Three Reasons You Need 3M Window Security Film

By | safety & security Films | No Comments

Most people would never leave their home and family vulnerable or unprotected. Even the idea of such a thing is absolutely absurd. However, many businesses, schools, and commercial building managers leave their goods and locations unprotected, which is equally absurd.

Of course, there may be a reason for this. Perhaps businesses or schools leave their locations vulnerable because they believe that great security will cost too much or take too much time to install.

Those worries may have been valid in the past, but with today’s modern 3M window security film solutions, businesses, schools, and government properties can finally keep their locations, schedules, and budgets secure.

The Commercial Window Film Advantage

Commercial security window film is a convenient, easy-to-install, and affordable solution that keeps your building, people, and property safe from many of today’s unwanted intrusions by providing a dual protective layer to harden your glass and reduce its likelihood of shattering when hit with a blunt instrument like a rock, brick, or bat.

Therefore, the #1 thing that security film does is help stop a would-be intruder from gaining access into a building, whether that’s for smash-and-grab theft or an active shooter scenario, by delaying the “smash” part of the crime. Though the film won’t resist attack forever, it should block a would-be intruder’s access to your business/school and property long enough for the police to arrive on the scene.

In fact, security window film is so effective that the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission’s (SHAC) final report recommended window film as an effective measure to mitigate an active shooter’s entry into a school.

However, commercial window film does a lot more than block crime. Here are three more reasons why you should invest in 3M window security film:

  1. Cost

Not only is window film an effective school security feature that’s fast and inexpensive to install, it also helps you avoid losses from burglary. Without window film, you’ll be responsible for any theft and physical damages that need fixing and businesses will experience loss of income from downtime. Plus, schools, businesses, and government buildings will also have to handle emergency, overnight guard services, which can add up while you’re waiting on glass replacement. Security film reduces costs by minimizing downtime as well as the need for emergency services.

  1. Safety

Glass can be very dangerous. Flying glass is always incredibly dangerous. Since the world and its inhabitants are unpredictable and you can never foresee the events that lead to flying bits of glass, you can trust in 3M window security film to mitigate the hazards of flying glass or glass spall brought about by natural or human causes in any type of building.

  1. Asset Protection

We mentioned above how commercial window film protects your school/business or property by limiting a would-be intruder’s access to your building. In addition, 3M window security film can also extend the life of your merchandise or assets by significantly reducing the harmful UV rays that are the main cause of fading. That’s double protection for your property.
