When leaving town this summer, it’s imperative to protect your home during the time you’ll be away. While some opt for high-end security systems and others simply leave a light on, there are further measures that you can take to protect your home from intruders, weather, or natural disasters while you’re away on vacation. Specifically, the use of safety window films is a relatively recent technology that can protect your windows (and thus your home) from breaking + entering, high winds, fallen trees, and much more. Here’s how.
This makes breaking through the film pretty difficult. Additionally, the adhesive works as a second line of defense. If the window breaks, the adhesive of the film works to keep the shards together and maintain a strong barrier between the house and the outside.
Safety window films do not yell “look at us – we’re safety window films!” In fact, these films are transparent and look just like un-tinted windows (or you can tint them if you want.) This is great for two reasons. You do not have to compromise your beautiful view. And burglars won’t see this film and try to enter another way.
