Plastic Window Films and Tints for Automotive, Residential, and Commercial Applications.
Plastic Window Film is designed to make the window glass more shatter-resistant. Safety and plastic window films are used where there is a potential for injury from broken glass (such as glass doors or overhead glazing). Safety and security window films are polyester films that are applied to glass and glazing in order to hold them together if the glass is shattered (similar to laminated glass). These films are used widely all over the world; they can be found on trains, buses, cars, and buildings. The main difference between film and laminated glass is that the film can be applied to the glass or glazing after manufacture or installation. The films are adhesive coated to bond them to the glass. The better safety films are smooth-coated, because they have far superior optical clarity.
Where should I use plastic window film? Plastic window film can be used on any glass that is vulnerable to wind borne debris or smash and grab thieves. This includes your home, office, or storefront windows, display cases, and automobiles.
Personal safety – Plastic Window Film forms a super strong bond with the glass that holds the glass together even after a many forceful impacts. Even if the glass is broken, it remains adhered to the film and will stay in place. This will deter a thief expecting easy entry to your property.
Protection during earthquakes -In an earthquake, these films can reduce the risk of serious injury from flying shards of broken glass, and possible prevent glass from falling out of a home or building. Again, much may depend upon the severity of the quake (and the type of glass, framing system, and more, too).
Additional protection from windstorms and wind borne debris – In the event of a windstorm, these films may have significant safety and security value. They can reduce the risk of injury from flying shards of broken glass, and possibly help prevent debris and water penetration through the window depending on the severity of the storm (and the type of glass, framing system, size and velocity of objects, and more).
