  • Protect Your Home With 3M™ Safety & Security Film

     In Security

    Home security is important. That’s why Americans spend millions of dollars every year on security systems, locks and alarms. Despite those investments, many homeowners fail to protect their home’s most vulnerable access points – its windows.

    If your existing windows are in bad shape, you might want to consider investing in new, impact-resistant windows, especially if you live in an area that’s susceptible to hurricanes. Replacing your windows, however, can be pricey.

    Fortunately, window film can help. 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film is a self-adhesive coating made of layered-polyester, which is designed to be tear resistant. Even thin films can offer incredible protection.

    In the event of impact, these films are designed to hold broken glass in place. Not only can they slow down intruders by up to two minutes (providing you valuable extra time to call the authorities) but they can also reduce the risk of broken glass related injuries.

    For even more protection, attachment systems are available. They bind the film to the window frame, making it even stronger. The film is typically adhered to the inside of the window, then a large bead of structural silicone, known as a wet glaze attachment system, is applied for added strength.

    While no window films are bullet proof, they can certainly deter most home invaders, who are looking for an easy score.

    Industry-leading security film and attachment systems from 3M are even strong enough to withstand a bomb blast. As a result, they’ve been installed at factories, schools, government buildings and retail stores across the country. Did you know that level of protection is available for your own home?

    3M™ Window Film can also protect your family and your furnishings from the sun’s harsh UV rays, when combined with solar films. Infrared rays from the sun can lead to skin cancer and premature aging. They can also cause your furnishings and flooring to fade. Luckily, 3M offers window films that can block up to 99 percent of the sun’s UV rays. Having window film installed on your home is like adding SPF 1000.

    Solar films can also shield you from high electricity bills, by rejecting heat and keeping cool air in.
