Blocks Harmful and Destructive UV Rays
UV gives you a tan. That's nice, but your furniture, carpets, wall paper and favorite painting will be discolored by it, too. Nothing can cause the value of your fine furnishings, wood flooring, artwork and fabrics to depreciate more quickly than fading and deterioration. Thanks to Panorama, your interior will remain new for a longer time. Panorama® window film from Bekaert keeps UV rays where they belong: outside. All Panorama window films help keep you safe from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light, providing a partial deterrent to premature skin aging and some potential skin cancers.
Panorama® Films Skin Cancer Foundation Recommended. Summertime is here, and along with the season’s good weather often comes an increased awareness of the dangers associated with catching too much sun. Many people think of sun damage only when they’re in the yard or at the beach. But the reality is we have to change how we think about skin cancer. The sun is harmful to our skin, whether exposure is at the beach, in the car, at work, or at home. Panorama's Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation makes our window film an excellent solution for anyone who is looking to protect their skin. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States – more than 1 million skin cancers are diagnosed annually. One in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. More than 90 percent of all skin cancers are caused by sun exposure. A person's risk for skin cancer doubles if he or she has had five or more sunburns.

Protection from Information Theft
Information theft is a modern-day threat to government security and high profile businesses. Everyday electronic equipment, such as wireless networks, PDAs, laptops, cellular phones and computer monitors, release electromagnetic fields that are intercepted and decoded by hi-tech criminals. Certain Armorcoat window films act as a barrier, with their flexible, transparent metal layer blocking the transmission of classified information through electromagnetic interference (EMI). Protect your business privacy and block advanced eavesdroppers with Armorcoat window film, the preferred protection product against electronic intrusion.
Protection from Storms and Severe Weather
Windows are your home’s most vulnerable area. Once broken during severe weather or high winds, you can experience severe property damage. Armorcoat protects people and furnishings from the dangerous airborne shards that cause a majority of injury and damage during and after the storm. Armorcoat safety film is an optically clear, polyester glass coating, not obtrusive like plywood and other window coverings that block your view. You don’t have to be home to tape or board your windows in preparation for rough weather or other acts of nature. Armorcoat offers passive, 24/7 window safety and protection as it is professionally installed without drilling or special storage requirements.
Protection from Bomb Blast and Explosions
With the ever-present threat of terrorism, commercial and government building safety has never been a higher priority. High-risk areas now include just about every major city of the world. Even buildings in the outlying areas are susceptible to major damage if an explosion should occur. The shock wave exerts enormous amounts of pressure, breaking unprotected glass and sending harmful shards into your environment at high velocities. Armorcoat’s strong, resilient adhesive and flexible construction enable it to withstand severe levels of positive and negative pressure – allowing the film to move with the window should a blast occur, retaining dangerous fragments…acting as a protective barrier between you and disaster. GSA approved Armorcoat has been installed on some of the most safety-intensive buildings in the world, from the Pentagon and FBI offices to many U.S. and foreign embassies.
