AGT Completes Emirates Air Line

As the capital gears up for the Olympic Games, London based security glazing specialist, Advanced Glass Technology (AGT) has now completed its biggest project to date a six figure contract to install Anti Shatter protective window film on the new Emirates Air Line cable car docking stations, which is scheduled to open for business 1st July 2012.

With a total security budget for staging the Games thought to be in excess of £200 million, AGT was drafted in to fit its anti-shatter blast mitigation film on all the glazing for the new buildings, following a rigorous tendering and procurement process.

Having seen increased demand from building owners across the globe wanting to mitigate risk to people and property in the event of civil unrest or even a terrorist attack as a result of international events, AGT is anticipating a further boost to enquiries regarding its BSEN -approved blast mitigation film.

Commented Martin Westney, Managing Director, Advanced Glass Technology:

“AGT have recently completed installation contracts across the globe including Embassies, Government Buildings, United Nations, Non-Governmental Organisations and private corporations in Jordan, Iraq, Kosovo and Nigeria”

With security films starting at a thickness of 50 microns up to 450 microns, the multi-laminate polyester membrane can be applied to any glass surface. It is bonded with an aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive system resulting in any broken glass adhering to the film. AGT also offers installation with a range of specialist anchoring and edge retention systems for enhanced levels of protection, according to the client’s requirements.
