At Tyneside Safety Glass, we have over 40 years worth of experience in manufacturing ballistic resistant glass, helping to improve the safety of those who's work and lives take them into volatile situations and dangerous terrains. We take our work as bullet resistant glass manufacturers very seriously, as the high quality of our ballistic resistant glass can prove to be the difference between life and death.
Our intensive research and development programme sees our ballistic glass manufacturers taking advantage of the latest materials and production methods to create the highest quality construction. Our bullet resistant glass is available as curved or flat panels, and our comprehensive range complies with worldwide safety and security standards. Whatever threat you might face, from small arms fire to heavier artillery, we can create a bullet-resistant glass construction that will provide the necessary protection.
We have built up a wide-ranging client base as bullet resistant glass suppliers thanks in part to the discreet nature of our products. Our ballistic glass manufacturers know how important a low profile can be, especially when it comes to armoured vehicles, because if a car or other vehicle is obviously protected with ballistic resistant glass then it may become a target. It is vital that a security vehicle able to travel without drawing attention but be able to repel attack when necessary, and that is where the quality of our bullet resistant glass becomes essential.
Tyneside Safety Glass provides bullet-resistent glass for manufacturers who serve the armed forces, private organisations and civilians around the world.
We also act as bullet resistant glass suppliers for various buildings and establishments including banks, government agencies, embassies and private residencies.
Tyneside Safety Glass fully understand that lives depend on the reliability of our products and as such testing is stringently carried out in our in-house ballistic facility to continually develop and improve our products. All of our products are tested and certified by official European external independent accredited testing facilities to ensure they meet the following international ballistic standards:
When heated glass is required due to inclement climatic conditions which creates the need for de-mist or defrosting we are able to offer a heated glass option on all of our bullet resistant glass. This is by utilising our state of the art machinery which lays and heats tungsten “invisible” wires on to the surface of the PVB (Poly Vinyl Butryl) interlayer which is then laminated in between the glass construction.
Tyneside have designed and developed a system which is laminated into the ballistic glass construction then fixed to the vehicle during the fitting of the glass to ensure that bullet resistant glass is not detached following an attack.
Through use of tried and tested specialist interlayers Tyneside can provide solutions to support the control of heat absorbtion and solar control within vehicles for added comfort, we can also offer non reflective glazing solutions for use in architectural applications.
A full range of tinted glass options can be supplied including sun bands on windshields.
State of the art bending machinery which can locate heat into specific zones during the bending process is utilised which allows us to bend complex deep curvature glass without compromising optical quality.
A wide range of accessories can be specified on our glass including radio antennas, rear view mirror mounts, screen printed obscuration bands with dot matrix, bespoke framing solutions, rain sensors etc…
We offer a wide range of polished edge finishes and chamfers on our bullet resistant glass and all curved glass polycarbonate products are edge sealed for increased protection and durability.
