Preventing Crimes of Opportunity

In the movies, break-ins are often presented as high-tech operations perpetrated by criminal masterminds. But in reality, most burglars are simply looking for an easy target. The last thing they want is to end up in jail, and they know that an easy entrance through an easily broken window or door will get them in and out of a home in minutes flat.

According to ADT, as many as 23 percent of break-ins occur via a first-floor window. Security film is meant to make those windows more difficult to break, hardening them against impact from burglars, vandals, accidents, and more. When glass is impacted, 3M security films hold it together, keeping the glass from shattering. Not only does this make it harder to get into a building, but it also protects anyone near an impact from getting injured.

How Does Security Film Work?

3M window security film uses the same properties as the windshield glass in your vehicle that keeps the glass from breaking when something impacts your windshield. Just as a crack or chip won’t cause your windshield to shatter, windows covered in the protective film will also stay together after an impact.

These are some of the benefits of investing in security film:

  • Protect your family and home against storms and debris.
  • Reduce the chance of an injury in a natural disaster.
  • Prevent burglars from getting into your home.
  • Reduce scratches to glass from debris, pets, kids, and more.
