Security Film Spotlighted After Thwarting Hamas Attack in Israel October 25th, 2023 by Casey Flores What was initially a security film job meant to deter burglars has gone viral for saving 12 people from a Hamas terrorist attack in Israel. In 2021, Jerusalem-based SunShield Group installed security film on a convenience store in Gevim Kibbutz (a Kibbutz is a small Israeli community) as part of a contract to secure all of its store locations in Israel. Gevim is less than 4 miles from the Gaza border and was the target of a recent Hamas attack. “The alarm sirens set off because Hamas shot rockets nearby,” says Uriel Nathan, owner of SunShield Group. “People took shelter in the convenience store. When they went outside, they saw a pickup truck with 8 Hamas terrorists on it,” so they went back in and locked the door. Security footage from that day—October 7—shows one member of the terrorist group using a gun to try and break in, to no avail. The event made national news and was featured on Israel’s Channel 12 News, the nation’s largest channel. “They tried to break into that store and if the glass wasn’t protected, it would’ve been breached and the people inside would’ve been murdered for sure,” Nathan says. “I got a call from the company’s security officer and he told me it saved 12 lives. There were Arabs, Jews and Christians alike in there. He thanked me and told me there’s going to be a lot more work soon.” The customer asked that he not disclose the exact specifications of the installation, but Nathan says it was a stacked multi-layered film. In addition to his regular business, Sunshield Group is flooded with requests for security film installations while being down two employees who were called for duty to the Israel Defense Forces. Nathan is grateful for the chance to save lives. “We have a lot of footage of burglars trying to break in, but this is different—they’re trying to kill people,” he says.
Patriot Glass Solutions
by C-Bond Systems
Reinforces windows using a proprietary technology that makes the glass resistant to gunfire, explosive blasts, and other forms of ballistic threats. This extra layer of defense helps keep students and staff safe during a potential school shooting.
Patriot Glass Solutions is unmatched in the film market in terms of protection, durability, and reliability. Other security and ballistic-resistant window films are installed with soap and water, offering less protection. Our patented solution, used between the glass and each layer of window film, identifies microscopic flaws in the glass and “heals” them.

For more than 40 years, FEMA has helped people before, during and after disasters. FEMA is committed to building and developing a culture of preparedness across the country.
In support of FEMA’s mission, the organization is responsible for the administration of Federal funds to deliver numerous disaster and non-disaster financial assistance programs. One of these programs is the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP). The NSGP provides funding support for hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack.
Safety & Security Film for Physical Security
One of the allowable costs under the program is equipment, specifically safety and security window film. Funding can be used for “the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property (including buildings and improvements) owned or leased by the nonprofit organization, specifically in prevention of and/or protection against the risk of a terrorist attack.”
As a professional window film dealer and installer, this program presents an opportunity to help secure nonprofit institutions that may have otherwise not been able to afford Madico safety and security film. Safety and security films offer numerous benefits to these nonprofits such as 24/7 passive protection from flying glass shards if a window is impacted, bomb blast mitigation, intrusion resistance and more.
Many nonprofits, such as local places of worship, are unaware that this program exists. Reaching out to the property managers at these nonprofits, armed with information about this grant, is a great way to make them aware and introduce them to the benefits of Madico safety and security film.
Federal Funds Available
For 2019, the total amount of funds under this nonprofit security grant program is $60 million. Individual nonprofits can qualify for an award of up to $100,000.
