A Security Vulnerability at Hotels and Motels: The Reception Desk
It should come as no surprise that the most serious point of vulnerability from a security perspective at most hotels and motels is the reception area of the lobby, often staffed 24/7 by a clerk who handles late-night check-ins of arriving guests and other tasks. The benefits of incorporating bulletproof window products include greater security, safety, and peace of mind for every worker who spends time in that area knowing bullet-resistant glass is protecting them from the threat of gun violence.
Bullet-Resistant Windows and Glass: An Introduction
The kind of protective barriers we most commonly make for any business or organization are various windows incorporating bullet-resistant glass. Because everyone uses the term bulletproof, we use it as well even though no window is fully bulletproof. There’s always a bigger gun with a bigger projectile that can get through it. But the vast majority of gun violence involves weapons such as a pistol or handgun, and sometimes a rifle. The way bulletproof glassworks is by creating a sandwich of a transparent layer of polycarbonate between two sheets of regular glass. Adding more layers creates a higher level of protection. Each bulletproof window we make is rated for a particular level of protection, which you can read more about on the Bulletproof and Bullet Resistant Glass page of our website.

Protecting Your Employees is Protecting Your Business
Hotels and motels are often open 24 hours a day, requiring staff to work late into the evening hours in isolation. Bullet-resistant windows allow those workers to remain securely behind glass to handle those guests arriving late at night without worry.
By offering this added level of security, a hospitality business can ease worker concerns about the night shift. This has traditionally been one of the most difficult shifts to staff, due in part to safety worries. With Creative Industries bullet-resistant windows, potential hires will see your business cares about its employees. This will not only make it easier to hire new employees but retain those employees once they begin work.
Employees are the most important asset for all hotels and motels. Keep them safe by choosing Creative Industries to provide bullet-resistant windows for hotels or motels. With solid construction and the promise of top-notch customer service, you’ll enjoy the many benefits of a safer, more secure environment for your business and each worker.
