Fortify Windows and Glass Doors with 3M Safety Films

What is Safety Film?

Safety films are clear, multi-layer polyester films installed on existing glass that help hold shattered glass together. When paired with an attachment system these films provide additional security by hindering intruders from entry through broken glass.

Attachment System

Attachment systems anchor the film to the glass frame, supplying additional protection if the glass is broken. Because tempered glass is designed to break into small, less dangerous pieces, it falls from the frame more readily. This silicone-based structural sealant is crucial to ensuring the film stays in place.

Mitigate Hazards from Broken Glass

Broken glass due to intentional force, an accident or natural disaster can cause serious injury and damage to property. Safety films are designed and tested to hold broken glass shards in place.

Delay Entry

Glass doors and windows are an easy access point for unwanted visitors. By delaying entry, safety films provide for law enforcement response, providing lives and property.

Around the Clock Protection

Unlike other essential systems of security in schools, safety film works day or night, even if the power is out. And at a fraction of the cost of replacing the glass or other retrofit solutions.
