Understanding Security Window Film Thicknesses
3 to 4 Millimeters
This thickness is suitable for natural disasters. It is enough to keep most glass intact through an earthquake or series of small impacts. However, as far as flat glass film goes, the thickness will not help much in the event of a forced entry.
Choosing this film ensures that you are not injured by flying glass or glass shards during a natural disaster. Unfortunately, many people are injured by broken glass after a natural disaster and experience difficulty seeking care.
7 to 8 Millimeters
This thickness of residential security window film not only covers natural disasters but also prolongs forced entries. The fact that it covers both makes this a popular thickness to install in homes and other residences.
It’s essential to recognize that this thickness of residential security window film only prolongs forced entries and cannot stop them entirely. It provides time to call for help and reach a safe location.
13 to 14 Millimeters
This choice is the thickest option you may find through conventional installers. Applying this film can significantly prolong a forced entry event so that there is time for help to arrive. It also offers all of the benefits in a natural disaster situation.
Due to the thickness, this is the most expensive option. However, your family’s safety may depend on these residential security window films. Therefore, choosing a professional installer and the best film option possible is in your best interests.
