Our independent, rigorous testing process helps ensure that your products align with applicable requirements and expectations to create an affordable solution for customers.
Filti Testing and Development created the Shooter Attack Test in response to the active shooter attacks we have seen time and time again. We not only listened to the experts in the security world but we also met with numerous successful door and glass companies across the world. The goal is to slow down attackers, giving the people inside more time to react, and emergency response teams more time to arrive at the scene and defuse the situation.
We specialize in the following industries:
OUR RIGOROUS TESTING PROCESS
In the Filti Shooter Attack Test, the glass is shot 10 times with an AR15 .223 round. After being shot, the glass is struck with a 100 lbs. ram minimally two (2) times at 50-foot pounds of force by the ram and must stay together. If the ram penetrates the glass before the completion of the two hits, it is considered a failure. This test is completed by Filti and observed by UL.
Other companies have utilized timed tests where they throw bricks or hit the glass with hammers or other objects. This is not ideal as these objects are not commonly used in an active shooter scenario. The other major concern is that there is no measurable amount of force being used after it has been shot. This can cause a false sense of security and open the customer to liability if an attacker gets through in less time than tested.
