Clear Safety Window Films

Our Safety window films are a cost effective solutions to protect your property and people from flying shards of glass.  

Commercial property such as high rise buildings, storefronts, galleries,  etc with windows require secure protection to keep employees and visitors safe at all times.

Windows that are fragile may be susceptible to damages caused by strong wind and rain, extreme temperatures, vandals, burglars, debris, accidental explosions, and even flying birds.

Safety window film is a clear protective layering that shields your windows from damages caused by weather or breaking and entering. For instance, if a burglar does break and enter your property, the safety window film holds the broken glass together to keep from shattered glass to fly in all directions, causing further damage . Once this film is applied, should a person intentionally or unintentionally break a window, the shield holds the glass together in one piece to make your clean up process easier. In addition, it prevents any further injuries from broken glass pieces.

Armorcoat® Clear Safety Window Film

Armorcoat® are optically clear safety films that are non-reflective so are virtually invisible on your windows. You maintain the natural appearance of your windows day or night. 

The resilient layers of high-tensile polyester, aggressive adhesives, ultraviolet inhibitors and scratch-resistant coatings provide exceptional impact resistant capabilities – with thicker films offering greater protection. 

Not only do these clear films help hold broken shards in place, the ultraviolet inhibitors help protect your home and business accessories and valuables against fade damage.

The range comes in 4, 7 & 8 mil thickness and works hard to protect.

Armorcoat® clear safety film meets BS EN12600 and BS6206 British Standards and meets all British & European impact testing. 

3M S70 Clear External Safety Window Film

3M S70 Clear External Safety Window Film is designed for use on the exterior surface of windows. It is composed of a transparent and weather stable polyester film, scratch resistant surface and a strong acrylic adhesive. The films high tensile strength and elongation at break point increases resistance of the glazing system to impact and pressure. The film also significantly reduces the transmission of UVA and UVB rays which are the main cause of fading.

3M Safety Films provide effective protection from injuries to persons, or damage to items caused by fragments of broken glass. In the case of glass breakage the fragments are held together by the strong acrylic adhesive. A clear 7 mil safety film that is ideal for areas where interior application is not possible.

3M S70 Clear External Safety Window Film meets BS EN12600 and BS6206 British Standards and meets all British & European impact testing. 

Vandal, Riot & Blast Mitigation Window Film

Unfortunately, we live in a world where vandalism, riots and bomb blasts are a real danger to our safety and security.

Vandalism, riots and bomb blasts turns unprotected glass into dangerous flying shards travelling at speeds in excess of 30 meters per second (> 100 km/h) – making them impossible to outrun and avoid serious injury. Understanding the type of glass in your building is key. It has a direct impact on your level of potential exposure to blast.

‘The use of anti-shatter film may be applied as retrofit measure to mitigate the glazing hazard inside a building as a result of an external impact or blast” (Source: Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, CPNI, UK).

Armorcoat® Safety Window Film and 3M S70 Clear External Safety Window Films are anti-shatter films and are applied to your existing glazing. They create a barrier protecting people inside of targeted building and surrounding buildings. This helps drastically increase your level of protection by reducing the risks of flying glass that can cause devastating severe injuries or even death.

EDGE RETENTION for SAFETY  WINDOW FILM

To provide the ultimate glass protection on your commercial grounds, we can also install attachment & anchorage systems with your safety window film. These systems involve fitting an industry standard sealant that can absorb any strong blows against the window. It not only keeps the glass from breaking everywhere causing potentially irreparable and costly damage, but it also provides glass resistance which keeps the entire window from shattering.

Dow Corning Sealant

Dow Corning® silicone sealant anchors the protective window film to the window frame. A triangular glazing joint provides a sealant bite of 1 – 1.25 cm on both the window film and the framing member. This joint design has performed well in a variety of tests of high-performance window film applications designed to withstand applied forces.

Silicones are specified for their high tensile and tear strength; long-term flexibility; resistance to harsh weather, temperature extremes and ultraviolet light; and excellent adhesion to glass and most window frame materials.

The Dow Corning Sealant has been an effective part of commercial building glass safety following aftermath of severe 1987 UK violent cyclone that occurred on the night of 15–16 October, with hurricane-force winds causing destruction in England. The Dow Corning sealant is available in both black, grey and white option.

 

3M™ Impact Protection Adhesive

3M™ Impact Protection Adhesive is a unique adhesive applied around the frame to bond the glass, window film and frame together. It significantly improves protection against severe weather damage, bomb blast or would-be intruders. Designed for use with 3M™ Ultra Safety and Security Window FIlms, it gives homeowners and commerical building owners more options when considering their desired level of protection. 

3M™ Impact Protection Adhesive can fully cure in less than seven days and is available in both black and white option.

Dapaa Tints - High Performance Window Film Solutions

Glass can be a dangerous material. 

When standard annealed glass breaks, it forms potentially lethal shards and splinters. The reputation for dangerous fragility is however fast disappearing. 

Safety window films add strength and integrity to glass allowing it to be used in areas where safety is critical and in unprecedented situations.

What is SAFETY GLASS ?

Safety glass is defined as glass which must have passed an impact test and either must not break or must break safely (BS EN12600 and BS6206).

There are three levels of impact: C, B and A, ‘A’ being the highest. Each involves the glass being impacted by a leather bag containing 45kg of lead shot. (The test roughly simulates the impact of a child weighing 100lbs [45kg] hitting the glass with varying degrees of force.)

glass protection

The architectural use of safety glass is primarily governed by British Standard BS 6262: Part 4: 1994 – Glazing for buildings – Safety related to human impact. Building owners, tenants/lease holders & site managers must be ensure the glass in critical locations meets Regulation 14.

BS 6262 is a national standard applying to all glazing work, including replacement glazing.

BS 6262 identifies critical locations in general terms only and sets the minimum standards of glazing materials acceptable for use in these areas. 

Additional guidance is also provided by Building Regulations appropriate to the country – ie. Approved Document N for England and Wales, Part V for Northern Ireland and Part P of the Building Standards in Scotland.

Compliance with BS 6262 Part 4 will satisfies the requirements of Regulation 14 of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

The application of Safety & Security Window Films makes your workplace glass into a SAFETY GLASS as classified by BS EN12600 and BS6206. Glass (Shaded in Blue) in doors and side panels to Glass in doors (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and Glass in low level glazing (6, 7, 8). 

glass protection

When installed, safety film holds glass together on impact. Other Films can be applied on top of Safety Films to provide your high performance window film solution. All the areas are EN12600 marked, providing you with peace of mind for safety and legislation.

This film works hard to protect.
