There are over 2.5 million burglaries in the United States every year. While most of these are home invasions, a significant proportion target commercial properties.
Commercial properties are targeted because they often have fewer people around at night, giving burglars more time to break in and get away. A great way to counter these burglaries is with a safety and security film.
Keep reading to learn more about how security film works.
What is Security Film?
Security film is a protective layer you can add to any windows or glass panels. How security film works is that it darkens the windows, making it more difficult for intruders to see inside.
This is especially important if your commercial site has already been targeted. Before installing it, make sure the windows are in a good condition. To do this, replace old or damaged windows, and then contact a security film provider.
Benefits of Security Film
There are a lot of benefits to installing a protective film around your commercial site. While a lot of these have to do with security, some of them relate to the health and comfort of the people inside the property.
Less Likely to be Targeted
Darkening the windows means it’s more difficult for intruders to see into the property. And if they cannot see what’s inside, they are less likely to take a chance at breaking in.
The film also means the windows are harder to break into. The film holds the window together, so even if the intruder breaks the glass, they still cannot get inside.
This makes it take longer to break in. Taking longer means they are more likely to be caught, preventing the breaking-in from happening.
Reduce UV Radiation
The protective film also reduces exposure to ultraviolet radiation. UV rays lead to many dangerous health risks.
By reducing this exposure, the people inside the building are less likely to develop any of these health risks.
Since the windows are reinforced, it means they can withstand strong environmental conditions.
The force of earthquakes, storms, and tornadoes, often breaks windows. This damage can trap people inside buildings in dangerous conditions, or make the building a target for crime once the disaster passes.
With protective film, the reinforced windows will not shatter. This means people are more protected inside the building. It also means the windows hold firm, so the building is still secure once the disaster is over.
Installing Safety and Security Film
Installing security film is a great way to improve the security of your commercial site. It does this in a few ways.
These films make it more difficult to burglars to see into your property. They also reinforce the window, making it more difficult for people to break in. There are even some health benefits too.
