Finding the Right Security Window Film for Your Home Posted on November 29, 2017April 16, 2018 by Kimberly Tejada 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.
