With Window Film, Glass Won’t Shatter on Impact

During the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks as well as the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, numerous deaths and injuries resulted from shattered window glass that flew from the structures. To help protect people and property, BlastGard adheres to interior side of windows, providing an invisible coat of armor that won’t alter windows’ appearance. Strengthens glass to resist small ballistic attacks. In the event of a major explosion or bomb blast, the film holds razor-sharp glass fragments together within window frame to prevent glass shards from flying into the air. Also comes in thicknesses to resist hurricane-force winds.

Made of polyester, the film is installed on windowpanes by certified technicians. Cures in about 30 days to reach full strength. Available in clear version that filters up to 98T of harmful UV radiation to protect building interiors and sensitive equipment. Also comes in tinted versions to reduce glare and heat infiltration by 70%. Both versions resist scratches and facing. Meet GSA standards for window-fragmentation retention film, plus cost about 70% less than traditional ballistic glass. In addition, product line includes impact-resistant film for vehicle windows.
