This is also a requirement for buildings as you can see in the diagram below, the critical locations are from floor level to 1500mm high for doors with 300mm either side of the door and 800mm high for windows and partitions.

The attachment system: This is an absolute key player for security window film. Albeit an optional extra, the attachment system is going to fortify the glass and reinforce its structural integrity with a new level of security.

Benefits of safety and security window film:

  • Protection Against Forced Entry

Security window film acts as an invisible barrier, making it significantly harder for intruders to break through glass windows. It provides an added layer of protection by holding shattered glass together, preventing easy access.

  • Shatter Resistance

In the event of an impact or attempted break-in, the film helps hold shattered glass in place. This minimizes the risk of injury from flying glass shards, offering enhanced safety for occupants.

  • Deterrence of Smash-and-Grab Crimes

Criminals often opt for quick smash-and-grab tactics. Security window film makes it difficult for perpetrators to swiftly break windows, discouraging opportunistic crimes.

  • UV Protection

Many security films also offer UV protection, safeguarding interiors from harmful ultraviolet rays. This not only protects furnishings and valuables but also contributes to a healthier indoor environment.

  • Cost-Effective Security Enhancement

Compared to alternatives such as reinforced glass or window bars, security window film is a cost-effective solution for upgrading security measures without compromising aesthetics.


Security window film stands out as a versatile and practical solution for enhancing security in various settings. Its ability to provide protection against forced entry, shatter resistance, and UV protection makes it a valuable investment for both residential and commercial applications. As the importance of security continues to grow, incorporating security window film into comprehensive security strategies is a step towards creating safer environments for everyone.
