Window Protection

Use 3M window films to achieve objectives and solve problems connected with intentional events and damage.

Forced entry and theft

Window Protection

3M window protection film can help deter street crime, simply because the window film helps hold the glass in place even after the window has been hit with heavy objects. Criminals don't have the quick access they are looking for to smash and grab. The film's resistance to tearing also makes breaking and entering very difficult. Often the window film slows them down to such a degree that they choose to move on.

Civil unrest

Window Protection

In this day and age it seems no country, society, culture or building is immune to the threat of terrorism or rioting. For this reason owners and managers of buildings need to be more aware than ever of their responsibilities to building occupants and property particularly during large public, political or sporting meetings and events. There can be little argument that providing a secure environment is at the top of the list. While heightened security cannot always prevent a building from becoming a target, precautionary measures such as 3M window protection film can work to minimize the resulting loss and damage. In the event of civil unrest the installation of 3M window protection film can demonstrate that management exercised due diligence in providing defensive measures to enhance occupant and property protection.


Window Protection

3M window protection films can go on the outside of windows or mirrors to protect the glass from vandalism. When a vandal spays, paints, writes, gouges, scratches or even acid-etches something onto the window it is the film that is damaged and it can simply be replaced as a sacrificial layer providing a brand new looking window or mirror at the fraction of the time and cost of replacing the glass. This application is particularly useful on trains or in bus shelters where vandalism is often most prevalent.

Bomb blast

Window Protection

As unpleasant as it might be to consider, the threat of bomb blasts in this world is very real. A bomb blast turns unprotected windows into dangerous shards often causing more harm to humans than the blast itself. Also shattered glazing allows blast pressure to enter a building posing further risk. 3M window protection film has been subjected to a variety of blast testing to applicable standard globally and can mitigate a blast helping to protect lives.
