According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, safety and security are foundational necessities for humans’ satisfaction and happiness. In fact, safety and security needs are second only to our physiological needs, such as food, water, and shelter. Threats to our wellbeing, both real and perceived, diminish our quality of life. This means that in order for us to truly “live our best lives,” our needs for safety and security must be fulfilled.
Having a strong security system in place can provide necessary peace of mind. One way to accomplish this enhanced level of security is through safety and security film.
How Safety & Security Film Works
3M Safety & Security Film consists of tear-resistant microlayers adhered to your windows with 3M’s proprietary adhesive technology. This added layer of invisible protection bolsters the most vulnerable parts of the building envelope to keep your home or business safe and secure. The film does not prevent the glass from shattering. Rather, it holds the broken glass fragments together, protecting occupants against injury and making your windows more difficult to penetrate.
When an intruder attempts to enter your home or commercial space through a window but is met with the unexpected challenge posed by the film, they will likely give up and turn their attention to an easier target. If they do persist, the additional resistance offered by the film can give you and your loved ones enough time to call for help, hide, or escape to safety.
In addition to smash-and-grab burglaries and active shooters, Safety & Security Film also protects against natural disasters, severe storms, and bomb blasts. When a windowpane shatters, whether from the impact of a crowbar, baseball, explosion, or falling tree limb, the film prevents the broken pieces of glass from scattering and potentially harming the people and possessions within.
Safety & Security Film Applications
Applications for Safety & Security Film include homes, commercial and government buildings, and schools.
For ultimate protection, Safety & Security Film should be part of a larger security plan. It offers maximum benefit when used in conjunction with an Impact Protection Attachment System. The attachment system bonds the filmed glass pane to the window frame. This prevents the pane from blowing inward in the event of intense force or changes in pressure.
With Safety & Security Film, you can protect what matters most. Whether you seek protection for your family, employees, inventory, or personal possessions, security film can play an integral role in keeping them safe.
