DSS Glass Protection System

The DSS Glass Protection System consists of two parts providing a unique single Solution Protection from Multiple Threats.

Features & Benefits

  • A Specially formulated, proprietary acrylic adhesive which when applied to glass actually infiltrates the glass pores and strengthens the glass itself.
  • A super-tough polyester film with scratch resistant coating that adheres to the glass.
    • Accidental Glass Shattering
    • Smash & Grab Burglary
    • Explosions
    • Forced Entry
    • Theft
    • Glass Related Injuries
    • Vandalism
    • Burglary
    • Heat
    • Ultra Violet Radiations (UV Rays)
    • Fading of Interior of cars like “Fabric, Carpets, etc.
  • The only system that actually strengthens the glass itself.
  • Easy to install, done quickly on site.
  • Increase the time to break through, and therefore slows down the criminal. Especially effective when used in building and cars in conjunction with vibration detectors/ car alarms which are triggered with the first impact on the glass.
  • Up to 400% stronger than the normal glass.
  • Prevents the likelihood of injuries from flying glass during an explosion or accidental shattering by over 80%.
  • Fire resistant; Hold up to a 2 hours fire rating based on glass thickness.
  • Keep out the heat from sunlight. Depending up to the tinted/reflective film used, the total solar energy rejected can be reduces up to almost 60%.
  • Provide greater comforts and reduces energy costs.
  • Absorbs U/V radiation by more then 98% even with clear film.
  • Stops fading of fabrics, furniture, carpets, window displayers, vehicle interiors.
  • Improves soundproofing of the glass.
  • The process is environment friendly.

DSS Glass Protection System

Limitation of today’s un-enhanced glass is that the glass breaks. Glass is everywhere, but is the weakest link to the safety of any building or vehicle in protecting lives and property. Primary function of this product is to strengthen glass first, then keep the glass intact, in its frame, if broken. The likelihood of injury to person and property is greater in the course of normal glass breakage than this treated glass. It is a proven fact that the application of this system to existing glass can reduce damage and injury by up to 85%.

What is this Product and how does it work?

This is a remarkably strong synthetic film and acrylic adhesive system that is applied any normal/ tempered glass, turning it into a strong, super strength protective shield.

This glass strengthening and protective film system is composed of a specially blended biaxial oriented polyester (PET) laminate and acrylic adhesive system. The film is treated with a scratch resistant coating on the exterior side and specially formulated and patented high temperature acrylic adhesives (containing powerful ultra-violet light inhibitors) on the installation side. A silicone release liner protects the adhesive unit application.

In this multilevel strengthening system, the most important component, the acrylic adhesive is different from the traditional latex adhesive glues that break down causing the film to “lift” off the glass and appear as large air bubbles. This patented acrylic adhesive is a glass penetrating acrylic chemical bonding agent, that when applied to the glass actually infiltrates and absorbs into the glass pores, hardens thereby strengthening the glass itself.

This revolutionary process of bonding acrylic with the pores of the glass strengthens the glass up to 400%. When used along with the polyester sheet, it repels back items that are hurled at it. This strength comes not only from the film but also from the adhesive and mounting solution and automatic attaching equipment. In fact it becomes so strong that in certain thickness that it becomes bullet resistant.

Some Features and Benefits of this system are

  • Helps to make glass shatter resistant by increasing glass strength.
  • Protects your vehicles, home and business 24/7 days a week.
  • Helps to protect against;
    • Glass related injuries from Bombs
    • Glass injuries during Hurricanes or Earthquakes
    • Sudden storms
    • Smash and grab burglary
    • Forced entry
    • Theft
    • Ballistics
    • Vandalism
    • Accidental glass shattering
    • Glass related injuries
    • Fading artwork, fabric, carpets and furnishings.
  • Picture perfect view: optical grade polyester is invisible to the eye. This process not only strengthens the glass but also is optically 100% pure. When used as tints and shades, it improves the appearance of the glass and adds protection from UV light and solar heat.
  • Cleans as easily as glass.
  • Energy savings of up to 12,000 BTU’s/hr per 100 sq. ft. of sunlit windows during daylight hours.
  • The only glass-strengthening product on the world market.

Physical and Thermal Properties

DSS Glass Protection System works around the clock to protect occupants and property. To increase shatter resistance, thicker optical grade polyester is used with special laminating adhesives, giving it its exceptional strength.
