Anchoring System

There are different patented and proprietary Anchoring Restraint System solutions available – each with its own level of performance. Metro Tint will work with you to select the appropriate Anchoring Restraint System, in conjunction with the application of our safety/security film, to meet your specific criteria and threat concern.

3M™ Impact Protection Adhesive improves the overall performance of 3M Safety and Security Window Films. This unique window protection system combines the toughness of 3M’s patented micro-layer safety film with 3M’s world-class expertise in adhesives to help shield against impact energy from severe weather, earthquakes, bomb blasts or forced entry events. The 3M Impact Protection System also helps protect against personal injury from flying glass.

The FrameGard Anchoring System has been specifically engineered to keep treated glass within the frame when an incident has occurred. It is a “mechanical” attachment system that clamps the filmed glass to the window frame. This system improves and extends the principle of edge battening by incorporating a specific movement zone (patent applies) which allows the film to move under applied load without putting excessive force onto the fixings and fame. The benefit of FrameGard is that it allows engineers and installers to precisely determine torque settings for each individual installation, creating a truly custom solution.

The GullWing Anchoring System, when combined with security window film, is designed to absorb and disburse the energy that the filmed glass is subjected to and transfer the reduced load over the entire glazed opening. By absorbing and distributing the load, the system is designed to retain the filmed glass in the opening and thus reduce the probability of glass fragments and debris from entering the room.

The LifeLine® Anchoring System is based on a simple principle, “restraint.” This System is one of the most effective ways to mitigate injury and reduce property damage in the event of a catastrophic blast. The LifeLine System works in conjunction with a standard application of security film. The system’s energy absorbing cords slow down and catches the filmed lite of glass, often returning it to the direction in which it came. This straight-forward system has been blast tested up to 10 psi. Due to its somewhat industrial appearance, LifeLine is primarily used in factory or manufacturing applications.

The Wet Glaze Anchoring System, when combined with security window film, is designed to absorb and disburse the energy that the filmed glass is subjected to and transfer the reduced load over the entire glazed opening. By absorbing and distributing the load, the system is designed to retain the filmed glass in the opening and thus reduce the probability of glass fragments and debris from entering the room. The Wet Glaze system is economically viable in retrofit applications and is built around a triangular sealant joint connecting the film to the supporting framing members. To achieve acceptable performance, a very high-performance sealant must be used. We recommend Dow Corning® 995 Silicone Structural Adhesive.
