Safety Glass Film

Safety glass film makes glass safer

Safety is one of the primary requirements in applications of glass as a building material in offices, nursing homes, retail stores and industrial complexes. Especially for applications on glass, Glasfolie Suncontrol developed a strong high-tech safety glass film that gives the glass the properties of safety glass; Safety-film.

What is safety glass film?

Safety glass film is a tough polyester film that has a very strong adhesive layer. It gives glass greater strength, making it less likely to break or shatter when pressure is applied.

Safety film increases safety around windows. In the event of explosion or vandalism, the glass film prevents damage and injury that flying shards can cause. In addition, the film has fire retardant properties. Because of its strength and binding ability, Safety-film is also burglary-retardant.
