Protect Your Business’s Property
One of the main concerns for any property owner is the security of their property. For store owners and managers, the danger of theft is obvious. By making our storefront displays attractive for window shoppers, we also are whetting the appetites of smash-and-grab burglars. Ensuring the security of our windows is one of the best things you can do to keep your property safe.
Window film is an excellent retrofit solution to building security. Security Films can transform your store’s most obvious vulnerability, its windows, into one of its most secure points. Window films are incredibly strong, and hold glass together in the event of breakage. This prevents would-be burglars from entering through a smashed window, and also protects occupants from harm in the event of accidental breakage or extreme weather.

How Does Security Film Work?
Security films work as a binding force to hold together broken shards. The powerful adhesive and strong, flexible film means that even when broken, glass won’t fall apart. Consider when you’ve seen broken car windshields. Even in serious crashes, windshields typically hold together in a single piece, rather than shattering into thousands. Security window film holds your window together like auto glass.
Security films make gaining access through a window incredibly difficult. In most cases of smash-and-grab crime, burglars are trying to use speed to their advantage: they want to get in, grab as much as they can, and get out, all in a matter of seconds. Window film makes the first step of that process extremely time consuming and difficult. Once the burglar realizes that gaining entry to your building won’t be as easy as they’d planned, they’ll be long gone.
One of the best parts about security films is that they are nearly invisible once installed. Ensuring the safety and security of your property doesn’t have to change the way it looks, the way it would with a different retrofit like traditional wired glass. The visibility in and out of your windows will be unchanged for you and your customers.
Is it Easy to Install Security Film?
High quality window film is not a suitable DIY project. Window films that you can buy at a hardware store are optimized for easy DIY installation, but suffer hugely in terms of performance and longevity.
When it comes to your windows, it’s worth hiring a professional who has access to the highest quality products and tools available, has years of experience in the trade, and who’s work comes with a guarantee. Most jobs can be done in a single day, so it’s worth it to go pro.
