What Makes Riot Glass So Special?
Riot Glass is nearly identical to regular glass in terms of appearance, but that is where the similarity ends. Riot Glass is different than traditional glass security options on the market, such as window films and tempered glass.
These methods will often only delay a determined intruder, leaving you with an expensive replacement bill on top of the loss of your merchandise, or worse.

Riot Glass: How It Works
What does it do? Riot Glass stops break-in attempts using sledgehammers, crowbars, knives, pickaxes, bricks, blocks, bats, and more – in short, it stops rioters and looters from getting in.
Does it really work? Riot Glass has proven more effective than any other forced entry protection system including boarding, roll-down gates, and security window film.
Constructed of polycarbonate sheets, Riot Glass is abrasion and UV ray resistant to help extend the life of the panes. Panels can be installed over existing window glass in many cases.
Thanks to its extreme durability, even the lowest level of Riot Glass offers an incomparable level of security, making them bullet-resistant. The glass is also relatively easy to clean and maintain, giving your property decades of security and peace of mind.
When choosing Riot Glass, a threat assessment consultant will be able to help you determine the best installation options for you.
Riot Glass vs Security Film
What are the differences between Riot Glass and regular safety or security film? Put simply, Riot Glass is a stronger level of protection than security film.
- Security film is attached to the window vs Riot Glass is attached on top of your windows and doors.
- Security film is made from layers of film vs Riot Glass, which is made from strong polycarbonate sheets.
- Security film may deter entry for 1-2 minutes vs Riot Glass, which is designed to prevent entry completely.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it really look just like my existing window glass?
All Riot Glass products are available in 100% transparent options. If you install the thickest panels available, the visual sharpness of the glass may be slightly affected. Still, the difference is so minimal that you are unlikely to notice a change.
Is it difficult to clean Riot Glass?
You can use the same cleaning methods on Riot Glass products that you would use to clean regular glass. In fact, Riot Glass products have a protective coating that makes them more resistant to scratching and marring, so they can withstand even the most rigorous cleanings.
Can I keep my lettering and graphics?
That depends on the particular product and where the signage is displayed. A Riot Glass security consultant can advise you further during an onsite inspection. Contact us today for more information on Riot Glass or to schedule a consultation and receive an estimate.
