Safety Film Denver
While our most popular window film application is actually energy saving film, safety film Denver is becoming more and more popular with business owners throughout the metro area, and for good reason. If you’re a business owner, you’ve almost certainly got windows in your place of business, and while it’s great for natural light and aesthetics, the truth is that glass can be dangerous when broken, and protecting your employees and your assets is important.
About Safety Film for Businesses
Safety tinting is a transparent or slightly tinted film that can be applied to your windows for protection against broken glass, and against potential intruders. Originally developed in the 1970s, security film actually holds the glass in a window together in the event of a break, instead of allowing the glass to shatter.
You may be faced with shattering glass not only in the event of an attempted break-in, but also from natural disasters and extreme weather. Leaving your company unprotected can open up the possibility to thousands of dollars in damage and less safety overall in your facility. Typically windows simply were not designed to withstand forced entry attempts or harsh natural forces, so you can’t count on your existing windows to protect you. While there are regulations in place today requiring tempered glass in some areas, these were not in place until the 1970s, so there are still thousands of buildings today without tempered glass.
While we always hope that your property is never anywhere near a terrorist attack, the possibility is evident today. Being near to a bombing or explosion can be another source of glass shattering force to your windows. It doesn’t take nearly this much force to shatter glass, so if this happens near your building, you’ll almost certainly experience some level of breakage. Installing safety film can protect you and your employees from serious injuries in the event of any nearby explosion.
With technological advances in the past few decades, security film has come a long way in terms of thorough protection for your facility. With this application today, your windows will become nearly unbreakable by human force at all, and if they do break, you won’t have to worry about any shattering or flying glass; it will all stay put because of the tinting application. This also means that if someone tries to break in, they won’t be able to break the glass out enough to actually get into your building without taking a very, very long time to do it.
Choosing Safety Film with Scottish Window Tinting
Safety film is often described as glass fragment retention film or anti-shatter film, which is accurate to its functionality. Today, most security options are slightly tinting, although they look clear when installed, to also help with solar heat blockage. This means you’ll be getting two extremely helpful benefits with one product, and it can make a big difference in the safety of your space.
