Upgrading main building glazing to a higher security standard including restaurant/bar area and entrance lobby to ensure safety of all guests and staff.
We treated the fairmont’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.
