Bomb blast safety film and blast resistant glass
At Bracknell Glazing Ltd, we highly recommend installing safety film to otherwise non-safety glass. This will bring your existing glass up to the relevant safety requirements. This is especially important if you are going to work from your home looking after children. In this case it is important that all glass windows or doors comply with current legislation. Safety film also gives your glass the longevity by prolonging its’ life.
Delaying the replacement can be an expensive exercise, adding a protective film can help to avoid these replacement costs. Another important safety film worth consideration is bomb blast film. Installing bomb blast protection is a preventative method used to stop glass being thrown through the air in the event of a bomb detonating. This is a good option for businesses who would like to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees and customers.
Without this safety film, in the event of an explosion, glass is propelled through the air at a rapid speed, and may cause severe and fatal injuries, especially in crowded areas. Installing this glass film holds the glass in place, causing it to fall in one large sheet.
This will significantly reduce the chance of casualties caused by flying glass fragments. We are very experienced with high level glazing and offer replacement glass in these high rise buildings and are fully Health and Safety compliant.
Why install this bomb blast protection?
- Holds glass in place
- Reduces the chance of injury
- Shows that your business has taken preventive measures
- Business will return to normal a lot quicker
Bomb resistant glass and blast resistant glass
With the heightened increase of terrorist threats to the UK, we are finding more of our customers are implementing bomb resistant glass and blast resistant glass solutions. As an established Thames Valley business, we have many clients stretching into central London, the local airports, Reading, Slough, Watford, Oxford, Guildford and beyond. They rely on efficient service and trust our experience. Installing a bomb resistant glass is the primary solution. However, bomb blast glass protective films can also be used to restrict the potential harm of glass blasting.
Bomb resistant glass prevents the fragmentation associated with normal glass from shattering and splintering. When a building is subject to an explosive attack, bomb fragmentation is widely acknowledged as the main cause of injury. However it is imperative that the glass is in a blast resistant frame, this ensures that the glass remains intact within the frame. There are many considerations to take into account when choosing the right glass. There are a vast range of differences in the design for specifications for consideration, these include:
- The level of protection required
- Size of potential blast
- The proximity of the blast
- Height of buildings and high level glazing considerations
