Window Film Can Protect Your Family In An Emergency
Break-ins are a subject that most families would rather not think about. We don’t blame you. But even if you don’t want to think about it, the reality is that things like this can happen. By installing security window film on your ground floor windows, you can give yourself and your family peace of mind knowing that if someone does try to break in through a window, they won’t make much if any progress.
It isn’t really far-fetched at all that window film can protect your family. Your home’s windows may face out onto a busy city street, you may live in an area that is experiencing an uptick in the crime or burglary rate, or you might live in an exclusive community with homes that attract thieves. You might have all sorts of other security measures in place, from metal gates over your window or security alarm systems on all of the windows and doors. This definitely affords a certain level of security.
But if someone is trying to break in, an alarm can deter the burglar—but your window is already shattered. You’ll have a mess to clean up and a window to replace. Your burglar might know how to disable an alarm, or might take a chance that it isn’t really connected to the police or a security company, and they might enter anyway. But what if there was a way that your windows would simply deny a criminal any access? Wouldn’t you sleep better at night?
Here is how security window films can protect your family in case of a break in. First of all, we want you to know that security window films are an affordable and efficient option. They consist of a film with a polyester mesh embedded in it, that will hold the glass together in case of any attempt to shatter the window. Yes, your window might still shatter, but it will hold together, and whoever is trying to gain access will be thwarted. Yes, you will still have to replace both the glass pane, and of course the security window film, but there will be no mess of broken glass to clean up. No danger of anyone hurting themselves with the jagged glass fragments, which will remain in place, in the windowpane.
There is another kind of security window film that will not even shatter if the window is hit by a brick or a person wielding a bat! Yes, we know that’s a bit hard to believe, but if seeing is believing, take a look at this video of Llumar’s Anti Shatter Window Film.
Astounding, isn’t it. No one is coming in through your windows, guaranteed.
