Safety & Security Window Tinting
Safety Protective films are highly effective anywhere glass breakage poses a threat – homes, commercial buildings, retail stores, government buildings and even cars. These thick films are designed to provide a “safety net” from dangerous broken glass and flying shards by bonding to the glass and holding it in place if it breaks. Security films are available in a variety of thickness constructions depending on the level of protection needed. Choose between undetectable clear films or several shaded solar control options if added sun protection is desired.
Safety window tinting will being your glass up to standards to meet AS1288 requirments.
Australian Standard AS1288 covers all installations of glass that might be prone to accidents (eg sliding doors, low windows or glass near playgrounds etc).
Glass covered by this standard MUST be Grade A safety glass (and in some situations Grade B Wired glass) in order to comply with the standard.
Specifically, safety glass (safety film) is required under AS1288 in the following situations
- Low Level Glass in Residential Buildings – Grade A safety glass required where the lowest sightline is less than 500mm from the floor.
- Schools, Early Childhood Centres, Aged Care Buildings, Retirement Villages and Nursing Homes – Grade A safety glass is required within 1000mm of the floor in schools and within 1500mm elsewhere.
- Areas Subject to High Risk Of Breakage – Gymnasiums, Swimming and Spa Pools, Halls, Public Viewing Galleries, Stadiums etc have a Grade A safety requirement
- Doors and General Application – All doors and any glazing within 2000mm of ground level of all buildings are considered subject to risk of impact on human safety and have a Grade A safety requirement.
Anti-Graffiti Window Tinting
Anti-Graffiti Film provides a durable invisible barrier that protects glass, metal and other non-porous surfaces from damages caused by graffiti and etching. After it has been installed, a special mounting adhesive allows the film to be peeled off—taking with it any painted or etched graffiti. Anti-Graffiti Films can be used on public transport windows to help reduce costs of glass damage. They can also be used in public bathrooms on the mirrors to prevent scratching in the glass. These anti-graffiti films are commonly in large shopping center bathrooms. They are virtually invisible to the naked eye.
