Bullet proof glass: A versatile customisable security solution

Bullet proof glass is a versatile security solution that can be used in a range of different scenarios.

The work commenced this September and will offer an elegant security solution, unobtrusive to the experience of the visitors. Sites such as government buildings, embassies and even businesses in high-  ...read more

Cars will be stopped before hitting the curb, preventing incidents like the one at Greenacre School in Sydney this Novem  ...read more
