Safety & Seciruty Film
During hurricanes, when high-powered winds are allowed to enter a structure, they can collapse it from the inside. By preventing the glass from shattering, Madico's SafetyShield film not only prevents potential physical harm, but also keeps winds from rushing inside and doing serious structural damage. And during an earthquake, SafetyShield holds glass together under the most extreme conditions, minimizing injury to those nearby, both inside and out.
Vandalism is more than just a nuisance and eyesore, it's also a huge financial drain to public and private budgets. The cost of repeatedly replacing windows and glass that has been scratched up or marked with spray-paint can end up being prohibitive, not to mention time consuming and disruptive.
Graffiti-Free is Madico's window coating for the commercial and retail marketplace. When vandals do strike, it won't be permanent. The window stays put, and just the film is replaced, at a fraction of the cost.
In buildings where the government mandates tempered glass, Madico films can bring buildings up to requirements at costs far below than that of replacing existing windows.
Madico's Safety Films have been extensively tested by independent testing facilities and meet Safety Glazing criteria as defined by CPSC, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Council and Underwriters Laboratories.
Safety Window FilmWe live in a far from perfect world. Whether it's man or nature, destructive forces are all around us. For over 30 years, Madico has been engineering products to increase protection against everything from criminal acts, to catastrophic events.
The powerful blast from a bomb can cause immeasurable destruction. It would seem that windows shattering would be the least of it, but a single square foot of glass can produce up to 200 deadly, razor-sharp fragments. Flying glass shards are what many times causes severe injury, and even death.
Madico's Safety & Security systems are specifically engineered and tested to meet stringent federal and state mandated standards, more so than any other manufacturer in the industry.
Madico conducts blast tests that adhere to the protocols outlined by the U.S. General Services Administration's Standard Test Methodfor Glazing and Window Systems Subject to Dynamic Overpressure Loadings.
Madico has three different glazing system solutions - FrameGard, WetGlaze, and LifeLine - each with its own level of performance. Our systems are in place at some of the most highly protected buildings in the world.
When working with flammable chemicals, there is always the risk of an explosion, and every plant or refinery is required to have a plan in place to minimize loss of life. Madico's SafetyShield® Safety & Security systems should be a key part of any safety plan. SafetyShield® prevents glass from shattering in high-powered internal and external explosions, which would propel thousands of sharp fragments at high speeds, potentially causing additional serious injuries and fatalities. With four Anchoring Restraint Systems to choose from, Madico has the solution that's right for your facility.
Windows are, and always have been, the quickest way for people to gain access to someplace they're not supposed to be. And if they're going in through a smashed window, it's usually because time is something they don't have much of.
Madico's SafetyShield® 1500 stops these intruders in their tracks. When struck, the glass will break, but not shatter, preventing the intruder from entering quickly, and leaving him wondering what to do next. In most cases, the answer is simple: move on. SafetyShield® 1500 is among the first films in the world to pass the UL972 standard for Anti-Intrusion - making it the easy choice to help secure your home or business from theft and intrusion.
