|Status:||Draft for Comment|
This standard 19/30397889 DC BS EN 1063. Glass in building. Security glazing. Testing and classification of resistance against bullet attack is classified in these ICS categories:
- 81.040.20 Glass in building
- 13.310 Protection against crime
This document specifies performance requirements and test methods for the classification of the bullet-resistance of glass (consisting of one or more layers of glass) and glass/plastic composites.
The term “bullet-resistant glazing” applies to products that have the obvious characteristics of glass, but it is understood to include also laminated products of glass and plastics and in some saces, insulating glass units.
This document applies to:
attack by handguns, rifles and shotguns;
glazing in buildings, for interior and exterior use;
the glazing product itself, assuming proper fixing;
The protection provided by bullet-resistant glazing depends not only on the product itself, but also upon the design and fixing of the glass.
