3M safety and security window films from Sunscreen Window Tinting help keep building inhabitants safe and secure from flying glass shards.

Hurricanes, tornadoes, severe winds, bomb blasts and even earthquakes can cause glass to shatter and send shards flying. During these disasters, 3M safety and security window films help protect occupants from flying glass, and will also keep out wind and rain.

Available from Sunscreen Window Tinting, 3M safety and security window films also provide security against burglars by holding the glass in place, preventing quick access to criminals. Often the filmed window slows them down to the extent that they may choose to move on to an easier target.

3M’s counter-intelligence window films help prevent information piracy by blocking the interception of wireless computer signals and wireless phone calls, helping to keep information secure within the confines of the building.

3M thin films for a wider margin of safety

3M’s patented films use layer after layer of micro-thin polyester to outperform all other films of similar thickness. The remarkable flexibility of 3M thin films ensures that they merely stretch instead of tearing when the glass breaks, keeping the window in the frame. 3M films have passed the 400 foot-pound impact level of ANSIZ97.1 Standard.

Tested and retested

3M films have been subjected to windstorms, bomb blasts, all kinds of flying objects and a rigorous series of durability tests, with the company having gone to extreme measures to make sure the films meet or exceed industry standards for impact and tear resistance. Tests carried out at the University of NSW by the Building Research Centre met Impact Test requirements of Australian Standard 2208 as a Grade A Safety Glazing Material, when impacted on either side of the glass.

3M SCOTCHSHIELD films come with a comprehensive 12-year warranty on both film and labour for commercial installations and lifetime warranty on domestic installations.

3M window films offer several benefits to commercial and residential buildings. Personal safety is assured against flying glass caused by severe weather and explosions while the films ensure security against smash-and-grab thieves, and also prevent intruders from gaining access to computer and cell phone information.

From a functional aspect, 3M window films help conserve energy in the building, and protect interiors from fading and glare while also delivering an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The film also protects employees and residents from dangerous ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer.

3M’s Fasara window films provide the beauty and privacy of cut glass at a fraction of the cost. 3M’s anti-graffiti films also help maintain aesthetics by preventing vandals from permanently damaging the building’s windows.
