They may be functional, practical and beautiful, but glass doors and windows are usually the weakest points in a building’s exterior. They are at risk of incurring damage from vandals, break-ins, severe weather and other natural and man-made threats. 3M Safety & Security Window Films can help protect your home, office, business or school and the occupants inside.
Broken glass from break-ins and other impact events can cause personal injury and property damage – and allow storm debris or intruders to enter. Protective window films are designed to hold glass fragments together, reducing injuries from flying shards and making it more difficult to break through.
3M Safety & Security Window Film is so effective at reducing injuries from flying glass, a federal Government GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule was created for this application after the Oklahoma City bombing resulted in catastrophic injuries from flying glass. GSA Schedules are long-term governmentwide contracts with commercial firms to provide federal, state and local government buyers with access to commercial products and services at volume pricing.
Available clear or tinted for sun control, security window films are proven to hold shattered glass together after an impact, preventing sharp shards and flying projectiles. The patented multi-layer, tear-resistant qualities of 3M Safety & Security Film make the film/glass combination much harder to break and enter through than unprotected glass. This can delay intruders and allow up to two extra minutes for people to take shelter or call for help.
By keeping shattered glass intact, security window film also reduces injuries and saves time and money on clean-up.
