Safety Standards 6262 - Safety Glazing.
BS6262 British Standard sets out guidance on the use of safety glazing within
Designers and architects have to pay particular attention to the use of the areas
where glass is to be installed.
Do the activities present a greater risk of injury through impact with glass?.
Examples could include Gymnasiums - High level of activity Swimming Pools - Increased
risk of slipping etc.
Although these references primarily relate to new build projects, refurbishments
or changes in use present similar safety concerns.
In order to reduce the project costs but increase future safety it is possible
to apply Sureguard Safety Films to existing glazing,
upgrading the glass in-situ to a recognized and acceptable
safety impact performance standard.
