Assault Resistance
Confirm your products keep people safe from all manner of external threats, such as potential terrorist activity and other acts of violence.

Ballistic Testing
Determine the level of bullet resistance of your glazing, windows, or doors using our indoor ballistic range and 10 interchangeable barrels.

Blast Testing
Protect against flying and falling glass and related shrapnel. Since 75% of damage and injury from a blast is due to airborne debris, building codes continue to require higher levels of blast resistance.

Forced Entry
Demonstrate your products ability to withstand simulated breaking and entering. The Concentrated Assault Test is conducted by a team of 6 men using various tools in an attempt to penetrate your system.
