British Safety Standards – BS6262
BS6262 British Standard sets out guidance on the use of Safety Window Film on glass and glazing within buildings.
Designers and architects have to pay particular attention to the use of the areas where glass is to be installed.
Do the activities present a greater risk of injury through impact with glass?
Examples could include:
Gymnasiums – High level of activity
Swimming Pools – Increased risk of slipping etc.
Although these references primarily relate to new build projects, refurbishments or changes in use present similar safety concerns.
In order to reduce the project costs but increase future safety it is possible to apply Safety Window Film to existing glazing, upgrading the glass in-situ to a recognised and acceptable safety impact performance standard.
