Safety & Security

 Safety and Security Window Films for glass.

 

Anti-shatter window films are a cost effective solution to bringing existing glazing up to current Building Standards. 

 

In the article below we will be discussing common questions that our customers ask us in relation to safety glazing. We will try to provide as much information as possible covering the issues that are often raised. Please be aware that the information on this page is a brief summary and should be used for guidance only. If you require any more information please call us to speak to our highly trained and experienced surveyors.

Common questions that we are often asked are:

What are my responsibilities in regards to safety glazing for my building?

If you are responsible for a building and have the responsibility to carry out risk assessments on that building, then you will have to consider the safety glazing within the building by the use of a risk assessment. Within the risk assessment you will need to consider the use of each of the areas within the building.

When annealed glass breaks, it produces razor-sharp shards of glass that can cause terrible injury. Any person responsible for a building should ensure that glazing in major 'Risk areas' is made of a safety material to protect both occupants and visitors.

One solution is the application of Safety & Security Film. These films can hold the glass in place when broken, thus helping to prevent any serious injury and potential liabilities that may follow.

The safety window films are produced with different thicknesses and constructed in different ways to provide many different solutions such as:

  • Upgrade glass to meet health and safety criteria and to ensure glass breaks safely
  • Increase time and effort taken to gain entry through a window therefore detering an intruder
  • Provide protection from flying glass in the event of an explosion or missile (such as a brick)

All of the above are features of safety and security window films whilst still maintaining the advantages of optical clarity once the material has adhered to the glass.

Some window films have a different construction to others and therefore have different properties which makes them more suitable for some applications rather than others. For example some films have a higher tensile strength which relates to how strong the product is when subjected to impact. The higher the value the more resistant the material.

  • Prevent injury from glass fragments due to crime and terrorism through window security.
  • Reduction of fading of your furniture, carpets, flooring and more.
