In the city, high rise buildings with their beautiful facades can be absolutely breathtaking. With seemingly endless glass windows, these structures always look sophisticated and contribute to the modernity of a city’s or other commercial zone’s skyline.
One question that often comes to mind, though, is this: how is the safety and toughness of these windows and walls guaranteed? Cleargard Australia discusses some of the different ways to protect glass windows:
Many builders use safety films to upgrade normal float glass, meet safety standards, and boost protection. Safety films also hold shards together if ever the glass breaks. This is an additional safety measure that reduces the possibility of injury or death. Ask your builder about different safety films and evaluate their features to know which one is best.
Security films add an additional layer of safety for glass windows of all types. For example, some films undergo a fine cold lamination process which produces a clearer and more flexible security film. This results in an almost invisible finish with added protective qualities to secure glass installations in high rise buildings. Security films prevent forced entries, smash and grabs, and invasions from happening.
Of course, high rise glass buildings should have protection against sunlight. Solar protection for windows can block as much as 80% of heat and sunlight. It also increases privacy and reduces glare. It can also lessen energy costs and minimise air-conditioning use. Find one that also has UV filters to prevent fixtures and furniture from fading.
The future of high rise buildings across the globe is looking brighter than ever. Hire a builder that knows how to work with caution and ensures that every single detail is planned thoroughly before construction. Take your time and make sure to work only with the best.
