Riot Glass Security Panels Dallas

It’s simple. Riot Glass security panels protect your property better than security window films.

Security window films provide a protective layer to increase the level of protection your glass provides. Installed on the glass and (hopefully) secured to the frame using an anchoring system. Security films hold broken glass together. They make it more difficult to get inside by breaking through the glass.

Professionally installed security window film can delay entry for up to 1-2 minutes. Thicker films are better than thin ones, but that doesn’t change the fact that security films only delay entry through the glass.

In a lot of instances this delay is enough. One to two minutes is a lot of time when alarms are going off and you’re worried the police are on their way.

When you want or need more protection however, it’s time to consider Riot Glass.

What is Riot Glass?

The system’s containment grade poly-carbonate sheeting and unique, patented framing system gives you extreme protection against forced entry attempts, looters and thieves. Even under sustained assault the Riot Glass system keeps people out.

Why is it better than Security window film

Security window films were originally designed to contain glass fragments caused by explosions and terrorist events. They were then re-purposed for forced entry prevention, anti-intrusion, and active shooter defense.

Riot Glass security panels were created out of frustration with security window films and other anti-intrusion methods. It was designed from the ground up go to stop intruders from smashing their way inside through the glass.
