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.
It's convenient, permanent, and most importantly, a more effective alternative to boarding or taping your windows.
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.
We 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.
Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Chemical explosions. Bomb blasts. Theft. Vandalism. All of these events can cause massive damage to our homes and businesses, and in many cases, can prove lethal. The addition of Madico films and our safety Anchoring Restraint Systems dramatically improve security for buildings of all kinds.
As a founding member of AIMCAL, Madico is, and always has been the pioneer and world leader in the development of window protection systems. Where most manufacturers test for minimum code requirements, Madico's films meet or exceed the requirements of more US and international standards for safety and security than anyone.
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 Method for Glazing and Window Systems Subject to Dynamic Overpressure Loadings.
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.
Madico believes the most important aspect of our business is in the testing of our products, and we go to lengths to make sure it's the most extensive testing possible. We hire independent consultants to test our films under the most extreme conditions. Instead of swinging a sandbag into a pane of glass from 5 feet, Madico films are subjected to detonations of up to 10 psi - enough to take down most buildings.
Our films meet and surpass more government and international standards than any other films. When you install Madico products, we guarantee you the best the industry has to offer.
