We Can Offer Both Interior And Exterior Film To Help Protect Against Graffitiby Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager
Graffiti on windows is a common urban menace, appearing on not just many buildings, but also the likes of trains, buses and even ferries.
If graffiti is a problem that you are looking to tackle as a specifier, architect, end-user or other customer, you will be pleased to learn that Opalux can provide Window Film that has been specifically designed to stand up to this kind of vandalism.
How does graffiti protection window film work?
The principle behind our Anti-Graffiti Window Films is simple: they consist of an optically clear transparent sacrificial coating that can simply be removed and replaced if the windows on which they are applied are subject to graffiti.
Such a crucial layer enables you to better protect otherwise vulnerable glazing from sustaining the scratch marks that would necessitate the replacement of the entire window.
As you might expect, however, such a window film needs to be of a certain thickness if it is to withstand the level of punishment that windows can sometimes take from graffiti operators, without the underlying glazing itself being damaged.

100 microns is the minimum required thickness of window films when they are purchased specifically to shield windows from the adverse effects of graffiti.
This is why we offer window films in precisely this thickness that have been tested and certified to EN 12600 Class 2B2, and which are suitable for organisations seeking to comply with Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
We do supply thicker films in this category, however, such as the 175-micron SA-175CL-iSR and SA-175CL-eSR films that are designed to be applied internally and externally respectively, as well as the 200-micron SA-200CL-iSR product. These films are sometimes specified if there are concerns about heavy-duty tools being used by graffiti operators.
As for the difference between internal and external films, the latter are routinely used if the inner panel of the window requiring treatment is inaccessible, or in cases of the outer panel of a double glazed unit needing to be upgraded. They are also constructed in a way that enables them to stand up to constant exposure to the elements.
To be sure of selecting the Window Film that is the best match to your requirements, you are advised to contact the Opalux technical department before placing any order – as you can do by emailing email@example.com or calling +44 (0)845 026 1125.
