Anti-Shatter film holds dangerous shards in place when the glass shatters.
Class A window film is known as bomb blast film and upgrades your glass to Class A (see our section on relevant regulations below). Class A is usually only used in a high risk terrorist or crime area, or where there is a risk of explosion, for example near a petrol station.
Our 100 micron film, FILM007, upgrades to CLASS B and is usually adequate for institutional buildings, workplaces, child nurseries and creches. It is also suitable for residential applications.

It is a legal requirement to have all relevant existing glazing made impact-safe and be so marked.
In addition the Building Regulations BS 6262 Part 4, Safety, Human Impact states that:
- Every window or glazed area in a wall, partition, door, or gate shall be of safety material or be protected against breakage -ie, it should not break on impact or should break safely.
- Safety glazing material must meet BS 6206 Class B in doors and side panels over 900mm wide, and Class C in those less than 900mm wide. Low level glazing must meet a minimum of BS 6206 Class C.
- This entails the use of laminated, toughened or safety-wired glass, or plastic glazing sheet that meet BS 6206, or glass with plastic film applied so that the pane of glass with the film meets BS 6206 Class A or B.
- Existing glazing must also be appropriately marked or featured so as to make it apparent and thus avoid the risk of collision because it is not properly visible.
- In particular, large uninterrupted areas of glazing where people might reasonably think they can walk straight through.
Which glazing is affected?
'Critical locations' is the term given to describe of internal and external walls, doors and partitioning which are of primary concern in terms of glazing safety. These areas are depicted here and described in the two categories below:
Critical locations are:
Between the finished floor level and 1500mm (shoulder height) above that level in doors, and in side panels which fall within 300mm of either edge of the door.
Between the finished floor level and 800mm (waist height) above that level in the case of walls, partitions and windows.
It is important to note that any part of a glass pane affected must meet the requirements in its entirety and not just in the relevant section.
