About Safety Window Film

Safety Window Film from Sureguard Window Films® is used to protect glass in all locations (doors, windows, curtain walling etc) which are not made from safety glass. Safety Window Film, is a self adhesive transparent film that imparts strength to the glass and in the event of a breakage prevents glass from shattering. It can also be used on windows, coffee tables or any glass surface.

Safety Window Film are designed to improve the safety performance of existing glass. Professionally installed, they have been tested to BS6206 Class B and are used throughout commerce to upgrade existing “non-safety” glass to the requirements of Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992.

Although these films are normally supplied as a clear material, options are available to combine solar control and privacy with safety performance in one Window Film.

Current Building regulations and Health & Safety Legislation calls for glass within certain areas (Critical Locations) to meet a minimum IMPACT safety performance standard. This standard is BS EN 12600.

Whether the glass is broken through impact, building movement, vandalism or weather conditions, safety Window Film provides a barrier to fragments of glass breaking free thus enhancing employee, worker and child safety.

The risk of initial and subsequent injury is dramatically reduced enabling a safe and quick clean up process afterwards.

Glass Safety Window Film

Recognised as a highly effective method of improving the safety of glass, Safety Window Film is recommended and endorsed by local authorities for use by child minders in order to protect children under their care against glass related injury.

Installation includes marking each pane of glass with an approved identifier clearly stating that the combination of glass and Window Film satisfies the requirements of BS6206 – BS EN 12600.

Customers fitting their own Safety Window Film will not be offered a “compliance” marking for them to fit themselves as this is a false statement intimating that the film has been professionally installed by the company. Sureguard Window Films® will not supply “compliance” marking under any circumstances to any third party.
