As a business owner security is a major concern for you. Next to your home, your commercial space is a place where you spend the most time. It is probably one of your biggest investments too. Therefore it is sensible that you would want to protect it. Many businesses are thinking, just like you, about beefing up their security right now. Here at San Francisco Window Film, we understand the weakest points of nearly any building are its glass windows and doors. Meaning you should make them the focal point of your security efforts. There are options like security cameras, security guards, and bars on your windows. But, one of the most powerful and cost-effective ways to protect your San Francisco business is with window film.
How Security Window Film Protects Your San Francisco Businesses Windows
Security window film does not work by itself; it works in congress with other technologies to keep your business safe. Its function is to strengthen the glass of your windows and make them more resistant to breakage. However, there are three main components to keeping glass from being penetrated. They each play a different role to help give you the most protection and we can install all three for you!
- The Security Film: One thing to note about security films is that they have many of the same benefits as other window films. Beyond this, these films are much more powerful than other types of films. They are thicker and engineered to take numerous blows. They can even be strengthened enough to resist a bomb or ballistic blow. Windows treated with these types of films keep intruders at bay for some time. This is why these types of films are utilized in many secure buildings both privately owned and owned by the US government like the White House and Pentagon. However, security window film does work alone.
- The Advanced Adhesive: The next part of window film security systems is the adhesive. While security window film may be harder to tear than other films–it is advanced adhesives that give its real power. We use it with one of the leading adhesive brands–C-bond. C-bond is engineered to work on a molecular level. It fortifies glass through nano-technology to make it more flexible and resistant to collapse. This means even after a powerful blow from a bullet or bomb, glass adhered with C-Bond adhesive will stay stuck to the film.
- The Security Frames: A specialty framing system is the final but critical feature of security glass using window film for your San Francisco commercial space. It is affixed to the edges of your existing window frames to ensure the sheet of broken glass does not rip out of your sill or walls. Bomb blasts or bullet strikes of most magnitudes will not rip glass sheets from these frames. This means no flying glass and protection for those inside– giving them more time to escape.
