Glass fitted to windows and doors in childcare facilities MUST comply with the Australian standard AS/NZS 2208:1996


Childcare broken windows

The Australian AS/NZS 2208:1996 standard deals with the procedure for testing glazing material safety after it has been broken. This standard ensures that glass that becomes broken does not present a danger to young children. One of the best ways to avoid injury is to prevent broken glass from leaving the window or door frame. Top Tint Glass Safety Film achieves this objective extremely well. The film holds the glass in place and prevents both large sections of the glass and small shards of the glass from causing injury.


Glass fitted with a Top Tint safety protection film meets all of the requirements for Grade A (the highest rating) specified in AS2208.


Fitting safety film to existing windows and glass doors is the most economical way to bring existing glass into line with the current regulations for childcare centers.
