Window films are used to enhance the performance and safety of existing glass in buildings and vehicles. These films improve the external appearance of the glazing, and increase comfort and protection for the occupants. Solar control window films minimize glare and hot-spots; reduce solar heat gain and energy consumption; and virtually eliminate damaging UV radiation. Safety and security window films act as protective layers that will help hold fractured shards of glass together if the glass should shatter. Safety films are also available with solar control properties.
Benefits of Glass and Window Protection
A residential break-in happens every 90 seconds in Canada, with close to 25% of burglars entering homes through a first floor window. As the most vulnerable entry point of your home, windows are the first place where a smash-and-grab thief will attempt access, and a standard butterfly lock won’t be effective at discouraging even the most amateur criminal.
