Privacy for function room guests

Privacy Film installed at the PowerLeague soccer dome in Wigan gives privacy to function room guests.

The PowerLeague Soccer Dome in Wigan is not just for football – it also boasts a fully licenced bar and function room that is regularly used for private parties, corporate events and functions.  The modern function room is surrounded by glazing. Although this allowed large levels of visible light to enter the room, it unfortunately offered little privacy for guests.

The management are always looking for ways to improve the experience of their guests, so began search for a retrofit solution that could be used to enhance the existing glass, without involving any disruptive structural changes.


“We needed a solution that would add privacy, but would also complement the appearance of the function room” explains the Centre Manager.

“We considered graphics but as we host various kinds of events it would be difficult to find one design to suit all occasions.”


An Ideal Solution

Following a site survey, ARC Window Films installed a white matte privacy film to the function room glazing.

ARC Privacy Film is an ideal solution to add privacy, decoration, corporate branding and control viewing in homes and businesses alike. It is also used regularly to meet Workplace (Health and Safety) Regulations to increase glass visibility and reduce accidents. It is clean, quick to install, and requires no additional maintenance.

“The end result is exactly what we required – it offers privacy for our guests and complements the overall appearance of the room” explains the business manager. “We are very happy with the installation and service overall.”

Thanks to ARC Window Films, the PowerLeague SoccerDome now offers complete privacy to its function room guests.


A Legal Requirement?

Employees and visitors moving in and around your premises may not be aware of the presence of glazing. Collisions with glass do occur, and are potentially very dangerous. Health and Safety law requires that glass be made visible and safe from risk of accidental collisions.

The highest risk areas are:

  • doors, especially near to door handles and push plates
  • glass panes surrounding doors
  • low level windows (children are especially vulnerable)
  • glass partitions or screens which are at shoulder height
  • glass partitions or screens at low level (protection for the disabled under the Disability Discrimination Act – DDA)

Be sure that your glazing remains compliant with current regulations.
