Bullet Resistance

What is Bullet Resistance?

Bullet Resistant door & frame assemblies are designed to protect personnel and property from fire arms.

Bullet resistant doors are often used in government buildings, cashier stands, high crime areas, or any structure where increased safety is desired. They are generally tested in accordance with UL 752 and assigned a level from 1-10 that defines how resistant the door is to gunfire.

Steel doors are typically available up to level 8. A security consultant should analyze the building conditions to determine the appropriate bullet resistance level required.

Not all UL 752 Ratings are linear

When you think of a ratings system, you normally assume that the numbers correspond to the level of protection or benefit that is offered. Level 1 would be the lowest, level 2 would be the next in line, and so on. But that’s not the case for all UL 752 ratings.

Each level requires the material to withstand impact from a specific type of ballistic impact.
