Safety and security film is sometimes called Shatter resistant security film or safety film. Sometimes it is even called glass fragment retention film. This material is an optically clear, multi layer, polyester film that bonds to the inside of the window to reinforce the glass and help hold it in place upon impact. The polyester material has a high degree of elasticity which helps make it more resistant to a quick and easy break of the glass. Making it more difficult to break the glass will delay the time the would be robber has to enter the premises.
Safety and Security film can be installed a couple different ways. The first is installed on the daylight area of the glass. Which means the security film will only hold the glass together and in the frame as long as some of the glass edge remains unbroken along the line where the daylight part of glass meets the frame. Once the edge totally breaks the film and broken glass will come out of the frame. The glass will still stay together with the film but it will break away from the frame.
