Metal Shield is a 6.5 mil. thick Anti-Graffiti abatement and obscuring film to be applied on existing metal surfaces to replicate the original surface appearance.
This Patent Pending product was initially designed to solve a common problem with Stainless Steel in general public environments. Typically Stainless Steel is the metal of choice to resist corrosion and rusting from the elements as a cladding or building material. However as durable as this metal is, it is easily damaged by anything abrasive including but not limited to sand paper, keys and screwdriver like tools. With that said, a vandal could “tag” their name into a panel of Stainless Steel with minimal effort and cause epic damage. Since Stainless Steel is prefinished at a factory with large format machinery to give it a polished grain appearance, repairing damage by hand in the field is virtually impossible to achieve without having a refinished or repaired look.
The solution- Metal Shield. By preparing the Stainless Steel and installing over the damage our 6.5 mil thick film that replicates the appearance of original Stainless Steel you are rendered a clean new protected surface. This film is thick enough to protect the substrate from normal damage if it was to be vandalized again and or cover up existing damage while making the surface look new and factory finished.
Our Metal Shield utilizes a proprietary adhesive strictly designed to bond strong enough as to not be removed by the general public but easily removed by a trained technician without leaving any adhesive transfer on the metal surface.
Stainless Steel is just one of many finishes that Metal Shield is available in.
This product is currently used in many places that utilize Stainless Steel such as:
- Public Map Display Cases

Mirror Shield is a 5 mi. thick anti-graffiti abatement film designed to mimic the look of a mirror while providing an undetectable sacrificial coating to the substrate underneath
Mirror Shield was designed to help keep up with vandalism spreading to new canvases. Graffiti is now being found on mirrors, regardless of it being a public or private environment. Since mirrors are often found in restrooms, this makes the perfect canvas as it’s a less populated area. This can give vandals an infinite amount of time to cause epic amounts of damage to the surface. Damage is traditionally done with screwdriver like tools or knives in order to carve into the surface. Once a mirror is vandalized it’s rendered useless and will typically get replaced. However, the installation of Mirror Shield can prevent the need to replace the mirror and will further protect it from damage.
Mirror Shield offers the reflective look of a mirror, while providing protection to the surface underneath. When a mirror is then re-vandalized it will only be the protective film that’s destroyed, not the mirror. Mirror Shield is also a green alternative to replacing the actual mirror. Instead of throwing the mirror away and having it sit in a land fill, you’re simply covering the surface to make it “like new” again. Like our other products it is acid resistant and it also uses the same adhesive so that it can’t be pulled off by the general public, but by a trained technician without leaving any adhesive residue behind.
