As a Salt Lake City homeowner, you may think you don’t need safety glass in your home or that safety and security window film is something for commercial spaces only.  However, the truth is, here at Salt Lake City Window Tinting, we install safety and security window film on a lot of homes here in the Salt Lake City area.  This is because safety window film offers a world of benefits to homeowners and business owners alike.  The benefits and films may be slightly different between homes and commercial locations but the end goal–safety and security–is the same.

Safety and Security Window Film for Protection Against Natural Disaster

Safety and security window films protect from high-velocity projectiles like bullets and bombs but also stand up to flying debris from severe storms.  From tree branches tossed about in a tornado to rocks and debris during a hurricane–window film keeps shattered glass intact and stops it from flying around during a natural disaster.  As it happens, the biggest cause of injury to humans during a natural disaster is flying glass.  So, when glass shrapnel is kept soundly adhered to a film–your home is much safer during the sometimes powerful storms we see here in Salt Lake City.

Home safety and security window films protect against accidents  

Glass is one of the biggest dangers to your family in the case of an accident.  Things like large plate glass windows, glass in slippery/wet areas like showers, or glass features on balconies can all end up causing grievous injuries should a fall into them occur. A simple and affordable way to make these areas safer and a workaround for installing tempered glass is window film.

Home safety and security window films Protect From UV Rays

Broken glass is dangerous but even more of a threat to our health here in Salt Lake City is actually the rays of the sun. UV rays aren’t thought of as a big threat when you are inside but they are truly insidious.  The untreated glass of your windows does not stop the rays of the sun. While safety and security window film is made to protect from the dangers inherent in breaking glass–it also blocks UV rays too. In fact, it has an SPF 1000 which will help reduce the harmful effects of the sun like skin and eye diseases or cancers.
