Unprotected glass can lead to catastrophic injuries and damage. Every piece of glass is susceptible to the forces of nature whether it arrives from inclement weather or everyday use.

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.
No matter where you are, or what your window protection needs are, A Solar Solution, Inc. has the films to fit them.
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.
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.

Glass Protection for a Safer World
While glass windows provide a functional benefit by opening up the outside world, they are also susceptible to various types of damage and breakage – whether by accident, natural hazard or criminal act. Safety & Security films offer added protection by holding glass together when facing a variety of hazardous situations:
- Natural Hazard Protection - During hurricanes and tornadoes, safety research indicates that security film can save lives and reduce property damage by preventing flying objects from penetrating windows. Additionally, earthquake studies confirm that home or office structures that include security film can substantially reduce the hazard of flying and shattered glass, a major source of injury.
- Accidental Damage Protection - A variety of glass window accidents occur in the home every year; a stray baseball hits an unintended target, a lawnmower propels a rock, a toddler falls against a bay window. The installation of the proper safety film can keep these minor accidents from becoming a medical emergency.
- Human Threat Protection - Unfortunately, crime and vandalism are a part of our everyday life. Personal safety and property are exposed to the expanding levels of risk associated with “smash and grab” robberies and other more dangerous illegal acts. Safety films provide a much-needed deterrent to vandals and thieves by holding glass panes in place preventing easy entry.
Safety & security films can be found anyplace where glass breakage poses a threat - homes, commercial buildings, retail stores, government buildings and even cars. They are available in a variety of thickness sizes depending on the level of protection needed, and you can choose either a clear film, if you don’t want the look of window film, or a shaded version if you are looking for added solar protection.
Another popular protection film is anti-graffiti. This clear film was created to protect glass and other non-porous surfaces from accidental scratches and acts of vandalism.
