Planning to hit the road this summer? Here’s one great reason to install window film on your home windows. The International Window Film Association (IWFA), a nonprofit organization of window film dealers, distributors, and manufacturers, recently noted some interesting facts about the value of home window film. The IWFA points out that windows around a home’s entryway offer an inviting target for thieves to smash their way inside. FBI reports state illegal entry is often made through a door or window and also that the months of July and August see an increase in break-ins.
Darrell Smith, executive director of the IWFA noted that “Safety window films when professionally installed on windows may slow down a thief by holding the glass together and making it harder for a thief to get through the glass, which may discourage them from breaking in”. Want to see an example of this? Check out the video below featuring 3M™ Safety & Security Film Ultra S600.
Impressive, right? If that one doesn’t seal the deal for you, how about this video, showing the impressive strength of another 3M™ window film, the 3M™ Safety & Security Film S140. Tell me that guy isn’t going to be pretty exhausted after this:
Again, it’s easy to see the impact that window film can have when it comes to home safety and security. At up to 42 micro-layers thick, 3M™ Ultra Series films are tough and tear-resistant. These films deliver superior performance over standard polyester films in blast and impact events, while yet maintaining a high level of optical clarity. You’ll be able to see with clarity while adding a very powerful layer of protection to your home. Have questions? Contact one of our Safety & Security experts to help determine your needs.
