Andrew Haring shares fun and reality of testing ballistic glass

NGA‘s own Andrew Haring, vice president of business development, had a good time testing ballistic glass in Texas, while at the same time amplifying the message that our schools need bullet-resistant glazing.

With reps from NGA member Quikserv, Inc. / United States Bullet Proofing, Haring conducted unofficial testing (to ASTM standards) on UL 752 level 1 and level 8 ballistic glass, courtesy of NGA member Standard Bent Glass / SBG Defense. Texas Glass Association (an affiliated Chapter of NGA) member Sharp Glass fabricated the frame using NGA member Kawneer Company, Inc. sticks.

“Yes, it was fun. More importantly, we’re leveraging this opportunity to … bring attention to the need for bullet-resistant glazing in our schools,” said Haring in his LinkedIn post. “We adamantly endorse [congressional bill] H.R. 887: Securing Our Students Act, allocating additional funds to schools for bullet‐resistant doors and windows … that meet, at a minimum, the new ASTM standard on active shooter attack.”
