How to Choose Between Security Window Film, DefenseLite, and BulletShield

How to Choose Between Security Window Film, DefenseLite, and BulletShield

Protecting your business is protecting your livelihood. You invest your life savings in hopes it will reap you and your family the benefits, but there’s no telling when a burglar, thief, or intruder can put all that in danger.

It’s always a good idea to invest in protection, but how much protection does your business or home really need? At Elite Security Glazing, we help business owners secure vulnerable entry points with security window film and highly durable barriers that offer varying levels of resistance and protection.

Find out how to choose which level of protection is right for the windows in your business!

Security Film

Security window film is standard when stopping forced entry. With the thickness of the film ranging from 2 millimeters to 23 millimeters, there is a wide range of options to choose from.

Made out of a polyester base, this film is applied directly over your windows, providing a layer of shatterproof protection that’s invisible to the naked eye. While a window with security film might still break on impact, the film holds the glass together, which can keep a would-be burglar out of your business for 15 to 45 seconds – just enough time for you to react and call the authorities.

Security window film also comes in different colors and varying levels of UV light protection for added benefits!

While security film offers a good buffer that gives you ample time to respond, it is far from a heavy-weight protector like DefenseLite.


DefenseLite is quite the step up from security window film. It’s a polycarbonate shield that can be retrofitted to fit your windows, creating a highly durable barrier between a threat and the glass.

DefenseLite is installed over your existing window and tightly secured by heavy-duty adhesives and anchors. The adhesives and anchors make it seem like it would be hard to install, but this product is easily customizable to fit any door or window.

If you're looking for superior protection from severe weather, property damage, or burglars while dampening annoying street noise and offering protection from UV rays, DefenseLite is a better option than security window film.

And if you want even more protection? Let us introduce you to BulletShield!


The king of window and door protection, BulletShield is our best window protection, as it will keep your windows sheltered from the most dangerous projectiles. Rounds from an AR-15 and even a .44 Magnum are no match for BulletShield’s unmatched strength!

BulletShield is an engineered solution consisting of proprietary high-optic UV coated shields, multi-layer thin films, and tough structural adhesives and anchors. It’s mounted like DefenseLite but offers upgraded security – independently tested to meet UL752 ratings for ballistic protection.

If you want the best of the best protection from burglars and even shooters, a bullet-resistant storefront is hard to beat.
