Bullet Resistant Panels

Most customers mistakenly believe that Bullet Resistant wall armor is called Kevlar. In

fact customers often refer to Bullet Resistant fiberglass panels as bullet board, wall armor, safe room material, Kevlar panels, bulletproof wall panels, or just bulletproof materials.

Bullet resistant Fiberglass is the best choice for wall armor. It’s a fraction of the cost of Kevlar panels or any other bullet resistant materials for walls and is the most commonly used product in the bulletproof industry to protect any surface that is not a window. It’s the foundational building material for the Bulletproof industry.

• It is lighter than comparable products such as steel.
• Easily processed for custom applications (sizing etc.)
• Less expensive to install.
• Non-ricochet
If you are looking for a bullet resistant Panel to provide any type of wall protection or to protect a counter or judges bench or to protect a school or classroom wall, chances are you are looking for Bullet resistant fiberglass panels. This is the choice of the Financial institutions, Government, Military, High level Corporate Security and the wall armor material used for commercial and residential safe rooms.

Bullet Resistant Specifications

Flame Resistance

LEED Point Qualified Product

  • Class 1-A fire/smoke-rated Bullet Resistant Fiberglass Panels

Maxguard Gold is one of the only commercially available Class 1-A fire-rated Bullet resistant materials that meets both Bullet Resistant and Fire Resistant Standards. MaxGuard is being used in commercial, government, School structures, Hospitals, wherever ballistic protection is desired, while complying with numerous federal and state flame and smoke protection regulations. MaxGuard provides greater security and protection in walls, doors, counters, or other applications, as compared to polyester-based ballistic laminates. The difference is that MaxGuard Gold will not burn and does not produce toxic smoke when exposed to the threat of fire. As we are aware, fire is normally present in large scale violent events, so it’s imperative to choose a bullet resistant product that is safe in the event of a fire.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system,  providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types – commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle – design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout, and significant retrofit. And LEED for Neighborhood Development extends the benefits of LEED beyond the building footprint into the neighborhood it serves.

LEED provides a point system to score green building design and construction. The system is categorized in five basic areas: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality. Buildings are awarded points based on the extent various sustainable strategies are achieved.
