Reasons to Install Residential Security Window Film for your Phoenix Home in 2021
2020 was a tough year all around. From the coronavirus pandemic to curfew restrictions, the housing market explosion, and beyond, there were too many wild incidents to count that occurred this past year. On top of this, there were several incidents which took place that made many people question their security methods.
While the chaos seems to be subsiding in 2021, now is still not a bad time to consider residential security window film for your Phoenix home. Below, we’ve discussed how this technology works and some of the safety features and benefits homeowners can enjoy.
What Exactly Is Residential Security Film?
Residential security film is a type of passive security system that gets installed on the windows of a home. Unlike most other home security methods (cameras, alarms, etc.), these security films do much more than warn the homeowner about a break-in — they actually delay and slow down the intruder.
Perhaps the best way to understand security film is to think of it as a thick, tear-resistant plastic wrap. The film is installed on both sides of the glass so that if the window breaks, the broken shards will be contained safely within the separate layers. Furthermore, the film stays in place even when the window is broken.
Now imagine how surprised an intruder would be if they encountered this unexpected barrier in their way! Most either give up or are caught because it takes them so long to figure out how to get through the film.
