Safety Window Film for Commercial Windows & Glass

 

Does your commercial outlet, hotel, restaurant or retail outlet windows and doors comply with safety standards and regulations?

 

The application of shatter-proof and safety window film to your windows and door glass can stop serious injuries and save lives.

Litigation in the UK is becoming an increasingly common occurrence and concern for commercial outlets. If a visitor to your retail premises injures themselves, there is an increasingly high chance that you will face some form of legal action and compensation claim, which could be expensive and damaging to the reputation of your business, if you do not professionally install safety window film.

 

Did you know that the Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Guide 1992, "requires employers to ensure that glass within their commercial premises are fully risk assessed and qualifies as 'impact-safe' or 'safe-breaking' and clearly marked with manifestations."

 

Page 29 item 138 also states "When assessing whether it is necessary for transparent or translucent surfaces in doors, gates, walls and partitions to be of a safety material or be adequately protected against breakage, pay particular attention to: a) in doors and gates, and door and gate side panels, where any part of the transparent or translucent surface is at shoulder level or below and b) in windows, walls and partitions, where any part of the transparent or translucent surface is at waist level or below, except in glasshouses where people are likely to be aware of the presence of glazing and avoid contact."

 

This means every piece of glass, including walls, doors, partitions and gates is affected and requires appropriate manifestations applied, in order to comply with health and safety regulations.

 

Regardless of the type, style and classification of windows and doors you have installed in your office space, are you sure that they are 100% safe in any circumstance? If not, commercial safety window and door film should be a viable, affordable option. 

You might be surprised to learn that many commercial properties in the UK have older-style windows, doors and patios that do not comply with many basic safety standards. Even if they do comply with the latest regulations, the safety of window glass in your offices can be significantly improved for modest cost by installing commercial safety window film.

Applying anti-shatter window film to your window glass should be considered as one of the most affordable options, especially for budget-conscious corporate organisations. 

Prism window safety film is created by high tech engineering and include layers of polyester film linked together using several adhesives. The primary purpose of these layers is to build a safety field around the glass and to prevent it from shattering into pieces and causing accidents. The film also provides a high level of privacy and security, using reflective, one-way mirror technology.

Safety window film is available in a completely clear finish as well as in different tints, shades, mirror finishes and colours, with a selection of densities and heat-rejection qualities, choose from:
 

 

 

24 Hour Anti-Shatter Protection for Your Business Property

 

A single square foot of glass shattering can produce two hundred deadly razor sharp fragments.

What might have been a minor accident such as an office glass door slamming might easily cause a very serious injury or even loss of life. Instances where these type of accidents have occurred are common-place, often involving litigation and compensation issues for the companies concerned. Injury prevention is the best form of defence.

Blasts and explosions that occur even a distance away from commercial premises also have the power to cause serious injury and damage to staff and customers. The installation of a blast-resistant film will absorb the blast energy and prevent the glass from shattering into pieces.
