How Window Film Protects Oakland Businesses From Theft And More

Security window film:  The perfect way to protect your business against smash and grab crimes, this film is as lovely as it is tough on crime.  Smash and grab crimes are only successful when a burglar can get in and out quickly or grab something right from the broken window without entering. So, since security window film makes nearly impossible to penetrate a glass window quickly, the chances of someone actually getting in and grabbing something are low when window film has been applied. The cost for security window film varies widely depending on the level of security you are looking for and what type of system you purchase.  With high-end systems, your windows are reinforced with specialty frames which carry an additional cost. Typically you will see a low price point of about $8-16 per square foot for basic security films all the way to $125+per square foot for bullet or bomb-resistant films.

UV Protecting Window Film: Another type of loss prevention that window film mitigates is the harm from UV rays of the sun to your products and furnishings. Whether you are a retail store that doesn’t want your products to bleach or melt in the sun or a doctor’s office that wants to stop furniture and floors from fading, window film is a solution to prevent these things.  The cost of solar film varies depending on your location and which level of protection you choose but typically range between about $9 to $24 per square foot.
