Safety and Security Window Films

Safety and security window films are polyester, or PET films that are applied to glazing in order to hold the glass together if it is shattered.  The main difference between the two are thickness.  The thicker the window film, the more penetrable force it can withstand allowing for greater protection from theft.  These products are available in tinted versions as well.

A burglar can smash through your windows and steal valuables like computers, tools, jewellery or confidential information with just one swing at your glass.

Security window films applied to the interior surface of your existing glass slow criminals down from gaining access to your home or business and make it more difficult and time consuming to gain entry.

The time our security window films take away from gaining entry, allows your alarm system to react and alert the authorities.

The would be burglar becomes frustrated and moves on to easier victims.

How Security Window Films Work

The secret is the window film’s super aggressive adhesive. It forms a molecular bond between the layers of the film and glass and holds it together, even after multiple impacts.  If the glass breaks, it remains adhered to the film and in most cases, will stay intact in its frame. The tensile strength, coupled with the elasticity and resistance to shear force aids in the ability of eliminating the chance of objects penetrating the window film.

 

Security Film and Alarms

When security window films are used in conjunction with alarm systems, the alarms are still triggered when the glass breaks alerting the authorities but the burglar is held back from the strength of the film. Repeated attempts create more noise and take more time before access is gained.

 

Other Benefits of Security Window Films

Other benefits include fade reduction and selective solar control. Security window films are available as window tint. Window tinting is very effective at reducing the damaging effects of the sun by eliminating 99% of UV rays and up to 86% of solar heat and glare.
