If you opt for level B security, you would be choosing glass that is ideal for homes of people with a high security risk, computer labs, jails, police, museums, jewelry stores, banks and other structures where there is a need for heightened protection. This kind of glass can withstand at least 70 hits of a sharp and machine driven 5 pound axe.
