Security: Keep the Bad Out
3M Window Films use innovation to help save lives and protect property. Windows are one of the most vulnerable parts of the building envelope. Sometimes the security of your home or office is threatened by nature, other times by people. No matter from where the threat comes, 3M Safety & Security Window Films can help you prepare.
One of the fastest ways for an intruder to gain entry into a home or office is through the window. Whether prying the lock or breaking the glass, a building’s window is a weak point. 3M Safety & Security Window Films help deter smash-and-grab burglars by eliminating their most crucial weapon – time.
Security window film, also known as fragment retention film, was credited for saving many lives in the September 2001 terrorist attack on the Pentagon. When an explosion occurs, nearby glass may implode into tiny sharp fragments and subject building occupants to a high level of danger. Third party testing has shown that 3M Safety & Security Films hold glass in place during an explosion. 3M fragment retention films meet or exceed federal government standards when tested to the GSA/DOD/USACE Security Criteria.
