HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 22, 2008 7 Clear advantage HOMELIVING The combination helps hold the glass together in the event of breakage » ADVERTISING FEATURE There is no denying the dangers associated with broken or shattered glass. Safety window film lessens the dangerous consequences of broken glass. Optically clear and transparent, it allows light to pass through, while reinforcing the glass so its not brittle. The term elastomeric is applied to the safety film, as it has the ability to stretch. When safety film is applied to the interior surface of glass with a pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive, the combination helps hold the glass together in the event of breakage. New variants combining the benefits of various films are constantly being introduced, so creating new industry categories such as solar control safety film. Security film applied to windows, glass and doors provides added protection in the event of break and enter, bomb blasts, explosions or extreme weather. It also delays and deters intruders, as it holds broken glass in place, restricting access. They are available in clear or tinted, in a range of thicknesses.

Brickworks group marketing manager Brett Ward says you do not need to sacrifice lifestyle in an effort to reduce your home's environmental impact. ''Simple steps such as laying clay pavers, using drought-tolerant plants, quality mulch, and water recycling go a long way to making the home more water efficient,'' he said. ''One of the easiest and most cost- effective ways we can help preserve water is to cut back the amount of lawn and gardens we have by incorporating clay pavers into the design of the yard. ''The trouble with having large lawns is their considerable water requirements particularly in the summer months, not to mention the time spent on mowing, edging and disposing of grass clippings. Mr Ward said the choice of paver was also an important consideration. ''Our Riviera Freedom stain resistant clay pavers -- available in both a large and small format -- feature the revolutionary Paveshield, a surface treatment that resists staining,'' he said. ''Thanks to their stain-resistant coating, they require less cleaning than other pavers and are available in 300x300x40mm, 225x225x40mm, 450x225x40mm and six colours.'' Mr Ward says it's a great way to enrich the aesthetics of gardens and outdoor entertainment areas while saving water.
