The Safety And Security Benefits Of Window Film For Salt Lake City Hospitals

Bomb and Bullet Resistance: The chances of a gun or bomb attack on a hospital in Salt Lake City is fairly slim BUT, we also live in a time where this type of violence happens seemingly a random all too often. Preparing for the worst case scenario, like a bomb or gun attack is always a good idea and therefore, should be a consideration for any commercial space–hospitals included.

UV Protection: One of the most potent and harmful hazards to the health of skin and eyes shine right through windows onto patients and staff–UV rays. Window film blocks the detrimental rays of the sun, giving the equivalent of 1000 SPF, while still allowing in natural light which helps patients recover faster.

Accident Mitigation: Slip and falls into glass windows, doors and other glass fixtures at hospitals are very common in hospitals because of the advanced age and poor health of the patients. A way to mitigate the damage done by breaking glass is to have window film applied–which will then act much like tempered safety glass; causing the glass to fracture into tiny pieces and stay adhered to the film.

Natural Disaster Protection: Natural disasters and severe storms happen all the time here in Utah and with them comes a lot of damage. First among these potentially dangerous side effects from natural disasters is–broken glass. It often hurts and kills people during storms. Safety and security window film protects by keeping glass, stuck to the film and within the frame, which stops it from flying around and hurting people–or worse.
