Eight distinct “levels” of bullet resistance are established ranging from a small .38 handgun (Level I) through to a 762 high powered military assault rifle (Level VIII). When selecting an Ambico bullet resistant door and frame do so with reference to the anticipated threat – please refer to Table One.
