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.

Relevant regulations

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.

"The film had small permanent indentations in a line across the width evident on the finished panes. The cause of the 'crease' marks looked as though it had been tied too tight during package. A bit disappointing.I would have returned if we did not need it so urgently"

"If this is for your shed, then the product will be excellent, if this will be used on your windows @ home then don't make the same mistake as I did. Not sure what's the problem here but I've done everything as I should[put the foil on quite a few windows/doors i the past actually] - it's impossible to get rid of the washing up liquid solution from under the foil in most of the places[so it looks like there are smears everywhere - problem is - that I had used much lesser amount than they suggest on the website], so now my windows and garden doors looks like dog food, not happy with the product, will remove it probably next year I guess. The foil itself is not affecting the window transparency much. Additional pair of hands may be needed if you're applying it on bigger surface. Absolutely unhappy with the product."

"The film is rather stiffer than I expected, a bit like the plastic trays that croissants etc come in. Some of my windows are a little uneven, so I would probably have been better off with the thinner film, which may have stuck better, making up for it not being quite as strong."
