Secure the Openings
Impact Security (IS) LLC has launched new tools and resources to support authorized DefenseLite dealers and architects across the United States and Canada. These resources include a new website, complete with dealer portal and a dealer locator page, ARCAT (an online specification resource), a spec resource called 4Specs and a partnership with AEC Daily to launch a continuing education course titled "Retrofit Security Glazing Solutions for Advanced Forced Entry & Ballistic Protection."
DefenseLite is a patented security glazing system manufactured by IS. The retrofit security shield is designed to mount onto existing glazed openings, creating forced-entry protection at what is typically the weakest link in a building's security profile. A bullet-resistant version of DefenseLite, BulletShield, is available, backed by independent tests that the company says yielded UL 752 ballistic ratings, preventing breach against 9MM, .44 Magnum, and other aggressive attacks.
