Let’s rewind to 1970, when Shat-R-Shield introduced the world’s first shatter-resistant fluorescent lamp, pioneering the protective lighting industry. This revolutionary product spawned tremendous growth and established Shat-R-Shield as the brand name for safety-coated lighting across North America. Regulations set forth by OSHA and the FDA required industries, such as food processing, to protect themselves from glass contamination and nothing else on the market was comparable to a Shat-R-Shield product. That was 46 years ago. Nearly half a century has passed since the invention of shatter-resistant lamps and the company still thrives off its existence today.
