Glass Frosting Partition & privacy solutions for Hospitals, Dental & GP Surgery, Schools & Care Homes

There are numerous applications for our range of products within Hospitals, Doctors Surgeries, Care Homes, Schools and other similar buildings, for example internal rooms, private areas (meeting rooms, offices, consulting rooms, examination rooms, bathrooms, exterior windows, reception areas etc). We can help you choose from our specialist range of Window Films, to give the most open of spaces that private look and feel.

                       

A vast amount of heat is lost in the winter months through window and glass areas causing central heating systems to work at maximum output. In the summer months, these premises often become unbearable due to the sun's rays penetrating the windows. By simply applying a reflective, clear or tinted solar control film to the exterior windows, heat can be retained by up to 55% in the winter and the heat gain reduced by up to 80% in the summer. Not only that, but anyone will be able to sit in front of the windows and have an improved view as the glare is drastically reduced, also annoying glare will be eliminated on computer monitors / televisions.


Our window films help to drastically lower both heating and air conditioning bills. In fact, most installations pay for themselves within 18 months! And to top it all, that Carbon Footprint saving is enormous.
 

              

Relevant regulations

It is a legal requirement to have all relevant existing glazing made impact-safe and be so marked.

In addition the Building Regulations BS 6262 Part 4, Safety, Human Impact states that:

  • Every window or glazed area in a wall, partition, door, or gate shall be of safety material or be protected against breakage -ie, it should not break on impact or should break safely.

  • Safety glazing material must meet BS 6206 Class B in doors and side panels over 900mm wide, and Class C in those less than 900mm wide. Low level glazing must meet a minimum of BS 6206 Class C.

  • This entails the use of laminated, toughened or safety-wired glass, or plastic glazing sheet that meet BS 6206, or glass with plastic film applied so that the pane of glass with the film meets BS 6206 Class A or B.

  • Existing glazing must also be appropriately marked or featured so as to make it apparent and thus avoid the risk of collision because it is not properly visible.

  • In particular, large uninterrupted areas of glazing where people might reasonably think they can walk straight through.

 

Which glazing is affected?

'Critical locations' is the term given to describe of internal and external walls, doors and partitioning which are of primary concern in terms of glazing safety. These areas are depicted here and described in the two categories below:

Critical locations are:

Between the finished floor level and 1500mm (shoulder height) above that level in doors, and in side panels which fall within 300mm of either edge of the door.

Between the finished floor level and 800mm (waist height) above that level in the case of walls, partitions and windows.

It is important to note that any part of a glass pane affected must meet the requirements in its entirety and not just in the relevant section.
