While glass windows in today’s homes, offices and buildings provide a necessary function and aesthetic appeal, they can become extremely dangerous, even deadly, when shattered or broken panes transform into flying “shards” of glass. Natural hazards, accidents and crime all pose potential risks to most glass systems existing today.
Fortunately, there is a preventative solution that can greatly reduce the risk of human injury and property damage. The installation of Safety / Security film offers protection to people and property. The durable polymer film construction and tough adhesive bonds to glass, creating a functional “safety net” that holds glass in place at impact.
Safety/Security Protection Benefits:
• 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/Security films provide a much-needed deterrent to vandals and thieves. Even after being smashed, security film will help hold glass panes in place and prevent easy entry.
