Riot Glass has a diverse suite of security products that comprise the best of the best in glass and door protection:
Riot Glass™ panels are designed to be retrofitted into or onto your existing framing.
ArmorPlast™ can be over-glazed (outdoor-mount) as a shield to protect your existing glass, or back-glazed (indoor mount) behind your glass – both designed to thwart forced entry or as a ballistic barrier. Our expert dealer network will assess your property and recommend the best solution for your needs.
Security glass laminates go right on top of your existing window glass and look and feel like regular window glass. Don’t let appearances deceive you—these robust sheets actually create an invisible barrier capable of holding your glass doors and windows together after repeated high-force impacts.
When glass treated with this type of sheet is broken, the overlaying sheet holds the glass shards in place to maintain the integrity of the glass and prevent it from shattering inwards.
This tough security barrier is ideal for protecting your vulnerable windows and doors against forced entry attempts and smash-and-grab theft. However, security laminates also protect against other types of threats, such as storm damage, vandalism, and many other types of accidental and intentional damage.
We can over-glaze (apply from the outside) or back-glaze (apply from the inside) our laminate treatments on top of your existing glass, depending on the best solution for your property. Retrofitting your property with Riot Glass security glazes is much cheaper and less disruptive than undertaking a complete window replacement.
We recommend a threat assessment to determine which Riot Glass™ solution is best suited for your project. We offer consulting services and also work with outside consultants to help you in the determination.
There are three main categories of threats: forced entry, active shooter, and bomb blast. Riot Glass™ offers solutions designed to address each of these scenarios.
Our virtually unbreakable retrofit solutions stop crimes before they happen. Would-be intruders are usually deterred very quickly when the glass does not break.
Many ArmorPlast™ retrofit solutions do not require removing your existing glass.
Ballistic resistant Riot Glass™ is the ideal protection against active shooters. It is designed to stop bullets and prevent entry with shatter resistance.
If a ballistic-grade solution is not in your budget, a forced entry retrofit can still keep shooters out. In this scenario, bullets travel through the Riot Glass™, but the glass panel remains in the frame to prevent entry.
Bomb blast mitigation solutions range from security window film to a complete Riot Glass™ retrofit.
A blast consultant usually determines the threat level and the GSA performance level your site needs to meet. When the performance condition is established, we implement a system to meet or exceed those standards.
Our most popular products are retrofitted into existing window openings. ArmorPlast™ solutions can be mounted on the inside or outside of the framing, and are warrantied for up to 15 years on the exterior of the building. This alleviates the costly process of repairing or replacing the framing and surrounding materials.
When we retrofit, you get the same or similar protection to that of full window replacement at a much lower cost. In many cases, the existing glass is not broken, even after an attack with heavy tools and rocks.
If your window frames are not compatible with a retrofit, the existing glass panes can be removed and replaced with Riot Glass™ RG Series glass which is available in a multitude of layups. This is common in sliding doors and windows where clearances are tight. If the existing framing cannot bear the additional weight, the entire frame must be replaced.
Riot Glass™ solutions are available for new construction or as replacement glazing for remodels. When installing security glass, the extra weight, frame thickness, and superstructure support must be taken into account.
Riot Glass™ is available in lighter-weight materials for reglazing into existing walls where weight is a concern.
