Safety & Security: Window Film Can Help You Stay Safe This Summer

security window films

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.
