And why go into the window film industry?

The demand for window film, be it solar film, safety film or car window film, is steadily on the increase. Across the world, those in the safety and security industry, those who deal with machinery and those responsible for the protection of information, are beginning to realise the undeniable need for decent protection. Glass is the weakest part of any structure; protecting it is a must. And with such a demand for window film, the industry is lucrative.

Occupational health and safety is a cross-disciplinary area, concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. On this basis, many of the prevailing safety and machinery acts across the world have recently added clauses that insist on the re-inforcing of glass for the safety and security of workers, visitors and other stakeholders.

The goal of all occupational health and safety programmes is to foster a safe work environment, ranging from protecting employees’ eyes from the sun to bomb-proofing windows. Window film has become a necessary part of many industries’ safety and protection precautions. Because of this there has been a rapid increase in the demand for decent, reputable window film companies.

Another reason for the increase in demand for window film is the need for protection from looting, rioting, civil disobedience and the broken glass that results from such occurrences. Research shows that over 65% of injuries caused in riot situations result from flying glass – making safety film the only option when it comes to reinforcing glass for safety purposes and protecting information by hindering outside visibility through windows.

The ever-increasing demand for window film means that there is good reason to enter into the industry as a supplier and fitter of window film – and Klingshield’s aim is to ensure that there are enough reputable window film companies in the world to be able to satisfy the ever-growing demand.
