Why you need safety film for glass doors? Glass is one of the potentially dangerous materials used in the construction of the home. As one safety expert succinctly put it: “If someone tried to introduce ordinary glass onto the market today he would certainly be prevented from doing so by existing safety regulations”.
The world would be a duller place without glass and while everybody knows how dangerous ordinary household glass can be when it shatters, few people are aware of how many accidents occur every year in the household, involving glass doors or windows. In 2010 glass injuries represented approximately 5% of home accidents amounting to a total of 320 000 accidents involving glass, of which nine were fatal. Many were admitted to hospital with injuries ranging from minor cuts to the amputation of fingers to the severing of major arteries and leaving many permanently handicapped (children are twice as likely to be injured as adults).
What’s more, most of these accidents could have been avoided if accident prone areas of glass were secured with Safety Film for doors. The most dangerous areas of a house are patio doors and internal glazed areas – either passage doors or windows and shower doors. Often the glass in these areas is of the ordinary kind, liable to shatter under any sudden impact if they aren’t installed with safety film for glass doors.
When accidents or spontaneous breakage occur, shattered glass fragments can pose great risk of personal injury. Our safety film reduces this risk of injury and helps hold glass fragments in place until they can safely be removed and replaced. Windows are the most vulnerable part of any building’s façade and provide easy points of breakage by wind carried debris, vandalism and other accidents.
