DefenseLite Announces Strategic Alliance with Binswanger GlassMay 28th, 2021 by Editor
Impact Security LLC. (IS), the manufacturer of DefenseLite®, has announced a strategic alliance with Binswanger Glass, a national retail and commercial glazing firm headquartered in Memphis, Tenn. Binswanger will launch their DefenseLite program at their locations in Dallas and Houston, Texas, offering clients high-security window glazing options for maximum protection against security threats.
DefenseLite is a retrofit security shield designed to mount onto existing glazed openings, creating what the company calls “unmatched forced entry protection” at what is typically the weakest link in a building’s security profile, transforming windows and doors into impenetrable openings that are 250 times stronger than glass alone.
This patented retrofit glazing system is exclusive to Impact Security, and only available through authorized dealers once they are trained and certified.
“We are honored that Binswanger Glass has elected to participate in our DefenseLite dealer program,” shared Jeff Franson, president of Impact Security. “Their commitment to providing clients with the strongest possible window glazing security solutions make them an ideal partner. We look forward to what promises to be a longstanding, mutually beneficial relationship.”
“Security glazing can save lives by delaying the entry of intruders and allowing time for law enforcement to respond,” said Travis Greenwald, regional director for Binswanger Glass. “As a trusted supplier to America’s schools, retail stores, office buildings, hospitals, government facilities, and places of worship since 1872, our team is proud to partner with the industry’s leading supplier of polycarbonate security glazing, DefenseLite. With episodes of smash-and-grab crime, forced entry, and political vandalism on the rise, Binswanger Glass Dallas and Houston now have an entire catalog of ASTM, UL and H.P. White rated forced-entry and ballistic-resistant security glazing options for retrofit and new construction applications.”
