Oldcastle Glass Announces California Department of Corrections Approval

Oldcastle Glass has announced that it has passed the necessary product testing and plant inspections to obtain approval from the California Department of Corrections (CDC).

The company's ArmorProtect™ Plus and ArmorResist™ Plus have passed the CDC's tests that include forced entry and ballistics testing. The approval makes Oldcastle Glass an approved supplier of glass for all areas of a detention facility, including cell windows, doors, day rooms and even control rooms, which require the highest level of forced entry and ballistic protection.

"This is exciting for us because passing the California Department of Corrections testing process is a testament to the quality of our security glazing products and manufacturing processes," said Pam Moser, security product manager at Oldcastle Glass. "In addition, we have two locations in California-Los Angeles and Fremont-that offer improved order lead times to satisfy replacement glass demand."
