Why use Window Film?

Window Film is a retrofit upgrade that is generally installed to flat glass in existing buildings.

Window Film is clear or tinted and applied professionally to the glass surface of windows in vehicles and buildings to promote personal and property protection. Beyond its protective qualities, Window Films also come in many shades and colours to provide aesthetic enhancements, as well.

There are many types, grades, shades, colours and thicknesses of Window Films available today. Window Films are a retrofit upgrade for existing glass that can be used to address a range of problems inherent to glazing, such as: Heat and Glare reduction, Thermal insulation, UV Filtration, Safety and Security, Privacy, Decoration, Graffiti protection

Window Films are an extremely cost-effective method to reduce heating and cooling costs in existing buildings by reducing the amount of heat transfer through glazing

Using Window Film in your home, commercial buildings, and vehicles helps to protect you and your property from the damaging effects of the sun. Over time, the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays contribute to the fading of interior furnishings, fabrics, artwork and flooring and can cause uneven or very warm temperatures within a building or vehicle. The sun can also damage your skin, and its glare can cause eyestrain. What is more, Window Film can hold shards of broken glass together in the event of an accident, vandalism, or break-in.

What can be achieved through the use of Window Film?

  • UV Reduction – meaning a reduction fading
  • Solar Heat Control/Reduction
  • Solar Glare Control/Reduction
  • Privacy – one way or total privacy (from both sides)
  • Light Reduction
  • Increased Safety
  • Health & Safety Compliance
  • Increase Security
  • Visual Security

So, rather than suffering with irritating glare during Autumn Winter & Spring, or rather than changing your glass, why not consider the use of Window Film? Our wide range Window Films means we can specify a solution to suit your needs. Upgrade your existing glass with Sureguard Window Films® rather than changing it.

Our range includes Standard MOD Approved Clear Security Window Films and Combined Privacy/Solar Control variants to achieve the very highest performance through the latest technologies.

Does Your School Need to Check its Glazing?

school

Head teachers have been instructed to inspect the safety of their school glazing, after a pupil was injured when her hand went through a glass panel that was not protected by Window Film.

The incident at Valley Primary School, in west Norwich, happened on the 28th of April. According to the information Norfolk County Council sent to all schools, the girl had suffered “significant cuts to her hand and forearm as result of running into a fire door and her hand going through a glass panel.”

The bulletin said a sticker on the glass panel in the door indicated that a Safety Window Film, which would have prevented the glass from shattering, had been applied, but it later turned out it had not.

A council spokesman has said: “We are pleased to report the pupil concerned is now back at school.”

The council reported the incident to the Health and Safety Executive, the inspector Paul Carter said: “Given the nature of the incident, which did not meet the incident selection criteria, the internal investigation, and action taken to re-inspect the glazing throughout the school to ensure it was correctly filmed, and an investigation was not required.”

The council bulletin, sent out earlier this month, said “all schools must check their glazing in critical areas”.

We can help…

Sureguard Window Films® can strengthen existing windows, improving safety –  Clear External 100 micron Safety Window Film SUCL100 External & or Clear Internal 100 micron Safety Window Film SUCL100.

Velocity Tower, Sheffield

In September 2015, Sureguard Window Films® was appointed Principle Contractor of a large project in Sheffield at Velocity Tower.

The scope of works was to upgrade the existing Toughened glass with Clear Safety Window Film to protect the glass in the event of a breakage or spontaneous combustion. With 2k of glass panels to be removed, treated with Window Film and then reinstated in just 12 weeks.

The External Clear Safety Window Film used was from Solargard.

The project involved Sureguard Window Film® being on site at least 5 days a week in a site based office to run a safe working site while the building continued to function as a 21 story residential tower housing over 200 residents and 2 businesses.

Other contractors appointed by Sureguard Window Films® were Rowland Scaffold whom, provided a Crash Desk at the foot of the building and Evander Glass & Locks whom exchanged the glass via a team of Rope Access Operatives.

During our time on site, there were no incidents to report and the a HSE visit found, ‘nothing to report’.

What are the benefits of Window Film?


What are the benefits of Window Film?

Solar Control Window Films can block as much as 80% of the solar heat coming through glass into a building, thus decreasing the heat load on air conditioning system and reducing energy costs.

Window Films can be darker for glare control or privacy purposes or appear almost totally clear, depending on the required building and customer needs. Safety, Security Window Films and Solar Control Window Films offer up to 99% UV protection as a standard feature.

Safety and Security Window Films works when glass breaks, controlling the post-break behaviour of the broken fragments, generally by holding the pieces together attached to the Window Films.  This may greatly enhance the safety of building occupants and protection of furnishings/interiors from damage caused by broken and/or flying glass pieces. These products can be used to bring unprotected glass up to certified safety standards for impact by objects and humans; enhanced blast protection, such as from a chemical explosion; and other events that create hazards from broken glass.

Decorative Window Films can be used to make standard glass look like frosted, etched, or patterned glass in colours or in white or black matte looks, enhancing aesthetics and privacy.
