Merges Security with Style
Security and safety were at the top of the list for a newly transformed police headquarters in Belleville, Illinois. The attractive three-story, 45,000-square-foot police headquarters provides the department with safety, style and plenty of natural light, bringing new life to what was originally a bank building.
For safety without unsightly security screens, shutters and barriers, Winco found an innovative solution. They installed bullet-resistant polycarbonate windows behind the exterior glass, which improved security, saved money and continued to allow natural light to flow inward. The 2 to 4-1/2 inch frames and energy-efficient glass systems can help withstand forced entry by intruders, stray bullets, and storm damage, allowing the facility to stay functional following any man-made or weather threats.
Designed to Federal Emergency Management Agency standards, the dispatch area stays in operation during an emergency while the sally port provides safe shelter for prisoners and employees.
Winco offers a wide range of high-performance products, protective products for blast, ballistics and forced entry resistance and hurricane and tornado protection. Blast windows have been successfully blast tested using live explosives replicating up to 3,000 lbs. of TNT at 160 ft. They're also fortified to provide outstanding protection from noise, wind and water infiltration, and offer energy-saving thermal ratings.
