How Can I Protect Myself From Breaking Glass During An Earthquake?
Seismic safety window film is a cost-effective solution to protecting windows. It’s a clear, protective layer that’s applied to the interior surface of your existing windows. Another key point is it’s able to reject 99.9% of UV rays reducing fading of furniture and floors. Above all, it offers superior protection from shattering glass during an earthquake.
In 1999, Prodigy Window Solutions discovered that there was no international seismic window film specification. A guide for glazing that would enhance life safety by minimizing the potential for bodily harm caused by glass during an earthquake. Therefore, in the winter of 2000, we consulted on the development of the world’s first window film specification for seismically upgrading glass. It was developed at the UBC Earthquake Testing Laboratory and is now recognized worldwide.
As a result, our safety solution can be found all over British Columbia and is currently being used by government and private-lead organizations for ongoing seismic mitigation projects.
Here is a small list of some of the seismic safety window film installations we’ve completed around the province.
