As a homeowner, keeping your home and loved ones safe is always on your mind. If you’re a homeowner on a budget, though, you may struggle with finding cost-effective ways to protect your property and family. When homeowners think of security options for their homes, they’re often worried about breaking and entering. But considering natural disasters, accidents, and even extreme weather can be just as important when you’re putting together a security plan for your home.


At Sun Control Minnesota, we work with homeowners every day to help improve the safety in their homes with 3M safety and security film. In this post, we’ll break down some of the reasons you should include 3M film in the security plan for your home.


Here are just a few ways residential security film can protect your family or home:


1.      Protect Against Burglaries and Home Invasion

Most homeowners don’t realize this, but burglars are usually looking for the easiest route to what they want. That means if there are three homes on a block to choose from, a burglar is most likely to choose the one with the thinnest window or to walk through a door that is left unlocked. After all, they don’t want to risk going to jail or getting injured due to an angry homeowner who feels threatened. They’re going to put themselves in as little risk as possible.


3M film makes glass extremely difficult to break. That means your burglar is more likely to move on to an easier target, giving you time to call the police.


2.      Protect During Natural Disasters

Here in Minnesota, we might not have to worry about earthquakes, but there are plenty of other natural disasters that can strike your home and harm your loved ones. One of the biggest concerns is flying debris from extreme weather.


High windows can turn even the simplest objects into dangerous projectiles. However, 3M film protects your home by preventing the glass from breaking during even the strongest of winds.


3.      Mitigate Broken Glass Hazards

Broken glass isn’t something you likely think about often, but accidents can happen anywhere. From an errant baseball due to children playing to an aging tree that loses a branch, hazards that could potentially impact your windows are more common than you realize.


3M glass helps to soften the impact by preventing the shattering effect that occurs when glass breaks. This keeps your family safer and makes any broken windows that do occur easier to clean up and repair.
