Surprising Facts About Security Film 

  1. There is no such thing as “bulletproof” window Film:  Many Miami residents come to us looking for “bulletproof” window film. In reality, there is no such thing as a truly “bulletproof” window. The more accurate wording is “bullet-resistant”. Specialty window films in coordination with the specialty C-bond adhesive and window framing systems will stop most bullets. However, any window/glass surface will eventually give way after multiple rounds.
  2. Security Window Film blocks UV rays: Most security window films will protect against UV rays. This makes it an extra-powerful investment! Not only will you be protected against dangers like bombs, ballistics, and break-ns but also increase the health and longevity of your family and furniture. 
  3. High-Power Security Window Film Requires Speciality Window Frames:  Many people believe security film is a stand-alone product. But, to be as effective as possible, you not only need film adhered with C-bond but also specialty window frames. Although this adds cost it also drastically increases the level of safety–even protecting your space from ballistics and bomb attacks.
