Wet Glaze Anchoring System & SafetyShield Window Film
Bomb-blast mitigation & intrusion deterrent window film Wet Glaze anchoring system
When applied in conjunction with Madico SafetyShield window film, the patented Wet Glaze anchoring system provides a cost efficient way of delivering high level anti-intrusion and bomb-blast mitigation.
The Wet Glaze system sees a triangular bead of structural silicone added to the joint between the safety film and the window frame. It is designed to absorb and disburse the energy that the glass is subjected to, transferring the reduced load across the entire glazed opening.
The recommended sealant for this installation is Dow Corning 995 structural silicone sealant, which is used as it is proven to provide the best possible performance.
The installation of the sealant is critical to the performance of the system, with an incorrect installation compromising the effectiveness, so with this in mind it is vital that the fitting is undertaken by an approved member of the MSPP programme such as The Window Film Company.
Safety, Security and blast mitigation is a serious issue and it is of vital importance that the correct solution is provided for each individual set of circumstances. These can vary due to the type of building, the design of the windows and the type of threat faced, so we always recommend contacting us directly to discuss your specific situation. The Window Film Company has a team of experts who have been specially trained to deliver advice on the usage of these systems, so to learn more about the best course of action for your particular project, please call us on 01494 797808 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When it comes to blast mitigation, a risk assessment is always an important part of the process. By carrying out such an assessment, it is possible to identify the type of threat and possible results, enabling us to make the most appropriate suggestion for your situation. If you haven't had a professional risk assessment, The Window Film Company can arrange for one to be completed by an industry expert.
