To summarize, security window film significantly improves the security of your building.
Protection for Commercial
And Public Buildings
Protecting Your Assets
Security threats to your building come in all forms, ranging from natural disasters to theft and vandalism. All of these situations can put your tenants in danger. Therefore, a comprehensive, tiered security plan offering multiple layers of protection is the best way to provide the highest level of protection possible.
Security and safety window films play a crucial part in the first line of defense. It provides a barrier that holds the glass in place upon impact. As a result, security film also helps to reduce the safety issues and costly damage associated with broken glass.
When an unprotected window shatters, dangerous shards of glass can fly through the air. Consequently, this can cause severe injuries and leave your building’s tenants and assets exposed to the elements. Security window film holds the window glass in place even against a strong force. Upon impact, the film protects against shards of glass from flying, offering protection to the people inside. By providing a layer of protection with security window film, attempts at breaking through the glass can be delayed, which could help stop or reduce the security threat.
From Security Threats to Extreme Weather
01 Severe Weather
Security films help to reduce damage and the likelihood of injury from flying glass in the case of severe weather and impact events. While you can’t always predict disaster, you can prepare for it. The west coast has the highest earthquake risk in Canada; several thousand small earthquakes occur every year. Over the last ten years, there has been an average of one large earthquake of at least magnitude 6 per year. Earthquakes are something we must prepare for.
Chance of Earthquake
02 Forced Entry
Security films offer maximum resistance to penetration and tearing, effectively deterring break-ins. Therefore, by upgrading your windows, you will rob would-be thieves of their two desired essentials: time and stealth. Thieves plan on being in and out of your business in a matter of minutes. If a window refuses to break after multiple tries, the amount of noise they have made will be alerting the whole neighbourhood, and the extra time it takes them is usually enough to force them into an early retreat.
Increase in Thefts
When vandals strike, the transparent film is peeled away –along with the graffiti – saving time and money. Additionally, the window films easily remove when needed, and applying the new film is much cheaper than entirely new windows. If you are in an area that is prone to vandalism, perhaps downtown or on a poorly lit side street, we might suggest you choose an anti-graffiti film. This film is even cheaper to install and replace as needed. For more information on the anti-graffiti film click here.
