Vehicle Safety Glass offers protection from: Anti-theft, anti-riot, anti-physical assault, ballistic protection, and discreet protection. LTA Glass is directly interchangeable, with your existing vehicle’s glass. LTA glass is glass impact break resistant, and offers improved vehicle safety.
Lightweight Transparent Armor is useful for: physical assault, ballistic protection, and discreet protection. Glasses are directly interchangeable, impact break resistant, and offer improved safety.
Anti-Theft – Defeats penetration by common hand-held threats such as a center punch, tire iron, ball peen hammer, etc.
Anti- Riot – Disallows penetration of thrown objects from vandalism and riot situations including rocks, bricks, bottles, cinder blocks, molotov cocktails, etc.
Anti-Physical Assault – Resists forced entry and prolonged attack from hammers, hatchets, baseball bats, sledge hammers pick ax, etc.
Ballistic Protection – from small powered hand and shotgun rounds. [13mm]
Discreet Protection – looks like normal automotive glass and does not call attention to its capabilities.
Directly Interchangeable – with OEM auto glass without vehicle modification.
Improved Safety – LTA is anti-lacerative and eliminates dangerous flying glass fragments when exterior glass is broken.
Impact Break Resistant – The energy absorption characteristics of the added polycarbonate and interlayers greatly increase the breakage resistance of the OEM glass.
Vehicle glass has always been the weakest link when it comes to protecting any passenger vehicle.
All automotive side and rear glass safety standards are set by the Federal Government. These standards call for all side and rear glass to, when broken, not break into shards that have dangerously sharp edges that can injure passengers. Standards call for tempered glass to be used for side and rear windows. Tempered glass is plate glass that has been heated to a high temperature and then quenched quickly in oil. Tempered glass breaks into small round pebbles with no sharp edges, However this does not provide any protection for the vehicle occupants except from the weather!
LTA Glass is standard 5/32 auto glass backed with thin layers of polycarbonate that are bonded to the inside of the vehicle glass with polyurethane bonding interlayers. LTA offers anti-penetration protection: the impact/break resistant LTA resists forced entry and prolonged attacks from hammers, hatchets, baseball bats, pipes, sledge hammers, pick ax, and also offers protection from thrown objects such as rocks, bricks, bottles, cinder blocks, molotov cocktails, etc., as well as protection from theft!
LTA comes in two levels of protection: 6 mm (anti-penetration; “smash & grab” protection) and LTA 13mm. LTA 13 mm provides all of the above protection but with the addition of protection from small powered hand and shotgun rounds.
