Client: John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Type of works: installed LLumar Protective Film
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a living presidential memorial and one of the countrys most esteemed
venues, wanted to better protect the thousands of people who visit each month. The magnificent structure covers 17 acres and features theaters, concert halls, an opera house, and more. The Kennedy Centers foyer is itself one of the worlds largest rooms, with towering glass walls.
To better protect its patrons from the danger of broken glass, the Kennedy Center installed more than 18,000 square feet (1672.25 square meters) of LLumar Protective Film all throughout the building. A laminated polyester film bonded by a unique adhesive system, the 7 milthick clear film was fitted to all glass entryways and interior walls.
Now, while thousands of visitors pour into the Kennedy Center each month in order to enjoy performances and other galas, the memorials management team rests much easier knowing that all of their patrons are well-protected from harm in the unlikely event of broken window glass. Both the thickness of the LLumar Protective Film and its unique bonding system play key factors in keeping the glass from shattering.
