Security is always on the minds of business owners and homeowners alike. One of the easiest ways to substantially boost the security of any building is by installing security window film.
The obvious benefit of this kind of window film is that it prevents window breakage—from burglars or otherwise. While not completely shatterproof (and definitely not bulletproof), security window film still stands as a great option for individuals looking to give their security system some extra oomph. But it also has a few benefits that tend to slip under the radar. Here are a few surprising benefits of security window film you may not have considered.
Enhance Privacy and Save Energy
Many people are under the impression that security window film is completely different from window tinting. This is a worthy distinction, but you should note that tinted security window film exists as well. These window films provide extraordinary security benefits in addition to cutting down on energy costs and enhancing privacy.
The added privacy afforded by tinted security films is an added security benefit in and of itself. If would-be intruders can’t see through your windows, they’re less likely to see desirable objects and attempt to break in.
Don’t be held off from investing in security window film because of the cost. While it’s ultimately up to you to decide what is affordable and what isn’t, you should keep in mind that the dividends may just be worth it if you invest today. A burglary will likely cost you far more in the end than the cost of window film installation. And if you choose to purchase tinted security films, you will reap the rewards of energy savings every day.
Makes Clean-Up Easier
Unsurprisingly, the majority of people who invest in security window film do so to increase security. But it’s not just burglars and other unwanted intruders who cause window breakage. Do you live near or a golf course or families with young children? Don’t be too surprised if one day an errant ball or other projectile shatters your window.
But if you have security window film, clean-up will not pose nearly so great of an issue as it would otherwise. This is because the shards of glass will continue to stick to the film. In addition to reducing the time you spend cleaning up and the risk of cutting yourself on glass, the window will remain largely intact. This means you don’t have to worry so much about the interim before you obtain a replacement.
