The latest armoring solutions have found many uses in the non-military sector or civilian sector. Bulletproof glass is better suited for making armored vehicles for soldiers. But it can also be used for improving the safety of private cars, trains, and trams. In this blog, we will discuss the many uses of reinforced glass.
First, you should understand the strength of reinforced glass
This glass can withstand the force exerted by a close-range bullet. A bullet fired from a close range will get stuck in the glass instead of passing through. You can compare a minor stone piece traveling at a high speed in the air. This stone has the same force and impact as a bullet. It can also damage a windshield and even break the windshield into fragments.
When you drive a car at a high speed, the vehicle meets many foreign elements including minor stone and wooden pieces. These pieces hit the car at a great speed that increases their impact. If a small stone hits your windshield at a high speed, it can damage the windshield. But no such things will happen if the windshield is made of reinforced glass. It is also called transparent armor.
Reinforced glass is transparent and hence gives a clear view of the road. Also, it is strong enough to prevent your vehicle from damage by harmful foreign elements. It can even keep you safe from bullets and blasts. If you fear for your life, you can make your car bulletproof by adding additional safety layers and using reinforced glass for the front and back windshield.
Non-military use of bulletproof glass
A bullet resistant window can double as a display for showing notifications and running advertisements. It can even be used for entertainment. In short, the properties and functionality of reinforced glass can be changed according to needs. Such windows will be common in the coming years. You will see smart windows on trains and trams.
Another advantage of reinforced glass is its ability to filter sun rays. It can turn opaque on your command and allow sunlight to enter if you want to. Here it can be said that it can protect you from bullets and direct sunlight. You will remain safe in your car, train, and home. If you are constructing a large building, you can use reinforced glass for the façade. It will improve the beauty of the edifice and keep it safe from prying eyes as well.
