Adding a window tint to your home or office can be an excellent choice for a variety of reasons. Not only do they help protect your health, but they ensure your interiors stay in good condition, improve productivity, increase energy efficiency, and most importantly, add security. While window tints may seem like a simple, thin addition, they can add a valuable level of protection to your home or office that can not be dismissed. When you’re looking for a great way to update your space in the new year, window tinting is an option with significant returns.
Block Criminals View
One of the first ways that window tinting can help improve your security is by preventing would be criminals from seeing into your home or office in the first place. While you might assume that most theft occurs at night, in reality, the hours of 10am to 3pm are the most common. This may be because would be thieves are able to see into locations to suss out what’s worth stealing. Having a window tint is your first line of defense as its harder to look into your space.
Reduce Threat Of Break-Ins
Even if a would-be thief is able to make out your interiors, window tints add yet another layer of security. When you choose a security film for your window tint, you’ll have the benefit of a sticky coating that prevents your window glass from shattering. Not only does it help prevent windows from breaking without multiple blows, when the window does break it won’t fall, meaning the thief will have to get through the film. Often, the potential break-in will be prevented entirely as the time needed to get in will dramatically increase and add to the chances that the offender is caught.
Decrease Injury From Broken Glass
Last but not least, the ability of window film to keep a shattered window in one piece is an impressive safety feat that helps you and your employees whether the break is of criminal or accidental origin. While illegal break-ins may be your primary concern, glass windows can be affected by a number of things. Debris during wind storms, clumsy construction, and the neighborhood baseball team can all cause a broken window. Having a window film in place will ensure that if a break does occur, no one can be harmed by fallen shattered glass. This is particularly important in homes with children and pets, who might find their way into the glass on accident.
