows.

If your hospitality business doesn’t have the proper glass protection in a storm, a flying piece of debris can come crashing through a glass door or window at any time. The broken shards of glass fly dangerously inwards, potentially injuring patrons or staff. Not only that, but your business is then exposed to heavy rains, water damage, and wind damage.

Riot Glass® is incredibly impact resistant and effectively disperses impacts from storm debris to mitigate all these risks.

Retrofit Security Glazing Solutions for Hospitality Businesses

For hospitality businesses like hotels and restaurants, budget is always one of the top priorities. We understand that replacing your existing doors and windows to boost security usually just isn’t in the cards. That’s why Riot Glass® is specifically designed to be retrofitted into or onto your existing door and window frames, so there’s no need to replace any of them.

Your existing glass stays safe and sound behind the Riot Glass®, while the security glazing protects your hospitality business from all manner of threats — whether they be man-made or natural.

Another major concern for hospitality business owners and administrators is how security upgrades will affect the appearance of their businesses. A restaurant’s or hotel’s curb appeal plays a huge part in attracting new clients, so we don’t want to noticeably change your business's appearance.

Riot Glass® security glazing and framing for hospitality businesses are all designed to have a minimal footprint and is virtually invisible, so your customers won’t even know it’s there. You also don’t have to worry about blocking out natural light or blocking views.

Other Reasons To Go with Riot Glass®

Riot Glass® doesn’t just boost the security of your property to protect against everyday threats. It can also improve the performance of your business’s windows and doors in other ways.

For example, like UV blocking windows for hotels and restaurants, Riot Glass® can help with solar heat blocking to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures and reduce your reliance on air conditioning in hot weather. It can also help insulate windows to keep warm air from HVAC systems during cool weather.

This means that you’re running your heating and cooling systems less all year round, which can cut down on your monthly utility bills and reduce your overhead operating costs.

Additionally, adding extra panes of security glazing to your property’s windows helps with noise reduction, making the indoor atmosphere more enjoyable for everyone. This is especially ideal for hotels where street or air traffic noise is an issue. Your guests will appreciate the good night’s sleep!

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.

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.
  • 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!
