As a business owner, you well know–security is a major concern for any business. Next to your home, your commercial space is where you spend most of your time and likely one of your biggest investments –possibly even more. Therefore it makes sense you would want to protect it. We have found many businesses are thinking more and more about security for their businesses right now. Here at Denver Commercial Window Tinting, we point out to potential security clients that– the weakest points of nearly any building are its glass windows and doors. Which means you should make them the focal point of your security efforts. When trying to select between options like security cameras, security guards, bars on your windows, remember–one of the most powerful and cost-effective ways to protect your Denver business is with window film.
How Security Window Film Protects Your Denver Businesses Windows
Security window film does not work alone. In fact, it works in congress with other technologies to keep your business safe. Essentially, it strengthens the glass of your windows and makes them more resistant to breakage. Including security windows film, there are three main components to keeping glass from being penetrated. Each of them takes on a different role to help give you the most protection. As it happens–we can install all three for you!
- The Security Film: One great thing about security films is that they have many of the same benefits as other window films. But, these films are much more powerful than run of the mill films. First off they are thicker. More importantly, they are engineered to take numerous blows and are ever strong enough to resist a bomb or ballistic blow. Windows treated with these types of films will keep an intruder at bay for some time. In fact, these types of films are utilized in many secure buildings both privately owned and owned by the US government like the White House and Pentagon. However, security window film does not do it alone.
- The Advanced Adhesive: The next element of window film security systems is the adhesive. While security window film is very hard to tear, it only works to its full potential when used with an advanced adhesive. We use it with one of the leading adhesive brands called C-bond. C-bond is engineered to work on a nano-level. Essentially it fortifies glass to make it more flexible and resistant to collapsing on a nano-level. This means even after a powerful blow from a bullet or bomb, glass adhered with C-Bond adhesive will stay stuck to the film.
- The Security Frames: A specialty framing system is the last but equally important feature of security glass using window film for your Denver commercial space. It is put on the edges of your existing window frames to ensure a broken glass sheet does not rip out of your sill or walls. Even after a bomb blast or bullet strike these frames hold the film and glass firmly in place–protecting those inside and giving them more time to escape.
