Fine optics manufactured with robust durability and safety in mind.
Lone Star Shatter Shield is a DOTI first surface mirror product laminated for added structural strength and safety. DOTI has developed the ability to laminate to glass, acrylic, metals, etc. This laminating process is a custom DOTI-developed application that we have already been successful in applying to various requirements including techniques for laminating collimating mirrors to create mirrors that are nearly impossible to rupture.
DOTI's original laminating process was developed to meet a customer's need to laminate together dissimilar materials in a highly customized manner. The laminated optical components needed to meet specific transmission characteristics, internal quality requirements, and certain rigidity standards. DOTI successfully developed the product line not only to meet this customer's requirement; we then applied its many successes to several other applications areas. A significant benefit of this process is that the laminated materials become highly break and shatter resistant. Even if a customer were to damage this mirror, it will probably be able to be used without compromising its utility, while ordering a replacement mirror. This process has been tested to ANSI Z97.1 (L) Level B. We have verified this process. Verification of process runs or required changes can be accomplished.
LS3 was developed for use in systems and displays that may be in direct public contact, displays with extreme vibration and sudden stops, or any application where safety is paramount.
