National Glazing Solutions Unveils Tri-Shield : First Smash & Grab Protection Retrofit System to Meet Requirements of ASTM F1233 Level 1.0 Blunt Force Impact Test

Share Article

Tri-Shield smash & grab protection system enhances existing storefront glass strength to protect against physical attacks using blunt objects, like a 12-pound ball-peen hammer striking the glass 10 times (Tri-Shield passed the ASTM F1233 level 1.0 test when applied to 1/4" single pane tempered glass).

By reputation, we develop best-in-class solutions for our national retail partners.

National Glazing Solutions (NGS), a full-service provider of security, solar and specialty window films to retail operations across the U.S., reveals the company’s proprietary Tri-Shield smash & grab protection window film system at GlobalShop 2013 in Chicago from April 16 -18. NGS will also feature other innovations for glass and walls, including solar control, anti-graffiti, privacy, custom-printed and specialty window films, in addition to signage scopes at Booth #1357.

Known for their extensive access to the industry’s top manufacturers and their own in-house technical expertise, NGS put their resources to work in developing Tri-Shield, a smash & grab protection, retrofit system for glass that is proven to deter smash-and-grab crimes. Unlike other popularly accepted security glass applications, Tri-Shield is the only retrofit system that meets stringent requirements for ASTM F1233 level 1.0 protection against physical attacks using blunt objects, like a 12-pound ball-peen hammer. Lab results verify the following specs for Tri-Shield:

  •     Anti- intrusion = ASTM F1233 level 1.0
  • Human Impact = ANSI Z-97.1 Unlimited
  • CPSC 16 CFR part 1201 Category II
  • Hurricane = ASTM E-1886/E-1996 Large Missile Impact Category B
  • Blast Mitigation = GSA performance condition 3A

To demonstrate Tri-Shield’s performance, NGS will present a live smash test during the show on Wednesday, April 16 from 1:30 to 1:45.

“By reputation, we develop best-in-class solutions for our national retail partners,” says James Beale, NGS Managing Partner and Vice President of Sales, who invites all to drop by Booth #1357.
