Protecting Austin Public Spaces From Bomb Blasts With Window Films
We all know that Austin is a great place to call home and a fairly safe city too. But there is not a single one of us who does not remember the terror during the Austin bombings last year. It is all to clear to us that terrorists do not discriminate in their attacks and sadly we saw first hand the damage that can be done by someone looking to do a community harm. It is more clear now than ever that as a city we must hope for the best but definitely prepare for even worse attacks than we saw. The way to do this is for commercial building owners and public building managers to consider a sound strategy and precautionary steps to keep our community safe like installing bomb blast window film. Stadiums, schools, transit stations and retail centers are all places bomb blast window film would well serve and mean a safer Austin for us all.
What Is Bomb Blast Window Film?
At Austin Window Film we are proud to carry a full line of high-tech security window films, including bomb blast window film as well. This type of powerful films works by reinforcing glass windows and doors and making them resistant even to the powerful force of a bomb. However, there is more to it than just film. Bomb blast films get their strength by being used in coordination with two key elements: a proprietary adhesive called C-Bond and specialty window frames. C-Bond is a cutting-edge adhesive that is actually nano-engineered to make glass more flexible and stronger on a molecular level. While the specialty window framing systems are incredibly effective at holding the glass firmly in place during a blast and providing one of the highest levels of bomb protections available.
How Does Bomb Blast Window Film Protect From Austin Bombs?
When a bomb is detonated, shards of glass (even-tempered glass) explode out and hurt/ kill innocent bystanders. Casualties and injuries from flying glass, in fact, are the most common from a bomb. The reason for this is–pieces of glass are lethally propelled and become thousands of deadly weapons that are devastating to human life. However, with bomb blast window film, C-Bond, and specialty window frames, the glass is kept adhered to the bomb blast film and does not explode outward to maim and kill. This seemingly simple precaution cuts down significantly on the devastation of a bomb attack, reducing deaths and injuries and ultimately making Austin a safer place to live.
