How To Protect Window Glass From Breaking

Posted by

Protecting your windows with Trio Plus window protection film has many benefits. It's also easy to fit yourself, and can be adapted to fit any size window. Broken window glass can be a safety hazard and costly to replace. To avoid such an occurrence, a significant number of home and property owners wish they could find ways to protect their windows from breakage. Below are a few ways that could help you out.

Window Protection Film

Window security films provide a very inexpensive solution to prevent your windows from breakage. They are added directly to the existing windows and protect them from shattering, which protects you from potential cuts.  Window protection films also prevent sun glare and can be used to as tint to prevent your home from prying eyes. You may also find some that are made from steel, which makes your windows hard to break even with blunt force. In turn, they protect your home from break-ins. You may also use these films to create a one-way effect to add privacy to your home.

Use Reinforced Glass

If you are thinking about replacing your windows, you may choose to have tempered glass installed. This type of glass goes through multiple heating and cooling phases to enhance its strength. They are very hard to break, which helps deter burglars. When broken, they crumble rather than breaking into thousands of pieces.

Glass Sandwich

This kind of protective window pane comes with a clear plastic film sandwiched between two glasses. The film is extremely tough, resists tear and can stretch when stressed. When the glass on either side is broken, the film stays intact. This method ensures that nothing or no one will get into your house. It even prevents water from flooding your house when it’s raining.

Plastic Windows

Also known as polycarbonate, this type of window is strong and lightweight. They also transmit light like regular glass and are indistinguishable for standard windows. The force required to break this kind of window depends upon the thickness of the pane, but they are generally tougher than glass windows. You may use them as an addition to reinforce the existing glass. You may install them on the exterior side to deter burglars.

More Secure

The security aspect is the main benefit of protecting your windows with security film. It will deter thieves, as they won't be able to break the glass, and if the glass did get damaged, then the film would hold it together, preventing it from shattering. In this instance, you would also be protected from broken glass cutting your skin. Your windows will also be safe from other damage, such as accidental scratches or markings. If the film gets damaged, it's easy to replace it any time you need to.

Additional Benefits

Trio Plus window protection film comes in different options, such as clear, frosted or tinted. The film can help to prevent any glare from the sunlight, and can even keep heat in, which will save you money on your energy bills. It helps block out UV rays too, so it’s ideal for use in a commercial or industrial construction project.

Simple to Fit

The protection film from Trio Plus is easy to fit and you won't need a professional to do it for you. Simply clean your window, spray the window and the film with the mounting liquid mixture, start to apply the film from the middle of the glass, and smooth it out towards the right and then to the left, pressing the liquid underneath towards the end of the film. Once it is in place, you need to wait for around three days for it to dry and don't touch it. You can then treat it like normal glass and give it a clean.

Prolonging the life of your windows is the key to enhancing safety and security in your home. You may use window protection films to improve the strength of your existing glass. It’s also a good idea to install reinforced plastic or tampered glass as an addition to the existing windows for safety.
