Safety Window FilmsWould you prefer a window with the potential to explode into a thousand jagged pieces of glass and lets people fall through it? Or one which holds together shattered glass and acts as a last step safety barrier?

It’s not hard to guess the answer, but the huge cost and disruption of replacing every pane of glass in a workplace with shatterproof or toughened glass can make it an impossibility to even consider; our safety window films provide an elegant solution meeting all relevant standards and coming with a full manufacturers warranty.

Safety window films:

  • Recommended by local authorities across the UK
  • Enhanced glass strength reduces risk of breakage or falling
  • Holds shattered windows together eliminating flying glass risks
  • Fast, safe and simple clean up
  • Enhanced safety for high rise offices, projectile environments or child minders and crèches

Safety Window FilmsOur team can carry out a full survey checking your property against legislation like Regulation 14 and can advise you on the best way to fully comply and where films can be applied most effectively.

Installation is surprisingly non-disruptive; you can carry on your business largely unaffected by our team who will need no more than a few minutes access to each window area to apply and quality check each film for bubbling, fingermarks, hairs or creases.

Although the films are strong enough to hold windows together, they’re still very easy to replace in the event of vandalism or other damage; or consider combining the film with products like our anti-graffiti film to make your property maintenance even simpler.

Whatever your window safety requirements you can trust in the specialists at UK Solar to advise and deliver; contact us today to speak to one of our knowledgeable team and arrange a full survey and quotation.

Regulation 14

The key document in question is the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. Within that legislation lies Regulation 14 which requires employers to ensure that glass within critical locations throughout their premises have been fully risk assessed to ensure it qualifies as impact-safe or safe-breaking and clearly marked with manifestations.

Regulation 14Every piece of critically located glass in walls, partitions, doors and gates is affected, and as is often the case failure to comply can meet with litigation, however the wording of the regulation is complex and can be very difficult to interpret for anyone not dealing with it on a very regular basis.

We can apply clear safety film to existing windows to ensure they comply with regulation 14.

It’s a minefield that catches many victims and the only way to be sure you’re compliant and properly protecting your staff and customers is to utilise professional help; we carry out full Regulation 14 surveys advising you on your compliance levels and what we can do to help you improve.
