Maximum protection glass security film

It is well known that glass fragments are one of the main causes of serious injuries in a blast scenario. Through extensive analysis and testing, GK Solutions has recognised that film alone does not usually provide adequate protection in high threat situations. There is no doubt that window film provides a better level of protection than annealed glass alone, but GK Solutions are able to offer several options that can significantly improve your safety and protection through the installation of their specialised system to your existing windows.

GK Solutions’ website details how their products have been subjected to extensive trials and test programmes by a range of organisations. Their glass protection options provide the highest levels of protection where a retrofit is required and their products are in use by government agencies world-wide in order to protect people and property against the hazards of blast, impact, natural disaster and violent crime.

GK Solutions’ systems provide a far higher level of protection than film alone, by maximising the effectiveness of the security film. They provide a major improvement in window hardening, and are a good solution for protecting against low to medium blast pressures and/or “smash and grab” type crime.

The specialised systems will withstand fire and hold the glass in the frame for many minutes. By keeping the shattered glass intact within the frame, and adhering glass fragments to the film, they deter forced entry, reduce injuries from shards of flying glass, and prevent window panes being propelled into interior spaces and causing bodily harm. In live full scale blast testing trials, GK Solutions’ blast-proofing systems have exceeded GSA level C and D blast levels, providing protection up to 29 psi and 203 psi*msec, out-performing competitors anchoring systems.
