Shatter Security Glass Window Film Protection, Tampa Bay, Orlando

The window film industry has been restricted from the mere mention of its potential use for wind storm mitigation.


Given the industry small footprint and the lack of appetite to argue the merits of properly fastened shatter films; we have removed all mention of storms from any advertising.

(Frankly we had done so as far back as 2009-10)

Interestingly commercial buildings (second story and above) typically require that a storm mitigation device meet the ASTM 1886 or ASTM 1996 cycling and small and medium missile impact that our 8 ML films meet.

This includes the stringent Factory Mutual testing approvals that can lower a commercial businesses insurance premiums.


We take no issue with the states concerns about misleading advertising or their implication that somehow the mere mention of these films is taking advantage of the elderly.


Our thicker shatter films manufactured by Eastman Chemical (LLumar- Vista) ,  Madico, Suntek, Armorcoat and Avery-Dennison Hanita meet Department of Defense and GSA Blast load requirements. Various versions meet the UL972 impact testing and all meet ANSI97 requirements for safety glazing.
