I have not had a lot of experience with applied films for glass and glazing, but I do receive questions about them.  I’d like to compile links to some resources for these products, and I’m hoping that some of you have insight you can share.

Glazing films may be added to existing glass for many reasons, for example, security, impact-resistance, privacy, or aesthetics.  There are also treatments for new glazing but in some facilities there is a preference to keep the existing glass in place, if possible.

One question that comes up frequently is whether there are films that have been tested and listed for use on existing glazing in fire door assemblies.

Do any of you have experience with these products?

What are some considerations for use of these films in school applications?

Are there glazing films that can be used on fire door assemblies?
