Composite Armor

Strongwell's armor panels are manufactured utilizing a proprietary resin mix and specially constructed glass reinforcements. The components are combined in the pultrusion process with a specific ratio of glass to resin. A controlled curing sequence creates a panel that, when struck by a bullet or other projectile, will delaminate in a way that absorbs the energy and stops the projectile.
 

 

Common Applications:

  • Judge Benches
  • Jury Boxes
  • Convenience Stores
  • Bank Teller Areas
  • Panic Rooms and Safe Rooms
  • Storm Shelters
Before/After
