Atlanta Window Tints and Breakage
There are special types of security and safety window film on the
market that are different from the energy-saving or decorative window
tints. Security/safety films are manufactured to be more durable than
traditional window film, providing extra strength to windows during
storms and potential break-ins. These stronger window tints hold the
glass in place if it shatters and can also keep excess water outside of
the home in case a break in the window does occur during a storm.
Additionally, these tints are easier to install than other types of
protection, as no drilling is required; the tint can stay in windows 24
hours a day and not block a homeowner’s view.
Window films that are designed for decorative or solar-energy saving
purposes may offer limited glass breakage protection as a side benefit,
but they are not tested under the same conditions as security/safety
films. Homeowners should review the manufacturers’ information on the
specific benefits of any product they may be considering.
