Safety glass ﬁlms fall into one of two categories:
No, safety and security window ﬁlm will not keep glass from breaking. Instead, it is designed to hold the broken glass together, and in place, providing safety from ﬂying glass or deterring the would-be criminal.
While not designed or tested on it’s efﬁcacy at stopping bullets, these ﬁlms may offer some protection at stopping , or at least deﬂecting the path of a ﬁred object.
Many of the safety and security ﬁlms we offer are recognized by code inspectors as qualifying as tempered glass if installed by our team of technicians. We can provide application decals on the glass as well as product speciﬁcation sheets that indicate as such.
Some safety & security ﬁlm speciﬁcations now require the installation of a frame attachment system. This system serves as a bond between the glass and the frame and increases the strength of the system against the entire window being pushed in or dislodged. Most government buildings are now requiring this technology in addition to the ﬁlm.
Anti-grafﬁti ﬁlms serve as a barrier between the actual glass or other surface and a vandal seeking to inﬂict grafﬁti damage. When installed on glass, a mirror or other ﬂat surface, the ﬁlm absorbs the damage and can be removed and replaced, sparing the expense and hastle of glass replacement.
