Effective Bomb Blast Window Film in London

We were initially established to help protect businesses from the threat of a terrorist bomb blast; unfortunately, the threat of a terrorist attack is still very high and still a big concern. Provided across the South East, including London, our bomb blast safety films protect you and your employees and offer peace of mind when based in a busy city centre like London.

In an explosion, glass particles can travel at the speed of up to 150mph. If a bomb explodes 400 metres away, glass from a broken window can hit a wall five metres away at a speed of 75 metres per second. In this scenario, glass particles of any size are unquestionably lethal. 

In fact, 90% of injuries aren't caused by the explosion itself but by flying glass. This is why it is absolutely imperative that steps are taken to ensure the windows and partitions are sufficiently safe and protected. 

One of the easiest, cheapest and quickest ways to protect against bomb blasts is to install a bomb blast safety window film. By strengthening and reinforcing your existing glass and helping to hold broken glass together in the event of an explosion,  our bomb blast window film greatly reduces the chance of glass causing injury, damage or death. Because the latest films are incredibly flexible and able to stretch, they can absorb a significant amount of the shockwave caused by an explosion.

Working throughout the South East, including London, we specialise in supplying and installing durable, high quality and cost effective bomb blast window film that is proven to work. So call London's experts at UK Solar today on 020 8325 3724 to arrange your property survey and no obligation quotation at your convenience. 

It is your responsibility as an employer to protect your staff and the public around your London premises; if you are based in an area with any kind of bomb blast risk, perhaps near a governmental building or a key transport link, the only sensible decision is cost effective window film protection.

Join companies all over London incorporating bomb blast window films into their disaster recovery plans and speak to our experts today to arrange a detailed survey and quotation.
