Safety & Security Films



Safety and Security Film from Bristol Glazing


Films Current legislation stipulates that glazing in all non-domestic premises that is deemed to be in a critical location should be made of a safety material. Typically this means to approximately waist height (of an average adult) in all windows and shoulder height in or adjacent to doors. Failure to comply may result in prosecution in the event of an accident, as well as the obvious likelihood of serious injury to the general public or your employees. The option of reglazing all critical locations with laminated or toughened glass will prove to be a very expensive, as well as disruptive operation.





Alternatively, the application of a fully tested Safety Film to the glazing will ensure compliance with the regulations as well as offering the following additional benefits:


• Less expensive with every pane correctly marked

• Existing glazing upgraded in-situ without the disruption of a full reglaze

• Scratch resistant surface to glazing with a factory backed warranty

• Additional Solar Control to reduce heat gain/loss, glare and fading

• Reduces the risk of injury from falling through glass or from flying shards of glass.


Security should also be a major considerationconcerning business or domestic properties, especially in high-risk locations. The application of Film to the inside of windows and doors holds broken glass fragments in place when shattered which will provide the following benefits, thus increasing the security of your property:


• Acts as a post-impact barrier to frustrate the break-in attempts of the opportunist burglar, thus deterring unwelcome visitors

• Protects property, reducing the risk of vandalism

• Reduces the risk of injury from flying shards of glass

• Provides Bomb-blast protection to high risk buildings, reducing the effects of an explosion





Storms. Earthquakes. Chemical explosions. Bomb blasts. Theft. Vandalism. All of these events can cause massive damage to our homes and businesses, and in many cases, can prove lethal.


The addition of films and our safety anchoring restraint systems dramatically improve security for buildings of all kinds. No matter where you are, or what your window protection needs are, Bristol Glazing has the films to fit them.
