Z SECURE© is a patented and tested attachment system for doors used in conjunction with security window films. Glass is typically
the weak point many criminals exploit in order to enter a building or home. Consequently, it is desirable to have a system and
method which allows for increased security. If an unwanted intruder breaks the glass, this attachment will hold the security filmed
glass in the frame of the door. Currently, many of the specifications issued with construction project drawings reference a bead of
silicone applied to the glass stop on the filmed surface of the glass. The security film will stay attached to the glass, but this silicone
option will not hold the glass in a frame without an anchoring attachment system.
Z SECURE© is a custom product made for each door size and style with available colors that match popular frame options including
Clear Anodized, Dark Bronze, and more. Aesthetically this system is preferred over the rubberized glazing tape OR the silicone
bead alternatives. Z SECURE© is custom shaped to go over the glass stop with a .50" bite on to the frame and a 90 degrees bend to glass.
Another 90 degrees bend will go onto the glass surface. Bend and Angle Dimensions of the shape will always vary because of the custom
fit of Z Secure© and depending on the depth of the glass stop.
Z SECURE© is a securement system which can withstand more blows than traditional glass. A pane of glass 104 is installed into a
door frame support 102 with adhered security film 105. A Z SECURE© bracket 106 made of .040 aluminum has a glass coupler 108
portion, a gap definer 109, and a support coupler 110. The glass coupler is adhered to the security film via 3MTM VHBTM Tape clear
.50" using UV Adhesive Promoter or Primer 94 and the support coupler is adhered to the door frame support via 3MTM VHBTM Tap
clear .50" using UV Adhesive Promoter or Primer 94.
Technical data for both the aluminum as well as the 3M materials used are available upon request.
This project required a safety and security film with a minimalistic looking attachment system. The film is 3M Ultra 800 with our patented Z Secure© attachment system on the door and Pentagon Protection Standard Elite on the windows.
