The bulk of the VehicleGARD glass protection film was shipped directly to troops in newly designed, custom-cut "peel and stick" kits that included specially produced instructional videotapes and field installation tools for self installation.
"VehicleGARD is providing a real and immediate benefit to the men and women in combat situations who risk their lives on a daily basis," said Jordan Frankel, Vice President, ShatterGARD, Inc. "We frequently hear from soldiers about how our film saved lives and prevented serious injuries in combat zones. VehicleGARD is an affordable, easy-to-install solution that protects vehicle occupants and also provides much needed peace of mind".
Applied directly to automotive glass surfaces, VehicleGARD film multiplies the strength of ordinary vehicle glass. In the event of a bomb blast, VehicleGARD helps hold all pieces of a broken window together, greatly reducing the likelihood of injury to passengers in the vehicle. VehicleGARD is the latest generation of well-accepted window protection films currently in use throughout the military and law enforcement industry. Shattergard's database contains window dimensions of virtually all military vehicles, enabling swift and proper installation of the film in harsh conditions and surroundings.
"An IED (Improvised Explosive Device) exploded near a military vehicle and the passengers stayed unharmed," said Captain Kathleen Jacobson, Transportation Battalion, United States Army. "I know for a fact that ShatterGARD's window film is saving lives. It takes more than an Army to win a war, and ShatterGARD contributes to the fight on a daily basis," she added.
Research suggests that most blast fatalities and injuries are the direct result of deadly flying glass. Because it minimizes or eliminates such effects, VehicleGARD is a cost-effective, proven method of reducing risk of injury in life-threatening situations.
