Glass Gard Car Window Film Galashiels, Scotland

Glass Gard

While glass windows in today's homes and offices buildings provide a necessary function and aesthetic appeal, they can become extremely dangerous, even deadly, when shattered or broken panes transform into flying "shards" of glass. Natural hazards, accidents and crime all pose potential risks to most glass systems existing today.

Fortunately, there is a preventative solution that can greatly reduce the risk of human injury and property damage – GLASS-GARD.

The installation of GLASS-GARD safety and security film offers protection to people and property.

The durable polymer film construction and tough adhesive bonds to glass, creating a functional "Safety net" that holds glass in place at impact. By utilizing a unique technology in its development, many of our GLASS-GARD films meet the rigorous standards established by the Dade County Small Missile Test, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the American National Standards Institute, European Safety Standards and numerous other safety test standards all over the world.

Engineered with powerful adhesives, GLASS-GARD is a thin, clear, polyester film which is laminated to the interior surface of your windows or doors. When professionally installed, this clear product provides lasting protection that you can't even see. However, GLASS-GARD is also available in tinted and metallized versions offering added benefits such as increased privacy, protection from glare and ultraviolet light, reduced energy consumption and a uniform appearance to your home or building.

During hurricanes and tornadoes, safety research indicates that security film can saves lives and reduce property damage by preventing flying objects from penetrating windows. Additionally, earthquake studies confirm that home or office structures that include security film can substantially reduce the hazard of flying and shattered glass, a major source of injury.

Human Threats

Unfortunately, crime and vandalism are part of our everyday life. Personal safety and property are exposed to the expanding levels of risk associated with "Smash and Grab" robberies and other more dangerous illegal acts. Safe Plus films provide a much needed deterrent to vandals and thieves. Even after being smashed, security film will help hold glass panes on place and prevent easy entry.

Most people are unaware of the high number of injuries and fatalities caused by flying glass, that’s why Safety and Security films are used by many governments, businesses and homeowners around the world for protection.

Safety & Security films are advocated by many non-profit consumer safety organizations as an effective way of protecting against glass-related injuries. Whether you are concerned about sustaining damage from a natural disaster, dealing with the unexpected danger of a terrorist attack, or simply wanting some protection against criminal activity, GLASS-GARD Safety & Security films will work for you.

Accidental Damage 

A variety of glass window accidents occur in the home every year, a lawnmower propels a rock, a stray cricket ball strikes an unintended target, a toddler falls against a bay window. The Installation of the proper safety film can keep these minor accidents from becoming a medical emergency.

In the Industrial community, explosions have broken windows and propelled flying glass shards up to eight miles away from the blast! Safe Plus films help protect nearby homes and buildings in the event of such catastrophes.
