Safety & Security
Madico’s Safety & Security Window Films help reduce the risk of personal injury, property damage and loss caused by natural disaster and crime. Available in a wide range of tints, styles and grades, our films are specially designed to deter everything from the high winds of storms to the costly eyesore of graffiti. We invite you to explore the various solutions available to protect your home or office building.
Natural disaster mitigation
During storms, 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.
It’s convenient, permanent, and most importantly, a more effective alternative to boarding or taping your windows.
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. Graffiti-Free can also be used on many non-porous surfaces other than glass.
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. The glass will break, but not shatter, helping to prevent the intruder from entering quickly, and leaving him wondering what to do next. In most cases, the answer is simple: move on.
Madico conducts blast tests that adhere to the protocols outlined by the U.S. General Services Administration’s Standard Test Method for Glazing and Window Systems Subject to Dynamic Overpressure Loadings. Blast mitigation films and anchoring restraint systems are available through our SafetyShield Premier Partner Dealer Network.
