Manchester United’s football ground Old Trafford has taken steps to protect fans, players and staff in the wake of the recent Paris attacks by installing blast protection window film on all the windows.

The work is already underway, with bosses at the club also ensuring that supporters undergo full body searches when they arrive on match days after the Stade de France in Paris was targeted by terrorists who had intended to detonate bombs after gaining entry to the site, the Daily Mail reports.

In fact, the National Counter Terrorism Security Office advises those in charge of stadiums and arenas to ensure that anti-shatter film is installed on all glass on sit, saying: “Anti-shatter film, which holds fragmented pieces of glass together, offers a relatively cheap and rapid improvement to existing glazing.”

If you’d like to find out more about government guidelines in this regard, please read this post on our site. You can also watch this video if you’re keen to see how effective blast protection window film can be and see the differences between unprotected and protected glass when under attack from an explosive device.

Solartek Films LTD has been advising, supplying and installing blast mitigation window film to glass nationwide for 16 years. We can offer you a free consultation where we’ll visit your stadium and test some areas of glass to see if our products will protect you, your visitors and members of the public.

If areas are found, we can then measure them up and give you a quote to supply and install the best system available for your type of glass.
