Security films are multi-layered films with state of the art bonding systems that adhere to the inside of a window or door. When an attempt is made to smash the glass, correctly installed security film makes it extremely hard to gain access to the building as it holds the glass in place and in its frame. Many intruders will give up on trying to get through a window if security film has been applied.

Many insurance companies suggest and endorse the use of commercial security films on businesses where intrusion could be an issue. Insurance companies, in many cases, will reduce their insurance premiums if quality security films are professionally installed on a commercial property.
Safety Films Reduce Injuries From Broken Glass
Safety films are a thinner type of security film used when accidental glass breakage may be a problem. Safety films are manufactured using the same multi-layered process and same bonding systems as security film. Safety films are used in areas where adverse weather or natural disasters like earthquakes or hurricanes may cause windows to shatter or break. Safety film is recommended for glass around children or the elderly where the possibility of an accident occurring around the glass is an issue. Sporting venues, gymnasiums and homes around golf courses can all benefit from the peace of mind that safety films give us.
Safety film works in much the same way as security film holding broken glass together and helps prevent flying glass shards causing injury. Safety films are also available with solar control, privacy and UV-reducing properties.
