II safety-rated wired glass product. The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that each defendant is currently marketing and/or selling a product identical to SAFTI FIRST's patented SuperLite I-W.

SAFTI FIRST recently successfully defended its patent rights for another product, SuperLite I-XL. According to the President and CEO of SAFTI FIRST, Mr. Bill O'Keeffe, "Even though there's growing concern among American manufacturers over patent infringement by foreign competitors, we are especially concerned about the infringement by other U.S. companies within the fire rated glazing industry seeking to benefit form our product development efforts. Either way, we intend to defend our patents vigorously."
