Bullet Resistant Panel Manufacturing Process
ArmorCore®’s UL 752 bullet resistant panels are manufactured by combining woven-roving fiberglass with resin, precision-assembled and cured in a press with heat and pressure while maintaining quality and consistency.
With our unique capabilities including hydraulic presses, water jet cutting, industrial sanders and testing facilities, ArmorCore®’s bullet resistant panels are offered in a variety of standard size sheets ranging from 3’, 4’ & 5’ widths by 8’, 9’ & 10’ lengths of any combination. We also offer custom cutting to fit your unique design with the ability to cut to any 2-dimensional size, pre-drill holes, bevel cut etc. Our intensive Quality Assurance Program in conjunction with our ISO 9001:2015 registration will ensure every panel we manufacture meets and/or exceeds our customers’ requirements.
How Do Bullet Resistant Fiberglass Panels Work?
ArmorCore® is designed to absorb a bullet’s energy within the panel’s laminate. The composite laminate consists of fiberglass reinforced thermoset resin capable to defeat a bullet through a process of energy absorption within the laminate. Once the panels have begun to delaminate, any additional shots become progressively easier to defeat because the energy is more readily absorbed by the laminate. In contrast to steel barriers, the fiberglass laminate is designed to prevent ricochet of the bullet as well as spalling to the non-threat side of the panel.
