GSL Glassguard etching protection anti-graffiti films

GSL Glassguard etching protection anti-graffiti films not only protect glass from future acts of vandalism,  Glassguard films are specifically designed to help cover-up existing scratches.  The film cures, with the adhesive bonding to the vandalised etched glass, concealing the visible scratches and helping them slowly disappear from view.

Windows are then protected from future attacks from etching vandalism.  While it is still possible to scratch the film, your windows remain protected and replacement of any damaged film is fast and easy due to the new quick release adhesive. The film is virtually invisible once installed and may be cleaned with normal non-abrasive cleaning materials. 

GSL Glassguard etching protection anti-graffiti films are an economical alternative to the constant replacement of glass. Future replacement costs are often covered by insurance policies, or through our Etch Free Guarantee.

Hazard Mitigation - Safety Zone Range of Films

The GSL Glassguard range of safety and security window film transforms the most vulnerable and threatening area of your home and workplace into a more secure environment. The installation of the right GSL Glassguard safety film can minimize the threat of glass related injury resulting from impact, collision, blast or natural disaster such as earthquakes.


  • In the home, 4 mil and 7 mil clear Safety film professionally applied will generally protect a child who stumbles into a glass door, or smashes a ball through the window pane.
  • In the inner-city, where there is a high concentration of glass fronted buildings and shop windows, the threat of natural disaster, vandalism and robbery demand the greater level of protection provided by 7, 8 and 12 mil Safety Zone films.
  • In areas in the shadow of potentially explosive sites such as oil refineries, gas tanks and industrial areas, Safety Zone 7, 8 and 12 mil security films can offer increased protection.
  • In regions where the potential for disaster originates from the natural threats of earthquake or  severe storms Safety Zone 12 mil security films can help save lives.

GSL Glassguard developed a highly effective mechanical anchoring system to increase the performance of safety and security window films. Whilst the Safety Zone 12 mil security film grips the glass fragments, the  Anchoring system secures the film to the window frame, maximizing the effectiveness of the film, and helping to prevent collapse of the window.

GSL Glassguard Security Laminate is a tough sheet of polyester film bonded to ordinary glass to make it less easily broken through.  It is thicker than standard window film and has a more powerful adhesive.

  • Limits “smash & grab” burglary by deterring or delaying intruders
  • Broken glass holds together in frame – no boarding up costs
  • Convenient cost-effective way to upgrade existing glazing
