What is Security Window Film?

What is Security Window Film?

Security Film is manufactured from single or multiple layers of tough, optically clear polyester film, which is then laminated together in a variety of constructions. One side of the window film is coated with an extremely powerful adhesive formula, which is then applied to the interior surface of the glass/window, whilst the exterior (room facing) side of the window is protected with a special scratch-resistant coating.

How does Security Film work?

Security and safety window films adhere to the window and act as a protective layer, which makes the glass window stronger and harder to break from entry. The security window film also helps to secure shards and splinters if the glass should shatter from an unwanted security threat. When the film is applied to the glass on your doors and windows, it will prevent intruders from gaining instant entry to your premises by increasing the resistance of the glass.

Benefits of Security & Safety Film

In many cases, security film applied to windows and doors can dissuade intruders and burglars from breaking in and/or succeeding by making the glass significantly harder to break. If persistent, the film will either prevent them from gaining access or, at the very least, impose a delay which will allow them to instigate preventative action.

Our Range of Security Window Film

Our security window film is available in a wide range of thicknesses. Starting at 100 microns thick and extending to 350 microns thick, we supply and install window films for all levels of security. All of our window films are tested and approved to the relevant British, European and International standards to ensure full compliance to health and safety legislation and regulations for all types of commercial and residential buildings and premises.

Our security window film is available in optically clear versions or combined heat reduction, anti glare window film and energy control window film versions. There are highly reflective variations of window film which deliver the added benefit of visual security where this is required.

All of our security window film comes with a manufacturer backed warranty, usually for 10 years – sometimes more, to ensure full peace of
mind when it comes to the quality and lifespan of our window films.

For a relatively small on-cost, you can receive all of these additional benefits and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Security window film works in a similar way to windscreen glass on a car. The lamination prevents the glass from shattering on impact and adds extra security by making windows and doors fitted with the film much harder to break into.

    YOnce applied it can be difficult to remove security window film. However, our technicians will be able to help if removal is required. It is worth noting that these security window films cannot be reused once they have been removed.

    Our security window films range in thickness from 100 up to 350 microns. The thicker films are created by laminating multiple layers of film together and are used to provide maximum protection to a window or door.
