Protect your Peace of Mind
With 3M™ Safety & Security Film, you can rest assured that your windows will hold up and hold together in the event of impact.
3M™ Safety & Security Window Films
In the event of a nearby explosion, a building's Achilles heel is typically its glazed surfaces. Shattered into razor sharp fragments and propelled at high speeds, glass can cause severe injury to a building's occupants. In addition, shattered glazing allows blast over-pressure to enter the building. This, too, poses a serious threat to the safety of those inside and outside.
Extensive testing has proven that the threat of injury due to flying glass can be greatly reduced by the use of 3M™ Scotchshield™ Ultra Safety & Security window films. These tough, transparent, blast-resistant films consist of multiple, microthin polyester layers that work to hold shattered glazing together. Consequently, there are fewer fragments and debris capable of inflicting harm. Clear Scotchshield™ films are the perfect solution to a retailer or homeowner seeking protection without sacrificing visibility.
Safety & security window film products include:
3M™ ULTRA SERIES
3M™ Ultra Series technology offers up to 42 micro-layers of strong, tear-resistant safety film. Ultra Series films outperform all other films of similar thickness due to their remarkable flexibility. While other films tear; Ultra films stretch and can often keep the window in the frame even if the glass breaks. These films demonstrate superior performance over standard polyester films in blast and impact events. Ultra Series films are available as clear safety film or with a tinted sun control option. Ultra Series films are non yellowing, with greater clarity than traditional alternatives. Ultra Series includes: ULTRA CLEAR, ULTRA PRESTIGE, & ULTRA NIGHTVISION
3M™ SAFETY SERIES
These 7 and 8 mil polyester films offer basic protection. Safety Series Films are paired with a special thicker adhesive to help hold broken glass together. These films are available in clear safety film or with a tinted sun control option. Available for both interior & exterior use.
Impact Protection Attachment Systems bond the filmed window to the frame with either an adhesive (wet glazed) or profile option. Using an attachment system offers the highest level of protection—strong enough to handle even bomb blasts. Our UltraFlex Window Film System adds an advanced structural silicone adhesive that aggressively bonds the glass and film to the window frame. An attachment system creates a robust window protection system that significantly outperforms glass film-only installations. The Impact Protection Profile meets or exceeds GSA 3b standards for blast mitigation.
