Emergency Glazing Film Is A Stress-Free Short-Term Solution

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

Not all Window Film is necessarily designed for months or years of use, and nor is that always desirable. Sometimes, it is convenient and cost-effective temporary film that best suits an end user’s requirements, as our trusted emergency glazing film here at Stockfilms demonstrates.

Why would you need emergency glazing film?


This is the term used for window film that is applied on a temporary basis to broken glass, to help to ensure no shards of glass fall out and pose a safety hazard to anyone nearby. Such film also prevents the glass from cracking any further when it is being removed from the frame and replaced.


Our own Emergency Glazing 175 – so-named because of its 175-micron thickness – is a clear polyester window film that comes on a paper liner, meaning the user can trim the film to the necessary size before fitting it to the glass to ensure the neatest appearance.


The clear polyester nature of this film preserves visibility through the window and allows light to continue passing through. It also provides a certain amount of waterproofing, in addition to being a more visually appealing temporary solution than a boarded up window.


How to make the most of this easy-to-use film


One of the other key benefits of this window film is that no specialist training or tools are required to apply it to glass after breakage. However, it is vital to take care when fitting it, in recognition of the dangerous nature of broken glass.


To that end, users of this Automotive Window Films – whether they need to apply it in a school, office, shop, hospital or other public setting – should first ensure that the frame is clean. If the pane is small, they can pull the film off the roll, cut it to size and stick it directly over the breakage. For larger panes, however, the user is advised to peel a few centimetres off the roll and stick it to the top of the frame, before pulling down over the breakage and trimming off to the desired length.


While it is also important to smooth the film onto the glass so that it sticks, users are advised against applying too much pressure, especially where jagged breaks are involved.


Could this be the emergency window film that perfectly suits your own organisation’s requirements? If you suspect the answer is ‘yes’, get in touch with the Stockfilms team today – by calling 020 8441 0449 or emailing sales@stockfilms.co.uk – to request a competitive quote.
