Glass manufacturer Schott’s been having a blast lately testing the damage resistance capabilities of its laminated glass products in attack conditions. The firm exposed its Pyranova Secure and Novolay Secure to a dual fire test and bullet attack, independently monitored by the Bombardment Office of Ulm. Pyranova glass meets fire and bullet resistance DIN standards, useful for any building that could be targeted.
