Test Data for ACCESSGARDTM and ACCESSGARDTM-2118 Security Glass

TEST SEQUENCE TEST IMPLEMENTS # OF IMPACTS SEQUENCE TIME (SECONDS) CLASS ACHIEVED NOTES
1 Ball-Peen Hammer 10 22 1.0 One technician delivered 10 impacts with a Ball-Peen Hammer, no penetration or openings were created.
2 Ball-Peen Hammer 10 24 1.1 A second technician delivered 10 additional impacts with a Ball-Peen Hammer, no penetration or openings were created.
3 1 1/2″ Diameter Pipe / 12-lb Sledge 25 174 1.2 One technician held the pipe while one technician swung a 12-lb Sledge Hammer. The pipe was held at different angles to evaluate the resistance of the sample to both puncture and gouging.
4 Extinguisher, CO2 NA 60 1.3 Extinguisher fully discharged for 60 seconds. This step is designed to freeze the materials, mimicking cold weather and making the components more brittle for subsequent attack. Other products in the market avoid this step.
5 Sledge Hammer 25 44 1.4

ACCESSGARD:
Immediately after discharging the extinguisher in Test Sequence 4, 19 impacts were delivered to the sample utilizing a Sledge Hammer. Testing was terminated after the 19th impact as the opening created in the sample allowed Body Passage per IAW ASTM F1233-08 Section 10.2.4.2.

ACCESSGARD-2118:
Immediately after discharging the extinguisher in Test Sequence 4, 25 impacts were delivered to the sample utilizing a Sledge Hammer.

6 Propane Flame Torch 300 1.5 ACCESSGARD-2118:
The propane torch was used IAW ASTM F1233-08, Section A1.5.2. The flame was continuously applied and was held such that the blue tip of the torch flame was no further than 1-in from the surface of the sample. The flame was initially held at the location of the hole that allowed the 1/8-in contraband rod to pass through at the completion of Sequence 5. The sample material began to melt and the torch flame was used to enlarge the opening. At the conclusion of this sequence, a fine mist of water was used to extinguish the still-burning material. The Forced-Entry Shape was able to pass through the hole created during this sequence.
