Can Safety Window Films help prevent wired glass incidents?

dangerous wired glass

Wired glass was an excellent idea in its day, often being called Safety glass. But when broken, the glass within tends to cause severe injury. The unfortunate part is this type of glass is use extensively throughout schools and other public buildings.

To deem it safe though safety or security window films need to be applied to both sides. We feel that a minimum of 8mil clear film installed both sides, having a break Puncture Strength of 170 lbs or above should be applied to increase the safety aspect of this glass. Such film should be mounted under the window stops if possible or edge chalked using appropriate structure silicone.

Installation of Safety and Security Window Film may assist in keeping glass related injuries and lawsuits to a minimum by holding broken glass pieces and shards together.
