Emergency exits made easy
The current regulation; -
UN ECE R107 - Uniform provisions concerning the approval of category M2 or M3 vehicles with regard to their general construction:– Technical requirements for emergency windows.
“126.96.36.199.2. Be made of readily-breakable safety glass. This latter provision precludes the possibility of using panes of laminated glass or of plastic material. A device shall be provided adjacent to each emergency window, readily available to persons inside the vehicle, to ensure that each window can be broken.”
The simple solution; -
All readily-breakable safety glass emergency windows are required to be a specified size, glass type (UN ECE R43 toughened glass) and be suitably located. These readily-breakable window panes are weather proof and permanently fitted in the chassis window openings. It is therefore, a logical choice to satisfy the above technical requirements by allowing for new and existing conforming windows to be equipped with a Safe-T-Punch™ glass breaking device.
The UK Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) accepts the Safe-T-Punch™ device as fit for purpose and it conforms to the UN ECE R107 technical requirements for emergency windows and emergency hatches. Independent UCAS accredited performance tests confirm the efficacy of Safe-T-Punch™ to break readily-breakable safety glass.
The internationally tested Safe-T-Punch™ device and its homologated accompanying operating instructions are easily and permanently attached in its place of operation on the emergency window glass itself. Each Safe-T-Punch™ device is equipped with a removable security tag that prevents unintended activation.
Safe-T-Punch™ technology is suitable for single and double glazing readily-breakable emergency window applications. It is capable of breaking readily-breakable safety glass of all varying thicknesses as required by the regulations. Safe-T-Punch™ works under water.
The award winning Safe-T-Punch™ device is manufactured under a current certified ISO 9001-2008 Quality Management System.
Using Safe-T-Punch™ is the easiest and most economical way to produce robust low maintenance fully compliant emergency windows that can be instantly operated by any person in an emergency.
