Xtreme Defence Security (XDS) has launched a range of security products in the region that will help secure cars and buildings ing the Middle East. The company, which has just opened an office in the Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFS), is expecting to find particular interest in its bulletproof glass.

The XDS System strengthens glass through the use of an adhesive film, which is applied to the inside of existing windows. This then strengthens the glass by up to 400%, enough to stop bullets or to prevent glass from shattering in the event of an explosion.

XDS is already used in a number of notable locations including the US Capitol Building and the US Supreme Court, as well as a large number of US airports. It is also being implemented at Singapore Airport and in Pakistani airports.

“The limitation of everyday glass is that it breaks. Glass is the weakest aspect in the safety of any building or vehicle in terms of protecting lives and property. The primary function of this product is to strengthen the glass first, then keep it intact in its frame, if broken. It is a proven fact that the XDS System can reduce damage and injury by up to 80%,” says Khurrum Hamirani, director of XDS.
