Win­dow film secu­ri­ty is a sim­ple yet pow­er­ful lay­er of pro­tec­tion that can safe­guard you, your belong­ings and your busi­ness.

In addi­tion to mak­ing your glass win­dows and doors much hard­er to break, secu­ri­ty film can deter theft, increase ener­gy effi­cien­cy and block the sun’s harm­ful UV rays, in addi­tion to numer­ous oth­er ben­e­fits.

Here are 6 rea­sons to con­sid­er installing it at your res­i­dence or busi­ness.

1) Prevent glass from breaking

Win­dow film secu­ri­ty is an ultra-strong film that you place on glass win­dows or doors. Avail­able in var­i­ous thick­ness­es and strengths, the film can make the glass sig­nif­i­cant­ly hard­er to break, crack or shat­ter.

By strength­en­ing the glass, you low­er the risk of break­age from intru­sion, acci­dents, van­dal­ism and weath­er. This pro­tects you and your belong­ings while also pre­vent­ing the high costs of hav­ing to repair your win­dow or door.

2) Keep intruders out

Sta­tis­tics show that near­ly 70% of all bur­glar­ies involve forced entry through a win­dow or door. Often, all it takes is break­ing the glass to get inside.

Secu­ri­ty win­dow film keeps those intrud­ers out by mak­ing the glass sig­nif­i­cant­ly hard­er to pen­e­trate. The high-strength film can resist ham­mers, rocks, bricks, crow­bars and oth­er tools com­mon­ly used by crim­i­nals.

Addi­tion­al­ly, if you com­bine the film with your alarm sys­tem’s glass break detec­tors, you dou­ble the pro­tec­tion of your home or busi­ness.

3) Lower energy bills

Win­dow film does more than keep out intrud­ers. It keeps out heat dur­ing the sum­mer and cold air in the win­ter, help­ing to reduce your ener­gy bills.

Heat-reflect­ing win­dow film acts like a shield, pro­vid­ing up to 84% solar ener­gy heat rejec­tion, so your air con­di­tion­ing does­n’t need to work as hard dur­ing the sum­mer. In the win­ter, it helps to pre­vent the heat inside your home from escap­ing.

4) Reduce UV rays

Win­dow film secu­ri­ty can block up to 99% of ultra­vi­o­let light enter­ing your win­dows and doors, pro­vid­ing sun­screen-like pro­tec­tion.

But that does more than just pro­tect your skin. It pro­tects your belong­ings and busi­ness assets, pre­vent­ing sun dam­age to your inte­ri­or floors, car­pet­ing, fur­ni­ture and more.

5) Keep prying eyes away

Secu­ri­ty film can be tint­ed to give your home or busi­ness greater pri­va­cy.

For some busi­ness­es, this pri­va­cy is actu­al­ly required by law. For exam­ple, secu­ri­ty film for cannabis dis­pen­saries in Ontario helps them to com­ply with the man­date that requires that “cannabis and acces­sories are not vis­i­ble from the exte­ri­or of the premis­es.”

Tint­ed win­dows also help to deter bur­glars if they can’t see inside the busi­ness.

For homes, tint­ed secu­ri­ty film pre­vents oth­ers from see­ing inside your res­i­dence with­out at all affect­ing your abil­i­ty to see out.

Tip: Don’t need tint­ed? No prob­lem. Secu­ri­ty win­dow film is also avail­able in clear and frost­ed options.

6) Prevent flying glass and broken shards

Bro­ken win­dows and doors aren’t just cost­ly. They’re dan­ger­ous.

Secu­ri­ty film helps pre­vent bro­ken shards from injur­ing that inside, espe­cial­ly in severe weath­er where glass could be blown around the res­i­dence or busi­ness.
