Retrofit Door and Window Protection
DefenseLite® is a patented security glazing system manufactured by Impact Security, LLC. This retrofit security shield is designed to mount onto the existing glazing, creating unmatched forced entry protection. DefenseLite transforms windows and doors into impenetrable openings that are 250 times stronger than glass alone. DefenseLite is NOT an applied security film, but rather a heavy gauge architectural grade polycarbonate and extruded framing system designed to keep intruders out. The surface of the polycarbonate is UV coated to protect against scratching, graffiti and other factors that may result in the degradation of the material. As the bullet-resistant version of DefenseLite, BulletShield is independently tested to provide UL 752 ballistic ratings, preventing breach against 9MM, .44 Magnum, and AR-15 bullets, to name just a few. BulletShield can be installed over your existing glass from the interior or exterior. With 7 regional offices and installation teams in every major city, specifiers can be confident of the ease of access anywhere in the United States.
