The Kalashnikov ammunition-resistant glass solution to provide the protection you need!

ammunition resistant glass
Since the emergence of the terrorist threat in past years, the Kalashnikov assault rifle has drawn particular attention. However, the characteristics of its ammunition have not yet been incorporated into European ballistic resistance standards. Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is going still further in its quest to develop solutions for the most high-risk environments to fill gaps of actual European standards.

As a large player in the international glass industry, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain designed to meet the requirements of high-security sites (government organisations, train stations, schools, shopping centers, banks, museums, hospitals, public police or military establishments, etc.), the DarTek IA-K47 range developed by Fichet Group and which has been fully certified by an independent laboratory.

Kalashnikov stays one of the most widespread weapon across the planet. VETROGARD and POLYGARD Kalashnikov* are two ranges of glass solutions specially designed and tested to withstand the impact of a 7.62 x 39 cartridge iron core Kalashnikov ammunition. These solutions meet our mission to protect people and their property.

Thanks to our partnership with the Fichet Group, we've been able to launch a unique offering onto the market featuring panes with certified resistance, while at the same time complying with regulations on emergency evacuation and access for people.

In the context of the global Milipol Fair for safety and homeland security held in Paris in October 2021, the collaboration between Fichet and Vetrotech allowed our experts to promote once again these complete solutions for an absolute protection.
