Extensive Security Window Film Options

Here at Fort Collins Window Tinting, we offer many types of security window systems. Our experts will work with you to thoroughly assess your security needs and implement the right solution for keeping your property and occupants safe.

Glass Strengthening & Impact Protection

Our standard safety film is an excellent alternative to tempered glass, making it ideal for glass strengthening. And our bomb blast protection film offers Fort Collins property owners a way to mitigate broken glass hazards by keeping glass fragments within the window frame after a high impact event. This specialty film provides comprehensive protection even when you're present.

Solar Safety & Privacy Films

For those seeking energy efficient, UV blocking, and privacy benefits, there are security options that contain all three. No need to sacrifice one for the other-- finding the right security film option for you is just a phone call away!

Intrusion Prevention

If there is an intruder trying to break into your home and they try to break the glass, the glass itself can still break, but the polyester web that has been installed on the glass remains in place. This adds another hurdle to the intruder's intentions. Security film is an easy way to prevent home break-is, not to mention the clean up is more cost-efficient and can be done much quicker.

Security Film for Residential Properties

Many of our customers have been concerned with, primarily, the ground floor doors and windows. There is definitely a sense of peace that comes after the installation of security window film.

Knowing your home is a bit more protected when you leave, as well as when you are at home is a comforting feeling. Security window film from Fort Collins Window Tinting can also be used by home owners that:

  • Live in a big city

Fragment Retention Film: Protection from Blasts

Fort Collins Window Tinting offers bomb blast window film for Fort Collins schools, government facilities, and buildings needing advanced protection. Although this is an occurrence we all hope to never witness, it is something that certain government and commercial buildings need to keep in mind. In 2021 alone, the U.S. Bomb Threat Center reported 1,876 bomb threats and 381 bomb incidents, a 56% increase from bomb incidents in 2015.

"Fragment Retention Film" (FRF) is the type of window film we use in our bomb blast window film installations. It can also be referred to as shatter resistant film, anti shatter film, blast resistant film and bomb blast window film.

Essentially, shattered glass floating through the air at a rapid speed turns into shrapnel. Flying shrapnel can be extremely dangerous and sometimes deadly. Preventing these types of devastations are important and can be easily avoided by being prepared with anti-shatter security film.

Tested to Meet Glass Safety Standards

There have been tests conducted that show the bomb blast films meet or exceed federal standards when they are tested to the DOD/GSA/USACE security criteria. This is extremely important when considering the amount of damage that can be reduced if these films are in place.

Not only can you feel safer with a preventative method like this, but you can also enjoy your office as if there is no barrier between you and the sun. Many individuals think that something this tough and strong will reduce the amount of sunlight that streams into the building/office. However, you can still enjoy the natural sunlight, but just have an added sense of protection.

To summarize, shatter-resistant film is a simple, inexpensive and preventative solution to what is and can be a significant issue. It can save lives, keep people out of harm's way, and add a bit of protection to a horrific event.

Security & Bomb Blast Window Film FAQs

Security and bomb blast window films are specialized films applied to glass windows and doors to enhance their strength and resistance to impacts, explosions, and break-ins. These films are designed to hold glass shards together upon impact, reducing the risk of injury and property damage. They come in various thicknesses and layers, offering different levels of protection for various applications, from deterring burglars to mitigating the effects of explosions.

Security window films work by adding a strong, adhesive layer to the existing glass, bonding with it to create a more resilient barrier. Upon impact, instead of shattering into dangerous shards, the glass breaks but remains adhered to the film, thereby preventing or reducing injury and property damage. This also makes forced entry more difficult, as the glass does not give way easily.

Yes, there are several types of security films, each offering varying degrees of protection. Standard security films offer basic protection against break-ins and low-level impacts. Mid-level security films are thicker and provide greater resistance against higher force impacts, suitable for areas at a moderate risk of vandalism or accidents. Bomb blast and ballistic resistant window films are the most robust, designed to withstand the pressure and impact from explosions, making them ideal for high-risk areas or buildings that require the highest level of security.

These films can be applied to most types of glass, including single-pane, double-pane, and tempered glass. However, the effectiveness and the method of application can vary depending on the type of glass and the existing window structure. For example, some security films may not be suitable for textured glass. It's crucial to consult with a professional installer to assess your specific needs and ensure that the film is compatible with your windows.

Most security and bomb blast films are transparent and designed to be as unnoticeable as possible, maintaining the natural appearance of your windows. Some films also offer additional benefits like UV protection, which can slightly tint the glass. If aesthetics are a concern, there are options available to meet your needs without compromising the appearance of your property.

In Fort Collins, where safety and security are paramount for educational institutions, commercial spaces, and retail environments, security and bomb blast window films offer several benefits. They provide an added layer of protection against break-ins, vandalism, and potential bomb threats, helping to safeguard students, employees, and customers. Additionally, these films can contribute to a more secure and comfortable environment by offering UV protection and reducing the risk of injury from flying glass in the event of natural disasters or accidents.

The installation process involves cleaning the existing windows thoroughly before applying the film directly to the interior surface of the glass. The film is then trimmed to fit precisely and bonded securely to the window using a special adhesive. Professional installation is recommended to ensure that the film is applied correctly without bubbles or wrinkles, maximizing its protective benefits. The process is usually quick and non-disruptive, allowing for normal operations to continue with minimal interruption.

Choosing the right type of security film depends on your specific security needs, the type of property you own, and your budget. For residential properties, standard security films may provide adequate protection against break-ins. Schools, offices, and retail spaces might benefit from mid-level security films for enhanced protection against impacts. High-risk facilities or those in areas susceptible to severe weather or potential terrorist threats might require bomb blast window films for the highest level of security. Consulting with a professional installer who understands the unique needs of Fort Collins property owners can help you make the best choice for your situation.
