GLASS IS YOUR WEAKEST LINK
Safety film offers safety against stone throwing. Stones will not penetrate our safety film.
Protection thrown fire bombs will not penetrate the glass. Reassuring fires are confined to the exterior of the glass.
During the second World War, people stuck crosses of brown papers on their windows to prevent shattering during bomb attacks. Now we use Klingshield safety film, a simple, modern method of achieving the same effect.
At the Carlton Centre, the Information Kiosk was treated with the thinner safety film, 0.5mm – it was the only glass structure intact after the explosion. Although it cracked, it was held together by the film. Colonel Flood, Security Executive of the Carlton Centre, explained why he found it highly effective – “Klingshield’s film has excellent adhesion. It has been tested in London and Belfast in real explosions, and now in Johannesburg”. The adhesion must bond the film and the glass together under all conditions, even explosion. This is the secret of Klingshield’s efficient film protection.
