Safety film is a clear, 4ml thick sheet of polyester that is laminated to existing glass which is currently failing to meet Australian standards.
Most older houses, schools or daycares will have sub-standard glass that should be made safe to minimise the risk of serious injury.
Safety film is a cheaper, less intrusive option to removing and replacing old glass, so much so that both the Victorian and NSW government opted to use this approach in every high school/ primary school to bring all glass within the Human impact zone (HIZ) up to Australian standards.
Once the film is applied and has cured it prevents the glass from turning to shards upon impact.
If you have little ones running around and are concerned about any of the glass in your home, get in contact and we can come and do an assessment.
Security film is a thicker version of safety film ranging from 6-12 mil. Its purpose is to re-enforce windows and therefore boost the security of the home or workplace in the event of a break in.
Applied to the glass and, where possible, caulked in with silicone to the window frame providing two anchor points, the film dramatically increases the time it takes to break through the glass. The increased time spent and noise made means that alarms will have been more likely raised, and would be assailants more likely to leave rather than successfully breaking in.
