Transparent armor technology can be called a breakthrough for defense and security agencies. It is about using glass as a piece of armor. For example, take the windshield of a bulletproof car. Bulletproofing won’t be complete until the vehicle gets a bullet-resistant windshield. Similarly, the windowpanes of the car need to be replaced with blast-resistant glass.
Let’s see how glass fabrication is changing the use of glass
- Use Everywhere
A piece of toughened glass can be used anywhere without any worries. Since it is safe from physical damage even from blasts, there is little to worry about toughened glass. For example, you can increase the size of windows without worrying about the safety of the glass. Similarly, toughened glass doors can be replaced with wooden doors. You can keep an eye on outdoors from your glass door.
- Bulletproofing made easy
With bulletproof glass, you can make everything safe. Whether it is your windowpane or a glass door, you can feel safe and secure behind the glass. Its bullet-resistance power will protect you from enemy fires and blasts. No one will be able to break the glass barrier so you get enough time to call help.
- Get better views
If you are bulletproofing your car, you can increase the size of windshields so you get a better view of the outside. In other words, there will be no shield for your enemies to hide. First, you will feel safe in your car and second, the better and bigger outside view will keep you in a better position. You can see what is happening outside and locate a safe way to get out of a situation.
- Safe transportation and traveling
Railways provide safe transportation of goods and travel to long distances. It has been made possible with the built quality of rail engines and bogies. The use of more glass allows travelers to enjoy outside views. Similarly, the engine drivers get a better and bigger of the tracks ahead. The use of glass is increased in rails because the glass is toughened to remain safe.
Impact resistant railway windshield can withstand the pressure of wind and the stray particles that travel with the wind. Also, the glass provides effective protection against rioting mobs. The driver and passengers can feel safe as the glass won’t allow anything including bullets and shrapnel to cause any harm to them. Also, it won’t be an exaggeration to say that the new safety windshield has improved the speed of trains.
