Overseas demand offers new window of opportunity for AGT

A raft of orders from the Middle East and Asia has propelled London based security glazing business, Advanced Glass Technology (AGT) into the global arena for the first time.

In response to increased demand from organisations and businesses wanting to mitigate risk to buildings and occupants in the event of a natural disaster, civil unrest or a terrorist attack, AGT has formed partnerships in Jordan and India regarding the installation of its ISO-approved anti-shatter blast containment film.

Embassies, Non-Governmental Organisations and a number of private enterprises are among a growing list of buildings that will undergo protection fitment under the expertise of AGT over the next few months.

First established within the retail automotive sector, offering a solution to the increased level of ‘smash and grab’ vehicle crime through the retrofitting of its anti-shatter security film, AGT expanded its expertise into architectural applications during 2009.

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.

Commented Martin Westney, Managing Director, Advanced Glass Technology:

“With architects increasingly pushing the envelope in terms of building design, it’s vital that building owners seek to protect not only their investment but also the lives of occupants against any eventuality. We are pleased to be able to take our expertise into new markets and provide a bespoke and cost effective solution that’s proven to provide significant levels of protection and security.”
