EBRD Banks on Solarshield

Solarshield have successfully completed the replacement of existing anti shatter film to the glazing of the prestigious London Head Office of the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in Bishopsgate, Central London.


The new film complies with current Ministry of Defence recommendations and American GSA (Government Service Agency) standards for bomb blast protection.

In some areas additional solar control film and privacy film was installed to enhance the performance of glass.
Some high risk areas also had additional film anchoring / edge retention for extra protection installed, utilising a bespoke powder coated aluminium system designed in house, to discreetly match the existing window frames.

The works were carried out over 14 weekends on 12 Floors and approximately 5100m2 of glass was treated, to offer added protection to personnel & infrastructure.

Some of the works in the Glass Atrium involved the installation of high level access platforms to reach over 20m above floor level, special lightweight aluminium materials were used to keep the load on the structure to a minimum.  
The installation carries a full 10 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty when installed by Solarshield.

A representative from the Bank said:-
“I would gladly recommend Solarshield to anyone considering this type of Contract, considering all of the work was completed out of hours, the Project ran like clockwork”.
