Security Films for Smash & Grab, Intruder, Riot, War-zone etc

Safety, Security & Glass Protection Films

Smash & grab, intruder and violent attack on ground level windows such as occurs in rioting, can be sudden and unprovoked risks to your personnel, premises.and contents.

For this category of risk an Opalux multi-laminate 300micron film should be the minimum specification, although a 200 micron film with an attachment system may be considered, say for jewellers shop window, for greater clarity of vision. Thicker films than 300micron are available where applicable - see below.

For example a 300micron film, or thicker, could be applied to say the ground and possibly higher windows of a building to deter this kind of attack.

The thicker the film specified, the more the optical clarity suffers.  But there are indeed situations where the risk outweighs this factor.  This could occur for example to buildings or vehicles operating in a warzone or in or near a particular high-risk industrial complex or again in a high-risk area under threat of riot or terrorist attack.  A trial sample area is recommended for approval. Also the thicker the film is, the longer it takes to cure, so application needs to be ahead of time.

Accurate selection of film requires specialist knowledge and end-users and specifiers are encouraged to consult Opalux technical department. 

Where appropriate you will be connected to an Opalux approved dealer who can discuss your requirements, visit site if necessary, and provide costings for the film installation.
