Building Owners/Property Management of Leased Government Space
Use Safetydrape to meet UFC and SAFETY Act criteria: Government lessors are required to maintain minimum anti-terrorism standards. Use Safetydrape to make sure you don’t lose tenants because of compliance issues!
The Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) states:
“DoD personnel occupying leased buildings deserve the same level of protection as those in DoD-owned buildings. Implementation of these standards is therefore mandatory for all buildings with DoD populations…that are leased for DoD use or in which DoD receives a space assignment from another government agency…” (UFC 4-010-01: 1-8.4)
“For leased buildings that are required to comply with these standards, window retrofits incorporating alternative window treatments [such as Safetydrape®] may be allowed if they provide the appropriate level of protection.” (UFC 4-010-01: B-188.8.131.52)
Safetydrape® is the only Glass Hazard Mitigation system that protects you according to the SAFETY Act while bringing your properties up to the appropriate level of protection.
- Does not void window warranties
- Unlike film, causes no damage to your building and windows
- Lower lifetime operating costs. Lasts 3x longer than film (20 year warranty)
Window film may seem like a cheap and easy glass hazard mitigation solution for your buildings, however, these films come with drawbacks:
- Window film will void window warranties
- Wet glazing adds a ¾” layer of caulking to the mullion which can create a mess during installation and even more issues during and after removal
- Film lasts for only 7 years and must be replaced afterwards
- Removing film so you can add replacement film may cost more than the original installation.
