Having good security is crucial for any business that operates out of a brick-and-mortar location. Whether you’re the manager of a retail store, restaurant, hotel, or office building, you need a security system you can count on to keep your staff and property safe. Security window films provide Miami business owners with an easy, cost-friendly solution for improving building security. Below, we’ve discussed some of the different types of security film available today.


How Security Window Film Makes Your Location Safer

Cameras and alarms are good deterrents for scaring off criminals and alerting the authorities. But you also need to make sure that your building’s perimeter is secure and void of any vulnerabilities. This means protecting any areas made of glass including windows, glass doors, skylights, and exits/entrances with glass panes that can be easily broken. That’s where security window systems can help.

Security films make your location safer by increasing the shatter resistance and strength of glass areas. The film bonds directly to the glass and is secured safely in place. In turn, the glass is given added strength and flexibility. Upon impact, the glass will absorb some of the energy instead of breaking immediately. As a failsafe, it creates a tear-resistant barrier that prevents intrusion and holds broken shards in place.

Security films are effective for protecting against a wide range of dangers including break-in attempts, hurricanes and high speed winds, bomb blasts, and more.


Recommended Security Window Film Options

When choosing a security window film for your Miami business, it’s important to identify and analyze your building’s unique needs. Think critically about areas of weakness and what security threats you’re most likely to encounter. Here are some popular options you may want to consider:

  • Standard safety film: Safety films make for a great glass strengthening agent and can protect against accidents and everyday dangers.
  • Bomb blast protection film: For a more advanced option, consider bomb blast protection film. These films are designed to prevent windows from shattering during a blast.
  • Ballistic resistant window film: Ballistic resistant films are the most robust option on the market today. These scientifically advanced films are actually designed to protect against gunshots, making windows and glass panes bullet “resistant.”
