About Protective Armored Systems (PAS)
is an industry leader in glass and polymer lamination specializing
in bullet-resistant and security glazing for the government,
military, institutional and commercial market segments. PAS
custom-develops systems for a variety of ballistic, forced-entry
and impact-resistant applications, including automobiles,
aircraft, boats, prisons, guardhouses, courthouses, law enforcement
facilitators and retail stores. Glass Laminate and Glass Clad
Transparency barriers can be shaped to fit OEM specs for windshields
and other curved surfaces. When PAS develops a glass barrier
system, visibility is never compromised for safety. PAS has
found innovative ways, ranging from chemical treatments, to
advanced materials, to combine visual product clarity with
superior attack and ballistic protection. And because spalling
- the spray of glass fragments into a vehicle at impact -
can be as damaging as the threat the glass stopped, PAS offers
a full line of "low-spall" and "no-spall"
barriers for many applications. With its manufacturing facility
located in Lee, Massachusetts, the long list of PAS clients
includes government installations, the banking industry, and
a host of commercial market segment clients. PAS manufactures
extremely durable and lightweight transparent armor that is
made available either in flat sheets, or curved and cut to
fit specific application requirements. Combining the hard
surface of glass with the resilient toughness of polycarbonate,
PAS Glass Clad systems are specially designed to defeat threats
from high-powered firearms with low-spall or no- spall performance
that meet NIJ and UL standards for bullet-resistant applications.
Whether supplied flat or curved for a specific application,
PAS Laminated Glass offers the durability of traditional bullet-resistant
glazing that meet NIJ and UL standards for bullet-resistant
applications. PAS Security Glass Clad Laminates provide long-lasting
protection against moderate ballistic and forced entry threats.
The durability and versatility of these laminates make them
a perfect choice for correctional facilities, courthouses,
and government building and corporate security applications.
By altering thickness and composition (adding layers of glass
or polycarbonate) PAS Security Glass Clad Laminates can be
customized to specific threat level requirements. PAS Laminated
Polycarbonate sheets provide protection against multi-shot
penetration as well as forced entry attempts. With an abrasion
resistant coating on both sides of the unit, protection is
also provided against the passage of fragments (spalling)
that could cause injury to anyone standing behind and/or near
the protective sheet. PAS Laminated Polycarbonate sheets offer
adequate protection, excellent optical clarity and typically
weigh less than other bullet-resistant materials. PAS Laminated
Polycarbonate sheets can also be cut to custom sizes to accommodate
installation or can be provided in standard sheet sizes.
