Polycast Bullet Resistant Acrylic Sheet
Despite all of the improvements in security technology, bullet resistant barriers have been proven to be the only measure that deters crime before it happens. This is especially important considering there is approximately one convenience store robbery for every two convenience stores in the U.S. and that bank robberies have increased by 136 times in the past 50 years.
Polycast offers a solution to these problems and when one
considers the four most important characteristics in choosing a
bullet resistant sheet (adequate protection, weight, optical
clarity, and value) the choice is obvious.
From our lightweight MP 1.25 sheet to our Acryshield L3, Polycast
offers ballistic protection against virtually all hand guns
including super power .44 magnum models.
Polycast weighs 48% less than glass with the same UL rating and
slightly less than polycarbonate with the same degree of bullet
Superior Optical Clarity
Crystal clear Polycast transmits significantly more light than
conventional bullet-resistant glass or polycarbonate. It is
attractive in almost any environment and maintains its beauty over
time. It is also available with a super abrasion resistant coating
(SAR) that has 45 times the abrasion resistance of uncoated acrylic
for maintaining its look over time.
Because Polycast will not turn yellow, haze, degrade or turn
brittle when exposed to the elements, it typically provides a much
better long term value than other forms of bullet resistant glass.
Plus, it can be cut to any size using standard tools without
chipping or cracking and can be formed into curved shapes. Its
edges can also be polished to a beautiful clear luster, unlike
polycarbonate, where edges turn black when polished.
