The issue - Terror attack -
exposing people and business to the vulnerability of glass.
With the threat of attack a very real and serious possibility in
cities and society throughout the world today, protecting people
and assets alongside business continuity and emergency planning
are a matter of priority for us all. With 90% of all injuries in a
blast caused by flying glass, the first area of priority must be
the weakest link in our buildings - the glazing.
We tend to forget that the clear glass protecting us from outside
elements cannot provide protection from the dangers of a blast. It
in fact becomes a danger in itself.
Powerful shock waves from a high-velocity attack emanate in all
directions. Your windows could convert into lethal flying shards
of glass. Your building will then be open to the elements,
allowing the bomb blast to enter your building at speed where
internal glazing is also vulnerable, with fixed internal glazing
or glass partitioning proving to be just as hazardous.
Our greatest desire is to minimise the quantity and hazard of
broken glass and blast induced debris, ensuring business
continuity and stability.
The solution - Protecting a building's occupants and business
continuity is our priority.
Protect your business, property, employees and members of the
public with Pentagon Protection blast mitigation high-tensile
strength anti-shatter film.
Pentagon Protection Blast Mitigation Anti-Shatter Film, when
applied to your existing glazing, whether to doors and windows or
overhead and internal glazing, will mitigate the effects of bomb
blasts on glass. It is an immediate and cost-effective retrofit
solution, especially when compared with the replacement of
The film, normally applied to one side of the glazing, will absorb
a large degree of the shock wave, stretching, without tearing and
lessening the effect as it enters the building. In many cases
although the glass breaks, the filmed glass will fall out in one
piece, attached to the pressure sensitive film. This minimises
damage and injuries.
Pentagon Protection's range of Anchoring Systems and upgrade
profiles have become far more popular as a result of increased
concerns over the need to retain broken glass intact within the
glazing system with Pentagon Protection the first to test to the
highest of blast mitigation standards ISO 16933.
Pentagon Protection's clear glass containment film with or without
anchoring and edge-retention provides an immediate and
cost-effective retrofit solution to provide enhanced protection
ENERGY EFFICIENCY WINDOW FILM
The issue - Excessive use of air
conditioning, due to solar energy, with resultant increased CO2
The use of electricity produces CO2 and with air-conditioned
office space having tripled over the last decade and on the
increase, saving energy in non-domestic buildings is, according
to ACE (The Association for the Conservation of Energy) and The
Carbon Trust, the sector where much greater savings are
High temperature in buildings is invariably caused by energy
from the sun. 86% of total solar energy is admitted through
clear glass. This coupled with ever increasing fuel costs and
the introduction of a 'Climate Change Levy' on energy used calls
for prompt action!
If you want to help temper global warming by reducing carbon
emissions then using a cost-effective glazing material that will
also save your business money in the long term is a smart move.
The solution - Solar heat control
film and coatings.
Pentagon Protection supply and
install solar heat control window film and InfraMax Energy
Efficient Coatings that reduce the transmittance of light and
infrared heat through glass windows and doors. This reduces heat
gain and provides many immediate benefits.
With our sputtered films and coatings, the cooling loads
demanded by air conditioned buildings can be substantially
decreased. This gives business managers the possibility of
significant savings in energy costs, including a reduced climate
change levy liability, whilst maintaining workplace comfort.
Selecting the correct product for the type of glazing is not
always straightforward. Pentagon Protection, as specialists in
solar control and heat reduction will of course provide
assistance in product specification and recommendation.
The latest Pentagon InfraMax Energy Efficient Coatings offer
increased heat reduction and energy efficiency with maximum
visible light transmission whilst retaining the aesthetics of
your premises. It is ideal for heat gain reduction with
historical or listed buildings.
A combined safety/heat reduction version is also available.

The issue - Glass - potentially the weakest link and quickest
route into your building.
The weakest part of a building structure is the glazing. It
provides an immediate point of entry for break-ins or a focus for
vandalism. Shattered glass causes disruption and distress and
there are significant financial implications and loss of business
during clear up.
Standard glazing is not designed to resist vandalism or forced
entry burglary, nor severe windstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes
and their consequent wind-borne debris. These events expose people
to both scattered and flying glass.
The solution - Glass containment film
Pentagon Protection can provide an
immediate and cost-effective solution to the vulnerability of your
glazing and the consequent loss of security. The application of
glass containment film from the Pentagon Protection range will
significantly reduce the vulnerability of glass without reducing
the benefits of clear glazing.
Tested to BS EN12600 Impact test, Pentagon's range of glass
containment security film is designed to absorb and stretch under
attack - bonding any broken glass to the film.
When applied to existing glazing it forms a barrier that delays
penetration of your glass making it difficult to gain easy and
With 'smash and grab' thefts
accounting for a large percentage of commercial criminality, if
the burglar is met with a degree of resistance due to the presence
of Pentagon's glass containment security film, the individual will
usually quickly give up and move on.
The benefits of Pentagon's glass containment film can also be
combined with solar-control, providing you with both safety AND
For enhanced security protection, take a look at our Pentagon
Protection Anchoring Systems. Tested to the highest of ISO and GSA
Standards, glass containment and anchoring has been proven to
provide optimum levels of protection.
The issue - Glass must meet recognised glazing safety
Glass is very much taken for granted in our society today and
the fact of exactly how vulnerable and lethal it can become is
Standard window glazing offers no protection whatsoever from
injury and if broken, either by accident or intent, it can
become extremely dangerous - suddenly turning our light and
comfortable, safe and secure environment into a place of extreme

The solution - Clear safety window
An immediate and cost-effective
solution to upgrade existing glazing and provide peace of mind, is
the retro-fit application of a high quality clear safety film from
Pentagon Protection. Available in a choice of thicknesses to
provide the safety or security level required.
When professionally installed, Safety film forms an almost
invisible protective coating on the glass surface bonded by its
extremely aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive system resulting
in any broken glass remaining adhered to the film.
The application of Safety Film can be improved to provide an even
higher degree of protection with the addition of one of Pentagon
Protection's edge retention profiles as an enhanced anchoring
