The most vulnerable part of any building is its windows. Windows, while architecturally necessary, expose building occupants to certain dangers. Burglars typically gain access to homes and offices through windows and glass doors. A detonated terrorist bomb can cause glass in nearby buildings to implode at high velocities in tiny shards. Flying debris from hurricanes can smash through a window and cause harm to occupants. Thankfully, there is a solution that is affordable, beautiful, and practical! Safety & Security Window Films by 3M reduce these dangers significantly.

How Does 3M Security Film Work?


3M Security Window Film is specially designed to hold shattered glass in place, adding a layer of protection to glass windows and doors. As a result, security film can deter intruders from easily gaining entry into your space, buy extra time to react in an emergency, and minimize the likelihood of harm caused by flying shards of glass. These sturdy security films are available in mirror-like reflective or optically clear finishes and are applied to the inside of glass doors and windows. There are even security films that offer the added benefit of sun control to improve energy efficiency and comfort while protecting your property.

Maximizing Safety in Homes, Offices, and Schools with 3M Window Security Film


Crime Prevention through 3M Window Security Film Installation


A homeowner’s or business owner’s worst fear is unwanted entry. Needing only a few seconds, burglars most often gain entry through a window or glass door. However, because 3M window safety films hold glass in place in the window frame, more time and effort would be required for a robber to gain access into your home, office, or school with security window film in place. Given that delay, the would-be thief will most likely move to another target or be caught by authorities before robbing your home or office.

Leveraging 3M Security Window Films for Anti-Terrorism Protection


In today’s world and throughout history, terrorism has been a real threat. For example, during the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, 3M was credited with saving many lives because of Safety and Security Window Film. Safety films for windows, otherwise known as Fragment Retention Films, offer ideal protection during emergencies like terrorist attacks. Glass located near an explosion may implode at high velocities in tiny shards, acting as daggers, and can prove fatal to building occupants. In fact, this is the second highest cause of death in a terrorist attack. 3M Safety Films hold the glass in place, minimizing the risk of harm caused by flying shards. 

Safeguarding Against Extreme Weather with 3M Security Window Film


Unpredictable weather can be a frightening experience, especially when it takes a turn for the worse. From damaging rain and thunderstorms to devastating hurricanes and tornadoes, it's essential to prepare your home or workplace for anything that may come your way, including harm caused by severe weather events. One of the biggest risks during these events is broken glass injuring people and damaging property as it flies through the air. That's where 3M Security Film comes in. This innovative product is designed to hold shattered glass in place, minimizing the damage caused by flying shards. With 3M Security Film, you can rest easy knowing that you are taking the necessary steps to prepare your space for any potential disaster.

Enhancing School Security with 3M Window Security Film


In today's world, ensuring the safety of educational environments is paramount. By applying 3M security window film for schools, we can greatly enhance the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff. Its clear, almost invisible appearance maintains the aesthetic of school buildings while discreetly providing an extra layer of security in the event of inclement weather or an emergency situation. By integrating this technology, schools can create a safer learning environment, giving parents and educators peace of mind.

Protecting Our Schools


Recent tragic events have highlighted the need for better school security. 3M safety and security window film can help make schools safer for students, teachers, and staff. When security window film is installed on glass windows and doors, it is more difficult for armed intruders to gain access to the building, which gives first responders more time to arrive on scene.

Elevate Your Protection with the Following 3M Security Window Film Products


3M Solar Safety Film: For Sun Control & Security


Solar Safety Film meets the same safety and security standards as 3M Scotchshield Ultra 800.  In addition to fortifying glass surfaces, 3M Solar Safety Window Film also has exceptional sun control properties. Depending on which window film you choose, you can drastically decrease the solar heat entering through your windows and eliminate up to 79% of glare. In addition to the safety and sun control properties, 3M Solar Safety Window Film offers great privacy for those inside during daylight hours. Improve occupant comfort, reduce heat to increase energy savings, and earn your building LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits by using 3M Solar Safety Window Film. The effective and beneficial combination of solar control and security features makes Solar Safety Film a step above traditional safety and security film. 

Safety & Security IPA Attachment Systems


In the event of a bomb blast, the possibility of the entire glass pane being blown inward is greater after the installation of 3M window film. While this is still safer than glass imploding in tiny shards, the use of an impact protection adhesives (IPA) attachment system decreases this likelihood. An attachment system’s main purpose is to anchor the film and glass to the window’s frame. In doing so, an IPA attachment system also deters forced entry attempts as it makes it more difficult for someone to kick out the pane of glass. When paired with 3M Security Film, IPA Attachment Systems take security to a new level.
