Ballistic-grade polycarbonate for safety & security applications

Tested to UL ballistics and ASTM forced-entry test methods, PALSHIELD sheets are an effective first level of defense against attack and unlawful entry. Due to its layered, laminated structure, PALSHIELD can withstand both physical attacks and multi-shot ballistic assaults by absorbing impact energy without shattering or spalling.  Architects, engineers, and building owners trust PALSHIELD to withstand extreme threats even while maintaining its aesthetic quality.
Nearly half the weight of glass, PALSHIELD also features an abrasion-resistant coating, which ensures long-term, glass-like clarity.
