Bullet Resistant Acrylic Sheet for Bank Teller Line
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
Cutting and polishing 10" speaker holes was my part of this project. Funny that this is my bank one half mile away from my shop.
They let us in after 5:00pm, and we had one night to finish.
Lucky no tools broke, and we got out of there at a decent hour.
1.25" thick, clear BR (bullet resistant acrylic) is a slightly different resin composition.
I am not sure of the details, but the medium power firearms manufacturer guarantee does not apply to regular 1.25" clear acrylic sheets. Honesly, I can't tell the difference in appearance or when working with it. It is used a lot at gas stations and convienence stores too. I am sure you have seen it. For some reason super thick glass is not practical or effective, and is hardly ever used. Too bad, because glass scratches less.
Cyro bullet resistant sheet, is the brand I see most of the time from local plastics distributors.
