How to Choose Security Film for Your Salt Lake City Home

There are many things to consider when choosing a security window film for your Salt Lake City home. First, the most important thing to consider is the quality of the film, which will determine how long the film will last and also how well it will perform. We recommend choosing a film from a reputable brand that has a long standing history of producing quality results like 3M, Llumar, or Vista.

The next thing you should consider are the safety factors for your particular neighborhood and home. For example, if you have windows located near a pool, you may want to choose a film that can work as tempered glass alternative. Or, if you’re greatest concern is break in protection, you’ll want to choose an impact resistant film. Finally, the last things to consider are price and aesthetics. Your project manager will work with you to determine the best film based on your particular concerns and needs.

Residential Security Film Applications

Residential security film is a highly versatile product. It’s available in a variety of styles and appearances and can also be used for a wide range of purposes. Privacy, break-in protection, and energy savings are some of the many common reasons homeowners choose a particular window tint.

Storms & Hail: Mother Nature can be brutal. Hail, tree branches, and debris swept up from high speed winds can shatter your windows. Window tint creates a impenetrable barrier that can help protect your home from storms and detrimental weather.

Glass Strengthening: Glass is flawed by nature, which is why it breaks easily upon impact. Security window film primer like C-Bond strengthens glass at the molecular level for a stronger, more durable design, increasing its shatter resistant.

Solar Benefits: UV radiation is ruthless when it comes into contact with furniture and flooring and cause colors to fade. Window tint can help protect your home from the sun’s devastating rays, protecting the beautiful upholstery, window coverings, and furnishings in your home.

Privacy Benefits: As homes are being built closer together in Salt Lake City with less space between one neighboring home and the next, window tint is becoming increasingly common. Window tint creates privacy for your home windows, shielding views of your belongings and family from the outside world.

Break-In Protection: Break-in protection is one of the most common applications for security window tint. Security window tint creates an impenetrable layer of film that prevents intruders from entering your home even if they try to smash your windows.

Tempered Glass Alternative: Building codes demand that security glass must be used for windows where there is a safety concern, like stair windows or shower areas. Window tint provides a more affordable alternative to costly tempered glass and works just as powerfully.
