Security Window Film Lets You Sleep Easy at Night
No matter how careful you are around your house, you never know when something is going to happen. It could be that rock flying out from the lawn mower, the kids playing baseball in the back yard, or an unexpected break-in. Although glass has been around for centuries, it’s still surprisingly unstable, rigid, fragile, and thoroughly breakable. And accidents can and do happen.
The glass in our home windows can be broken at any time for many different reasons, and many times they are no accident at all. Whether we live in the wealthy burbs or have a ground floor apartment on a busy inner city main street, the glass is usually the weakest link in our home security. Even if your windows are alarmed, someone can break through and disable the alarm if they know how. And you’d be left with the mess.
Another common security options is installing metal bars or metal grates on the windows. This is pretty common in big, bad cities like New York City, but feels quite out of place here on the friendly Front Range. Although bars might be a necessity in some areas, wouldn’t they make you feel like you were in prison? And someone or something could still break your glass windows, right through the bars. Although they would be denied access, you’d still have a dangerous mess to clean up and the cost of replacing the glass.
By installing security window film, you can rest easy, knowing that your windows are protected.
Here’s how security window films work. They are a wholly different product than the energy saving, green products people have installed to cut down on glare, UV rays, and their heating and cooling costs. The type of product we are calling “security film” is made up of a strong virtually unbreakable polyester mesh. It bonds to the glass in the windows, holding it together even whether the window is merely cracked or is completely shattered to miniscule slivers.
The results? No mess to clean up. No entry into the premises. The removal and replacement of the window pane will be simple and much more painless.
Imagine the look on a would-be hoodlum or burglar’s face when he heaves a brick into your window, expecting immediate access and destruction. Only to find his efforts in vain, completely and totally thwarted by your security window film.
