Brief: A method to reinforce and anchor the existing windows against possible spontaneous glass breakage.
Solution: Using templates, anti-shatter window safety film was pre-cut with holes and slits in to go round the retaining bolts (as these were not being completely removed).
The back of the retaining bolts were then removed, the film fitted and then the bolts replaced with the addition of single sided self adhesive polyprene washers. These were to anchor the film to the ‘spiders’ which the glass panels were hung from.
Once this was complete reinforcing strips were fitted over the butt joints and slits as an additional precaution.
