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.

Why Does Glass Security Matter for Religious Centers?

Violent hate crimes targeting places of worship are on the rise across the US. That’s why it’s so important for religious center leaders and administrators to start taking security seriously.

No one wants to imagine a peaceful Sunday afternoon service turning violent, but the reality is that it can happen anywhere. Churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples are all at risk of being targeted by active shooters looking to harm people because of their extremist beliefs.

Hate crimes targeting religious properties, such as broken windows and graffiti, are another threat that these types of facilities face. Though not as dangerous to the physical security of worshipers as other types of crimes, they can lead to unwanted costly repairs and cleanup.

A key concern that many religious center stakeholders have when it comes to beefing up security is that they do not want to inadvertently make it a less welcoming place for congregants. This is a valid concern, but there are ways to improve physical security without drastically altering the appearance or atmosphere of your facility.

Riot Glass® for Active Shooter Protection

Riot Glass® offers a full range of ballistic-grade (bullet-resistant) glazing shields that provide varying levels of active shooter protection for religious facilities.

These glazing shields can be overglazed (mounted on top of) any facility’s existing glass doors and windows to stop bullets and prevent forced entry. 

Many of our ballistic-grade security glass solutions come with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) ballistic resistance ratings all the way up to a UL 752 Level 8 rating. This means they can resist a high-speed, multi-shot attack from an AK-47 rifle using .308 150-grain military rounds.

Whether a place of worship is the primary target of an active shooter, or it just happens to lie in their path, Riot Glass® drastically improves the safety of its congregants. 

These ballistic glazing shields will stop bullets up to a certain point and, even when riddled with bullets, prevent a would-be intruder from passing through to harm those that are inside.

The significant delay to forced entry created by Riot Glass® creates a valuable window of time that allows those inside to react by calling the authorities and barricading themselves somewhere safe inside until the police arrive and neutralize the threat.

Riot Glass® for Vandalism Prevention

In addition to providing a high level of protection against forced entry and active shooters, Riot Glass® also serves to mitigate damage due to vandalism on religious properties. 

Many of our security glazing for religious facilities comes with a proprietary abrasion-resistant coating that resists marring, chemical attacks, and graffiti. Also, the extreme impact resistance of Riot Glass® means that vandals won’t be able to throw a rock or a brick through windows.

Whether you want to protect your facility’s priceless stained glass or other decorative glass, or simply avoid unnecessary glass door and window replacement, Riot Glass® is an ideal solution.

Retrofit Security for Churches, Mosques, Synagogues, & Temples

All our products are designed to be retrofitted right on top of your existing glass and can be mounted into or onto almost any existing framing system. The only exception is if your building is extremely old and the framing has deteriorated.

Retrofitting is a much more cost-effective and convenient solution than replacing the existing glass with new security glass for religious centers. It also means you can keep any historic glass that is an important part of your place of worship’s architecture.

We custom build all our security doors and windows for churches, mosques, synagogues, temples, and any other type of religious building. You can be confident that you’re getting a 100% personalized security solution that will fit your windows and doors like a glove.

Our retrofit security solutions for religious facilities are designed to have a minimal footprint and function just like your traditional window glass. You don’t have to worry about worshipers feeling that they’re coming into a fortified building, but you’ll know that they’re safer there.

More Reasons To Choose Riot Glass®

The extreme impact resistance of Riot Glass® not only protects against man-made threats but also against unpredictable mother nature. This is especially important if your religious center is located in a hurricane zone or an area prone to strong windstorms.

A flying piece of storm debris can easily smash through your building’s windows, potentially causing injury and leaving the property exposed to expensive water and wind damage.

Besides the impact protection, Riot Glass® can help with sound attenuation (noise reduction) to make your place of worship even more peaceful during services and events. 

Additionally, Riot Glass® can help with insulation to keep indoor temperatures comfortable year-round for congregants and staff. This can even increase the overall energy efficiency of your religious facility to cut down on monthly utility bills, so you can invest the money elsewhere.

Building occupants need time to react, call 911, run away, or barricade in a safer place.

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!
