FrameGard™ Anchoring System
This mechanical anchoring system represents a highly effective approach to security and blast mitigation. Specifically created to keep glass within the frame in the event of an explosion or intrusion, the system works by clamping the filmed glass to the window frame.
The system is effective as it incorporates a patented movement zone which allows the film to move, meaning excessive force isn’t applied to the fixings and the frame. This is a bespoke, customised solution that provides the option of precise torque settings, meaning the exact settings required can be applied to each individual installation.
This is an involved system that requires expert installation. Firstly, an application of SafetyShield window film is required. The FrameGard unit is then placed over the film, with a series of screws drilled through the unit and into the window frame, clamping the window film securely in place. A cap is then applied to the unit to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish.
