Solar Art installed security window film to a home in Burbank, California! This customer has large windows in the front of their home that face their front yard and the street. They love the windows because of the natural light they let in and the way it makes the home look. With that being said, they didn’t like the fact that if there ever was an intruder, the inside of their home is fully visible. In addition to the safety issue, with all of the earthquakes in California lately, the customer was also looking for something to protect their home in the case of a natural disaster. The homeowner did research online on earthquake safety and they came across a security window film article. They reached out to Solar Art to learn more about it! A lot of people don’t know even know what security window film is, so we will start with the basics. Security window film is a protective layer of window film that is installed directly onto glass surfaces. Window security film helps strengthen glass by 2-3 times and essentially holds the pieces together if it does get hit. This is great if a natural disaster like an earthquake or a storm does happen.
While security window film won’t completely stop someone or something from getting through, it will prolong forced entry time. What this means is help has more time to get there, which is a huge benefit seeing that 23% of burglars get access to a home through a first floor window. The burglars are able to get into the home in under one minute. Installing security window film will increase that time and hopefully allow help to get there before anyone gets in the home. If you are looking for even more added security, you can install a silicone attachment along with the window security film. When it comes to security window film you have different options when it comes to colors and thickness. The thicker the window film, the harder it is to get through. You can choose a clear security film, like this customer, where the window film is optically clear and you won’t even be able to tell it’s there. You can also choose a neutral security window film or a reflective security window film. The neutral security window film does have a tint to it, but you will still be able to see in and out of the window. The reflective security window film option looks like a one way mirror and will prevent outsiders from being able to see in. The reflective security window film will block the most amount of heat and glare, followed by the neutral security window film and then the clear security window film. All three options will block 99% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, which will prolong sun fading and protect family members from sun rays. This customer ultimately decided to go with the clear security window film option because they didn’t want to change the aesthetics of the home. They were so happy with the results of the installation because it gave them peace of mind that their home and family members were safer in case of a natural disaster or intruder.
