On August 12, 2019 San Antonio law enforcement responded to shots fired toward the windows of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office. The Washington Examiner reported that the building did not have bulletproof windows and that at least one shot penetrated a window.
Attacks like this underline the importance of ensuring that building occupants are protected in the event of a shooting or bombing. Windows are the most vulnerable part of a building’s envelope. Upgrading its windows with an interior bullet resistant or blast resistant window retrofit is the most affordable and effective way to modernize the physical security of a building.
Thermolite bullet and blast resistant window retrofits install easily on the interior of the existing window. No scaffolding, permits or special tools are required, making the installation simple and nonintrusive. Contact Thermolite today to learn more about improving the physical security of your building with a bullet or blast resistant window retrofit.
