Storms, earthquakes, chemical explosions, bomb blasts, overhead/sloped glazing, theft, and vandalism are all risks that our SafetyShield films can help to mitigate. The addition of Madico’s SafetyShield films and our Anchoring Restraint Systems dramatically improves security for all buildings. It’s 24/7 passive protection that you can rely on the instant a threat occurs.

While our products certainly can’t prevent crime or natural disasters from taking place, they can dramatically affect the outcome of these events. When windows give way, shards of glass and debris can cause severe danger and damage. In fact, a single square foot of glass can produce up to 200 deadly, razor-sharp fragments. Flying glass shards are a major cause of severe injury, and even death. Blown out windows also expose your building’s interior to vandals, water, wind and other perils. SafetyShield protective film provides a “shield” on windows which reduces the risk of glass breakage.

Anchoring Systems

There are five 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 film, to meet your specific criteria and threat concern.

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 Madico SafetyShield 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 catch 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 SafetyShield 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.
