Hinder Smash and Grab Burglaries

A burglar can smash through your windows and steal your valuables like; computers, tools, jewellery, confidential business information… all within a matter of minutes. Glass-Gard is a clear “safety/security film” that when applied to the inside surface of glass, can help keep glass fragments together on the surface of the film while the glass remains in the frame. This results in varying degrees of safety and security depending on what construction of window film chosen for the job as well as type of glass and frame. Very often a necessary component in the installation of safety/security window film is additional framing support around perimeter of the frame. A product that accomplishes this is our Film Flex System. Glass-Gard keeps glass together if broken, but the Film Flex System helps keep the film/glass combination locked inside the perimeter of the frame.

How Glass-Gard Works

Glass-Gard works by having the window film’s super aggressive patented adhesive form a molecular bond to the glass and hold it together, even after multiple impacts. While the glass may break or crack, it remains adhered to the film and in most cases will still be intact in its frame. The tensile strength, coupled with Glass-Gard’s elasticity and resistance to shear aids in the ability of eliminating the chance of objects penetrating the glass and window film.

Use Glass-Gard with Alarms

When Glass-Gard is used in conjunction with certain alarms, the alarm is triggered with the first impact in which the glass breaks yet access is still denied. Repeated attempts create more noise and take more time before access is gained. Since most smash and grabs take place in mere minutes the resultant time delay and noise factor is generally sufficient to scare off most would be thieves in favour of easier targets.

Protection During Disasters

One of the major causes of injury is human-to-glass impact. Glass-Gard safety film decreases and virtually eliminates injury of this type. Human-to-glass encompasses direct impacts such as falling into or walking through a pane of glass as well as flying glass due to explosions and natural catastrophes. Glass-Gard is fast becoming the tool of choice for earthquake, tornado and hurricane preparedness.

Other Benefits of Glass-Gard

Other benefits of Glass-Gard include fade reduction, and protection from UV rays. Glass-Gard is also available in tinted and reflective varieties adding to the list of benefits; glare reduction, additional comfort, potential energy savings, and additional fade reduction.

To help reduce the possibility of injury during an earthquake, over 6000 pieces of glass at the Victoria General Hospital have been treated with our Glass-Gard GGL 400 seismic mitigation window film. 75% of the window film has solar reflective qualities further helping reduce eye strain, solar heat gain and improving the HVAC operating systems.

Protection from Harm, Crime, Destruction and Loss

Ordinary window glass is the most vulnerable part of your home, office, building or automobile. But with our safety and security window film applied, glass becomes a 24-hour-a-day barrier or shield against accidental falls, criminals, vandals, violent weather like hurricanes and earthquakes, and even industrial and terrorist explosions.

When ordinary annealed glass breaks, it poses considerable danger. The shattered pieces become flying daggers that can cause serious injury or even death. Plus, broken glass makes it easy for criminals, vandals and destructive weather to enter your home, storefront, office or business. Safety and security window films reduce the hazards of broken glass by keeping the pieces together and safely attached to the film. Even tempered safety glass, which breaks into rounded, less dangerous pieces upon impact, can be made safer with our film applied to the interior surface.

All of our safety and security window films offer protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays by reducing interior damage caused by fading. Some of them can also provide energy savings and improve indoor comfort like our solar window films.
