Hurricane season begins on June 1 every year, but there’s never a better time to prepare for the high winds and heavy rains that hurricanes bring with them. In fact, you certainly don’t want to wait until the end of May to begin preparing for hurricanes! Both your home and your business need to be protected from these deadly storms.
Hurricanes can damage your home or business in a number of different ways. One of the most dangerous things a hurricane can do is shatter your windows. High winds can blow objects into windows or even shatter windows on their own. Many homeowners and business owners invest in expensive storm shutters or have hurricane windows installed. While these solutions may help, they’re also very costly. In fact, some people simply can’t afford them.
There is another solution that is just as protective, but much more budget-friendly: security window film.
What Is Security Window Film?
Security window film is a special type of laminate film that is installed on top of your windows. This film is very thin, so it doesn’t block your view in any way. However, it’s also incredibly strong and stable. It’s made from high quality polyester and is installed using strong, transparent adhesive. Most people won’t even realize there’s a film installed over your windows, especially if you have a professional install it for you.
How Does it Protect You, Your Family, or Your Customers?
When a hurricane throws something heavy at a window, nothing is really going to protect the glass. Even hurricane windows and heavy wooden shutters can buckle after repeated strong gusts of wind. When that happens, the glass is going to explode outward, sending shards of glass everywhere. Security window film is designed to stop this explosion of glass. It remains in place when the window shatters, preventing the glass from flying outward. This reduces the number of injuries from cuts or from glass getting in someone’s eye or imbedding itself in skin.
Security window film can be installed on windows of any shape or size. It can protect circular or uniquely shaped windows found on some older homes. It can also be installed on shops or restaurants that have large floor-to-ceiling windows at the front.
