Security Film for Windows: Protection from Broken Glass in Earthquakes
A recent earthquake in Napa Valley that measured 6.0 left residents sweeping glass off floors and streets in the aftermath. Fortunately, there were no casualties, and hospitals reported only routine injuries and illnesses. Nevertheless, the event proves how vulnerable glass structures and materials can be when subjected to the right amount of impact or pressure. Fortunately, there is a way for you to protect yourself. Installing security window film on glass panes can significantly reduce the risk of injury from broken glass. Made of thin yet strong plastic adhesive material, protective window film can bind a pane so that it remains in position even if the glass breaks.
