Dodgy Glass Warning

Exploding Glass can equal Serious Injury 

  • Caused by invisible contaminated inside toughened glass 
  • Install clear Solar Gard Safety film to minimise risk

This young child was badly injured due to an invisible contamination that could be lurking inside ANY piece of toughened glass in. It can cause the whole pane to explode without warning. Luckily installing clear safety window film to the glass can minimise the risk if it breaks as the film will hold the glass shards and stop the lacerating risk.

Solar Gard Exterior Window Film Dramatically Transforms Medical Buildings


 

All-glass reflective exteriors have been the hallmark of the four-story medical office buildings since their construction in the mid-1980s. Over the years, however, the glazing had started to fail and the window mullions had seriously deteriorated.

With the installation of a Solar Gard external window film, that premium ascetic look has been returned as well as providing solar protection benefits.

Your building can also benefit from having Solar Gard Window film.

The New Zealand distributor of Solar Gard windowfilm  is pleased to announce that Solar Gard is now a member of the New Zealand Green Building Council

Globally Solar Gard Window Film and its parent company Saint-Gobain manufacture products that are friendly to the environment and have a high level of sustainability.

In 2014, Solar Gard achieved an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) certification from UL Environment, encompassing 41 architectural window film products. The EPD is based on a life cycle analysis of the cradle-to-grave impacts of Solar Gard’s products and fulfils the requirements of an ISO-compliant product category rule.

“The decision to become a member of the NZGBC builds on these global strategies and is a logical move in regard to the NZ market. It gives us the opportunity to put the various products and benefits in front of decision makers in a way that gives them confidence that Solar Gard window film can be a solution to a problem for them while also making them aware of the environmental benefits that the product brings” says Mr Ross Eathorne Director of Specialty Window Films, the New Zealand distributor of Solar Gard window films.

Further information can be obtained from the links below and by contacting Eathorne.

'Right now Solar Gard worldwide including the New Zealand operation, are making a concerted effort to reach into those areas of industry where, for one reason or another, business owners have not given any thought to what benefits these products create,' local distributor Ross Eathorne told MSCNewsWire.

'Whilst the Solar Gard window film products are well know what isn't so well appreciated is how energy efficient effective these products are and how this can lead through to improvements on the client's bottom line.

Also many of our products have a role to play on the factory floor. For example metal shield is ideally suited to the operation of this type of machinery improving safety levels and easy replacement.

We are also very proud of our stainless steel film. A real gem that has so many applications. It's easily replaceable, very hard to tell apart from stainless itself, can be UV printed onto for example artwork, logo's, and promotional material. ‘The product can go on just about any flat surface, both inside and outside.

Great also to go on top of existing stainless steel which has been scratched or damaged without having the inconvenience and cost of replacing the sheet.

Why not come through to me with your questions on the stainless steel film and other products in our range The stainless steel film pictured here isbeing applied to a subway system in Los Angeles where there is a high volume pedestrian count so a sturdy graffiti proof product was essential.

A mirrored film that replaces glass

Another interesting new product out of the Saint Gobain/Solar Gard stable is the Mirror Shield product.

Now this application can replace the traditional mirrored surface thus eliminating the “breakage” possibility
and resulting inconvenience. Add to this that advertising can be printed on this surface all of a sudden the space
taken up by thetraditional mirror turns into a “mirrored promotional space” that can be changed out as required
and economically.

You can LINK HERE to the specs sheet and local supplier details or for a product sample call Ross Eathorne on
