Keeping your home or business safe is a top priority. You may have already had a security system installed to help deter theft and give yourself peace of mind. What you may not be aware of is that security film can be installed on your exterior windows and glass doors to work in tandem with your security system and provide an extra layer of protection.
How It Works
Security film will keep the glass in your windows intact when, under high stress, untreated windows would normally shatter, allowing burglars entry into your property. Security film will make it much more difficult for thieves to break through your glass and gain entry – it may discourage them all together, or, at the very least, cause a delay that can give your security company and/or the police more time to respond. Security films come in a wide variety of thickness, starting at 4mm all the way up to 21mm, which has the capacity to stop a 22-caliber bullet. (Please not that this does not make the glass surface entirely bullet proof.) As a frame of reference, most government buildings use security film with an approximate 8-10mm thickness, which generally secures the building against bomb detonation and significant weather events like hurricanes. Security film can be installed as a clear film or even can be tinted to help keep your building cooler in the heat of the summer. So, when it comes to finding the best match for security film for your home or business, you will have a lot of choices.
Other important benefits of having security film installed on your property include:
● Protection of exterior glass from scratches, graffiti, and other vandalism
● Reduction in insurance claims for broken glass
● Installing security films on mirrors, tabletops and other flat surfaces in your business can significantly reduce out of pocket expenses associated with vandalism.
Security Film Installation Process
Team Acme has years of experience installing security film for homes, offices and other commercial sites. The first step in the installation process is getting measurements of the windows that you would like treated. Exact measurements allow for the best possible results. In our shop, our expert technicians professionally cut the film to meet the measurement specifications. We carefully place the film on your windows with a special solution of water, alcohol, and soap. Finally, a lock or adhesive is necessary to keep the glass in place should it ever break. Once you’ve had security film installed, do not use ammonia based cleaning products!
