Glass Safety Film for Windows & Doors

When it comes to glass, safety is always a concern especially in busy public areas or when children or pets are concerned. Our safety window films products are designed to mitigate the risks of injury as a result of broken glass, or accidental collision with glass. 

Our Clear Safety Window Film is ideal to upgrade existing glass which doesn't meet safety requirements. It can be used in public buildings like schools and hospitals for instance, but also for added peace of mind in your home. It is therefore popular with home owners with young children or pets, and can be used on large floor to ceiling windows, or glass table tops for example.

Our thicker 175 Micron safety film, also known as Bomb Blast Film, is designed for large panes of glass on public buildings where there might be a threat of vandalism, or the risk of an explosion (near a factory for instance). The window film is designed to prevent the glass from shattering and causing further damage or injury. 

We also offer a combination Safety Reflective Film for added heat and glare control. The film has anti shatter and glass protection quality, and comes with a mirror finish to keep excess heat and glare at bay, as well as UV rays which cause fading of furnishings and carpets.

Workplace Health & Safety: Regulation 14

If you are concerned about health and safety related to the glazing in your workplace, it is important that you consider the requirments from Regulation 14. It stipulates that transparent or translucent surfaces in doors, gates, walls and partitions should be of a safety material, or be adequately protected against breakage.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is glass safety film?

    Safety window film is a self adhesive polyester film which allows you to laminate your own glass on windows and doors for added protection and safety. Safety film is thicker than normal window film and is designed to hold broken glass together in case of accidental breakage, for added glass protection in your home or business. The safety window film is completely clear and therefore doesn't affect the appearance or the view through the glass. Once the film is applied to a glass window or glass door, curing time is around 24h depending on the external temperature.

  • Where can safety film be used?

    Glass protection window film is mostly used on windows and glazed doors, but can also be used on glass table tops, cabinet doors, or any glazed areas in critical areas. Safety film is widely used to upgrade existing glass to meet health and safety standards in public buildings like schools and hospitals, offices and business premises (Regulation 14 of the Workplace Regulations 1992). Applying safety window film is much more cost effective than replacing the glass in your windows and doors with tempered or toughened glass, making it an environmentally friendly option.

  • How do you apply glass safety film?

    The process of applying self adhesive protective film to glass is very simple and very straight forward product to use, especially on smaller panes of glass. All you need is soapy water and a stiff squeegee. Take a minute to watch our video tutorial.

  • Does safety film really work?

    Our safety films are manufactured to EU Standards and therefore will fulfill the purpose they were designed for which is mainly to avoid broken glass from hurting people. Once broken, the glass is held together by the film, allmost ike a giant sticker, for added glass security and safety. Safety films are an affordable alternative to replacing the glass on your window or door with safety glass, laminated or toughened glass.

  • Does bomb blast film make the glass bullet proof?

    No it doesn't. There is to our knowledge no type of window film which will make glass bullet proof. Bullet proof glass is factory made with layers of toughened glass interspersed with layers of thick clear film, so not something that can be recreated with DIY products at home or in your place of work. Bomb blast film is a 175 micron clear window film used mainly for where window protection is a security requirement, on larger panes and in public areas with increase likelyhood of breakage due to criminal activity for example.
