Anti-Bomb Blast Protection Film
A very high percentage of injury during a bomb blast results from flying glass. We have a high quality specialist window film that, made with thick, heavy-duty polyester bonded by strong adhesives, provide an optically clear yet powerful barrier that helps hold glass in place should impact occur.
This film not only provides safety and security in a bomb blast, but also protects accidental damage (protecting young children especially), danger from wind borne debris in hurricanes etc, and seismic tremors.
Our bomb-blast window film is also ideal for use in high-traffic areas with windows or other surfaces vulnerable to "smash-and-grab" theft, vandalism or essential protection from rioting.
We can layer this film with other films, to provide excellent Solar/UV protection;reducing heat, glare and fade on top of the security of the Bomb-Blast window film.
Reduce the Cost of Graffiti Removal
Many cities in the world are experiencing the growing problem of vandals tagging glass and other surfaces in public places using mechanical etching tools, acid, and paint. Anti-graffiti window film, also known as sacrificial film, is now the front-running solution to cost-effectively mitigate damage. These specially designed films, nearly invisible once installed, provide a removable, sacrificial surface that can reduce or eliminate the need for expensive glass replacement. A single replacement of just one window can easily exceed ten or twenty times the cost of film installation.
Simply Remove the "Tagged" Film
Whether they are applied to vertical or sloped glass, or mirrors or stainless steel, in shopping centres, on buses, in office buildings or on the underground, installation and replacement by professionally trained staff is quick and easy, avoiding the disruption caused by window replacement. When vandals strike, the film is simply removed along with the tags, revealing the unspoiled glass surface ready for the replacement sacrificial film.
Manifestations (Safety Spots)
Manifestations can be used where ever you need to draw attention to glass, wether its at home or work, from partitions, patio doors, children's rooms etc. We have a choice of designs and colours, that can be used for safety or decorative purposes. It is a legal necessity to ensure that all large areas of glass are made clearly noticeable, most significantly in corporate buildings or public areas, and employers are required by law to take the steps to ensure the safety of staff and the public alike.
The highest risk areas are:
- Doors, especially near to door handles and push plates
- glass panes surrounding doors
- low level windows (children are especially vulnerable)
- glass partitions or screens which are at shoulder height
- glass partitions or screens at low level (protection for the disabled under the Disability Discrimination Act - DDA)
Regulation 14 and the use of Manifestations
“Windows, transparent or translucent surfaces in walls, partitions, doors and gates should, where necessary for reasons of health and safety, be made of safety material or be protected against breakage. If there is a danger of people coming into contact with it, it should be marked or incorporate features to make it apparent".
Here are some requirements highlighted in Regulation 14 regarding glass doors and partitions and the use of manifestations:
- They are clearly defined with manifestation on the glass at two levels, 850 to 1000 mm and 1400 to 1600 mm above the floor, contrasting visually with the background seen through the glass (both sides from inside and outside) in all lighting conditions.
- Manifestation takes the form of a logo or sign at least 150 mm high (repeated on a glazed screen) or a decorative feature such as a broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50 mm high. Can I see out
- Glazed entrance doors, where adjacent to, or forming part of a glazed screen, are clearly differentiated from it by the provision of a high contrast strip at the top and on both sides.
- Glass entrance doors, where capable of being held open are protected by guarding to prevent the leading edge constituting a hazard.
