Designed to stand up to bullets, blasts, blunt force and architectural scrutiny.

For more than 40 years, Norshield has stood in resolute defiance between nefarious threats and people, national secrets and critical infrastructure. That task has required tremendous foresight and flexibility. Along the way, our organization and our products have evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of customers in government and civilian settings alike, where the need for protection stretches beyond ballistics and forced entry. Aesthetics, thermal performance and value will always be hallmarks of every product Norshield produces.


Aluminum frame construction. Steel had dominated the security fenestration segment for decades when Norshield first lobbied for the design flexibility, ease of finish and thermal performance of Aluminum. Norshield broke the standard and proceeded to create a new one.


Countless trim options. Debunking the bunker aesthetic requires sophistication, nuance and flexibility. Norshield ushered in the idea of high design in a security window more than 20 years ago, and we’re still leading the way; custom profiles and finishes are just part of the game.


Custom glass options. From bullets, blasts, brute force and the insidious attacks of the sun, Norshield designs laminated glazing options that stand up to the worst and continue to look their best. We’ll work with you to engineer, test and certify the level of performance that best meets your needs. From small arms to bomb threats, Norshield has you covered.


Thermal Break. Norshield’s proprietary thermal break profiles stop thermal conductivity in its tracks, making your next project more sustainable and a more comfortable place for people. Our long history of involvement in LEED-certified projects is a testament to our commitment to performance.
