What do you need to know?

I spoke with an engineer in the film industry who said simply wet glazing will increase strength by max. 5 %. When I asked him which type of " calking " he said any silicone will do. That than and should have ended the conversation. He basically said that wetglazing is a waste of money to the end user. The only way in mechanical system.

Is he correct?

I have always thought the 995 approach was a bit of BS in the overall scheme of things. Im no structural engineer so take what I say as opinion only. The 995 will slow down a intruder from gaining access, but at the end of the day .....its caulking....its messy.....its a pita.....its ugly......Did I miss anything ? Depending on the level of security you need to meet, It may fill the need. For real protection, I believe you need a mechanical attachment

Wet glazing can be effective for certain applications, and the testing data on it that is quite impressive. I see it as an alternative for those who simply cant afford a mechanical attachment, and a thick "bite" on film and frame is very effective. What else could be used on a door besides wet glaze? Even with a mechanical attachment, it still only slows an intruder. Messy and pita...YES! I hate messing with it too. Ugly? Eh...I suppose.
