Give your Home an Added Layer of Protection against Burglars with a Security Window Film

The security of your family and your house is the one thing that cannot be compromised. But burglaries and home invasions do happen. And yes, it is true that there is no security system in the world that cannot be hacked into or broken into. However, this does not mean you are completely helpless.

One of the best ways of improving home security is by using a security window film. This film not only makes it effectively more difficult for burglars to break into your home, but equally important, it does not involve big dollar spending.

A Security Window Film can Help Protect your Family

As mentioned above, you can’t make your home 100% burglar-proof. But you can definitely fortify your home against break-ins. All you need is a thin sheet of security window film and your window glass can become more resistant to smash and grab burglars. Speed is of the essence to a burglar. They want to get in as quickly as possible, pick up whatever valuables they can find, and then be out. So typically, a rock or a hard smash to a window is all that is needed. However, by improving the strength of the window glass against hard impact, breaking and entering through windows can get difficult.

Another reason why using a security window film is advisable is if you live in a hurricane prone zone. Security window films are designed to keep the glass of the windows from smashing and scattering even when high velocity winds hit your home.

How do 3M™ Window Films for Safety & Security Work

Tristate Sun Control’s safety window film technology can shift the safety advantage to your corner. The security film is designed with an adhesive that makes it easy to apply the security film to any window. Once applied, the film bonds with the glass and because it is elastic in nature, breaking it is actually difficult. Anytime the glass is smashed, instead of disintegrating immediately, the film holds on to the shattered glass pieces. To break in, a burglar will need to continue to smash the window which means he will end up wasting precious time.

The second advantage of using a security window film is that it reduces visibility from prying eyes. So whether you are worried about burglars or over curious neighbors, 3M™ Window Films for Safety & Security can give your home an added layer of protection. Using the security window film also secures your home against extreme elements outside your home such as harsh UV rays. By filtering up to 97% of the harmful UV rays, 3M™ Window Films for Safety & Security can easily shield your home and your furnishings all year around.

The window films can be applied to both the interior and exterior of windows, and because they are designed to be optically clear, you don’t have to worry about compromising on natural light in your home.
