SECURITY IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD
Republic offers up to eight levels of bullet resistant door and frame protection, ranging from 9 mm handguns (Level 1) up to 7.62 mm military assault rifles (Level 8). All bullet resistant doors are tested and labeled in accordance with UL752 and constructed per SDI Level 4. They also come standard with polystyrene or mineral wool core for interior or exterior applications. These assemblies are designed for installations such as public utility and military buildings, cashier islands and currency exchanges, cellular tower units and any other security location requiring bullet resistance.
Protection levels per UL752
Republic’s bullet resistant systems offer various levels of protection defined by UL752 standard ratings. Each of the 8 leveled corresponding products have been tested and found effective at stopping a variety of projectiles, especially ones most typically used during an armed robbery. Although the UL752 ratings extend to Level 8, most banks, credit unions, and convenience stores are typically protected in Levels 1-3.
- DE-BR doors include two bullet resistant cores and are available over different levels of performance. Our Polystyrene core provides Level 1 & Level 6 resistance, while our Polystyrene with armour plating provides Levels 2-8 resistance
- ME-BR frames include layers of bullet plating required for specific levels of resistance
- Doors and frames are tested and labeled in accordance with UL752, performed by Intertek Testing Services
- With these types of high security openings, security is only as good as the weakest link. For this reason, Republic recommends that the adjacent walls provide the same level of bullet resistance as Republic’s bullet resistant system
Assemblies are designed for installations such as public utility and military buildings, cashier islands and currency exchanges, cellular tower units and any other security location requiring bullet resistance.
