Solar Art installed security window film to a jewelers in Milpitas, California! The jewelry store is located in a shopping mall and has a large glass storefront as well as glass display cases throughout the store. Being as it is a jewelry store, there are a lot of really expensive items in the store. The business owner felt uncomfortable that the storefront and display cases were all glass. While the jeweler does have security cameras and locks throughout the whole store, they were worried that intruders could easily break through the glass. One of the other stores in the mall has anti graffiti film installed on their display cases to prevent scratches and etching and told them there is a security film that could help strengthen their glass. The business owner decided to do some more research on security window film when they came across Solar Art’s website. They decided to reach out for a free quote to learn more and see if it would be a good fit for their store!
Our sales estimator brought different 3M security films with him so the customer could feel how thick they each are and see if it’s a good fit for the store. The way security film is able to strengthen glass is because it is much thicker than standard window film. Security window film comes in different thicknesses, and the thicker the film is, the harder it is to get through. Since there are so many expensive items, the business owner decided to have 3M Ultra S800 installed, which is a thicker security window film. They wanted it to be as difficult as possible to get through. Seeing as the store is a jewelry store, a big part of the business is potential customers being able to see through the glass and see all of the beautiful jewelry the store is selling. With that being said, the business owner didn’t want to cover up the glass and prevent people from seeing through it. One of the great things about window security film is the fact that it’s optically clear and isn’t going to change the look of the glass at all. In fact, potential customers and even intruders aren’t going to notice it’s there at all. It is applied directly onto the glass storefront and the display cases and is going to strengthen the glass by 2-3 times. Security film is typically installed with a silicone attachment which will strengthen the glass even more. While it won’t completely prevent an intruder from breaking through the glass, security window film will prolong forced entry time and take the intruder longer to break in. This will allow more time for help to get there and for the intruder to be caught. In case of an intruder or a natural disaster, security film also holds shattered glass together, which significantly increases safety. The customer decided this was the perfect solution for their store and had the security window film installed to the entire storefront and all of the display cases. It was an easy and affordable way to add on to their current security system and give the business owner peace of mind knowing their store is as protected as possible 24/7. In addition to window security film, Solar Art also services solar film, decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film and exterior building wraps.
