Invest in an Added Layer of Invisible Protection
Enhanced Window Safety
When a building inspector walks through a newly constructed building, they sometimes notice that a window is not up to safety code. This setback often forces contractors to postpone a project completion date to replace the glass. Safety film provides as a cost and time effective alternative to replacing glass to meet safety glazing impact requirements. 3M has impact tested its films to pass safety-glass building codes such as ANSI Z97.1 or 16 CFR 1201. Safety film can be installed on existing glass to meet all standards of laminated glass, as opposed to replacing the glass entirely.
The benefits of safety film surpass code requirements. Additional benefits include:
99% UV blockage to prevent fading of floors and furniture
Reduced solar energy transmission to maintain comfortable interior temperatures
