The threats of violent weather, earthquakes, acts of vandalism and terrorism are all possibilities when you own a place of business today. Any one of these phenomena could cause massive window damage, which, in turn, could cause many injuries to your employees, tenants, shoppers, customers or visitors.
But now 3M™ Scotchshield™ Ultra High Performance Safety & Security Films can protect your building’s occupants. These films are so strong that U.S. Embassies use them to protect government employees from bomb blasts. Many schools have applied these same safety films to their windows to protect students from flying glass.
When professionally installed, 3M™ Scotchshield™ film is invisible, and forms a protective shield that resists penetration and helps keep glass in place through attempted break-ins, storms, earthquakes and explosions.
3M™ window film was put to the test in Oklahoma City in 1995, as evidenced by a letter written to the President of 3M™ by a man who’s office was six blocks from the Federal Center. He believes that the 3M™ window film in his office saved him from severe injury.
After a major disaster, glass companies are stretched to the limit to meet the demand for replacement windows, so having your broken glass held in place by window film while you wait can protect your building from the elements and can also save you from having to install costly temporary window covers, as this business was forced to do after the Loma Prieta earthquake.
Security film can also minimize damage to the interior of your building by preventing broken glass from embedding in carpets, furnishings, computers and other equipment, thus accelerating the clean-up process. If injuries do occur as a result of one of these events, the installation of 3M™ Scotchshield™ film can show due diligence on your part as owner or manager in taking steps to improve occupant safety.
And 3M™ Scotchshield™ films provide just as much UV protection
as solar films do, slowing the aging and fading of furniture, carpets,
woodwork and window coverings. You can even install a tinted version of
3M™ Scotchshield™ to provide glare reduction and energy conservation,
which can significantly cut air conditioning costs.
