SHOOTER ATTACK CERTIFIED FILM
WHEN SECONDS COUNT, THIS SYSTEM CAN SAVE LIVES.
When an attacker shoots at a standard window, the glass will shatter instantly, and the intruder is inside in seconds. The added layer of shooter attack film protection slows down the active shooter and allows emergency response teams more time to arrive at the scene.
There are many “security films” sold in the U.S., but Armoured One is the only one that has passed a Class 1 UL Observed Shooter Attack Test. That means that every other film sold is not going to protect you from someone with a gun. Every competitor window film will rip very easily after a hole is pierced in it.
Armoured One’s proprietary film was invented and designed to hold its integrity by being stronger and holding together for longer. Armoured One’s security film was designed by active shooter experts and is military/police grade. Installation of our 23MIL film is applied on the inner most surface of your existing glass and anchored to your existing framing. Our films are much thicker and utilize a patented adhesive technology that allows us to achieve the strength that other films cannot.
Be leery of companies that claim to have “bulletproof” window film, or even “bulletproof” glass. Bulletproof does not exist, and it definitely doesn’t exist by adding film to your standard glass. Armoured One makes no claim to be bulletproof. There is only bullet resistance. Just adding film to standard commercial 1/4″ glass will not make it bulletproof or bullet-resistant. Companies claiming to add their security window film to standard glass and making it bullet-resistant is a lie and a marketing scheme. If they add multiple layers of film to 1/4″ glass they will stop some bullets from handguns. The problem with adding multiple layers of film to achieve a BR rating is that it causes a loss in clarity, more dust imperfections, and delamination of the film. This would create integrity and warranty issues with every brand sold in the United States. The durability of the film comes through the 23 mil thickness, the resilience of the adhesive, and the break strength.
WHAT DOES PASSING A SHOOTER ATTACK TEST MEAN?
Armoured One has passed a Class 1 UL Observed Shooter Attack Test where the film was shot 10 times with an AR15 .223 round and then hit with a 100 lbs. ram at a minimal force of 50-foot pounds. After being shot the glass is struck minimally two (2) times at 50-foot pounds of force by the ram and must stay together. If the ram penetrates the glass before the completion of the two hits it is considered a failure. This test is completed by FILTI and observed by UL.
Other companies have utilized timed tests where they throw bricks or hit it with hammers or other objects. This is not ideal as these objects are not used in an active shooter scenario. The other major concern is that there is no measurable amount of force being used after it has been shot. This can cause a false sense of security and open the customer to liability if an attacker gets through in less time than tested.
Not one of Armoured One Film’s competitors has been able to pass the UL observed Shooter Attack Test. FILTI tested 3M’s 8 mil window film applied to 1/4″ tempered glass and it failed to meet the minimal standard to qualify as Shooter Attack Certified.
ANOTHER LEVEL OF SECURITY
- Armoured One’s security film was designed by active shooter experts and is military/police grade.
- Installation of our 23MIL film is applied on the inner most surface of your existing glass and anchored to your existing framing.
- Our films are much thicker and utilize a patented adhesive technology that allows us to achieve the strength that other films cannot.
Armoured One Security Film is the first film to pass a Class 1 UL Observed Shooter Attack Test, which means it is designed for bullets to go through but will still hold together for longer than typical safety film.
Other timed tests utilizing bricks, hammers, or other objects, are not ideal as these objects are not typically used in an active shooter scenario.
FORCED ENTRY & BURGLARY RESISTANT
Attackers target glass for easier access into a building. Armoured One’s Tactical Security Film is designed to slow down any attacker from being able to gain entry by withstanding multiple hits.
Armoured One’s Tactical Security Film is wind debris resistant. Our film has passed tests for small missile projectiles that simulate wind debris that could hit glass during strong winds, such as hurricanes.
Armoured One’s Tactical Security Film meets standard test methods for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials. Our film helps reduce the spread of fire, allowing more time for evacuation procedures to take place.
BOMB BLAST & EXPLOSIVE PROTECTANT
Bomb blast or explosions can cause glass shards to become lethal objects. Armoured One’s Tactical Security Film is bomb blast and explosive resistant, reducing the amount of flying glass.
SAFETY GLAZING & GLASS BREAKAGE
Armoured One’s Tactical Security Film reduces the amount of injury due to human contact from broken glass. Our film meets safety glazing codes to reduce the risk of pieces injuring people.
