Home Window Film For Home Invasion Protection

Safety & Security Films are very powerful against home invasion.  They are designed to make the window glass more shatter-resistant, similar to laminated glass and this is why they are so effective.  If an intruder trie to break a window in your home, the broken glass remains firmly attached to the film–meaning the window cannot be easily penetrated and the would-be thief cannot enter your home without substantial efforts and time.  

Home Window Film As A Safety Glass Alternative

Building codes today often require tempered or laminated glass in “dangerous” areas” prone to dangerous slip and fall accidents: glass doors, bathroom glass, windows on balconies or at the bottom of staircases. When remodeling your home you often need to bring these areas up to code and replacing the glass with tempered glass is expensive! Window film, on the other hand, is a cost-effective and suitable workaround for installing tempered or laminated glass.

Home Window Film For Sun Protection

The research from scientist and health professionals is increasingly  linking UV rays to many negative health outcomes such as:

  • premature skin aging and wrinkles
  • Collagen damage
  • Skin cancer
  • Eye cancer and disease

So, the untreated windows in your Denver home, which let in caustic rays from the sun could be adding increased and needless risks to your family –because glass alone will not stop UV rays.  Window film, which blocks 99.9% of harmful rays (including UVA and UVB) and offers the same protection as an SPF 2000 sunscreen is a solid way to protect you and your family from deadly diseases stemming from the sun.

Window Film For Natural Disaster Protection

Here in Denver, we get a lot of powerful storms from not only hail but the occasional tornado and even, hurricane force winds.  Having window film applied greatly reduces the risk of injury from natural disasters and storms by preventing flying shards of broken glass, and also inhibits debris and water penetration through the windows.
