  • Protecting People and Property Worldwide TM
  • Company Background
    • Founded in 1991, ACE (Advanced Coatings Engineering) is represented in more than 40 countries worldwide
    • Our goal is to ensure the safety of people and property worldwide
    • ACE manufactures a micro-thin transparent window laminate which revolutionizes regular glass windows so that it can resist the force of small firearms, bombs, high impact projectiles and extreme weather conditions
    • ACE products are now available through the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule for use by all U.S. Government Agencies
  • Commitment to Our Clients
    • As a dedicated, award-winning company, we employ our knowledge and expertise in window laminate technology in collaboration with our clients to ensure that they receive the best security solution to address their needs
    • ACE advantages:
      • Products – superior quality security laminates on account of our proprietary manufacturing and adhesive processes
      • Service – rigorous training program and industry-leading installation standards
  • Product Line
    • ACE has developed a full line of safety and security laminates to address various threat situations:
      • 100 Series (Safety) – converts regular glass into safety glass to reduce the risk of injury from accidental breakage
      • 200 Series (Security) – protects vulnerable glass from accidental and intentional impact (i.e., forced entry)
      • 300 Series (Bullet and Bomb Resistance) – superior protection against forced entry, severe weather, small firearms and bomb blasts
      • 400 Series (Ultimate Bullet and Bomb Resistance) – maximum protection against forced entry and high level terrorist threats
  • Why Choose Security Laminates?
    • The single-most cost-effective approach to preventing personal injury, loss of life and property damage from forced entry (burglary), projectile entry and explosive blasts
    • Can be applied as a retrofit or to new construction
    • Security laminates:
      • Have been around for approximately 20 years
      • Had there beginnings in the window tint industry
      • Through R&D it was discovered that a multi-layered polyester laminate could offer high levels of protection
  • Laminate Application
    • The type of security laminate application is determined by the level of protection desired
    • Laminate must consist of multiple layers of polyester film
    • Laminate must use non-drying, non-hardening pressure sensitive adhesives
    • Laminate, with adhesive, must have minimum thickness of 127 microns
    • Laminate break strength varies between 110-450 lbs/inch depending on the desired level of protection
  • Benefits of Security Laminates
    • High-impact protection
    • Bomb-blast protection
    • Bullet resistant on ½-inch annealed glass
    • UV protection by rejecting up to 98% of solar UV rays
    • Heat resistant
    • Extremely hard to ignite and are self-extinguishing
  • Are you a potential victim?
  • Bomb Blast
    • Our SL-14 laminate has been blast tested with up to 2500 lbs of explosives
    • Proven to be the highest level of fragmentation retention in the industry
    • Resists temperatures of up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit
    • ACE/Security Laminates will resist heat from a fire and stay intact, even during forceful explosions
  • Bomb Blast no protection
    • When a bomb goes off, it is the glass that kills or injures.
    • Window fragments become projectiles and daggers.
    Video footage from CERL – Medicine Hat, Alberta at ACE Blast Mitigation Testing. Picture yourself in this building…
  • Bomb Blast with protection
    • 4-sided anchoring
    • 800 lbs of explosives at 145 ft
    Now picture yourself in this building… Where would you feel safer?
    • ¼-inch glass with 14mm of laminate and 2 catch bars
    • 800 lbs of explosives at 180 ft
    Bomb Blast with protection Again, where would you feel safer?
  • Quantico Marine Corps Base
    • ACE/Security Laminates has participated in elite security demonstrations at Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia, U.S.A. in 1997, 2001 and 2003
    • On all occasions, police, military and government officials were extremely impressed with the performance of our products at these demonstrations
  • Firearms
    • ACE/Security Laminates, when applied to ½-inch glass, can provide resistance to small caliber firearms such as a .38, 9mm, or a .357 magnum
    • Test results clearly indicate that the combination of ½-inch glass and our SL-14 product provide a significant level of bullet resistance
    • SL-14 exceeds UL Bullet resistance standards for ½-inch glass with small fire arms
  • Public Protests
    • Our laminates can significantly reduce personal injuries that typically take place during protestor demonstrations (e.g., Molotov cocktails, flying glass shards, etc.)
  • Automotive Applications
    • Once applied to your car window, our security laminate:
      • Eliminates a thief’s primary weapons: speed and ease of access
      • Reduces flying glass shards in collisions
      • Blocks up to 98% of solar UV rays
      • Reduces road and wind noise by up to 4 decibels
    • Although an alarm by itself will not deter a thief from breaking the glass of your car door, our security laminates will .
  • Energy Savings
    • Windows and fixed glass allow the relatively easy transmission of heat and light into the interior of a building or a shopping mall; for instance, according to the California Energy Commission, heat entering through existing windows accounts for 30% of a building’s cooling requirements
    • Glass will continue to be a significant part of a building’s envelope
    • According to architects, in most buildings these days, glass accounts for anywhere between one-sixth (17%) to three-fifths (60%) of the total building area
  • Energy Savings (Cont’d)
    • In 2003, a study was conducted at Stanford University’s Encina Hall, in which spectrally selective window film was applied to approximately 6,300 square feet of glass; spectrally selective film blocks solar heat while transmitting high levels of natural light
    • ACE products have the same characteristics, in addition to providing much needed security features; furthermore, since our products are essentially transparent (unlike tinted glass), they allow building premises to be lit with natural light while minimizing the effects of solar heat/UV rays
    • The study conclusively showed that energy requirements to remove heat with the film installed were 49% lower (i.e., $34 per day) than what were required prior to the film’s installation (i.e., $67 per day)
  • Energy Savings (Illustrative Example)
    • If a building has 100,000 square feet of covered area, let us say that glass conservatively accounts for 30,000 square feet (30%)
    • At Rs 37 per square foot per month (ACE India calculations based on BSES indicative figures), the annual energy/electricity bill for the building (i.e., air-conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter) would be Rs 4.44 crores
    • Applying SL-9 laminate to 30,000 square feet of glass would represent a one-time cost of Rs 90 lakhs
    • Annual recurring savings at 20%-, 30%- and 40%-levels would amount to Rs 89 lakhs, Rs 133 lakhs and Rs 178 lakhs per annum, respectively, representing payback periods of 1 year, 8 months and 6 months on the installation of the laminate
