Security Window Film and Safety Film Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is there a film I can put on my windows to stop them from breaking?
A. No film will STOP glass from breaking, however, it can hold the glass in place once the window is broken.
Q. I don't like the look of security bars but I have an office that I need protected - will security film work?
A. Armorcoat security window film ranges in thickness from 7 mil to 14 mil. The thicker the film the more secure it is and the longer it would take for an intruder to gain entry.
Q. How does the security film work?
A. Armorcoat is a security film that is applied over your existing glass. If the window is broken, the film holds the glass in place.
Q. If I have security film on my windows can someone still get through the glass?
A. Yes - glass is breakable - so depending on the thickness of the film if an intruder continues to smash the glass they can eventually get in. However, during the process they will be taking more time and making noise -- two things intruders don't like to do.
Q. How long would it take for an intruder to get in once they break the glass?
A.That depends on the type of glazing and thickness of the glass and security film and how the intruder is trying to break in.
Q. Is there anything else I can do to help secure my office windows?
A. If you have a business then you most likely will have an alarm. Glass break detectors work very well with security film because the alarm goes off as soon as the window is broken, but they have to spend more time to smash through the glass and gain entry. The intruder would then have less or no time to gain entry -- resulting in little to no loss of property.
Q. Do you sell glass break detectors?
A. No - you would need to purchase that from your alarm company and make sure you let them know you have security film on your windows as some detectors need to have their sensitivity levels adjusted.
Q. What colour is the security film?
A. Generally, security film is clear but is also available in a limited selection of tints.
Q. I heard that security film will help in an earthquake - how?
A. Security film holds the broken glass together and does not allow the glass to break into shards and rain down on people, resulting in less injuries.
Q. My office windows have been scratched and etched with acid - do you have anything to remove that?
A. No - but we can protect your windows BEFORE they are damaged. We have a clear film that when installed on the exterior of the windows, acid etching will not stick to and if they are scratched or damaged the film can easily be removed or replaced. This is generally less expensive than replacing damaged glass.
