Safety window films are designed to keep broken glass together, offering increased protection from breaking-and-entering crimes as well as extreme circumstances such as bomb blasts, severe weather and car accidents.
LLumar Commercial Security and Safety Window Films are specifically engineered to deter crime. Our heavy-duty polyester compound security film is tested against a 100-pound impact from 18-48 inches, increasing resistance against impact and preventing lacerations from shattered glass. A 9.1-pound steel ball dropped from 59-118 inches is used to test the toughness of our films against forced entry.
By holding broken glass in place, these window films prevent the quick access that smash-and-grab criminals need to enter your business and abscond with your company’s valuables. A criminal will need approximately twice the time to break into a window covered with LLumar security film, even if armed with a blunt weapon or firearm. As a result, they may decide the robbery isn’t worth their time and decide to seek out an easier target.
Keeping Glass In Place to Avoid Injury
Vandalism and crime aren’t the only causes of shattered windows. Accidents and severe weather can also be the culprits behind a room full of broken glass. LLumar’s Safety and Security Window Films work to hold broken glass in place in the event of a break, keeping everyone safe from falling and flying shards of glass. And it’s all accomplished with a system nearly invisible to the naked eye – much more visually appealing than bars or grates!
Safety Film by the Numbers
What makes the security window films we carry so reliable? The LLumar film we install is verified by independent laboratories and meets criteria established by the American National Standards Institute, the General Services Administration and current European standards. Here are just a few of the figures behind what we have to offer:
Thickness: 0.002-0.013 inches
Tensile strength: 16,070-33,884 psi
Break strength: 74-297 pounds force
Elongation at break: 98%-176%
Designed to minimize the risk posed by broken windows, frame attachments are steadily growing in popularity as an easy way to improve safety. We offer a frame attachment system with advanced structural silicone adhesive that is applied over the film and the frame to create a strong bond between them. This attachment system aggressively bonds film and glass to the window frame, keeping shards to a minimum and making clean-up significantly easier.
No one ever really expects an explosion to occur. However, having a mechanism in place to mitigate harm from bomb blasts and similar trauma can help put your anxieties to rest. LLumar Safety and Security Films are designed to protect the occupants of a room from flying glass shards.
Violent Weather Protection
In the event of a tornado, earthquake, hurricane or even just a heavy storm with high winds, glass can quickly become your worst enemy. During such natural disasters, LLumar Safety and Security Window Films can keep flying glass from harming inhabitants and, in many circumstances, prevent wind and rain from getting inside. Installing commercial safety glass film on your building can prevent severe injury as well as serious property damage. LLumar films designed for windstorm resistance are built to withstand multiple tests, including eight hours of simulated positive and negative windstorm pressures and, for flying debris, lumber shot from an air cannon at 40 feet per second.
Safety, Security & The Sun
LLumar Safety and Security Window Films do much more than add an extra layer of defense to your building; they can also block out unwanted heat from the sun, reduce annoying glare and minimize fading. In fact, these films can block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, which are the single largest cause of interior fading. The result? Better visual appeal, reduced eye fatigue lower energy bills – and maximized comfort!
