Anti Shatter / Bomb Blast Window Film Installation
Protect Your Employees, Customers and the Public
It's an unfortunate fact these days that bomb attacks are likely in cities throughout the world, but did you know that nearly all (90%) of the injuries caused in a bomb blast are from shattered glass flying through the air?
Glass is used extensively in modern office buildings and represents an additional and serious potential threat to people in the event of a terrorist attack.
The shock waves created in a bomb blast are powerful and will not only blow external windows in but continue inside the building and also destroy glass doors, partitions and other internal glass. Your whole building could become full of deadly shards of flying glass.
The Solution: Anti-Shatter Window Safety Film
This high tensile strength, anti-shatter film will reduce the dangers posed by broken glass and other flying debris, making it far more likely that your building and the people inside it will be safer from serious injury and death, and that your business and property will be affected as little as possible.
We recommend that the safety film is applied to doors, windows, overhead and internal windows.
The film is usually applied to one side of the glass. It stretches without tearing, and can absorb a large part of any shock wave. Even if the glass is blown out it will do so in one piece because it is held together by the film.
Window Safety Film is a quick and cost-effective solution to many problems. It will also provide enhanced protection from accidents and better security as the glass is far harder to get through. Call today on +44 (0)20 8242 4147 to find out more.

Tanker blast 'a terror attack'
An investigation confirmed that a tanker damaged by a blast in the Strait of Homuz had been the victim of a terrorist attack.
The incident bears similarities to the case of the tanker Limburg, which was rammed by a boat packed with explosives off the coast of Yemen in October 2002. Tanker owners naturally remain concerned at any development that could put crew, ship and cargo at risk, and thereby also threaten to interupt the flow of free trade.
