Residential Safety & Security Window Films: Glass is a delicate material and can become dangerous if broken. Safety film from SFF will help protect against breakage, keeping you safe against the potential dangers of shattered glass.
Glazing in the home is always at risk of accidental damage, and if the glass isn’t toughened or laminated, the chances of it breaking and becoming an immediate danger are much greater. An application of safety window film will quickly and easily upgrade glass to meet safety film standards, making it harder to break and ensuring that if the glass does break, it does so in a safe way.
Safety films are available in a range of thicknesses and finishes, with the most popular being a completely clear product, meaning you can apply safety film to your glass without altering the appearance.
Once applied, the safety film works by placing an additional barrier on the glass. This helps to protect against accidental breakage. In the event that the glass does break, the safety window film makes sure it does so in a safe way – holding the broken pieces in place, not allowing them to fall from the frame in jagged pieces; the dangers of which are self-explanatory.
Safety films can be applied in conjunction with other window films to deliver additional benefits such as privacy, solar protection and anti-fading.
