Security films are made of clear polyester film along with an adhesive, UV absorber, and scratch resistant coatings. The polyester portion can range from 2 mil – 15 mil in thickness. The thickness depends on the use for the film. The thicker the film, the more protection.
Frame attachments may be added to add even more resistance to break-ins.
Business Owners/Property Managers – If smash and grab is a concern at your place of business, security window film will help protect not only your goods, but also the clean up. As you can see from the picture above, security film will hold the glass together and not only will that keep intruders out, but will also keep the glass from flying all over the place. Schools can be another great location for security film.
Homeowners – Security window film is a great addition to your home. Regardless of the community you live in, security film will help keep intruders out while maintaining your view, unlike security screens.

In Arizona, security window film meets building codes when it comes to upgrading windows. Security film (safety film) adds a layer of thickness that increases the safety of the glass in case of an accidental breakage.
