    Thank you very much for the very kind review you wrote. Some minor corrections… The SR5096 is not necessarily bulletproof and it’s not hardened. Understandably i’m not going to tell how it’s done but nice to know might be: it’s only 18mm thick!

    Best regards,

      Thanks for the details. 18mm thick is definitely a selling point. I hope you sell a LOT of these because they are well worth the money.

    I live in a hurricane prone area of Florida, is it practical to think of putting this type of glass in a residence?

      Is it safe. Absolutely. Practical? It depends on price. I’ve sent them an email asking for a price range. I have yet to receive a response.

    I live in New Jersey in a relatively wealthy area. I’ve been a bit paranoid since our neighbors home was broken into and have since convinced my father, owner of the estate to purchase new doors and to reenforce the area around the windows with steel bars such that people could not simply break through the exterior wall and get inside. I’ve sent this company message after message speaking about the level of “bulletproof” they consider their highest grade windows and I have no received a single reply.

    So I am wondering, for home security, could this stop lets say; a .22? .226? .357? .44? .30 full auto? and to be completely ridiculous, .50BMG?

    I’m certain if it is bulletproof that we would outfit our estate in these windows but as far as I can tell from other companies like Texas Armoring and such that this is almost impossible without having windows more than 15inches thick and weighing nearly 150lbs each. Even at that, the windows could not withstand multiple clips worth of shots from the .50BMG, or even the .30 AK-47 if multiple clips were used.

      I Don’t think it is bulletproof. Maybe it would stop small caliber shot, 1-2-3 shots, but not what you want. These are mainly in use against direct physical hits with big, but slow moving, objects. for something really bulletproof you would need to buy those 15 inches windows.

      But you’re asking about serious firepower protection there, military grade. There is no bulletproof window that will withstand hits forever.

      If you really want to overcome this you may also need to use metal plates over those windows. Plain metal plates won’t do though. You need to have them created with lots of wrinkles under a certain angle and with a certain nominal height to increase the width a bullet has to go through (same like a tank does with its hull).

      If people use military grade weapons out there, I’d move.

    A few of my construction and developer friends were reviewing the video on youtube and they are keen to import the glass in for construction of residential houses in Malaysia. Crime rate is high here and if the pricing is right there is a good market for the product here
