Norplex-Micarta (Postville, Iowa) has developed BRASS, a Class 1-A fire-rated projectile-resistant fiberglass building material. Lighter than steel, ricochet-resistant and readily machined with ordinary hand tools, the material is a suitable reinforcing substrate for bullet-resistant architecture and building projects. The glass laminate is reportedly easy to install: it cuts with ordinary, circular, table or panel saws; can be adhered readily to decorative plastic laminates with basic hand tools and adhesives; and can be surfaced on site with veneer, drywall, wallpaper or other wall covering. norplex-micarta.gocomp.biz/4
