It’s late at night when you hear it—the sound of broken glass. You’re worried, naturally, and your first instinct is to see what’s going on. Unfortunately, you’re also rooted to the spot, frozen with fear for your family, and shock that this is happening, and wondering what on Earth you’re going to do.
The truth of the matter is you could have done something long before this even occurred. Today, burglaries and break-ins are far more common among homes which lack protective film, than those which are equipped with the latest in glass protection. It may seem like the difference is slight, but having protective film for your glass windows can make a big difference. Here then, is a quick overview as to how and why that is, and what you can do today to protect your home tomorrow.
Safety and Security in Glass Film
There are many reasons why protective films for your windows and screens can do a world of good for your home. For starters, of course, they make these glass surfaces safer by making them harder to shatter, thereby helping to prevent breaking and entering by would-be burglars. This is accomplished in a few ways, not the least of which being the actual film itself, which when applied to your glass makes it more difficult to physically shatter via blunt force. In addition, it also helps to adhere the glass pane in place, making it harder to jostle the glass free and shatter it that way.
Because glass windows often represent one of the weakest points in any home security setup, it’s always a good idea to get some extra protection for that area. That said, grills and bars can be expensive, to say nothing of their looking somewhat unneighbourly and severe, against otherwise-sunny and upbeat exterior décor. That’s another plus of glass protection film—it protects your windows without compromising the aesthetic integrity of your home, allowing you to be a safe home owner without sacrificing style in order to do so.
These film glass coverings offer even more forms of protection as well. For example, the surface is very sturdy, making it resistant to scratching. In addition, they are also graffiti-proof, adding one more layer of protection to your property.
Other Glass Options
Of course, there are other reasons to look into film coverings for your windows besides simply wanting to protect your home. For example, there are also many film coverings out there which act as a tinting agent, giving your home a lovely stylish tint which can likewise provide great shade. In addition, there are also solar-smart film coverings as well. It should be noted, that the extra shade these options provide can be a great benefit for those who live in the most sun-drenched parts of Australia, helping cool down your home without resorting to the use of your AC, thereby helping you cut down on your electricity bill.
