Wiindow Film – Enhancing Glass Performance
Wherever there is glass, there may be a requirement to protect..
Window film installation to your building’s existing glazing is a valuable investment that offers immediate benefits to building owners, property, estates and facilities management teams, without disruption to the activities of your building, its occupants and business activities and notably without the expense and disruption of re-glazing.

Window film will provide you with an immediate, cost-effective solution to many problems associated with glass and glazing, including:

Solar Control

  • Window film reduces the heat entering a building through glass providing a more comfortable working environment and potentially increased productivity.
  • Window film reduces glare without the need for blinds which increase heat, require cleaning and also stop light transmission and the view through your glazing.
  • Window film provides heat gain reduction for comfort control and reduced energy use.
  • Window film can also enhance building aesthetics.
  • Safety and Security

  • Window film increases the safety of your existing glazing in the event of accidental impact, ensuring your compliance with Building and H&S Regulations.
  • Window film increases your security, whilst retaining the benefits of glazing.
  • Window film provides protection in the event of a terrorist attack, bombings and accidental explosions.
  • Window film provides protection in the event of anti-social behaviour, attempted burglary and vandalism.
  • Window film in conjunction with anchoring will provide enhanced security and blast mitigation.
  • Window film in conjunction with anchoring will ensure glass containment in the event of unexpected or spontaneous glazing failure, especially overhead glazing or glazing at height.
  • Privacy, Decorative, Branding and Manifestation Compliance

  • Window film provides increased privacy within a glazed environment.
  • Window film provides a quick and cost-effective solution to glazing graphics and manifestation compliance.
  • Thermal Insulation and Thermal Comfort

    Click here which is the latest guidance to help businesses mitigate the risk of a terror attack and limit the damage an attack might cause, confirms the following:
    EXTERNAL DOORS AND WINDOWS
    “Remember that glazed doors are only as strong as their weakest point, which may be the glazing.
    Many injuries involving explosive devices are caused by flying glass. Glazing protection is an important casualty reduction measure. Extensive research has been carried out on the effects of blast on glass. There are technologies that minimise the shattering effect and therefore reduce the possibility of casualties. Anti-shatter film, which holds fragmented pieces of glass together, offers a relatively cheap and rapid improvement to existing glazing.”
