Forced Entry Testing

Unlike most ballistic labs, OBL also offers Forced Entry and Ballistic Resistance (FE/BR) testing of hardened doors, windows, and other building products. Our dedicated FE/BR range is configured for flexibility and quick sample change out. It’s not uncommon for our skilled attack team to test multiple products in a single day.

OBL is certified by the US Department of State for testing to SD-STD-01,01 Rev. G, Forced Entry and Ballistic Resistance of Structural Systems.

OBL also performs the following FE/BR tests:

  • HPW-TP-0500.03 – Transparent Materials for Use in Forced Entry or Containment Barriers
  • ASTM F 1592 – Standard Test Methods for Detention Hollow Metal Vision Systems
  • ASTM F 1915 – Standard Test Methods for Glazing for Detention Facilities
