ArmourShield - Intruder Resistant Security Glass

ArmourShield - Intruder Resistant Security Glass Solutions

Glasshape® offers a comprehensive portfolio of fully certified security glass products, including our premium armoured glass, ArmourShield® intruder resistant security glass for protection against sustained attacks from weapons. Armoured glass is made with an inner poly-composite layer that gives it maximum strength and durability.

When subject to an attack, intruder resistant security glass causes weapons to simply bounce off. Even if the surface is compromised, the tough inner layer will remain safe from penetration, preventing the glass itself from spraying dangerous shards over people and property.

Our glass products are suitable for a wide range of applications, and they can be customized and combined with other products to fit your unique specifications.

Glasshape has one of the most experienced and dedicated teams in the industry, and our clients trust us to deliver quality products and services. We have a proven track record of completing beautiful, functional projects across the world, and we are proud of how much our glass products have helped our clients.

ArmourShield® - Intruder Resistant Security Glass - Applications

Whether you need armoured glass or another type of safety glass depends on your specific applications. There are a wide range of security glass products, each designed to provide protection against a number of different threat levels.

In contrast, our intruder-resistant glass products are designed for protection against low-level attacks against buildings, vessels and office spaces.

ArmourShield® - Testing & Certification - AS3555.1-2003

Glasshape® have carried out extensive testing of our intruder resistant glass to AS3555.1 Level 2 in independent laboratories in both New Zealand and Australia. The following videos show independent testing of our AS14T, AS17T & AS22T ArmourShield®  products, all of which passed the required tests.

Testing to AS3555.1 Level 2 requires the glass to be attacked by two men using common hand tools, such as chisels, punches, wedges, screwdrivers, pliers, bolt cutters, hammers, axes, sledgehammers, pry bars and ripping tools—none of which exceeds 1.5m in length, nor 3.6kg in mass. The glass is then rated according to the time required to create an opening in it of no more than 620cm².
