Solar Gard® 8Mil Safety and Security Window Film Receives Large Missile Certification
Third Party Testing Validates Impact Standards for Industry Leading Safety and Security Window Film
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Solar Gard® is pleased to announce its Armorcoat® 8Mil safety and security film has met one of the most stringent hurricane mitigation tests. These test standards, ASTM 1886/1996 Large Missile Impact Level “C” or 4.5lb missile, ensure that Solar Gard Armorcoat 8Mil safety and security films offer the best protection money can buy. Conducted on 3/16” tempered glass, the anchored film withstood the 2x4 impacts and then cycled at pressures equivalent to wind speeds up to 140 mph. These tests give property owners in hurricane prone areas the peace of mind that only comes with 24x7 window reinforcements through window film. Solar Gard Armorcoat 8Mil safety and security film is ideal for proactively safeguarding glass in residential properties up to 30 feet in height.
“Many customers want verification of how window film will work to protect their homes and families, and Solar Gard delivers this through the large missile impact certification.”
