Plexiglas® Bullet-Proof Acrylic Sheets

Plexiglas® SB

Plexiglas® SB acrylic sheet bullet-resisting glazing material is a lightweight, crystal-clear, non-laminated alternative for UL-752 Class I security applications.

The material offers cost savings when compared with bullet-resisting glass or polycarbonate of the same UL class rating. This version of Plexiglas® SB sheet is listed by Underwriters Laboratories as resisting medium-power small arms in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Plexiglas® SB acrylic sheet is easy to cut, drill, rout and cement using conventional tools. The cell-cast sheets are paper masked, with several UL-752 stickers strategically placed on the surface of the paper.

PLEXIGLAS® SB BULLET-RESISTING ACRYLIC SHEET IS AVAILABLE IN STANDARD SHEET SIZES:

4' x 8' x 1.250"
5' x 8' x 1.250"
6' x 8' x 1.250"

INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS

Access Doors. A lockable, bullet-resisting access door is advisable. The door should open outwards into the customer area to prevent “kicking the door down.” A bulk-type, pass-through device for packages and money bags is also advised.

Undercounter Protection. When bullet-resisting Plexiglas® SB acrylic sheet is installed above counter areas, equivalent undercounter protection should also be provided. Although steel plate is traditionally used, Plexiglas® SB acrylic sheet is also appropriate, with the additional advantages of light weight and economy. In addition, the material's easy fabrication eliminates the need for installation by special tradesmen.

High Ceilings. When unusually high ceilings are present, extending a bulkhead down to meet the Plexiglas® SB acrylic sheet barrier is recommended. The bulkhead can also serve as an engagement for the top of the barrier.
