Bomb Blast Window Film – Protection from Terrorism
Did you know that 90% of all injuries in resulting from a bomb blast are caused by flying glass? Glass, responsible for bringing in the beauty of the sun and the benefits of natural light, is the weakest link in your building…and the first priority you must secure in order to make your buildings as safe and secure as possible.
==> Security window films are designed to hold glass together in the event of an explosion to reduce the injuries caused by broken glass.
The majority of injuries from an explosion are caused by broken glass which, propelled by the force of the explosion becomes shrapnel. Security window film, also known as bomb blast film, blast protection film and anti-fragmentation film, can reduce the number of injuries caused by flying glass.
Security window films protect building occupants, minimize damage and ensure building continuity.
With what seems like another terrorist bombing in the news just about everyday it’s only wise to take precautions to protect your buildings glazing with high performance security window film. Protecting people and equipment while maintaining building continuity is simply smart emergency planning.
With the threat of attack a very real and serious possibility in cities and society throughout the world today, protecting people and assets alongside business continuity and emergency planning are a matter of priority for us all.
Powerful shock waves from a high-velocity attack emanate in all directions, converting your beautiful glass windows into lethal flying shards of glass. After the explosion your building will be open to the elements and vulnerable to additional damage from weather, thieves and any follow on attacks or disruptions. Internal glazing can be vulnerable as well, with fixed internal glazing or glass partitioning proving to be just as hazardous under severe conditions.
