Unfortunately we live in a world where bomb blast is a real danger to our safety and security. A bomb blast turns unprotected glass into dangerous flying shards.

During a blast, glazing will break causing serious injuries. Blast pressures can carry broken glass at speeds in excess of 100 feet per second (68 MPH).
With Armorcoat safety film, applied to your existing glazing, we can help you drastically increase your level of protection and save lives.
Solar Gard Armorcoat safety film helps to reduce the risks of flying glass that can cause severe injuries or death during an accidental explosion or terrorist attack. Armorcoat creates a protective barrier protecting the people inside of targeted and surrounding buildings from the effects of a blast.
