NATIONAL GRID – SAFETY WINDOW FILM CASE STUDY
This Safety Window Film Case Study
is an excellent example of the extensive experience and expertise GUARDIAN offers in the vitally important area of safety in the workplace
GUARDIAN has been carrying out regular fully indemnified glazing risk assessments at all NATIONAL GRID properties throughout the UK for more than 15 years. The risk assessments check all glazing in critical areas of the workplace in accordance with the Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992 – Regulation 14
Any non-compliant glazing is then coated with Guardian Safety Window Film (tested and approved to EN12600 2B2 and BS6206 Class B) to bring it up to the required safety standard.
Our fully qualified risk assessors also take into account local site specific risk factors at each individual property to ensure that the client fulfils duty of care.
The National Grid properties are spread far afield from Fergus in NE Scotland, Pembroke in West Wales, Gorleston in Norfolk, to Indian Queens in Cornwall.
CRITICAL AREAS OF GLAZING
SAFETY WINDOW FILM PRODUCT RANGE
The GUARDIAN Safety Window Film range is available in thicknesses from 50 microns to 350 microns. A 50 micron thick safety window film (tested and approved to EN12600 3 and BS6206 Class C) applied to glass which is not in a door or a door side pane would render the glass compliant. It would also render glass in a door or a door side pane compliant provided the glass width was less than 900mm. In all other cases, 100 microns thick safety window film (tested and approved to EN12600 2B2 and BS6206 Class B) renders the glass compliant with the regulations. The product used in this case study is 100 microns thick.
Our safety window film is made from clear polyester with a pressure sensitive adhesive and a scratch resistant coating. It is also available in reflective, semi reflective and other tinted variations to provide additional solar control, anti glare and privacy benefits if required. These combined versions of the safety window film are only marginally more expensive and the extra cost is often recovered in saved energy costs within a short payback period. ALL of our window films stop almost 99% of ultraviolet light to protect the skin and reduce fading in furnishings and fittings.
