Window Film Case Study: The Broxbourne School
Having had their glass inspected and upgraded back in 1999, the Facilities Manager became aware of the importance of monitoring the glazing within the school due to changes in regulations over the years.
Solartek were called in to carry out a Workplace [Health, Safety & Welfare] Regulation 14 Glass identification survey.
After testing every pane of glass within this glazing law, over 200 sq mts of glass was found to fall foul of the safety standard required. The original safety film that had been applied was old, dilapidated and out of warranty.
Solartek upgraded all the glass that needed upgrading over the course of the Easter Break, applying their 100 micron safety film and EN12600 kite mark sticker.
We realised the importance of monitoring the safety of our glass and we were shocked at the amount of glass that did not meet the safety glazing laws, despite an upgrade ten years previously. Luckily this film has a ten year warranty, so our glass will be safe for many years
