Storefront with glass door to illustrate window security film

As a business owner in downtown Portland, you know the last few years have taken its toll on storefronts. But no matter where your business is located, having additional layers of safety and security for your building and your employees provides peace of mind in unsure times. In the case of security glass film, it can also save you money.

There are any number of ways to make your office more secure, but you also need to make sure your business is welcoming for returning and potential customers. Putting bars on the windows may prevent break ins, but they also aren’t very inviting. Tinted security glass film, however, offers both form and function for almost any type of glass.

How Security Glass Film Can Save You Money (And Looks Good Doing it)

Security glass film is an increasingly popular solution for businesses looking to improve their security without having to invest in expensive and complex solutions. By using glass film, businesses can protect their premises effectively against forced entry and vandalism.

The installation of security glass film can save a business money in the short term by offering an affordable alternative to traditional window installations, such as steel bars. In the long term, it also reduces the cost of repairs and maintenance associated with windows that have been damaged.

Additionally, security glass film can be used in conjunction with other security measures to create a comprehensive security plan for businesses. It is particularly effective when applied to storefronts, entryways, lobby areas, or any other point of entry that could be vulnerable to attack.

Security glass film also has the added benefit of making an area look and feel more secure, which can help deter potential intruders. Tint can vary depending on your needs, so you can go as dark as you need to shield clients and processes from outside prying eyes.

Now, about the form: security glass film installation is available in a wide variety of styles and colors, and can even be customized to meet the specific needs of businesses. With varying levels of tinting, film can give your storefront a level of class as well.

Tinting can also help save money (back to the function aspect of tinted security glass product film) by reducing energy costs as it blocks the sun’s heat from entering the building, keeping interiors cool during hot summers. Blocking these rays also prevents fading on interior furniture or flooring.

It is also resistant to shattering and provides an extra layer of protection against flying debris in the case of a severe storm. Safety security window film is several mil thick, and provides up to five times more strength than standard tempered or laminated glass. This makes it effective against impacts from hailstones, rocks, and other natural disasters. It can also offer a level of protection against intruders shattering the window with a single strike.

In addition to its strength, security film also helps reduce the risk of serious injury due to broken window glass or glass doors by holding shattered pieces together in one cohesive sheet. This prevents shards of shattered glass from spreading across a room and causing injury in the event of an attempted break-in or other incident involving impact with a window or door.
