Safety & Security Films

Madico 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 tint, style and grades, our films are specially designed to deter everything from the high winds of hurricanes to the costly eyesore of graffiti. And we back every one of our enduring film solutions with a manufacturer’s warranty that is second to none.

Natural Disaster Protection
Safety Films Image 1 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.

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.

Safety Glazing
Safety Films Image 2 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 its 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.

No matter where you are, or what your window protection needs are, Madico has the films to fit them.

Storm Protection
Unlike shutters or plywood, window film does not need to be installed each time a storm approaches. Window film provides passive protection twenty-four hours a day. Laboratory tests show that Madico’s LCL-800-XSR improves the performance of 1/4" plate glass by 28%, allowing it to withstand >200 MPH winds* (Tested at American Testing Laboratories of South Florida 4/03).

Madico offers a wide range of durable, long-lasting films, tested and proven in thousands of installations around the world, including the Smithsonian, the Louvre, New Scotland Yard and many other landmark structures. Trust our worldwide network of dealers and installers to help you determine which film is best for your building.

Blast Protection
Safety Films Image 3 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 has four different glazing system solutions – FrameGard, GullWing, WetGlaze, and LifeLine – each with its own level of performance. Our systems are in place at some of the most highly protected buildings in the world.

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.

Testing Safety Films
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.
