Blast Mitigation Case Study

This Blast Mitigation Window Film Case Study looks at a project delivered by Guardian for Carillion at the BP Headquarters in Sunbury.

Blast Mitigation Case Study

The Challenge

The installation was an integral part of the Carillion project which involved demolishing the original headquarters buildings and replacing them with state of the art new buildings featuring large areas of structural glazing to provide a light and airy working environment. This included a glazed link between two of the buildings.

The Solution

The Blast Mitigation Window Film was applied to four new buildings and totaled over 100,000 square feet.

STATE OF THE ART NEW BUILDINGS

The installation was an integral part of the Carillion project which involved demolishing the original headquarters buildings and replacing them with state of the art new buildings featuring large areas of structural glazing to provide a light and airy working environment. This included a glazed link between two of the buildings.

As can be seen from the images, a great deal of imagination went into the design of these wonderful new buildings. It was quite an experience for our installation team to see the whole site developing around them as they progressed from one building to the next applying the Blast Mitigation Window Film.

SPECIFICATION

The client specified 175 micron thick single ply clear blast mitigation window film for the project. The film has a scratch resistant coating and also rejects 99% of ultra violet light.

BLAST MITIGATION WINDOW FILM RANGE

There is an extensive range of Blast Mitigation Window Films to choose from. The first priority is to have a clear understanding of the threat to be addressed. Next, decide the level of protection you wish to provide. Now, a decision can be made on the correct specification for the project. This could be a Blast Mitigation Window Film ranging in thickness from 100 microns to 350 microns. The thickness selected will be determined by the location, thickness and area of the glass to be treated. This will often mean using more than one thickness of film on a project.

 

MECHANICAL ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS

Sometimes, the level of threat and the protection required might call for the film application to be supplemented by a Mechanical Anchorage System. There are a variety of Mechanical Anchorage Systems available to meet the specific needs of every situation.
