Safety window film – make your glass safe

Monday, March 02, 2015

safety window film In today’s world, terrorism, crime, vandalism, and everyday accidents are ever-increasing concerns. Safety window films provide an optically clear and robust barrier to not only strengthen glass, but keep it in place should it break. Not only is flying glass potentially lethal to a building’s occupants or the general public, but can ruin shop displays and/or expensive and sensitive computer equipment. If the windows remain intact, this can also prevent businesses suffering downtime and resultant loss of productivity. Either 175 micron safety film or 100 micron safety film can be easily and cost-effectively retro-fitted to any smooth glass surface, even curved, without the expense and inconvenience of glass replacement. Professionally installed by Sun-X, the film will comply with the most stringent industry standards, and carry a ten year warranty.  Read More
