Cable Catch Systems + Blast Safety Films

Standard glazing that is subject to violent explosive forces such as terrorist attacks and industrial explosions, will result in lethal flying glass fragments entering a room.

When glass is solely treated with Blast Safety Window Film and the blast pressure exceeds the tensile & break strength of the film, the majority of the glass shards will likely remain attached or adhered to the film as 1 sheet. Such flying glass sheets cause large numbers of serious injuries. - see video -

WINDOW GARD offers solutions that upgrade the protection performance of standard glazing and combines energy absorbing Cable Catch Systems to prevent complete glass panel/sheets from entering a room at higher blast.

OPEN ARENA BLAST TEST WITHOUT CATCHMENT                              

SYSTEM DETAILS


In combination with Anti-Shatter Film ('explosion resistant film') or laminated glass, it is designed to 'catch' the complete glass panels/sheets in a blast event. When the filmed or laminated glass hits the cable, the Energy Absorbing components are activated, which enables the 'catching' ability and significantly reduces the load transfer to the wall structure.

Depending on the blast load, the wall construction type and window opening, the WINDOW GARD® Cable Catch System (German: Energieabsorbierendes Seilfangsystem) can be engineered to fit any practical window opening size. Consulting us during the evaluation process will allow you to determine the correct model of blast mitigation system and its proper installation design.
