FOR SECURITY REASONS
SAFETY WINDOW FILMS
When carefully applied to glazing Safety Window Film keeps the glass shards together in the event of breaking the glass surface, preventing it from splashing into small fragments and protecting against damages caused by breaking the glass.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF FILM PROVIDE
DIFFERENT LEVELS OF PROTECTION
Depending on the thickness of the Safety Window Films they can provide different levels of protection. The ticker the film the harder it is to penetrate trough it for the potential cause of breakage.
Two of the most commonly used Safety and Security Window Films are:
PS4 / 100-micron clear safety and security film is used as a minimum specification for safety film. It is suitable for use in many applications in the workplace and home.
PS7 / 175-micron clear safety & security film is used to help comply with current government guidelines for bomb blast protection.
Accurate selection of film requires specialist knowledge and end-users and specifiers are encouraged to consult Windeco technical department. Where appropriate you will be connected to one of our experts who can discuss your requirements, visit site if necessary, and provide costings for the film installation.
FOR ADDITIONAL SAFETY AND SECURITY
An attachment system is a method to help hold broken glass and film in the window frame during an event. The event can be a bomb blast, windstorm or attempted forced-entry. Security film plus an attachment system is also a deterrent to intruders breaking in, rioting or smash-&-grab raid, again by reducing the threat of the whole panel of glass giving way under attack.
One type of attachment system is structural silicone caulking simultaneously applied over the window film and window frame forming a strong bond that helps hold the broken glass and film to the frame during impact.
Internal testing indicates that a window with safety and security film with an attachment system installed approximately doubles the amount of time for an intruder to gain entry compared to a window that has film applied without an attachment system.
