Living in the Pacific Northwest we do need to keep severe weather in mind and we have to worry about events like earthquakes and strong windstorms, including ones with hurricane-force winds known as mid-latitude cyclones, and other harsh weather events including thunderstorm or tornadic activity. One of the biggest issues with many of these types of natural disasters is high winds turning flying debris into dangerous projectiles. Security film can save lives by keeping the glass from windows and doors from becoming sharp projectiles when subjected to major forces.
