An international airport requires the highest possible security measures to protect passengers against all potential risks. All glazing needs to be secure and safe in the event of accidental breakage, glass failure or bomb blast attack.
We treated the airport’s glazing with our high security clear 8mil security film and our Pentagon Flexible Anchoring profile, upgrading the existing glazing to withstand high impact damage and to contain glass fragments in the event of glass failure or accidental breakage. The millions of passengers are now protected from these risks.
