Common Causes of Window Breakage

Security window film is an exceptional way to reinforce your windows structurally. But you may feel that your windows are not at risk of being broken. However, no matter where you live, there is always the chance of window breakage. Security window film does not render your windows indestructible, but it does add an extra layer of security that can help put your mind at ease. Below are a few reasons you should expect the unexpected, and consider adding security window film to your residential or commercial space.

Common Causes of Window Breakage

No matter where you live, there is always the chance that your windows could be broken. Here are a few reasons you should expect the unexpected, and consider adding security window film to your residential or commercial space.


Break-ins can occur in urban, suburban, or rural environments. Unfortunately, windows provide a typical entry point for burglars and other unwanted guests. Security window film can reduce the threat of break-ins. While it will not entirely prevent a determined individual from breaking and entering into your residence or commercial business, it can certainly deter them, as it renders the process of breaking glass far more troublesome. When it comes to security, anything that can reduce the threat of a break-in—be it a camera, fence, or security film—is welcome.


Even if you don’t live near a golf course, unwanted projectiles can imperil your windows. You may find that the ball games of neighborhood kids are encroaching uncomfortably close to your home. Teenagers have even been known to vandalize commercial windows for clout among their friends. There also looms the threat of a lawnmower or other piece of equipment launching a rock toward your windows. The possibility of projectiles proves it is better to invest in security window film now than to have to replace them later.


Hurricane season is upon us, and it is likely that at least one severe storm will ravage our area before the season is up. Although security window film is no substitute for actually hurricane-proofing your home, it does provide an additional threshold of protection in the event of extreme winds. Storms have the capacity to pick up all manner of objects and hurl them at your home or business. Consider installing security film for added peace of mind about window breakage.
