Glass Retention Window Films

Protecting Property from Blasts, Intruders and Vandalism

Bomb blast protection and security window film is an established method of protecting staff from flying glass injuries in the event of an industrial or bomb blast, while providing additional security against intruders attempting to enter your premises.

In the event of an impact or blast, the window film will save lives, reduce injuries and protect your property from damage, but the entire pane of glass can break from the window frame under such forces.

When glass breaks lose of the window frame the integrity of the building is compromised, security is breached and the negative pressure phase of a blast can suck sensitive documents out of the building.

Window film edge retention keeps the glass in the window frame, reducing risk to your staff, damage to your property and glass contamination of your stock, while preventing intruders and maintaining security - all helping to keep your business trading immediately after the incident.
