Understanding the Different Types of Security Window Film

Now that you know all about the benefits of investing in security window film for your home, let’s talk about options. Security window films come in all different types of grades, thicknesses, and strengths. Here’s a quick comparison of some of the most common options:

  • Standard safety window film: This is the most basic option. While it may not be the strongest window film on the market, it’s suitable for using as a tempered glass alternative. Use it to strengthen glass areas located by sinks, showers, and swimming pools.
  • Anti-intrusion film: Reinforced with a ultra strong attachment system, these window films can also stop intruders from getting into your home.
  • Solar safety film: These films combine the benefits of energy efficient film with security window film, giving you the best of both worlds.
  • Bomb blast/ballistic resistant film: You likely won’t need this option for your home, but it’s great if you own a business. Bomb blast and ballistic resistant films are the strongest on the market, providing protection from extreme levels of impact.
