DigiGlass Window Film Obtains Class “O” Fire Rating
British Isles-based DigiGlass’ Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) printed window film has earned a class “O” fire rating. The company says such a rating recognizes the product as one that can be legally installed onto all public surfaces and is the first “O” rating in the United Kingdom.

The process to obtain the rating began when DigiGlass was asked about installing printed window film on passenger trains. The customer wanted there to be certification that would ensure that the installation would comply with all safety regulations.

In order to do so the company set out to reach the class “O” rating, which would verify to the public that the safety, security and branding potential of these printed window films would be useful in situations where fire safety is important to the public and the customer, such as the passenger trains.

HanitaTek Updates i-Phone Application
Updates have been released to HanitaTek Window Films’ InfoZone mobile app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The updates are designed to make it possible for installers to choose metric units of measurement and designate which roll widths the film usage estimator will consider.

The company says the updates to the app were a result of recommendations and requests from installers who have downloaded and use the app.
