ARC lands major Manchester University contract

Wigan-based ARC Window Films is celebrating after beating off stiff competition to land a major contract with Manchester University.

The contract will see the small Hindley Green business supply and install a specialist anti shatter window film to around 4,000m2 of glazing in over 30 buildings across the University’s North and East campuses.

The work is expected to last five weeks and will take place during the summer holidays when the buildings are no longer in full time use.

ARC Window Films project manager, Neil Brabbs, said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen to carry out this work.

“We will be working in multiple old and new buildings installing a clear 100 micron anti shatter window film to existing glazing in order to help the university meet the current health and safety standards for glazing in the workplace.”

ARC carried out a similar project at Anglia Ruskin University last year, across their three campuses of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough.

Neil added: “We have a great deal of experience undertaking Regulation 14 Glazing Compliance works for both the public and private sectors.

“Legislation for glazing is changing all the time and our anti shatter window films are a quick and simple way of ensuring compliance and are a much more cost-effective option than re-glazing.”
