Tyneside Safety Glass are proud of its history in supporting the needs of the Public Emergency Services which has been necessary due to the increased threats and hostilities faced throughout the world against both employees and property.
We have developed and tested a full range of specialist glass products which protect against both non ballistic physical threat and ballistic threat levels and provide a discreet yet high level of protection. These products range from toughened and laminated glass in either flat or curved forms to increased levels of protective glass which include bespoke anti bandit laminated constructions to resist against physical attack for use in automotive and architectural applications.
To offer further protection our anti bandit constructions can also incorporate a low spall option which reduces the fragments of glass ejected from the rear of the glass upon impact and our Technical team can also advise on and apply specialist films which can be applied to offer a zero spall option.
When faced with the potential of ballistic attack Tyneside can offer a full range of flat and curved bullet resistant glass in either an all glass or a glass/polycarbonate construction which offers additional benefits of reduced weight, thickness and zero spall.
Our products are used widely in such applications as police vehicles, fire tenders, ambulances and riot protection vehicles and are tested in our in house testing facility and ballistic firing range which is then supported by external testing accreditation.
