Glass Protection for a Safer World
While glass windows provide a functional benefit by opening up the outside world, they are also susceptible to various types of damage and breakage – whether by accident, natural hazard or criminal act. Safety & Security films offer added protection by holding glass together when facing a variety of hazardous situations:
- Natural Hazard Protection - During hurricanes and tornadoes, safety research indicates that security film can save lives and reduce property damage by preventing flying objects from penetrating windows. Additionally, earthquake studies confirm that home or office structures that include security film can substantially reduce the hazard of flying and shattered glass, a major source of injury.
- Accidental Damage Protection - A variety of glass window accidents occur in the home every year; a stray baseball hits an unintended target, a lawnmower propels a rock, a toddler falls against a bay window. The installation of the proper safety film can keep these minor accidents from becoming a medical emergency.
- Human Threat Protection - Unfortunately, crime and vandalism are a part of our everyday life. Personal safety and property are exposed to the expanding levels of risk associated with “smash and grab” robberies and other more dangerous illegal acts. Safety films provide a much-needed deterrent to vandals and thieves by holding glass panes in place preventing easy entry.
Safety & security films can be found anyplace where glass breakage poses a threat - homes, commercial buildings, retail stores, government buildings and even cars. They are available in a variety of thickness sizes depending on the level of protection needed, and you can choose either a clear film, if you don’t want the look of window film, or a shaded version if you are looking for added solar protection.
Another popular protection film is anti-graffiti. This clear film was created to protect glass and other non-porous surfaces from accidental scratches and acts of vandalism.
