Recently we were the victims of a freak accident whereby a large trailer ran into the side of our building demolishing part of a wall and four large windows. Were it not for the Klingshield covering on these windows, two offices would have been covered with broken glass and three people would have been seriously injured by shattered glass.  K.G. Henry – Klippon Electricals

This institution has examined a number of proposals for upgrading the quality of glazing in response to the urban terrorist threat. The writer has considerable experience with safety film, both in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Northern Ireland, and having viewed the result of explosion blasts in many different urban environments, it is his considered opinion that safety film is a most cost effective method of adequately protecting glass against explosive shock.
Klingshield S.A. has installed safety film on a large scale, both at the Carlton Hotel and the JSE, to my complete satisfaction, and I am confident that safety film remains the only practical solution to the problem of injuries arising from flying glass resulting from explosive blasts. In this regard I am supported by my colleagues in the South African Security Industry – Manager Security, Johannesurg Stock Exchange

My apologies for not having sent a letter to you earlier, but at this time of the year, time passes quickly and one tends to forget the yesterdays.  There is one yesterday however, that our company has not forgotten and that is the yesterday of July 30th, this being the date when we had the unfortunate experience of a car bomb exploding outside our office window.
At the time when I had your Klingshield installed at our offices I did not release that having or not having Klingshield could mean the difference between being alive or being dead.  There is no question that if we did not have Klingshield my father, sister and other members of our staff would not have been here today.
For this my family and I are eternally grateful – Errol Shuster – Shuster Diamond Cutting Works

It is my pleasure to report on the effectiveness of Klingshield Safety film.  The film was installed on our Harrison Street shop windows.
On the following Sunday, whilst the building across the road was being demolished, a large stone flew against one of the windows and shattered it.  Due to the Klingshield protection the glass held together preventing any shards of glass flying and as no one was on the premises at the time no pilfering could occur.  Sales Manager Russells

Now that the installation of Klingshield to our new Head Office building is complete, I would like to take this opportunity to compliment you on a job well done. The film which has been installed has made a tremendous difference to the glare problems which we were experiencing. Also, I would like to mention that your installation team did a professional job, while taking great care not to do any damage to our new buildingl.  They were quiet and polite and at no time inconvenienced our operation.

Smash-and-grabs rife in Sandton. Sergeant Amanda Roestoff, police spokesperson for Johannessburg, says increasing reports of smash-and-grabs in Sandton are prompting police to issue warnings to drivers to take precautions. This follows an attack in Sunninghill on Friday, when a suspect was shot by a driver after allegedly smashing the window of the car with a spark plug and threatening to kill the driver – Gill Gifford “The Star”

The “air-conditioner” is in fact the tinted film some motorists have had applied to the windows of their cars.  The question in the minds of most people is : does the film prevent heat build-up in the car.
 
We parked two almost identical Toyota Corollas next to each other in the sun in Johannesburg and took temperature readings after an hour.  The results were surprising.  The temperature on the outside was 20 deg c and the temperature in the car with the untinted windows was 60 deg c.  The temperature in the car with the tinted windows was 15 deg c less and registered 45 deg c.
 
On the open road and in city traffic the film cools the interior and helps the upholstery last and look better for longer.  In accidents, injuries are minimized because the glass shards adhere to the film.
 
The film is available in a variety of tints (charcoals, coppers, greys, blues, greens, light-browns, violets and pinks) and is scratch resistant.  The installation of the window film takes about an hour and is done in a sealed workshop to eliminate the problem of dust between the film and the glass.
 
All window tinting has to comply with legal requirements as stipulated in Government Gazette (26/04/1990) – You Magazine

I am writing to congratulate Klingshield on a superb product which was installed on my Toyota during November 2004 by Halfway Toyota (Film type 35% SG). On my return from holiday on 3 January, I was driving near Underberg when we were hit by a massive storm. Hailstones the size of golf balls pelted the car for over 10 minutes. I was unable to pull over off the road and the body of my car was badly damaged during the storm. Throughout the ordeal the hailstones smashed against the front windscreen and it held up very well. I saw other cars with broken front and back windows and yet we were lucky that we could continue in the rain. The repair quote for my car damage was R30 000 and we were grateful that it was not more due to broken windscreens. The product seems to work very well ! – Bruce MacRobert

We have for acknowledgement and thanks for your expeditious and satisfactory application of Klingshield Safety Film to shop windows in Hyde Park Shopping Centre. We would like, particularly, to thank Klingshield for their continuous supervision and the professional manner in which this contract was carried out with minimum disruption to normal business conditions of both clients and shop owners. – Hyde Park Syndicate

Shielding the windows on my car was strongly recommended by a colleague – for the benefit of “cooling” the interior and improving privacy inside the vehicle. Little did I know the best benefit was still to prove itself. Here’s how it happened.
Driving down Rosettenville Road on a business call, at a robot the attacker “happened” appeared out of nowhere. He hit the glass on the front passenger window shattering it in a thousand pieces (this was with a sharp object – rumoured to be a spark plug, held in the palm of his hands). The glass stayed in position, the next two blows with his elbow eventually pierced the shield but gave me sufficient time to recover, get into gear and pull away. The attacker ran off the highway and disappeared amongst the rubble and shrub of the mine dump. My business call was amazed that I got away unscratched with the cell phone still in its holder. “Tell me what you died so I can tell my boss”, she commented. “He has lost three units to date”. It was easy to explain that the shield kept the cracked glass from shattering and dropping out, still offering the protection – otherwise the attacker would have grabbed what he was after and made off. I was able to tape together the cracks in the shield until I could arrange replacement of the window the next day. This additional feature of Klingshield has prompted the Company to consider installation on all Company vehicles. It may save more than just attachments in your car. – N.C. De Vos, Marketing Director
