A lot of homeowners think that safety and security window film is just something for commercial spaces. While we install safety and security window film on many businesses here in the San Antonio area–we also do plenty of homes! That’s right, safety window film offers a world of benefits to homeowners and business owners alike. While they may be slightly different, the result, a safer place to work and live is the same!
Safety and Security Window Film for Protection Against Natural Disaster
Just like safety and security window films can protect from things like bullets and bombs, it also will stand up to flying debris from severe storms. Whether it is branches thrown about in a tornado or rocks and debris during a hurricane–window film keeps glass in place after a strike. During natural disasters, one of the biggest causes of harm to humans and homes is flying glass. Since safety and security window film causes glass to break into tiny, less harmful pieces, plus keeps it adhered safely to a film–your home is incredibly safer during the sometimes powerful storms we see here in San Antonio.
Home Safety and Security Window Films Protect Against Accidents
When it comes to dangers in your San Antonio home–glass is one of the biggest threats. Large plate-glass windows, glass in wet areas like showers or glass at the bottom of stairs all pose very large threats to the well being of your family–especially if you have kids. Slip and falls into these features could cause grievous injuries. A simple way to make these areas safer and a workaround for installing tempered glass is window film. It is effective and much less expensive than full glass replacement.
Home Safety and Security Window Films Protect From UV Rays
One of the biggest threats we face to our health in our San Antonio homes is actually the rays of the sun. Although the UV rays of the sun may not seem like a big threat–it is truly an insidious one. The glass on your windows does nothing to check the rays of the sun. While safety and security window film is designed to protect from the dangers inherent in breaking glass–it also protects from UV rays too. With an SPF 1000 window film can help reduce the harmful effects of the sun like skin and eye diseases or cancers.
