Guide reminds installers to install graphics correctly

Big Picture

MACtac's IMAGin? perforated vinyl window film is often used for advertising on vehicles and public transportation. Improper installation can pose a safety risk to riders. So, Mactac, in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has updated its performance guide to remind installers how to avoid one of the dangers that can result from the incorrect application of window graphics--inoperable emergency exit windows.

Mactac's performance guides and technical bulletins offer techniques to avoid such safety issues. For example, proper trimming around emergency exit seals is essential because often the window seals don't coincide with the edge of the window frame. (Mactac: 866-622-8223; www.mactac.com)
