What security film is right for me?

The right security film for you will depend on your specific needs and the schools where you’ll be using the window film. For our customers who manage school buildings, we commonly recommended the 3M Security films with 8 mil or 14 mil thickness. These window films offer a range of benefits for schools:

  1. Break-in Prevention: Both 8 mil and 14 mil films are effective at preventing break-ins by making it more difficult for intruders to shatter the glass and gain entry.
  2. Glass Fragment Protection: In the event of glass breakage, these films hold the glass together, reducing the risk of injury from flying shards.
  3. Privacy and Solar Relief: We install security films that are completely clear to create an invisible barrier, as well as various darker options to provide privacy and reduce solar heat gain in your school.

Choosing between the different thicknesses and tints will depend on your priorities, such as the level of security needed and the desired balance between visibility and privacy. Clear films might be preferable if you want the barrier to be less noticeable, while tinted films can offer additional benefits like heat reduction and privacy.
