DEFENSELITE SECURITY GLASS SYSTEM FOR DOORS AND WINDOWS
DefenseLite is a clear security glazing system that installs over existing window and door glass creating a layer of protection designed to ‘keep the bad guys out.’ A patented technology, the DefenseLite overglaze is 250 times stronger than glass, nearly invisible once installed and an affordable solution that works to mitigate criminal attacks.
HOW OUR PATENTED
GLAZING SYSTEM WORKS
DefenseLite polycarbonate security panels are mounted to your existing glazing frames using a custom vented aluminum extrusion that creates stand-off from your primary window and door glass.
Upon attack, the retrofit security glazing system flexes, absorbs and deflects energy away, keeping the bad guys outside! In most cases after installing our overglaze security panel, the primary window does not break, and the criminal flees the scene.
DefenseLite’s patent pending vented extrusion system prevents condensation buildup by dynamically moving air throughout the glazing frames eliminating costly and unsightly moisture problems.
Utilizing proprietary high-optic UV coated polycarbonate shields, vented aluminum extrusions, multi-layer thin films, tough structural adhesives, VHB tapes and security tipped anchors, DefenseLite is an engineered forced-entry solution that combines the best of materials science with an efficient retrofit installation.
4) Patented vented extrusion mounts to the existing glazing frame creating standoff for the polycarbonate shield from primary glass
1) “Unbreachable” UV capped, clear polycarbonate shield is secured to the vented extrusion with security “flex” screws and elastomeric VHB tapes
2) “Super bond” anchoring method secures the engineered system to the existing glazing providing for unmatched flex, tensile and tear strength upon attack
3) Customized powder-coating creates full aesthetic integration with existing glazing upon retrofit installation

What is DefenseLite?
DefenseLite is the ‘flexible’ and ‘vented’ overglaze security solution. A patented technology, DefenseLite is a ‘clear security shield’ that installs over existing window and door glazing creating a layer of protection designed to ‘keep the bad guys out’. DefenseLite shields are 250 times stronger than glass, nearly invisible once installed and a long-term forced-entry solution that works. Utilizing proprietary high-optic UV coated polycarbonate shields, patented vented extrusions, multi-layer thin films and tough structural adhesives and flexible security tipped anchors, DefenseLite is an engineered system that combines the best of materials science with an easy to retrofit installed solution.
What makes DefenseLite a superior ‘overglaze’ security solution for windows & door glass?
Better quality components and superior mechanical and thermal engineering separates DefenseLite from less expensive competitor systems. DefenseLite is a patented ‘flexible’ and ‘vented’ overglaze system that provides for unmatched resilience under robust attack. Our patent pending venting system protects customers from longer-term condensation and moisture related issues inherent in hermetically sealed, non-vented, field installed overglaze systems.
How is DefenseLite Installed?
DefenseLite is installed over your existing window and door glazing by certified dealer/installers. Mounted and anchored onto the exterior or interior of your existing glazing, DefenseLite affixes to your window or door frames creating an airspace between the primary glass and the DefenseLite clear shield. A weather sealed and vented system that mitigates any ‘pillowing’ or condensation buildup, DefenseLite is custom made for every opening and designed to blend into the existing framing for a clean, finished look. DefenseLite is nearly invisible upon a completed installation, has no moving parts or long-term serviceable items.
What are the benefits of DefenseLite other than security?
DefenseLite can reduce street noise by up to 40% and improve energy efficiency of existing glass by over 50%. DefenseLite will defeat most attacks while protecting the primary glass from breaking. DefenseLite incorporates a proprietary sacrificial film coating on its surface that defeats graffiti tagging while protecting the shield from damage.
Will the DefenseLite polycarbonate yellow from sun exposure?
DefenseLite polycarbonate sheets are “UV capped” and warranted against yellowing for a minimum of 7 years. Many DefenseLite systems incorporate a secondary layer of UV protection with the application of a thin film laminate primarily designed for sacrificial surface protection.
