Expand your view on safety with 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films

3M Window Films can do more than shield you from high energy bills. 3M safety and security window film helps protect you from shattered glass due to unwelcome events like hurricanes, severe storms, terrorism, and vandalism. It can even improve safety in schools.

All Energy Solutions, safety and security films are combined with the 3M Impact Protection Attachment System for the highest level of protection. This system attaches the filmed window to the window frame, creating a strong shield that significantly outperforms window film-only systems.

Security Film Uses

Severe Weather Protection

Security film minimizes flying glass from turbulent and dangerous weather conditions. Hurricanes, severe storms, and other natural disasters can quickly damage and shatter your windows. 3M™ safety and security window film adds a protective layer to minimize shatter and strengthen your windows.

Crime Deterrent

Security film for windows impedes the quick access that smash-and-grab thieves are looking for. The thicker, stronger film makes it difficult to break through a window and gives law enforcement time to get to thieves before they can enter.

Graffiti Management

Save money when you replace only the window security film that was vandalized instead of the expensive glass beneath the film. Learn more about surface protection window film.

How do 3M™ safety and security window films work?

3M™ safety and security window films are designed to make glass shatter-resistant by holding the glass pieces together when broken.

Compared to 3M™ Sun Control window films, safety and security films are made with thicker polyester and a more aggressive adhesive. 3M™ Ultra Safety & Security window films are unique in the industry; they are built using a special micro-layered polyester technology which increases the films’ tear resistance significantly. The impact and tear resistance of Ultra films outperform all other films of similar thickness.

Are 3M™ Safety & Security window films hurricane-proof? Bullet-proof? Burglar-proof?

No, 3M™ Safety & Security window films are not hurricane-proof, earthquake-proof, bullet-proof, bomb-proof, nor burglar-proof. Rather, they are designed to make the window glass more shatter-resistant.

In the event of a windstorm, these films may offer significant safety and security value. They can reduce the risk of injury from flying shards of broken glass, and possibly help prevent debris and water penetration through the window depending on the severity of the storm (and the type of glass, framing system, size and velocity of objects, and more).

In an earthquake, these films can reduce the risk of serious injury from flying shards of broken glass, and possibly prevent glass from falling out of a home or building. Again, much may depend upon the severity of the quake (and the type of glass, framing system, and more, too).

These films are not designed to stop bullets.

Security films were originally developed to address international concerns and needs for improved safety and security against terrorist acts of bombings. These films can significantly reduce the risk of serious injury from flying shards of glass due to blasts. However, much depends upon the severity of the blast and the proximity of the window glass to the blast (and glass type, framing system, and more, too).

3M™ Safety & Security window films are a low profile, high performance measure of security in the battle against “smash and grab” crime, like burglary. The tough, shatter-resistant qualities of the film can hold the window glass together even if a brick (or similar object) were thrown at the glass. The thief must now make a choice; continue to attack this window, try another window, or move on. Time is short, and often they move on. However, if they are determined to gain entry, they will get in. It is generally recommended that the property have proper alarm systems in addition to security film for windows.
