Be Aware. Not All Polycarbonate Is Created Equal.
Our window is a UL752 rated Level 1, ¾” polycarbonate. To receive this rating the polycarbonate must be able to withstand a ballistic attack from a 124 grain, 9mm FMJ lead core projectile with a 4” shot spacing from 15 feet. This rating surpasses current standards in the Unites States.
(Note: This does not mean it is bullet proof. There is no such thing as bullet proof polycarbonate).
Most polycarbonate protective structures on heavy equipment in the US market today, are only rated to withstand heavy impact. Most have been drilled or milled in order to install door handles, hinges, wiper blades and other fixtures. This process can weaken the polycarbonate by exposing it to micro fractures. Our windows are not drilled or milled. They are within a steel frame, customized to mount to the machine using factory mounting location.
