Solar Art installed window security film to a home in Los Angeles, California! The homeowner was looking to increase security to all of the windows in the entire home. They already have a security system installed, but they were interested in adding additional security, not only in case of an intruder, but for natural disasters as well. With all of the earthquakes California has, the homeowner wanted to take added precautions to make sure the home and family are as safe as possible. The homeowner did some research on ways to increase overall safety in their home and they came across window film. They didn’t know how window film could help increase safety in their home, so they decided to request a free quote to learn more! Our operations manager briefly explained window security film to the customer over the phone and they became interested and wanted an estimator to meet with them at their house so they could learn more about it! When our sales representative met with the customer, he brought them different samples of window security film so they could choose which one they like best. Security window film is the same as standard window film in the sense of how it’s installed. It has an adhesive side and is applied directly onto the glass surface.
The difference between window security film and standard window film is that security film is much thicker. It comes in different thicknesses, and the thicker the security film is, the harder it is to get through. There is a 3 mil, 4 mil, 7 mil, 8 mil, 13 mil and 14 mil security film. Typically the 3 and 4 mil are installed to homes where intruders are less of a concern. The 7-8 mil are pretty standard for a business or storefront and the 13-14 mil are very popular for banks and schools where safety is a top priority. Regardless of which window security film you decide to go with, your windows will be strengthened by 2-3 times and you are going to prolong forced entry time. What this means is that if someone or something does hit your glass, the window security film is going to keep shattered glass intact, which greatly increases safety. Installing security window film also will prolong forced entry time allowing for more time to get there. After seeing the different security film samples and learning more about each of them, this homeowner decided to install the 4 mil security film. While they were concerned about an intruder, they didn’t think a thicker security film was necessary. They mainly wanted to add increased security in case of a natural disaster. The window security film the homeowner chose is optically clear, which means you won’t even be able to it’s there and it isn’t going to change the look of your home whatsoever. The homeowner decided to have window security film installed to all the glass throughout the entire home for maximum security. In addition to security window film, Solar Art also services solar film, decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film and building wraps throughout the entire West Coast.
