AK47 vs SILATEC

BULLETPROOF GLASS
OUTSIDE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.
INSIDE NOTHING.

NORMAL ARMORED GLASS IS THICK AND GREEN. SILATEC BULLETPROOF GLASS IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE SECURE. LIGHTER. THINNER. AND ALSO AS CLEAR AS GLASS.

What kind of protection are you looking for? I will be happy to assist you.

Regardless of what happens outside, inside you can sit down, drink a glass of wine and read a book. Because SILATEC thwarts even the most brutal attacks. Because, in our testing, we send it through hell.

Ballistic testing according to the European standard EN 1063 is only the start. We also test with a wide range of weapons. With the Kalashnikov AK 47 and "Standard ammunition" – to armour-piercing rounds with special incendiaries. An inferno. The wall of glass can also withstand sniper weapons such as the Russian Dragunov. (For this weapon we also have the test certificates in accordance with the Russian firing standard "GOST").

 

The advantages of
SILATEC bullet proof glass


  • light weight

  • Crystal clear
  • Made in Germany
SILATEC armored glasstraditional armored glassSECURITY


We test our Bulletproof glass with different weapons

Pistols, revolvers, rifles, machine pistols, Kalashnikov AK47s or the "Dragunov" sniper rifle - here you can find SILATEC bulletproof glass, certified and tested. Whatever the standard: in Europe the ballistic classes in accordance with DIN EN 1063 (BR1 to BR7), in Russia in accordance with the "GOST Standard" or, for military purposes, the NATO standard "Stanag".

If that is not enough, we test to your requirements. Because SILATEC develops bulletproof glass in a completely personalised way according to your requirements. Even for only one armoured glass pane. Ask us.

All values are subject to standard tolerances. Our special glazing guidelines must be observed.

This portfolio shows our current product range. We also produce unusual special solutions. Ask us.

We reserve the right to make changes in the technical details, changes in the product range and changes in the instructions. Legal regulations must be complied with in all applications. Our special glazing guidelines must be observed, otherwise our guarantee expires.

Fire protection:

The combination of fire protection and bullet resistance is a property-related special solution. There is no fire safety certificate in the form of a general permit from the construction authorities. For that reason the consent of the entire system, i.e. glass, frame and connection to the component require the approval of the authorities in individual cases. Fire protection glass is generally arranged on the attack side. This gives an asymmetrical glass design. The installation direction must be agreed with the responsible authorities.

FAQ

HOW THICK IS BULLETPROOF GLASS?

Because SILATEC bulletproof glass is so thin and lightweight, it can even be retrofitted.

There is no simple answer to tell you how thick our glass is, though. That is because the thickness of our bulletproof glass depends on the weapons and ammunition it has to beat. Here are some general guidelines: 

Weapons 

SILATEC bullet proof glass

Handguns (9mm Luger, Magnum .357, Magnum .44) 

at least 20 – 25 mm

Rifle (M16, AK47, Nato G36, Nato G3)  at least 35 – 45 mm
Rifle (firing specialized ammunition e.g. armor-piercing rounds)      at least 60 – 100 mm 

   

SILATEC bulletproof glass is the perfect choice to retrofit in existing projects because it is so lightweight and thin. For example: Triple-glazed, heat-insulated glass is around 36 mm to 50 mm thick and typically weighs 30 to 60 kg/m². It is therefore completely possible to retrofit bulletproof glass to replace triple glazing – e.g. SILATEC BR4-NS 25/52. This ballistic glass (BR4-NS) even protects against Magnum .44 caliber ammunition, as well as being very thin, at only approx. 25 mm, and weighing in at only 52 kg/m².

Here is a further example: The maximum glass thickness or weight which can be fitted in existing frames is often limited – that means that the preferred bulletproof glass option can often not be fitted. In this case we are happy to offer a tailored service. We are able to develop bulletproof glass for you on an individual basis. If no ballistic glass from our product range meets your requirements, we will be happy to produce customized bulletproof glass for you.

Single-purpose fixed glazing is usually easier to retrofit than, for example, windows or doors with turn or tilt fittings. We will need to analyze the conditions at the site in each case. The shot-resistance properties of the frame remain unchanged when only the glass pane is replaced.

We look forward to running you through the process in more detail in a personal consultation.  

 

HOW DOES BULLETPROOF GLASSWORK?

The impact of a shot on a fixed object is a complex physical phenomenon. This is especially true of glass, as its behavior on entry and penetration is completely different to that of other materials such as metal or wood. Glass breaks at speeds of several thousand meters per second (approx. 10,000 km/h), far faster than the speed of the bullet, which is generally several hundred meters per second. For example, a projectile of 7.62 x 51 caliber, fired from a NATO G3 rifle, travels at just 1,000 m/s (approx. 3,000 km/h). The formation of fissures in the glass caused by the impact of the bullet thus outpaces the bullet. This significantly reduces the bullet resistance of glass.

This concept is particularly relevant to conventional bulletproof glass as it only consists of multi-layer glass.

SILATEC counters this behavior by constructing our bulletproof glass from different transparent and extremely resistant materials.

 

HOW DO YOU BREAK BULLETPROOF GLASS?

There is no single answer to this question. It is almost like asking: How fast can cars go?

In any case, it is definitely hard work and takes a long time. Yet it also depends greatly on which production principle was used to manufacture the glass and how high the resistance class of the bulletproof glass is – i.e. how thick it is. The differences are huge. Bulletproof glass made with polycarbonate, for example, is much more difficult to penetrate than conventionally manufactured bulletproof glass.

SILATEC bullet proof glass is particularly resistant and is “tested” by crooks all over the world all the time. Why not watch our videos on the subject or visit us and see yourself?

 

IS BULLET PROOF GLASS ALWAYS GREEN AND DARK?

We specialize in producing extremely clear bulletproof glass. You would not know that SILATEC glass was bulletproof just by looking at it. Conventional bulletproof glass appears relatively green because it is quite thick. The thicker the glass is, the greener and darker it appears. At Silatec we construct bullet proof glass from extremely transparent materials and we keep it as thin as possible. That is what makes our bullet proof glass so exceptionally transparent. And by the way, we believe this is further security advantage. An observer or potential attacker will not realize that they have bullet proof glass to contend with.   

 

SILATEC PRIVATE PROTECTION is designed especially for private landowners to provide absolute all-round protection. It protects against a range of handguns, intruders and more…

SILATEC ARMORED GLASS offers maximum protection against intruders. Probably the safest glass in the world.
