Specialty Films
Window Film Products

Building Safety and Security into your windows: There are times when the world is a dangerous place. Hurricanes, tornadoes, severe winds, bomb blasts and even earthquakes can cause glass to shatter and send shards flying. Children safety/Sound CommercialDuring these disasters Safety and Security Window Films help keep flying glass from harming inhabitants.

New Technology: A tough, new dimension in window film technology for property and personal protection against crime, violent weather and accidents. Today, protecting yourself and your property is more important than ever. The latest FBI statistics show robberies and burglaries are up 10%. And property damage due to earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and other violent weather is up an average of 39% over the past nine years.

steeled glass Glass Protection

Our new safety and security film is a tough, durable, tear and penetration-resistant shield that bonds to the inside of your windows for protection. The film helps hold the glass together to dramatically reduce the chance
of glass shards from falling or flying out even under direct forces from winds or impacts from flying objects or breaking and entering.

GSA requirement:
One measure under consideration by the GSA is a requirement that security film be applied to windows in certain buildings to reduce the problem of flying glass shards, a dangerous and sometimes fatal occurrence in buildings near explosions. For example, following the 1996 terrorist bombing that killed 19 U.S. airmen in Saudi Arabia, a Pentagon report found that 12 of those airmen died as a result of glass-cut injuries. More than 90 percent of the injuries suffered in that attack involved significant lacerations, and glass was shattered more than 1,200 feet from the explosion.

Glass mitigation retention films can reduce explosion-related glass injuries
"Among the key test findings were those indicating that windows covered with 3M Scotchshield Ultra 400 film and new Scotchshield Ultra 600 film would offer significant protection from flying glass during explosions."

Glass Mitigation Retention window films are available from clear to dark tinted.

Blast Testing: Results of bomb blast testing, detailed in a report released in June 1998 by 3M, indicate that its security window film explosionsystems can significantly reduce injuries caused by flying glass in explosions. The results have implications that could affect security measures now under discussion by government and business officials working to minimize injuries from terrorist attacks.

Blast Report: The report was prepared by Applied Research Associates (ARA), a national blast consulting firm. 3M hired the independent firm to evaluate new 3M security window film systems, using performance standards established in 1997 by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), in response to President Clinton's directive to increase security at government buildings following the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Test results: The ARA tests for 3M were conducted in January 1998 at the Defense Special Weapons Agency's Chestnut Test Site, Kirkland Air Force Base, New Mexico. "We concentrated the tests on new systems that might offer hazard mitigation for GSA buildings with Level D and C security classifications, the second- and third-highest security levels, which apply to hundreds of buildings in the United States," said James Mannix, market development supervisor for 3M Specified Construction Products Department. (Level E GSA buildings, requiring the highest security, were not included in the GSA security standards.)Test result

In a series of six tests, windows with various combinations of film and attachment systems were subjected to blasts equivalent to 500 pounds of TNT. ARA’s test report concluded that all 3M film products tested provided significant reduction in glass fragment hazards when compared to unprotected windows. The report also concluded that both the aluminum batten and wet glazed sealant - two of the attachment systems tested - provided an adequate attachment of the films to typical aluminum frames. Most important, the report concluded the majority of configurations tested qualify for GSA Level C buildings and several qualify for Level D buildings, meeting "high" to "very high" protection levels.

Of the 22 combinations of 3M window film products and attachment systems tested by ARA, 19 tested high to very high in the GSA protection criteria, providing a significant mitigation of glass fragment hazards under the tested conditions. "The tested pressure and impulse levels indicate that 3M film products are an appropriate and viable technology for consideration in meeting GSA’s glazing protection requirements," said Joseph Smith, director of security engineering for ARA.

Among the key test findings were those indicating that windows covered with 3M Scotchshield Ultra 400 film and new Scotchshield Ultra 600 film would offer significant protection from flying glass during explosions. "Some of the best results were obtained from the new 3M Ultraflex sealant system, based on new proprietary technology combining a stronger, yet thinner and thus more flexible film with a silicone sealant," Mannix said. "These Scotchshield Ultra films offer greater tear and penetration resistance, and the tests validate our experience that thickness is no substitute for technology. Increasing the flexibility of a sealant system increases its ability to hold glass in the frame after an explosion."
