Business owners, managers, and heads of households alike value safety for the buildings they oversee. That’s why cameras, lights, and security notification systems are put in place. But did you know that window film can also help protect your most important assets? Safety & Security Window Films from 3M have several functions designed with your safety in mind. Keep reading to learn what is security window film and how it can help protect the people you love and the buildings you manage. 

What is Security Window Film?

Security window film is a transparent, protective film that is applied to the surface of glass windows for added protection. This type of film helps strengthen the glass, making it difficult to break or shatter. When applied to glass windows or doors, the film creates a strong bond, which does not easily break under pressure, and allows your windows or doors to stay intact even when the glass may have broken or shattered. This quality makes it possible to keep people and objects out of your space even when the original glass may have broken beneath the film. We carry the following security film products from 3M, each with their own unique benefits:

  • 3M Ultra Prestige Series
  • 3M Ultra Series
  • 3M Safety Series
  • 3M Privacy Series
  • 3M Anti-Graffiti
  • 3M Impact Protection Systems

How Does Security Window Film Work? 

Made with high-impact polyester, this film is incredibly strong and durable, able to withstand high-pressure impact from objects like rocks or bricks. The film’s effectiveness in holding broken glass together reduces the risk of injury or damage to your property as external objects and broken glass do not penetrate the indoors.  3M Security Window Films can protect in the event of:

  • Inclement weather & natural disasters
  • Break-ins
  • Bomb blasts

While security window film is not bulletproof, it does act as a deterrent against intruders, as the impenetrable qualities of this film make it much harder for intruders to enter. Given that most burglaries in this country take between 8 to 10 minutes to conduct, deterring an intruder by even a few minutes, as is possible with security window films, can make all the difference when it comes to preventing an intruder from entering your home or office and stealing your possessions or causing more damage to your physical or mental health.
