Security Window & Door Frames

Protect your organisation against ballistic attack

In the past, there was minimal risk of ballistic attacks in Australia. So, at the time, companies could easily offer cheap window products without worrying about security issues. But times have changed, and today’s population is more vigilant than ever. It’s now a matter of ‘when’ these attacks happen rather than ‘if’ they will.

SFAB Engineering answers the needs of the changing world by providing steel door and window frame fabrication services in the Gold Coast and south east Queensland. Let’s discuss your security needs today.

Why choose security doors and windows by SFAB Engineering?

SFAB Engineering has over 10 years of experience in the high security joinery trade. We are knowledgeable in the customisation of security doors and windows. We can guarantee that our products meet your security risk.

We offer Blast Proof & fire rated windows and doors up to 120/120 fire rating. Combination glazed security doors and windows are our specialisation. Our steel door and window frame fabrication team ensure a balance of high security, natural light and clear vision. We provide high-light and side-light window options. You can also choose the steel and glass thickness of your custom-made products. 

We don’t cut corners in the quality of our work. More importantly, we stand by the guarantee of our job. Our bulletproof window frames and door frames are tested to the American standard NIJ 0108.01 which is higher than the AS/NZ 2343. As a result, you can rest assured that our products protect you and your property.

When do bulletproof windows become necessary?

Bulletproof windows are ideal when there is a prevalent threat of ballistic attacks. If your property is in extreme risk and you need heightened protection, we provide glass windows with G2 up to R2 bullet resistance.
Our bulletproof glass windows feature custom-made steel window frames that can easily resist the sharp force of projectiles. Our bullet-resistant glass materials encapsulate high-velocity projectiles and prevent them from going through the window. We recommend these products for places that handle large amounts of cash on a daily basis. We also suggest it for places that deal with highly classified data and heavily guarded personnel.

Locations that might need bulletproof windows include:

  • Banks
  • Casinos
  • Court houses
  • Data centres
  • Guard booths


  • Embassies
  • Petrol Stations
  • Police stations
  • Prison visiting quarters
  • Ticketing booths
At SFAB Engineering, we strive to provide the utmost safety and security. We custom-make each steel window and door frame to stand against the increasing threats of the ever-changing community. These products exceed Australian test standards and are aligned with US standards of security window and door frame systems.

Is there an alternative to bulletproof windows?

Ballistic attacks aren’t the only threats out there. Physical attacks are also increasingly prevalent. So, SFAB Engineering provides intruder-resistant steel window frames and door frames for maximum protection.
The Anti-Bandit Glass is suitable for properties that are at low to medium security risk. This type of glass is made of two to three plies of glass with a plastic interlayer. It’s designed to protect against the force of hand tools. The layers of glass increase the time and effort that burglars and other criminals put in when they’re trying to break in or escape. We pair the glass with steel window frames that provide superior strength. Our Anti-Bandit Glass windows are ideal for places with a heightened risk of smash-and-grab incidents:

  • Airport security areas
  • Detention centres
  • Jewellery stores
  • Liquor stores
  • Luxury homes
  • Petrol Stations
  • Police stations
  • Pharmacies
  • Sports shops
These windows are also suitable for any home, building or establishment with perceived high-value items.

Frequently Asked Questions

No in most cases you can’t. This is due to the thickness of the bullet proof glass and that the frame must be bullet proof as well. This also means the wall must be bullet proof as well. SFAB Engineering can help you with all aspects of this. 

Using clear glass does provide clear visibility but due to the thickness of glass there is a green tinge present unless you opt for Low Iron glass as an extra. 

Bulletproof glass is designed to prevent bullets from penetrating the windows. So, there will always be the likelihood of cracks even if the glass is tested to prevent penetration.

All our bulletproof window and door frames meet US standards. Each product is custom-made to match the security risk at your property. We discuss this with you before fabrication.

Your security detail can only do so much when there is a heightened risk of ballistic attacks. Bulletproof windows are an added layer of protection for your peace of mind.
