Ballistics

 

AGP Bullet-Resistant Glass (BRG)) is approved by most of the important International Ballistic Standards such as: NIJ 01.08.01, EN 1063, UL 752, Stanag 4569, ATPD 2352P and VPAM 2006. All products developed and commercialized by AGP comply with the most widely recognized Ballistic Standards in the world such as: H.P. White Laboratories, Impact Physics Laboratory from the University of Dayton Research Institute, ICS Laboratories, Staatliches Beschussamt Ulm, Mellrichstadt and München. In recent years AGP has become an Approved Contractor (Cage Code 08VZ1) to the U.S. Armed Forces as well as other Military Agencies around the globe.

 

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

 

NIJ Standard 0108.01: 

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is the research, development and evaluation agency of the United States Department of Justice. NIJ, along with the Bureau of Justice Statistics(BJS) who defined the standard for measuring the strengh level of ballistic resistance in any kind of material.

 Required for levels II, III-A and III an array of impacts as shown in figure, 4 of them in the corners of a square of side 200mm fifth most impact on the center of the square.


CEN 1063 European Norm:

Is a security glazing standard created by the European Committee for Standardization for measuring the protective strength of bullet-resistant glass. It is commonly used in conjunction with EN 1522 (Euronorm standard for Bullet Resistance in Windows, Doors, Shutters and Blinds) to form a ballistic classification system by which armored vehicles and structures are tested and rated.

 

STANAG:

 Is the abbreviation for Standardization Agreement, which sets up processes, procedures, terms, and conditions for common military or technical procedures or equipment between the member countries of the alliance. Each NATO state ratifies a STANAG and implements it within their own military.

The CEN-BR4 test is more demanding than NIJ III due to the shorter distance between impacts.

 

AGP BALLISTIC LEVELS


The thickness tolerance is about 5%, unless the quotation or purchase order specifies something different.

MULTI HIT

The short distance between impacts makes this test more demanding.

 

AGP BR GLASS GUARANTEED PERFORMANCE

Our formula of High Quality and meticulous selection of materials, in addition to our talented and experienced workforce plus the exhaustive control exercised throughout the whole production process , makes the optimum performance of  AGP products possible.

AGP Multi-Hit exceeds the ballistic requirements of  all International Standards. Normally used for  22 mm BRG  NIJ IIIA & CEN BR4 and CEN BR6.

  • The AGP Multi-Hit Bullet-Resistant Glass has 3 shots in a 5 cm side triangle. Its area is 6 times smaller than a 12 cm side triangle, as is required by the European Norm CEN Level BR4.
  • The AGP Multi-Hit has 3 shots in a 7 cm side triangle. Its area is 3 times smaller  than a 12 cm side triangle, as is required by the European Norm CEN Level BR6.

 

BALLISTIC CERTIFICATIONS

AGP has 20 ballistic certifications for Level III, 15 for level V and 5 Certifications on average for the other levels.

  • UDRI IMPACT PHYSICS LABORATORY NIJ STANDARD
  • ICS LABORATORIES CEN STANDARD
  • H.P WHITE LABORATORY STANAG STANDARD
