Protection must start first with PREVENTION.

Our Safety and Security films  PREVENT  forced entry altogether!

Performing as invisible shields of protection, a burglars’ plans to break through your glass are simply foiled.

Our films are a “bummer” to smash and grab thieves but they are valuable gifts for store owners:

  • Safety and Security window films can help the performance of ordinary glass by holding glass together under extreme stress.
  • Safety and Security window films offer a variety of shades, from clear to darker tints.
  • Besides providing powerful protection, Safety and Security window film is extremely energy efficient offering heat, glare, and UV rejection.
  • There are various thicknesses to choose from, typically 4 mil and 8 mil is used for our residential and commercial applications.

The performance of Safety and Security window film can be increased by forming a bond between the film, the glass, and the window frame. This extra strength is accomplished  with our wet glaze attachment system installed with Dow Corning #995 structural adhesive silicon. It is essential that qualified professionals with the proper skill set install a wet glaze attachment system.

Retailers Stop Burglaries with Safety & Security Window Film

The goal of a burglar is to get in and out of your store as quickly as possible and with as little noise as possible. The strongest advantage for the intruder to accomplish this….and the biggest disadvantage for you, the business owner, is your glass.

commercialSafety crime scene 3

Retail outlets are easy targets for burglars. Inventory that can be easily seen through glass is free advertising for thugs. Often, just your signage or website can be enough to attract smash and grabbers. They readily see the hours you’re open and what’s up for the taking. As of late, windows and glass doors have done little to stop businesses from being smashed and looted during tense demonstrations.

prevention
Thanks to window tinting Tampa retail stores with our selection of safety and security films, there have been multiple incidents of attempted break-ins that were foiled.

 

When there is an attempted robbery, a heavy object is traditionally used to hit glass with enough velocity to cause the glass to break inward.

That’s it.  A couple of hits and you have company!

Even the best equipped alarm system alone is not adequate protection. The signal is tripped, the alarm goes off, the intruder is in… and has plenty of time to “rip you off” before police arrive.

Prevent thugs from getting through your glass in the first place!

The application of an 8 mil or thicker window film is highly resistant to impact by brute force. The barrier it forms delays, deters, and can totally deny burglars. Those who do try busting undetected filmed glass are surprised with the inability to swiftly break through and quickly realize that entering would take more time than anticipated and a lot of noise would be created with all the additional blows to the window. The time delay and noise factor are generally sufficient to scare off most would-be robbers empty handed. – making an investment in safety and security film extremely well worth it.

Call us for more information about how we also add an attachment system to your windows and frames to create an even stronger barrier. With this barrier of protection on your glass, you can become a burglar’s worst nightmare.

We offer free demonstrations ….and peace of mind!
