The top features of security window film for commercial properties

by | Jul 10, 2023

Security window film is a solution to enhance the safety and protection of commercial properties. With its advanced features and capabilities, security window film offers a range of benefits that go beyond standard window glass. Security film offers protection against vandalism, UV rays, accidents, break-ins and extreme weather. Securing windows against potential threats can be a great addition to any commercial property and can help improve security, comfort, and peace of mind. Vancity Window Films offers both clear security window film and tinted security window film. 

Clear security window film

Our clear security film has an optically clear finish, seamlessly blending into the window, and blocking unwanted UV rays without changing the appearance of the glass. 

Tinted security window film

Coming in various levels of tint shades, we have a level of tinted security window film to meet your needs. Tinted safety film blocks UV rays, and provides the benefits of solar control film, while protecting your building from unwanted security issues. 

Securely anchored for your protection

At Vancity Window Films, we are committed to the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction. Our security window films are applied with a clear adhesive to your windows, ensuring an unobstructed view. In order to give you the highest standards of security, our anchoring process secures the window film to the frame with industrial-grade caulking. This vital step transforms your windows from a weak point to a barrier protecting your building envelope. 

Security window film offers many benefits for commercial properties including:

 Shatter resistance

Security window film is designed to enhance the strength and durability of glass, making it more resistant to shattering. It holds the glass together upon impact, preventing it from scattering and reducing the risk of injury from flying glass shards.

Break-in and forced entry protection

 Security window film can significantly delay forced entry attempts. Even if an intruder manages to break the glass, the film holds the shattered glass in place, making it much harder to create an opening large enough to enter. This extra time can provide valuable minutes for authorities to respond or for occupants to take necessary actions.

UV protection

Most security window films also offer a high degree of ultraviolet (UV) radiation protection. They can block a significant portion of the sun’s harmful UV rays, protecting furniture, carpets, and other interior elements from fading or damage caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Enhanced privacy

Certain types of security window film, such as frosted or tinted films, can provide an added layer of privacy for commercial properties. They make it more difficult for people outside to see inside, offering occupants a sense of security and confidentiality.

 Energy efficiency

Some security window films have energy-saving properties, helping to reduce heat transfer through the glass. By reducing the amount of solar heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter, these films contribute to maintaining a more comfortable indoor temperature and can lower heating and cooling costs.

Glare reduction

Security window films with glare-reducing properties can improve visibility and create a more comfortable working environment. By minimizing excessive sunlight and glare, they help reduce eye strain and improve productivity for occupants.
