Instead of offering certified large missile impact film to customers seeking security for their weakest link from storms or human intrusion, many of our competitors are offering a fraud — a cheap substitute 4 or 6 mil product that FAILS impact tests.
Often they claim that their product is “just as good” as ours. It is happening even today. They know thinner films are cheaper. Its a con and a lie that these thin films will provide security on glass. Click to see our 1 minute video testing 8 mil versus 4 mil versus bare glass.

In this actual test on a residence, we put 8 mil and some 4 mil film on the windows of a house for one of our sales reps. He was planning to get new windows so we used his old windows for a test of 8 Mil vs. 4 mil (and bare glass) when a large missile hits it. For our “missile” we used a brick which is close to the 4.5 lb. Level C (ASTM 1886/1996 standard). So, on the day he was getting new windows we did this test to break his windows and see what happens.
In about 1 minute in this video you will see that Armor Glass 8 mil security film worked, as it has for many of our clients over the years.
But the brick went through the window with 4 mil film like a hot knife through butter! Was saving some money buying an inferior substitute really worth the pain of a failure during a break-in (or a storm throwing wind-borne debris through your windows).
Don’t fall for the con! Insist on 8 Mil certified Armor Glass security film. More details at our website: www.ArmorGlass.com
