Specialist Urges Safety Treatment for Glass Panels

May 08, 1988

People who work in or around glass partitions and windows should be concerned about their safety during an earthquake, warns Los Angeles City Fire Department safety specialist Henry Johnson.

Unless properly coated or otherwise treated, glass windows or panels subjected to the sudden twisting of an earthquake can burst, sending shards flying across a room, he says.

Johnson says that among the firms which provide coatings for glass are: Armorcoat of Southern California, North Hollywood; Endur-All Glass Inc., Woodland Hills, and the the 3M Co., maker of Scotchshield safety and security film.
