There are currently two European reference standards for ballistics, which cover the testing and classification of resistance to attack by bullets:
EN 1063: for tests on glass in the construction (security glazing).
EN 1522-1523: for tests on windows, doors, shutters and blinds.
These standards include:
- the elements of construction subjected to tests;
- a different classification illustrated by the letters ‘BR’ for classes of glazing and ‘FB’ for classes of windows, doors, shutters and blinds;
- tests which are only carried out for the core of the element for standard EN 1063, additional tests that also test the joints and structures for standard EN 1522-1523.

Who Can Benefit from Ballistic Glass?
Ballistic rated doors and windows offer a robust solution to prevent determined criminals from entering your property with the use of guns or other weaponry. Ballistic glass provides the highest possible level of security, which makes it ideal for buildings with superior security requirements. These might include banks, embassies, police stations, vaults or any business or residence who wants to maximise the safeguarding of its property and personnel.
Nobody likes to imagine extreme circumstances where bullets or blasts may be used to try and force entry inside a building. But unfortunately, these scenarios do occur, particularly in high-profile buildings, which is why it’s essential that you include ballistic rated doors as part of your security strategy.
Selecting Your Ballistic Steel Doors
If you’re worried that ballistic steel doors may look heavy and unappealing, then think again! Modern ballistic doors and windows blend in seamlessly with the visual charm of your building, and complement the overall look rather than detracting from it.
Your ballistic door can be customised in terms of colour, material, design and sizing to fit the unique requirements of your building and your next installation project.Free Consultation
