Do you want 24 hour window-break protection in your home?
Did you know that a single square foot of shattered glass can produce almost two hundred razor-like sharp pieces?
Older homes and buildings may have dangerously thin glass windows and door panes that can result in unexpected breakage and possible injury. Left unprotected, thin glass is exposed to shatter from various reasons, from strong wind, hail impact or even bird strikes.
Cleargard Melbourne’s safety glass films are designed to strengthen and improve thin glass, bringing it up quickly to Australian safety standards. Installation of safety film is much less expensive than costly replacement of all your glass surfaces.
The fragility of glass means it can shatter easily, making it a highly dangerous material when broken. Made in Israel to demanding specifications, Cleargard Melbourne’s glass safety film is designed to greatly absorb impact, as well as safely keep broken glass shards together.
Australian Standard AS1288
The Australian Standard AS1288 sets out procedures for determining the glass types and thickness requirements for all buildings. It covers installations of glass that may be prone to accidents, such as low windows or glass near playgrounds. To minimise accidents involving glass in the community, it is stipulated that the glass covered by the AS1288 must be Grade A safety glass to be compliant. In some situations, Grade B wired glass will suffice.
A replacement of glass is not required to comply with the AS1288. Under the AS1288, safety glass film is required in the following situations:
• General Application and Doors – All doors (glazing included) within 2000mm of the ground level of all buildings.
• Low Level Glass in Residential Buildings – Grade A safety glass is required in areas where the lowest sightline is less than 500mm from the floor.
• Areas subject to High Risk of Breakage – The following places require Grade A safety glass; gymnasiums, stadiums, swimming and spa pools, public viewing galleries, halls etc.
• Schools – Grade A safety glass is required within 1000mm of the floor.
• Aged Care Buildings, Early Childhood Centres, Retirement Villages and Nursing Homes – Grade A safety glass is required within 1500mm of the floor.
