Explore the different levels of security glass

What we know as bulletproof glass isn’t 100% bulletproof.  The glass is actually made of bullet resistant thermoplastic, sometimes laminated in layers that include traditional tempered glass.

Heartland Glass is proud to partner with companies, cities and service centers that require additional safety measures such as bullet-resistant or ballistics glass.

There are actually eight different levels of resistance with bullet-resistant glass. Those levels are designated by the Underwriter’s Laboratory to determine the type of protection each level offers. UL conducts extensive tests on bullet-resistant glass, which determines what kinds of firearms each can withstand.

Silver Screens are a thing of the past

Andersen Windows and Doors has announced an improvement to the aesthetics of 100 Series standard insect screens. New

screen mesh will enhance the look of 100 Series insect screens, especially with dark color windows. The

new mesh will be used on all windows manufactured after October 24, 2016.

The screen mesh for 100 Series window insect screens is changing to a charcoal color mesh; silver mesh has been used previously. The charcoal mesh is currently used on the 100 Series patio doors. Aligning the mesh between both products provides several benefits:

1) Improved insect screen aesthetics, especially on dark color windows

2) Reduced glare, which makes the insect screen less noticeable

a. Light reflection on charcoal mesh ranges from 5% to 20%

b. Light reflection on sliver mesh ranges from 40% to 70%

3) Consistent look between windows and patio doors

The picture below highlights the differences between the two mesh colors.
