SHOTGARDŽ BALLISTIC FIBERGLASS ARMOR PANELS
Creating a ballistic shield for ultimate protection
North American Bullet Proof manufactures ShotGardŽ bullet resistant composite armor. This UL Listed composite laminate is produced from high quality E-glass strand woven into a special ballistic grade cloth and impregnated with a proprietary thermoset polyester resin binder. The resulting multi-ply configuration produces a controlled delamination when ballistically attacked. Delamination, or separation allows for the bullet to be trapped. This eliminates the potentially dangerous effects of ricochet or spalling (chipping or splintering of the projectile upon hitting a ballistic shield or object). Bullets are imbedded within the plies of the laminate sheet unlike the high potential for ricochet with steel, aluminum or ceramic armor panels.
Bullet resistant panel weight and flexibility
ShotgardŽ ballistic panels are typically a fraction of the weight of steel armor for identical performance levels and can be cut, drilled and fabricated using conventional carpentry tools. No special reinforcing of traditional studs walls is required and ShotGardŽ can be attached to new walls by either drywall screws or construction adhesive. ShotGardŽ is compatible with most contact cements and construction adhesives making ShotGardŽ ideal for incorporation into wood door and millwork applications. Armor panel technology has never been so flexible.
