EasyJet, a leading European low-cost carrier, recognized the need to enhance the security of their headquarters at Luton Airport. With a large number of employees and sensitive operations, the company sought a solution to mitigate the risks associated with potential explosions, specifically the threat of flying glass causing injury and damage.
Solartek, a specialist in window film applications, was chosen to address this challenge. They proposed the installation of Armourgard 175 Micron Blast Mitigation Film on all glazing at the EasyJet HQ. This film is specifically designed to:
Hold shattered glass fragments in place: The film’s strong adhesive and multiple layers act as a barrier, preventing glass shards from flying inwards and causing harm to occupants.
Absorb and dissipate blast energy: The film’s unique construction helps to absorb the shockwave from an explosion, reducing its impact on the building and its occupants.
Maintain visibility: The film is optically clear, ensuring minimal disruption to natural light and outward visibility.
The installation of the Armourgard film was completed efficiently within a 5-night timeframe, minimizing disruption to EasyJet’s operations. The project delivered immediate benefits:
The installation of blast protection window film goes beyond mere statistics. It reflects EasyJet’s commitment to the safety and well-being of its employees and demonstrates a proactive approach to risk management. This investment in security not only protects lives and property but also fosters a sense of security and confidence within the organization.
The installation of Armourgard blast protection window film at EasyJet HQ is a prime example of how proactive security measures can make a significant difference. By prioritizing the safety and well-being of its employees and visitors, EasyJet has set a positive example for other organizations to follow.
