With 3M™ Safety and Security Films For Windows, your windows can help protect your home from severe weather as well as from threats such as break-ins and forced entry attempts. These films are designed to help hold the shattered glass in place, thus reducing potential injury from flying glass during severe weather, and reducing the likelihood of damaging water infiltration through the broken window or glass door. When a vandal attempts to paint or scratch your glass, they damage the film instead. You then simply have the film stripped off and replaced, at a fraction of the cost of otherwise replacing the glass or window itself. Because these films help hold the glass together, security films for windows create a stronger more resistant barrier that when combined with an attachment system can slow or even prevent attempts by an intruder to enter a building or secure area are by shooting or smashing through the glass, enabling occupants time to seek safety or to summon law enforcement. The tough film holds the shattered glass together, requiring significant additional effort and time to break through. This slows down the intruder and results in more noise to the point where the criminal may choose to move on to an easier target, or allowing occupants of the building time to seek safety and for responder teams to be called.
