Phoenix for anti-intrusion and ballistic products

Dedicated to the science of soldier and civilian protection, Phoenix Fenestration & Glass combines glass, polycarbonates, resins, acrylic, polycarbonate and glass configurations using PVB, EVA, SGP and TPU Optical films in order to produce lightweight products that offer unsurpassed ballistic and anti-intrusion protection.

The theory behind using multiple layers of glass and composite materials is that when a projectile strikes the first layer of glass, the velocity and kinetic energy is dissipated sideways through the glass and interlayers that bond the glass together. This deforms the tip of the projectile in order to slow it down to the point of being unable to penetrate the non-attack side of the glass/polycarbonate. Ongoing research, development and testing has ensured an ability to produce high-performing lightweight products that save lives consistently:

Class GA – 9mm Parabellum Class RA – 5.56 x 45 (R4)

Class GB – .357 Magnum Class RB – 7.62 x 39 (AK47)

Class GC – .44 Magnum Class RC – 7.62 x 51 (R1)

Phoenix Fenestration & Glass has melded the properties of BulletBlok into an anti-intrusion range that offers additional protection when perpetrators are armed with hand-held implements (axe, sledgehammers, crowbars, etc) because realistically, the success (or failure) of any attempt to forcefully enter (or exit) a structure is dependent on several factors, including the tools utilised, the techniques used, the time available to effect the entry/exit, and the response time of armed response. Phoenix Fenestration & Glass achieves, based on longstanding relationships forged with suppliers and clients such as National Safe Co, who have a deep understanding of the importance of research and development in order to stay abreast of the latest developments within our industry.

Phoenix Fenestration & Glass is SABS 1263 accredited and conducts testing at Armscor, BBA and various other test facilities. From high-security government facilities to national key points or residential guard houses and panic rooms, Phoenix Fenestration & Glass provides the industry with quality products and are renowned for manufacturing world-class ballistic solutions, on time and on budget.
