Security Window Film by 3M
More and more, the world is becoming a dangerous place, as we all know. Just in the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in break-ins, smash-and-grabs, home intruders, active shooters, and race riots. It’s unfortunate that we need protection from these things. But we do. Fortunately, 3M™ provides a wide variety of Safety & Security Window Films that make our homes and businesses much safer. Public buildings, schools and colleges, commercial and industrial buildings, and even government buildings can benefit by installing safety and security window film.
Local Installation of Safety Film Makes the News on ABC Channel 2
United Christian Academy in Dickson is just one of the facilities that called us to install window film after the March 2023 school shooting here in Nashville. Channel WKRN News 2 interviewed Dickson Graphics owner, Adam Jude, about the installation of safety film at the school. Adam explained the security film properties that keep an intruder from getting in and showed a real test of a window protected with the film. Watch the News 2 video.
Security Film Provides Protection against: Breaking and Entering, Seismic Shock, Blasts, and Graffiti
3M films that provide safety and security come in a range of capabilities and prices. In other words, “one size does not fit all.” You have choices, and our experts can help you determine the appropriate and most cost-effective film that will meet your needs. In general, the safety/security films protect (in varying degrees) against break-ins and smash-and-grabs, flying glass caused by earthquakes or bomb blasts, and graffiti.
Dickson Graphics installs the following safety and security films:
- 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film Ultra Prestige Series
- 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film Ultra Series
- 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film Ultra Night Vision™ Series
- 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film Exterior Safety Series
- 3M™ Standard Solar Safety & Security Film
Safety and Security Films Provide Safety Glazing
One other, very basic protection that all 3M Safety and Security Films provide is “safety glazing.” Safety glazing gives a window the properties of tempered glass, which is stronger than regular glass and when broken breaks into small rounded chunks instead of sharp, jagged shards. However, unlike a tempered glass window, if a window that has safety film installed is broken, the film holds the broken pieces together, keeping the window in tact. (Intruders that meet this obstacle unexpectedly are more likely to flee instead of continuing to try to get in.)
Sometimes, commercial and industrial facilities need to upgrade some of their windows to tempered glass. This can happen the wrong type of glass was installed initially or if changes to the use of the facility require upgrading to tempered glass in areas where it wasn’t needed before. Installing 3M safety film is much less expensive than replacing the glass with tempered glass.
Security Window Film Is a Cost-Effective Solution
Installing security window film is a quick way to upgrade your security. And the cost of installing window film is a fraction of the cost of installing other safety solutions.
