How Security Film Protects Homes From More Than Just Break-Ins

March 24, 2020 in Aggrigate, Safety And Security Window Film

Denver is a pretty safe city to live in and raise a family.  But, like any city in the US, crime is still an issue. The biggest crime that residents of Denver face are break-ins to their homes.  A way to protect against this is with security window film. It is a way to slow down or stop an intruder altogether. It works because it takes multiple blows to penetrate which often deters burglars.  But, as you will see, there are other benefits to security window film for Denver homes as well.

Additional Benefits of Security Film for Denver homeowners

Security film is a powerful way to protect your home from crimes of theft and there are a bunch of other important benefits from these films too.

Security Film Protects From Accidents in Homes

Any area in your Denver home with glass in it has the potential for an unfortunate accident. Glass by staircases, showers, pools or very large plate glass windows are all intrinsically dangerous.  Should someone fall into them–they could sustain life-threatening injuries. When security and safety window film is applied to these windows it keeps glass safely adhered to the film. It works so well that security films can be used as a workaround for tempered glass to bring your home up to code.

Security Film Protects From Natural Disasters

When a natural disaster strikes,  one of the biggest sources of injury to humans is from glass.  From tornados to earthquakes– glass tends to break during natural disasters. Typically it explodes outward and harms bystanders.  Not when the glass is treated with security window film though. The glass stays safely adhered to these films in tiny shards where it cannot hurt anyone.

Security Film Protects from UV Exposure

Most people don’t realize that the rays of the sun beaming into their homes can be a cause of illness and disease.  From migraines to melanomas–unchecked UV rays are a real danger. Security window film blocks 99.9 % of these rays from entering into your home.  Keeping your family healthier and better protected from some types of skin and eye cancers.

Understanding The Benefits of Safety and Security Window Film

March 4, 2020 in Aggrigate, Safety And Security Window Film

A good way to keep your Denver business protected from crime is safety and security window film. Robberies are one of the biggest problems brick and mortar businesses face. Typically, these are things like “smash and grabs”. This is when an intruder breaks a window of a business and quickly scoops us as many valuables as they can. Security window film prevents this type of crime because it takes away a burglar’s ability to quickly break the window. With safety and security window film, the glass stays adhered to the film–making it all but impossible for a fast and quiet entry. But, what most people don’t realize is–there are other many benefits associated with security film.

The Lesser-Known Benefits of Safety and Security Film

When it comes to safety and security film–its power to prevent smash and grab crimes is unparalleled and proven. But there are more benefits to these types of film than one may imagine.

  1. Safety Window Film Protects Against Natural Disasters: When the powerful Denver winds start blowing–one of the greatest threats to humans safety is glass from shattered windows. Just like the glass stays soundly adhered to safety window film during a burglary, so too does it stay in place even against when struck by flying debris.
  2. Safety Window Film Is a Work Around For Tempered Glass: When a commercial space gets renovated, there are almost lways other updates that need to be done to bring the location up to code. One common update that is required is–safety glass installed in existing glass windows or doors. Replacing the full panels of glass is very expensive and time-consuming. So, instead of replacing the entire panel of glass, commercial building owners can have safety and security films applied. This is a workaround to bring it up to code. And, will save commercial investors a good amount of time and money.
  3. Safety Window Film Protects From UV Exposure: The rays of the sun here in Denver are strong due to our high altitude. This means heat transmits inside buildings and harmful UV rays bombard residents as well. But, when you treat the windows of your Denver commercial space with safety window film you essentially get a 2-for-1. You get a film that will stop flying glass and block 99% of harmful UV rays.

There is a lot more to safety window film than meets the eye! To learn more and for pricing for your Denver commercial space or home contact us at Denver Home Window Tinting today!

Which Window Films Work Best To Keep Heat Out?

August 12, 2019 in Aggrigate, Energy Efficient Window Tinting

Here in Colorado, we get a lot of sun and we are at a higher altitude too. Which means the sunlight here is more intense and heats up homes faster than at lower elevations. So it makes sense that one of the most common requests from our potential customers here is–” which window films keep the heat out?”. The simple answer is those that block solar heat gain because this is what is responsible for your home being 20-degrees hotter than it is outside and rooms that are too hot to sit in–even with the A/C blasting. Luckily we carry window films specifically made to combat this heat gain. But to understand which window films are best at keeping that heat out you must first understand a bit about the heat itself.

Where Excess Heat Comes From

The sun’s rays through and onto glass are primarily what make you home uncomfortably hot. But the sun’s rays are made up of three parts. The part that is responsible for heat is the infrared rays. By addressing the infrared part of solar radiation, you will stop most of the heat that is making you uncomfortably hot in your Denver home. But there is another factor involved. The air you are cooling with A/C is escaping–primarily from the glass on your windows. Glass is a poor insulator and some window films is a good one. Therefore to solve your home’s excess heat problems–a window film must block infrared rays and insulate.

Which Films Work To Block Heat Causing Infrared Sunlight

Any reputable window film will reflect infrared light away from windows to some degree. If you are looking to really prevent heat build-up on the glass of your Denver home and lower temperatures Low-E window films are a good solution. E stands for “emissivity” and the lower the emissivity or e-value of a window film, the better it is at reflecting heat off glass. For regular films, the e-value is around 87% but on Low-E window films the e-value typically ranges from 7%-65% (7% keeping the most heat out). But, as we mentioned before, insulation is also something to consider. Therefore, window films that are both Low-E and have superior insulation properties are the best way to keep your Denver home cooler. These films will both keep heat out and keep the air you pay to cool in, saving you money and making your home incredibly more comfortable. Some of our favorite Low-E films (that we often recommend to our Denver customers) are Enerlogic, Solar Gard Silver AG and 3M Thinsulate.

How to Get Started Installing Residential Bird Strike Window Film for Denver Homes

July 24, 2019 in Aggrigate, Residential Window Film

Denver homes can all experience the same issue when it comes to bird strikes. Having a bird collide into your window can be stressful and disconcerting for many individuals. Especially when you’re relaxing at home. Bird collisions also can cause glass damage and unsightly clean ups. No homeowners likes dealing with these incidents on a consistent basis. While fritted glass is the most common solution for this, it requires lenghty installations and high financial costs. Fritted window film, also known as bird strike window film, offers the budget-conscious alternative.

The Advantages of Residential Bird Strike Window Film for Your Denver Home

Fritted window film has the same subtle, patterned decals as authentic fritted glass. It costs a fraction of the price and can easily be installed in a day or two in any home. The decals work together to create a reflective look to alert birds that there’s a window in front of them. Aesthetically, bird strike window film subtly changes your exterior. It creates a reflective, modern look with the patterns only visible when up close. This specialty window film reduces cleanups and glass damage caused by bird collisions.
