Safety Window Film – Taking Security to a New Level

There can be little doubt that glass can be a fragile and potentially dangerous material, which presents a significant chance of injury and secondary damage when broken. Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 states that glass in risk critical locations must meet specified safety standards, and through the application of specialist safety window film from WF Glazing Protection, you can be certain to receive an efficient and highly effective solution. How Does Safety Window Film Work? Safety window film has been designed to substantially reduce the negative impact of broken glass. If untreated or standard glazing breaks, the shards can fall away from the frame creating an immediate and dangerous hazard. However the application of safety window film helps to hold the broken glass in place to prevent it from causing any further problems. The application of safety film will upgrade glass to safety glass standards, thus ensuring that there will be no need to incur the additional expense of undertaking an expensive glazing replacement programme to ensure health and safety compliance is met.

By applying specialist safety window film, you have the ability to upgrade glass, making it much tougher to break whilst ensuring that even if it does, the glass will break in a way less likely to cause harm. Once applied, the safety film available from WFGP works by placing an additional barrier on the glass helping to provide an additional level of protection against accidental breakage. In the event that the glass does break, the safety window film makes sure it does so in a safe way – holding the broken pieces in place, not allowing them to fall from the frame in jagged pieces; the dangers of which are self-explanatory.
