Finding the Right Security Window Film for Your Home

Here at Window Tint LA, we know that protecting our family is an extremely important responsibility. Let us help you protect your family and your home with security window film. We carry a variety of security film options to help secure your home windows and valuables.

What Is Security Film and How Does It Work?

Not all window films are made the same. Security film is a window film that is applied to the window to strengthen the glass against breaking or shattering. It also helps protect you and your family from razor-sharp glass particles in case of an emergency or if the glass shatters. It is designed to give you protection while maintaining the integrity and appearance of your home.

In case of a break-in, the security window film can deter a thief from penetrating or breaking your windows. It will increase the amount of force needed to break the glass and prevent the glass from shattering into a million pieces and allowing the burglar to come into your home. The security film on your window can protect your family from injuries from broken glass as well as help you keep your valuables safe at home.

In instances of natural disasters or severe weather, the film will protect your glass from high winds or flying objects that might cause the glass to shatter. We also highly recommend installing security window film in areas near swimming pools. There are many instances where someone might slip near a pool and crash into a sliding door. The window film will help keep accidents and injuries to a minimal degree.

Security window film is also perfect for areas frequented by children, such as children’s bedrooms, playrooms, or study. Because the film prevents glass shattering on windows, you can be assured that children won’t be stepping on glass shards if the window does break.

This film is also applied differently from solar film. Security film is applied to the interior of the glass. In addition, we offer an attachment system which is a structural silicone sealant system that will bond the film to the window frame for extra strength. The silicon sealant system will also increase the security film’s performance. While this window film is very strong, it is not resistant to bullets.

Security Films and Different Thicknesses

Security film comes in different thicknesses to meet your specific needs, unlike a solar film. To prevent break-ins, typically we would recommend a safety film with a thickness of 6 Mil to 7 Mil. Thicker films such as 8 Mil to 15 Mil would be best in instances where the film is intended to help protect against natural disasters like earthquakes, tornadoes, or hurricanes.

The thicker the film, the stronger and more resistant it will be.  The films won’t necessarily prevent the glass from breaking, but it will help keep the glass intact to protect you from glass fragments and shards.

How Much Does Security Film Cost?

The cost of security film depends on multiple factors. The best way to get an accurate price is by having one of our highly experienced consultants visit your property. Our consultants will take measurements, bring you different film samples that are yours to keep, and provide you with an estimate. Of course, the safety of your family doesn’t have a price, and the satisfaction of knowing they are safe is priceless.

UV Protection Window Tint For Luxury Retail Store

Rodeo Drive is primarily known for upscale shopping. In the heart of Beverly Hills, you will find many luxury retail stores, entertainment venues, and restaurants. The first high-end boutique, Giorgio Beverly Hills, was opened in 1967. Soon after, many other luxury shops opened their doors. Rodeo Drive eventually became the shopping street of the rich and famous.

In 2003, Rodeo Drive was given a makeover worth nearly 20 million dollars. The streets were widened and crosswalks were added. The area is now lined with palm trees. Later in the year the Walk of Style was developed. The Walk of Style features plaques set in the sidewalks. This was created in honor of fashion icons for their work in style and fashion.

For this project, we installed window film to block UV rays to product the merchandise in this retail store. Over time, heat and UV rays can cause fading of fabric, floors, furniture and other displays. Window film blocks 99.9% of these harmful rays, which will dramatically decrease the risk of fading.

Hollywood Window Tinting-A Wise Investment

Hollywood California is located in the central region in Los Angeles and is most commonly known as the “City where dreams come true”. Many people move to Hollywood for its beauty and lively ambiance. This city has many notable residents such as actors, singers, directors and government officials. This wondrous city in Los Angeles has many upscale charming homes that are worth every penny put into them including professional window film for added privacy, low energy bills and to reduce dangerous ultra violet rays.

Window Tinting is an investment-When it comes to your home window tinting is a major investment that pays off. Not only can you reduce your energy bills by running your air-cooling systems less, but you also make a positive impact on the ecological footprint you leave behind. Think of this as an investment not only for yourself but for our environment as well.

Relieve your concern for privacy-Windows allow for breath-taking views, warm sunlight but offer no privacy at all. Hollywood is a city known for its tourists and traffic making it easy for onlookers to invade your privacy. By installing privacy window film you’ll get a natural view from the outside looking in (so you can still enjoy that beautiful view you have) yet achieve a reflective/ mirror look from the outside looking in. You can even go with frosted glass which allows 80-90% of the natural light to shine in but will provide privacy both day and night. Frosted window film will block visibility in and out but it adds a gorgeous look to your windows.

UVA radiation dangers-Hollywood California is a very sunny location meaning lots of UVA radiation and damage. UVA radiation easily passes through your windows; these are the rays that are responsible for the aging of skin, fading of floors and furniture. At Window Tint LA all of the films we carry block 99.9% of the UV rays. Installing professional window film is a sure way to help protect yourself and your home.

Enjoying Sunny Santa Monica with Window Tint

Santa Monica is one of the most famous towns in Southern California. In fact, people all across America and from around the world have heard of this lovely ocean-side city and have seen it in movies and television shows and heard its name in songs. Real estate in Santa Monica is extremely valuable, and those people who live there know that they are fortunate to call such a desirable area home. If you are looking to make an update to your Santa Monica home that can increase its value even more, one of the best ways to do so is to update the windows with window tint. And think of this: window film might be the only residential improvement that ends up paying for itself in just a few short years.

Most days of the year (after the morning fog burns off) sunshine fills a Santa Monica home with light, making the property bright and inviting. But sunlight also fills a home with infrared solar energy, which can send the temperature soaring and make a residence too warm for comfort without the use of fans and air conditioning systems. Most homes in fact expend as much as fifty percent of their power bill on climate control. Residential window tint blocks as much as sixty percent or more of infrared warmth primarily responsible for heat gain, and keeps interiors cooler whether the sun is shining directly on the windows or not (infrared energy is not directional, so it can warm up your home even if the sun’s rays are coming right through the windows). The reduced use of AC will in turn reduce your energy bill enough to see window tint covering the cost of its own installation in time.

The other invisible portion of sunshine is ultraviolet light; this type of sunshine does not cause as much heat gain as infrared light, but it is the primary cause of faded and damaged interiors. UV light can discolor wood floors, bleach carpets, drapes, and upholstery, and fade (and eventually ruin) artwork and photographs you have hung on the walls. Museums and galleries use window film to protect the fine wares within their walls, and you can protect the furnishings in your Santa Monica home in just the same way. And when you don’t have to repair, restore, or replace the flooring, furniture, and decorations in your Santa Monica home, that means even more cost savings you will enjoy thanks to window tint. (And of course some things in your home can’t be replaced, so you need to protect them from ever becoming damaged.)

How To Clean Window Film

If you have recently had window film installed or are considering installing window film, you may be wondering how to clean your film and maintain it. Window Tint LA is here to help. We can answer your questions to help you maintain the quality and beauty of your window film.

The Curing Process

The curing process is the drying time for your window film. When your film is installed, the installer will use a squeegee to remove as much of the solution as possible. It is nearly impossible to remove it all; therefore your film goes through the curing process.

After your installation is complete, keep in mind it can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks for your film to fully cure. It is perfectly normal to see small water bubbles or hazing during this time. Be sure that you do not attempt to burst or poke the water bubbles during this time, as this will damage your film. The bubbles and cloudy appearance will eventually disappear.

Cleaning Your Film

It is recommended that you wait at least 30 days before cleaning your film. This will allow the film to cure properly. When cleaning use a clean soft cloth, clean synthetic sponge, or soft paper towel. Be sure not to scrub the film aggressively and do not use abrasive cleaning tools.

Normal glass cleaning products are safe to use on your film. Do not use solutions that have harsh materials such baking soda and ammonia-based products like Windex. These products can ruin the colors and adhesion of your film.

How Often You Should Clean Your Film

Window film is virtually maintenance free, unlike curtains or drapes. You only need to clean your film occasionally to prevent build up of dust. If you have children, pets, or if the window is low to the ground you may need to clean the film more often.

We provide completely free consultations are available 7 days a week. Call today 310-935-1748! We will be happy to install your window film!
