    I have been decorating for my elderly mother who has glass panel doors. Glass is 27 x 32cm panels. 10 in each door.
    One door has 3 panels, 50 x 58cm.
    The doors have no removable beading, doors built around glass. Its not safety glass, so, before replacing the doors, is there a plastic sheeting product i can stick to the glass to make them safer?

    Clear safety film but it won't stick to patterend glass in case it is, needs to be a smooth surface

    Probably easier and quicker to change the door.

    Hello, I ordered a sample of the film, and aesthetically looks good when fitted to the tukip glass, only the odd tiny bubble.
    I was thinking though, is it on par with the proper safety glass? The film has safety standard conformity but would the manufactured safety glass be better for safety?

    It meets the same regs but in an ideal world you would have straight safety glass
