            Even bombs...

            Getting through glass is usually effortless!

            B ut now, makers of some new technology say you can keep your family safe - and the solution is crystal clear.


            Most glass can easily crack - and with some force it shatters into pieces...

            But a canadian company claims all this can be avoided - with just some of this!

            one hit...

            Two hits...

            Even three hits!

            A lmost nothing to this pane of glass that can be a pain in the...

            ...to anyone trying to get into your home.

            Kevin White from "Ace Security Laminates."


            The canadian-based company around for over fourteen years, now marketing itself - and its product - a bit towards the homeland security conscious consumer.


           The investigators teaming-up with the Providence Police Department - putting the product to the test at the police shooting range...


            An eye-opener to possible customers curious about keeping anyone out of their work space.

            You don't know where it is - but it's already being used at logan airport in B oston - and other places like embassies, liquor stores and at network t-v "streetside" studios.

            The "Ace Security Laminate" applied to existing windows and preventing breakage in smash-and-grab situations...

            ...hurricane force winds...

            And even...

            Yes - gunfire...

            And not just one hit.

            Providence Police Officer Frank Moody putting it to the test with a shotgun -

            ...and this reporter putting it to the test, too.

            A smaller calibur gun fired at the already hit window...

            ...six more times.

            The glass isn't indestructable - but the laminate makes it seem that way!

            in other tests, the "burning" question was addressed with the help of a molotov cocktail.

            If you want to "bulletproof" your home or business, you can expect to pay-out roughly 10-dollars a square foot.


            Giving options to people who say, "if you can't beat 'em...

           "Ace Security Laminates" is just one business - of many - now targeting safety because of terrorism and security fears...

            It has been around since the late '90's and went public this year - now boasting a "multi-billion dollar" glass protection industry on its website.
