Page Count: 342
scope:

This handbook is to be used during the engineering design of Department of Defense (DOD) facilities to ensure that engineers and security personnel select the appropriate glazing systems to optimize performance and cost. The guidelines are based on the best currently available research and test data, and will be revised or expanded as additional research results and funding become available. The contents include procedures for planning and selecting glazing systems for new facilities as well as evaluating existing facilities.

The focus of this handbook is on balancing cost, protection, and design constraints in selecting systems to protect against ballistic, bomb, and forced entry tactics. Glazing provides an alternative to bars and grills in security applications, that require protection against ballistic and bomb attacks in addition to forced entry attack.

In a work environment, windows are typically used to augment lighting and ventilation. Thus, they are more common in buildings with high concentrations of people than in facilities for storing materials or housing equipment. This handbook assumes that designers will avoid windows in secure facilities where they are not a necessity for personnel because it is cost-effective to do so.
