Glass Manifestation

Frosted Window Films are one of the most cost effective and easiest ways to ensure you are up to date with the latest manifestation legislation and comply with current Building Regulations. Any full height glass in windows, partitions or doors, must be marked correctly with glass manifestation to make sure that it is made apparent. Glass manifestation is designed to help make glass obvious, and prevent injury should somebody walk into the glass.


Building Regulations (E&W) Approved Document M states that glass entrance doors and glass screens will satisfy requirement M1 or M2 if:

  • a) They are clearly defined with glass manifestation on the glass at two levels; between 850–1000 mm and between 1400–1600 mm above the floor, contrasting visually with the background seen through the glass (both inside and out) in all lighting conditions.
  • b) Manifestation takes the form of logo or sign at least 150 mm high (repeated if on a glazed screen), or a decorative feature such as broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50 mm high.

This window film complies with BS 476 -6 and -7, Class 0 – Surface Spread of Flame and Ignitability.
