Home Window Film For Home Invasion Protection In Oakland

Safety & Security Film is a strong but invisible layer of protection against home invasion. Like laminated glass, it is engineered to make the window glass shatter-resistant. This is effective because, when an intruder tries to break a window in your home, the broken glass stays firmly adhered to the film and the window cannot be easily be penetrated.  This means the would-be thief cannot enter your home without a lot of time and effort–which they simply don’t have before police arrive.

Home Window Film As A Safety Glass Alternative

Building codes in Oakland often times require tempered or laminated glass for “dangerous” glass features. These are places where a slip and fall could result in glass shattering and hurting or even killing someone: glass doors, bathroom glass, windows, balconies, staircase glass. Bringing these areas up to code is often required when remodeling your home but remember–installing expensive tempered glass is not your only option.   Window film satisfies the safety glass requirement and is an affordable workaround for installing tempered, safety or laminated glass.

Home Window Film For Sun Protection

Research suggests that  UV rays, like the ones that shine through untreated home windows, may have numerous many negative impacts on health such as:

  • Premature skin aging and wrinkles
  • Collagen damage
  • Skin cancer
  • Eye cancer and disease

This means the UV rays shining through your Oakland’ homes windows, could, in fact, be increasing risks to your family’s health. Since glass alone will not stop harmful UV, UVA or UVB rays, having window film installed, is a good way to keep your family protected, as, it blocks 99.9% of harmful rays and offers the same protection as an SPF 2000 sunscreen.
