Armorcoat Safety Window Films Pass Some of the Most Stringent Testing in the Industry
Armorcoat safety window films have passed some of the toughest government and consumer testing to provide effective hurricane window protection, blast mitigation and overall window safety, making it one of the best investments for homeowners in high risk areas, commercial buildings, and government facilities. The resilient layers of high-tensile polyester, aggressive adhesives, ultraviolet inhibitors and scratch-resistant coatings provide exceptional blast mitigation and impact resistant capabilities – with thicker films offering greater protection.

Hurricane Resistance
Armorcoat 8Mil safety and security film has met the most stringent hurricane mitigation tests. These standard tests, ASTM 1886/1996 Large Missile Impact Level “C” or 4.5lb missile, ensure that Armorcoat 8Mil safety and security films offer the best protection money can buy. Conducted on 3/16” tempered glass with wind speeds up to 140 mph, these tests give property owners in hurricane prone areas the peace of mind that only comes with 24x7 window reinforcements through window film. Solar Gard Armorcoat 8Mil safety and security film is ideal for proactively safeguarding glass in residential properties up to 30 feet in height.

Human Impact Standards
To increase public safety, lawmakers developed human impact standards mandating specific strength levels for glass. To reach the required levels, glass had to be tempered or heat strengthened, however annealed glass needs window film or other enhancements to achieve compliance when necessary. The two most commonly accepted human impact standards are:

  • American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z 97.1 – testing involves glass impact of 100 and 150 foot pounds, the standard most commonly used for residential applications. Armorcoat films 4 Mil or thicker passed!
  • Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) Code Federal Regulations (CFR) 1201, category II – testing involves glass impact of 400 foot pounds, the standard more commonly used for commercial applications. Armorcoat films 7 Mil or thicker passed!
