Education Essentials

Is your students’ health, safety and security your top priority? Can you confidently say that you are doing everything that you can to prevent any potential accidents or incidents? Whether your answer is a yes or no, here are 4 education essentials that you need to protect your staff and students.

#1 Window Film

Window Film can be applied to all of your existing windows in your establishment. Not only does it improve your existing glazing, therefore making your premises more energy efficient, but it also provides many other safety benefits depending on the type of film. You can find out more about 3M film here.

 

Climate/Solar control window film

– optimises occupant comfort levels, therefore, increasing work productivity.

Anti-glare window film

– reduces glare, especially from computer screens, to increase visual comfort.

Safety/Anti-shatter window film

– strengthens existing glazing, upgrading the glass to meet building safety requirements. This film also holds glass fragments together in the event of a bodily impact or an explosion.

Security window film

– strengthens the glass to deter a burglary or an intentional attempt to break the glass.

#2 DDA Manifestations

It is a health and safety requirement to apply manifestations to glass doors, glass partitions, and screens, to make sure that the solid glass is evident. The aim of the manifestations is to reduce injuries by preventing people from walking into the glass.

Here are ways that you can comply to the manifestation law whilst also increasing privacy and safety in the process:

Frosted window film or graphics

– partially obscures the glass to provide some privacy from passersby.

Reflective materials

– these create a one-way vision so that only students can see out.

#3 Anti-Slip Materials

Slips, trips and falls are the leading cause of general accidents and injuries in public spaces, yet the majority of them can be prevented by implementing the right safety measures such as these anti-slip materials:

Fibreglass anti-slip

– a durable, long term solution (dependent on foot traffic) which satisfies DDA requirements.

Anti-slip liquid

– a medium to long term solution (dependent on foot traffic) and flexible due to liquid properties.

Anti-slip tapes

– suitable for short term or low foot traffic areas, available in standard or conformable (aluminium backed) material for uneven surfaces.

Entrance matting

– a wide-range of fitted or loose laid matting.

#4 Finger Guards

In any establishment where there is high traffic of all ages, trapping of fingers in doors can occur. In fact, 30,000 children under the age of 15 in the UK trap their fingers every year, many of which need some form of surgery or even finger amputations.

You can completely eliminate the risk of this injury by applying the right finger guards:

MK1A

– for the hinge opening side of the door.

MK1B

– for the hinge pin side of the door.

MK1C

– for uPVC or Bi-fold doors.
