Safety window film is a thin film applied directly to the window. While lightweight, the film is incredibly strong and helps protect your home or office from unforeseen damage.
Available in a wide range of options to suit any budget, the safety window film is a great way to increase the security of your home or business. Let's take a more detailed look at how such a thin film can protect your large investments.
Helps Prevent Shattering
Whether you install safety window film in a residential or commercial capacity, you are making an investment in your building and everyone within. Both commercial and residential safety film will help prevent the glass from shattering in the event of an impact directly on the glass.
Dangerous storms with high winds and hail can cause windows to break and shatter or can fling tree branches into your windows that may shatter them. This could cause the glass to fly into your home or business potentially harming those within. Further, with a shattered window, your loved ones or business can be exposed to the elements.
Applying window safety film can help prevent this by keeping the window from shattering upon impact. Window safety film is available in varying thicknesses to meet every budget. The thicker the film, the better it is at protecting your windows from shattering.
Protects From UV Damage
Using window safety film also has the added value of acting as commercial window tinting. By using the film in your place of business, you will protect your interior and merchandise from harmful UV light.
Prolonged exposure to UV light can cause paint, carpeting, furniture, and even merchandise near the windows to fade. By using window safety film, you gain protection against the sun’s harmful rays and the added benefits that commercial window tinting give.
Your home or business will have added privacy with safety window film. This film comes in various colors and prevents people passing by your business from looking in. While from the outside, your windows appear to be darker or reflective, natural light can still come into your home or business to light the space.
Not only does this give you the added privacy you deserve, but it can help prevent crimes. Your home or business will have extra security if people cannot readily see what is sitting just beyond your windows.
Along with adding privacy, safety window films add extra security to your business or home. They can help prevent burglaries and other house intrusions. Window security films are installed in the glass's interior, making it tough to break through the glass.
Windows are often your home or building's most vulnerable entry points because they can easily be broken. The safety window film makes it harder for intruders to break the window.
Decrease Energy Bills
Safety window film, especially when combined with commercial window tinting, can drastically reduce your energy costs. Tinting limits the amount of sunlight and UV rays from entering your building, which not only keeps your furniture, rugs, and upholstery from fading, but has the added bonus of cutting your energy costs.
Blocking out rays in the summer puts less strain on your HVAC system and helps keep your building cooler when you need it.
