4 Benefits of Window Film
Posted in Blog, on April 21, 2017
The benefits of window film are nearly endless. From safety and security to aesthetic appeal, window film is a quick and efficient way to improve your home. There are dozens of potential benefits to having Window Armour install safety and security window film in your home; here are just a few of them.
Window Film Helps You Stay Safe and Secure
Obviously, this is the primary benefit of security window film, as opposed to aesthetic or UV-protective window film. Whether it’s intentional damage from a potential break-in or vandalism or accidental damage from storms and bad weather, windows are a weak point for your home. Safety window film reduces your risk of injury by keeping shards of glass together on impact, and improves your home’s security by making it significantly more difficult to gain access through a window.
Window Film Protects You From UV Rays
Not all window films offer UV protection, but some – including Solar Gard from Saint-Gobain – offer protection from harmful UV radiation. Window film them keeps your skin healthier and more protected than simple window glass by itself.
Saves Money on Renovations
Replacing your window with a more secure pane of glass can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Conversely, window film is just a few dollars per square foot when professionally installed. That means you’re not only protecting your windows; you’re protecting your wallet and your budget, as well.
Window Film Works On Any Window
Many home security modifications need specific requirements to be met – access to a router, or a clear line of sight, and so forth. Window film, however, works on windows of any size, shape or location. Because it’s custom-cut to the proper size, it can fit floor-to-ceiling windows or oddly shaped windows just as easily as any normal window. You don’t have to worry about whether or not your windows are compatible; any window can be protected with window film.
