Armortex® is the original manufacturer of UL Listed Bullet Resistant Fiberglass Panels. This material is manufactured using a woven roving ballistic grade cloth we manufacture in-house. The cloth is mechanically injected with resin and placed in a hydraulic hot press, then pressed into flat rigid panels that come in 3² and 4' widths and 8', 9' and 10' lengths. By using an anti-ballistic grade fiber in our panels, we can maximize our ballistic performance by consistently achieving a uniform resin to fiber ratio. This allows the proper ply delamination to encapture projectiles.
Custom sizes of selected products available.
