At 1.25" thick, these clear acrylic sheets resist meduim power gun fire.The premium "domestic" sheet grade is normally requested. It is slightly thicker than the "import" grade of the same nominal thickness. And the certified BR, or bullet resistant grade is made from a specially formulated resin.

Here is a project for the offcuts too small to be used as security windows. I know, these bulky, desk nameplates went out of style in the 70's. But the combination of vinyl lettering and spray paint on the back, is pretty slick. They have the weight feel and look of real glass. Have a lettering shop cut the ready-to-apply name, "reverse cut", so it is sticky on the front. Select lots of contrast between lettering and backround colors. The clear and white (top) one is not vinyl lettering, but laser engraved. Up close you can see the hatch marks that fill in the voids of the letters. I feel the texture enhances it.
