Smartgard® Ballistic / Blast Products


What is Ballistic Glass?
Ballistic Attacks are classified as assaults from handguns, shotguns or rifles. There are two major threats when transparent glazings come under a ballistic attack.

The first is projectile penetration of the glazing. Obviously if the laminate fails the result is often destruction, injury and death.

The second major threat to glass windows while under a ballistic attack is "Spall". Spalling occurs as shards of glass break away from the rear face (protection side) of a laminate as a result of the impact, becoming projectiles themselves. Significant injuries, loss of vision, and death have occurred due to high-spalling laminates.




The LTI Group manufactures three variations of ballistic laminates.
 
Our SmartGard® -GCP series laminate is a "low-spall" product. The protection side of the laminate is a glass layer bonded with a clear adhesive interlayer to polycarbonate. This configuration, is known as a "glass-clad polycarbonate" laminate and offers superior chemical and abrasion resistance on the protection side as glass is a much harder surface then polycarbonate.
