Safety and security window film is one of the best and most cost-efficient ways to upgrade your home or business security. Typically, one of the weakest points of any home or business is the windows. Although they allow for great views and natural sunlight, they also leave you susceptible to violent storms, damage, and crime. The good news is that you can correct the problem without having to replace your windows. So, what are you protecting your windows from anyway?
Well, in this article we will highlight four of the most common threats that safety and security window film protects against.
Dallas is no stranger to violent weather. Hail storms, tornadoes, and floods pose a threat every year. High winds carrying hail and debris can be a nightmare for your windows. With strong enough winds, that debris can blow right through a window, shattering the glass and sending it flying into your home. Many injuries suffered during violent storms are a result of flying and broken glass. Safety and security window film can help prevent hail, debris, and water coming in through the windows, depending on the severity of the storm. Whatever time of year, safety and security window film can be a lifesaver in any major storm with high winds.
Safety and security window film was originally developed due to concerns across the world from terrorist acts or bombings. The protective film significantly reduces the risk of serious injury from flying shards of glass. When a bomb goes off, the shock typically shatters nearby windows, causing injuries to anyone within range. Safety and security window film keeps the glass in tact, even if broken. However, the extent of protection from the window film depends on the severity of the blast and how close the windows are to the blast. As terrifying as it is to think about, bomb threats occur at schools and high occupancy buildings all the time. Safety and security window film adds another layer of protection for schools and more peace of mind.
A common type of crime to both homes and businesses is the “smash and grab”. A thief may see an object through a window and quickly break the window, grab the item and flee. Often the perpetrator will use a brick, rock or other object to break the glass. Safety and security window film makes the glass difficult to break. Even if the thief succeeds in breaking the glass, the glass pieces will be held together with the security film. With limited time, the thief must decide to keep attacking the window, or try a different window…or leave the scene altogether.
Safety and security window film adds a layer of protection to your property that compliments other security measures like an alarm system. On that note, it is important to understand that you should not rely on window film as your only line of defense. This window film is also a great choice for schools, whose most important job is to protect the students and teachers.
