If you’re a homeowner, you want to do everything you can to keep your home safe for all of its occupants and protect it from damage. Many homeowners will go to great lengths to install high-quality locks or security systems on their homes, but they overlook a key opportunity for home security, window film. 3M window film is a residential safety and security film that is available in four different levels of protection.


At Sun Control of Minnesota serving the Twin Cities, our expert protective film installers can boost your home’s security by installing the level of protection that works best for you. This guide will walk you through the important ways 3M Security Film works to protect your home.


Shatter Resistance for Your Windows

One of the key benefits to using 3M Security Film is its shatter-proof properties. When your car is traveling down the road and is suddenly hit by a rock, chances are good that your windshield will remain intact with the rock simply bouncing away. This is because windshields use a binding agent that helps to prevent shattering.


That same binding agent is present in 3M Security and Safety Film. This means when an errant baseball flies your way, it is far less likely to break your window. It also makes it much more difficult for intruders to break into your windows.


3M Security Film can provide excellent shatter resistance for these glass surfaces:

●        Entry doors

●        Patio doors

●        Windows


UV Protection

There’s nothing like a brightly lit living area to bring a little sunshine to your space. But over time, all of that dreamy light can cause your furniture, art, and rugs to fade. 3M Security Film offers UV protection so you don’t have to worry about unsightly fading on your treasured decor. The films come in different colors and levels of light permeation. They also come with a comprehensive warranty so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
