The Safety series is designed to hold broken glass onto the film thus helping to reduce the possibility of injury or damage caused by flying glass shards. Films are available in thickness of 4 mil, 7mil, 8mil and 14mil.
The strength of a film is not only related to its thickness. By using layer after layer of micro-thin polyester films, our films outperforms other films of similar thickness. This superior performance is due to the flexibility of our film. So while other films tear, ours merely stretches – keeping the window in the frame even when the glass breaks. Our 4 mil film has passed the 400 foot-pound impact level of the ANSI Z97.1 Standard**
Another advantage of our film is that it is bonded to the glass with advanced 3M adhesives. So when the glass breaks, the shards are held together by the film to reduce the chance of injury.
