Glass breakage is a great problem for schools, it is expensive to replace and there is the need to comply to *regulation 14, there is also the problem of vandalism and glass being accidentally broken.

Vandal Shield screens have been designed to protect glazing on the inside or outside of windows and doors and can be supplied either as a perforated steel screen in an aluminium frame or a clear polycarbonate screen.

The neatest way for them to be installed is direct to the window frame or door so that the appearance is retained and the windows or door can be opened and closed normally.
