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.

What Security Threats Do Educational Facilities Face?

In 2019, there was an average of one school shooting per week across the United States. Of those shootings, 32 took place at K-12 schools. 

Unfortunately, the issues of gun violence and active shooters in schools and on university campuses are here to stay. This is one of the biggest threats that educational facilities face in our society today, but it’s not the only one.

Like other types of commercial properties, schools can also be the targets of property crime, such as vandalism, smash-and-grab theft, and burglary. You might not think of schools as a top target for criminals, but they are full of valuable equipment like computers.

Surveillance systems, alarms, and security guards can go a long way towards protecting schools from active shooters and other criminals, but there’s one vital thing that they don’t do: create a physical barrier to entry.

That’s where security glazing (i.e. security glass and glass-like products) comes in. It is designed to reinforce and protect a building’s glass doors and windows to keep bad guys out and, in the case of schools and universities, keep students and staff safe at all times.

Riot Glass® Bullet Resistant Glass for Active Shooter Protection

Riot Glass® offers bullet-resistant glazing shields that are designed specifically with schools in mind. These glazing shields look and function just like standard window glass, but they can withstand ballistic attacks and prevent active shooters from gaining entry to the building.

Many of our bullet-resistant glass and glass-like security solutions for schools receive a ballistic resistance rating from Underwriters Laboratories (UL), which is a leading organization that rates all types of commercial safety and security products.

The highest level of bullet-resistant glazing we offer has a UL 752 Level 8 rating. This means that the panels can resist a high-speed, multi-shot attack from an active shooter using an AK-47 rifle loaded with .308 150-grain military rounds.

Our glazing shields can be applied over an educational facility’s window and door glass to stop bullets and prevent an active shooter from shooting out a window and climbing through it, or shooting through a glass door to reach in and open it from the other side. We also offer fully-rated framing and ballistic doors in varying configurations.

Vandalism & Forced Entry Prevention for Schools & Universities

All of our bullet-resistant glass protection options for schools will also provide the highest level of protection against vandalism, forced entry attempts, and other types of impacts. 

A would-be intruder can try all they want to smash through Riot Glass® with a bat, a crowbar, a rock, or any other type of tool or heavy object, but they aren’t going to get through and are often unable to damage the existing glass behind it.

In addition to bullet-resistant glazing shields, we also offer containment-grade (non-ballistic) glazing. This type of security glazing won’t stop bullets, but it can prevent an active shooter from forcing entry because it retains its strength and shape even when riddled with bullets.

Retrofit Security Glazing for Educational Facilities

Riot Glass® security solutions are specifically made to be retrofitted into or onto almost any existing school window or door framing system. This makes it much more cost-effective than replacing the existing glass, especially for schools that have many large windows and glass doors.

Our security glazing has low profile framing and looks and feels like the existing glass, so you don’t have to worry about your school looking like it’s been reinforced against security threats. But, you will know the difference in the unfortunate event that an active shooter or another criminal, targets your facility — it will be protected 24/7 by the virtually unbreakable Riot Glass®.

Riot Glass® is the ultimate retrofit fenestration security solution for schools and universities of all ages and sizes. It’s an invaluable investment in the safety of your staff, students, and property.

What Other Benefits Does Riot Glass® Have?

Besides providing active shooter and forced entry protection for schools and universities, Riot Glass® also protects against all other types of impacts. For example, it provides blast damage and injury mitigation in the event of a nearby bomb blast as well as protection against flying storm debris during a hurricane or windstorm.

Additionally, Riot Glass® can help with noise reduction (sound attenuation) inside schools to make it easier to teach and learn. The security glazing helps to block outdoor noise from traffic, as well as reduce the noise that gets transmitted between classrooms, hallways, etc.

Riot Glass® can even make schools more energy efficient because it adds an extra pane of glass to doors and windows, improving insulation and solar heat blocking. This can translate into big savings on your monthly utility bills that really add up over the years.

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!
