Applications of safety films:
– Why to use a security film?
Security film is mainly used to prevent and protect against burglary in the event of vandalism. The film is strong, tough and thick, which neutralizes the impact and increases the resistance of the window to breakage.
The film also directly protects if the window still breaks, for example due to vandalism or an explosion, or if it breaks on its own.
In the case of explosions, most serious injuries and deaths are caused by broken glass. Therefore, securing windows for building safety is one of the first important steps. The security film is glued to the glass, depending on the purpose, either inwards or outwards, thanks to which the glass fragments are also attached to the film and do not fly in the event of an explosion, etc.
This eliminates the danger that sharp shards of glass would otherwise pose. In addition to holding the fragments to themselves, the security film also keeps the window in the frame, for example after the vandals have acted, thus protecting the building from the weather and allowing further activities in the affected premises.
In addition to increasing the resistance of window to breakage and preventing damage caused by broken glass, the film also offers peace of mind.
Everyone needs security, whether they are a homeowner who has just had security films installed on their home windows, a small business owner who has previously had to worry about their business due to possible intrusions, or a ground floor employee and a shop assistant who in the past they have had to fear that someone will break in during their work time. But now they don’t have to worry any more. And the peace of mind – it’s invaluable.
– Different security films
From our wide range of products, everyone can find the right film for themselves, because we offer many safety films of different thickness and strength. Ask our experienced staff for advice on finding the perfect film to suit your needs. Films with different properties are suitable for different requirements, depending on whether classic security films with their specialization in intrusion protection are preferred, or something more complex and with a higher security class. It is possible to increase the safety classes of glasses with films – from P2A to P3A or even P4A.
In addition to security films with different thicknesses and durability properties, we also offer films with different looks. Standard films are clear and transparent, they do not change the optical properties of the glass and remain invisible when glued to the glass – it is like the ordinary glass. Such a security film has no mirror effect and does not change the appearance of the window in any way.
However, safety films are also available in tinted form on request. Tinted security film makes it difficult to see through the glass, making the room more private and increasing the level of safety. In addition, the tinted window reduces the amount of sunlight shining into the room and protects against UV radiation and fading.
We also have films with mirror surfaces. Such a film changes the appearance of the window by adding a mirror effect to the outer surface of the window. The reflective film hides the interior of the building from the eyes of passers-by, not allowing strangers to peek into the room, offering the highest level of privacy. In addition, this film reflects sunlight back, protecting the room from excessive heat, UV radiation, fading and the unpleasantly bright sun. As the film with a reflective surface reflects light back without absorbing it, it also effectively keeps the internal temperature of the building stable.
– Price of security film
When filming house windows, the starting price for classic safety films is 25 € / m2, plus VAT. The exact price depends on the chosen material, the location of the object, the condition of the windows, their accessibility and other individual factors of the respective project.
