The last year and a half people have been spending a whole lot of time at home during the pandemic. Sadly, crime has risen too. Denver is a relatively safe city, but like many across the country has seen an increase in property crimes. Breaking and entering has become commonplace in neighborhoods from Washington Park to Park Hill and Littleton to Lone Tree. This has people in the Denver area looking to shore up their home security. For many homes, this means fortifying the glass on their windows and doors. This is the way most burglars gain entry. If you too are looking for a home security solution that will keep people out, security window film is a good place to start. It comes with other benefits too!
Safety Benefits or Security Window Film
While security film is designed to protect against people breaking your windows and getting in, it also offers quite a few other protections.
UV Protection With Security Window Film: The high-altitude sun is stronger than other places and here in Denver we get a ton. This means people here in Denver, even in their homes, see a lot of sun exposure. While security film is made to block out crime–it also blocks out UV rays–99.9%. This helps you and your family stay safer from certain types of eye and skin disease and your furnishings are safe from fading.
Protection From Accidents with Security Film: Security window film works because glass stays adhered in tiny fragments to the glass after being struck by a high-velocity blow. This not only keeps unwanted intruders out but keeps the glass in place should someone in your home slip and fall into it. Rather than giving way and breaking into large deadly shards, tiny pieces will stay together as a sheet in the glass features frame.
Protection From Natural Disasters: Here in Denver we see a lot of high wind storms and hail as well as the occasional tornado. These types of weather events cause massive damage to homes and businesses. Typically the biggest threat to people and property is flying objects hitting glass and causing it to explode. When you have safety glass on your windows, this does not happen. The glass will break but stay safely adhered to film where it cannot hurt anyone or damage anything.
