The FrameGard Anchoring System when used in conjunction with SafetyShield film 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 the applied load without putting excessive force on the fixings and frame. 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.
SafetyShield films and proprietary Anchoring Restraint Systems reduce the risk of death, personal injury, and property damage and loss caused by acts of terror, civil unrest, industrial explosions, or natural disasters. These well-engineered safety & security products provide 24/7 passive protection that can be relied on the instant a threat occurs, substantially improving security for all buildings. SafetyShield, a protective film that reduces the risk of glass breakage, is installed only by certified Premier Partners who have been thoroughly trained in all aspects of the film and anchoring systems.
