Retrofit, Clear Laminate for Reliable Riot Protection


When violence breaks out, retailers and building owners need robust protection amidst chaos on the streets. Building and storefront glass windows and doors are easy targets for forced entry, property damage and inventory theft.

RiotLite™, is an innovative laminate solution from DefenseLite that applies directly onto existing glass surfaces. Featuring a durable, thick film ‘stack’ for application to interior glass, RiotLite provides reliable shatter-resistance for property owners in the face of severe security threats — including riots and smash & grab crime.  RiotLite is an economical protective measure against physical threats from violent criminals and mobs and installed nationwide by certified dealers.


RiotLite™ consists of optically clear, 4-40 mil thick films “stacked” in a proprietary fashion for application to interior glass surfaces. This thick, clear laminate provides a sturdy layer of fragment resistance, absorbing the impact from blunt force. Keep bad guys at bay rather than allowing for easy entry to your business with the application of this security laminate.

With “stackable” protection up to 40 mils, RiotLite is built to withstand high-impact threats. Plus, with properties of UV protection, RiotLite even reduces the negative effects of UV exposure, leading to added longevity of interior furnishings and inventories. Easy to clean with long-lasting durability, RiotLite is the clear choice for riot protective glass for storefront and building doors and windows.
