Centaman security gates add layer of safety with bullet-resistant glass

Buildings with high security needs can now add another layer of protection with access control gates made from bullet-resistant glass.

Leading security solutions specialist Centaman Entrance Control is offering bullet-resistant glass as an optional extra for its high-security EasyGate SPT model speedgate.

“With increased concerns about gun violence, robberies and break-ins, we have had requests from some of our customers for a product that can withstand impact from ballistic rounds. We are pleased to have found a solution for high-security sites,” said Centaman Entrance Control general manager Michael Bystram.

Government and defence buildings can boost their security with Centaman’s strongest and most durable barrier yet.

The thick layered glass and a steel panel inside the cabinet work to stop bullets by absorbing their energy on impact.

With a resistance class rating of BR3, the glass offers protection from up to a .357 magnum handgun.

A custom-made inner frame holds the gate’s heavier wings and the addition of hinge capping helps to strengthen the glass. The gates are driven by a powerful magnetic direct drive motor.

Mr Bystram said the bullet-resistant EasyGate SPT was a premium option that would come with a higher price tag than the standard gate.
