Security films are very thick and sturdy. They help hold the glass together in the face of impact from natural disasters, or manmade ones. They are very tough to get through, making it difficult even for the most determined burglars to break in.
Window films may be installed through a method called anchoring. There are two types of anchoring: wet-glazed and mechanical. The former involves the removal of the rubber surrounding the window and replacing it with a sealant that fills the space. Mechanical attachment, on the other hand, secures the film by overlapping it around the window, and securing it with bolts. Both methods ensure that the film will hold glass fragments and prevent them from flying around when the window is subjected to impact.
Security films are a good investment for any place that has a window, as they provide extra comfort and security. They are available in different thicknesses, tints, and grades and have been recognized by the federal government as a valuable add-on to a property.
