Are splinters good luck? Not really! Anyone who’s ever hurt themselves on a broken glass certainly won’t think so. Broken glass at home is a major risk for injuries, and one you don’t want to imagine when you consider how a window, interior glass door, skylight or mirror breaks.
The perfect solution for preventing serious accidents and cuts caused by broken glass or sharp-edged splinters is the new d-c-fix® Splinter protective film, which is easy to apply to windows, glass doors, glass panels in doors or furniture, and mirrors, is virtually invisible, and retains splinters in the event of glass breakage thanks to its particularly strong adhesive. The window film also offers a cost-effective alternative to reglazing, as glass surfaces can be retrofitted with it. d-c-fix® window film helps to prevent possible injuries from broken glass and glass splinters, with the good feeling of knowing you’ve done the right thing to protect everyone in your home. Let’s get started!
Your DIY for greater safety on glass surfaces!
You will need…
Measure the dimensions of the glass surface to be covered.
Transfer the dimensions to your Splinter protective film, subtracting 2–3 mm distance from the window seals on all sides during cutting.
Now it’s time to prepare the window: Thoroughly clean the glass surface so it’s completely free of dust and dirt of any kind.
Then spray the glass surface generously with water or d-c-fix® application fluid until no more dry areas are visible.
Detach the backing paper from the Splinter film and apply it to the window – make sure that there is sufficient distance from the window seals.
When you have the film correctly positioned, use the scraper to squeeze out the water between the glass and the window film. The best way to do this is to lightly press outwards from the center.
Finally, use a cloth to wipe the pane dry.
We did it!
The full splinter protection effect of the d-c-fix® Splinter protective film develops after the adhesive completely dries – typically, 2–3 days after application of the film.
