How Security Window Films Create Shatterproof Glass
Elite Security Glazing installs security window films made by 3M. They are a polyester-based, micro-layered product that is applied directly to your existing windows. When properly installed, the bad guys won’t even know it’s there – until they realize how hard it is to penetrate!
- Available in different grades for thickness and level of protection.
- Available in many colors and different levels of UV protection and light permeation.
- Stretch to prevent tearing and come with 3M’s comprehensive warranty.
- Increase the safety of your business without changing the look of your storefront.
The Thickness of Security Window Film
Security window film is slightly thicker than standard window tint films at two millimeters – the thickest being 23 millimeters. An eight-millimeter window film is the norm in the U.S.
Not only can a thick 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film help deter burglars, it can also help protect your family from broken glass in natural disasters, and it protects your home’s interiors by blocking harmful UV rays that cause fading.

Security window film is the lowest cost solution, and we consider it good, but it does not offer the same level of protection as DefenseLite (better) or Bulletshield (best).
DefenseLite is a clear security shield that installs over your existing glass to keep the bad guys outside – exactly where they belong. This advanced polycarbonate shield is designed to stop entry through windows and doors and will not break or fracture under attack.
For the most advanced window protection, we can retrofit a polycarbonate panel over your existing windows with Bulletshield, the bullet-resistant version of DefenseLite with UL 752 ballistic ratings.
Which solution is right for your organization? To answer that, you must ask yourself, “Am I protecting people or merchandise?”
Security window films and DefenseLite both do a great job of protecting merchandise by delaying or preventing entry, but if human lives are at stake, we highly recommend bullet-resistant glazing.
