Do you know about “smash and grab”?
Most homes have valuables like jewelry, electronics, financial information and more, and very often they are near a window, easily within reach to an intruder. Many residences also have home offices, with valuable computers and files within reach of a window. Patio doors also provide a temptation to a burglar. With the toss of a brick, he can quickly get in and grab valuables. Illegal access is much more difficult and less likely to occur. On higher windows it can also protect from impact from storm-tossed debris such as tree limbs, or even prevent a child from falling out a broken window. Surprise the Intruder with a window that cracks but does not break when hit!
Window film is a great solution!
Statistics indicate that almost 70 percent of all burglaries involve forced entry through a window or door. ARMORCOAT® and SOLAR GARD®’s safety film helps deter break-ins, theft and even personal injury. Available in clear, tinted and frosted window film versions, these films are virtually invisible but what you will see is peace of mind.
Windows play an integral part when it comes to regulating heat and energy usage in your home. Security and Solar control window films can lower heating and cooling expenses by reflecting solar heat away from windows, eliminating hot and cold spots, and working to prevent heat in the winter and cold air in the summer, from escaping thereby lowering your utility bills. Heat reflecting Solar window film is like a solar shield, it is made from tough polyester laminates and bonded coatings specifically designed to block up to 99% of UV rays and provide up to 84% solar energy heat rejection, which reduces your cooling needs.
Solar GARD film will help reduce your energy use and save 5 – 15% on your energy costs. For UV window film in Toronto, PROTECTION PLUS may be your answer for energy savings!
Minimize UV RAYS
In addition to the damaging effects UV light can have on your home’s interior, it can do far worse damage to your skin. Two types of ultraviolet radiation, UVA and UVB, damage skin and increase your risk for skin cancer. UVB is the chief culprit behind sunburn, while UVA rays, which penetrate skin more deeply, are associated with wrinkling and other effects of photo-aging. By blocking up to 99% of ultraviolet light, Solar Gard window films provide sunscreen-like protection while you’re in your home.
Ultra Violet light that come through your home windows not only negatively affect your skin but also wooden floors, furniture and clothing. Security and Solar Window glass film was developed specifically to provide UV protection for you and your family. By minimizing these harmful UV rays, Security and Solar window films provide added protection. Protect your possessions by reducing sun ultra-violet (UV) damage to interior floors, carpets, furnishings and most importantly your family.
How Does Window Film Help Protect your Home?
It’s impossible to predict when someone will break into your home. With the aid of window film, you can make a burglar’s plans to break in much more difficult. Window film adds a layer of protection between the inside and outside of your house. When someone attempts to break in through the window, window film affixed with Hi-Impact caulking will hold the broken glass in place.
Not only is window film capable of deterring criminals from entering your home, but it is also capable of stopping tree limbs and other flying debris from crashing through your windows during storms. Window film also makes your home much safer for children. If your child should accidentally run into the window causing it to break, window film will save them from falling out.
Why Should Home Owners Consider Window Film?
There are numerous reasons to consider window film for your home. Not only is it capable of preventing burglaries, protecting reckless children and stopping flying objects, but it will also protect your property from UV rays. Carpeting and furniture will fade over the years from exposure to UV rays, but window film helps to filter them.
If you are looking to save some extra cash, window film can help with that as well. During the summer months, window film will prevent the cool air from seeping out, while during the winter window film will keep the heat inside of your home.
