Product Overview

There are four different patented and proprietary Anchoring Restraint System solutions available – each with its own level of performance. Our highly-trained Premier Partners 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.

FrameGardTM 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.

GullWing®
The GullWing Anchoring System, when combined with Madico SafetyShield window film, is designed to absorb and disperse 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.

Wet Glaze
In the event of glass breakage, 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 or GE SCS2000 SilPruf™ Sealant.

LifeLine®
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 SafetyShield 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.
