How Window Films Make Your Retail Store Secure and Safe

Have you taken all the steps to ensure your retail store is secure?

One of the best ways you can improve your store’s security is by installing 3M™ Security Window Films.

3M™ Security and Safety Window Films add an additional layer of strength to your windows, which holds the glass together in the event of breakage. In addition to its high level of protection, the film is also inconspicuous.

Whether you’re looking for protection against forced entry and vandalism, accidental glass breakage, or a combination of solutions, 3M™ Window Films can help give you peace of mind.

Target loss prevention with 3M Window Films

Having effective loss prevention strategies in place can make or break your business. While common methods like tracking inventory using a point-of-sale (POS) system and installing security cameras may seem sufficient, retail establishments with unprotected windows remain susceptible.

Protect vulnerable entry points with 3M™ Ultra S800. The patented micro-layered laminate provides the maximum tear-resistance of any film on the market, deterring smash and grab burglaries.

Defend against vandalism with 3M Window Film

Many store owners have experienced first-hand the detrimental effects of vandalism. Graffiti-related vandalism tarnishes the overall appearance of your store, can be costly to remove and may even force you to replace your windows.

Protect your store from vandalism by installing 3M™ Anti-Graffiti Window Film. The optically clear, distortion-free film shields windows, surfaces, and graphics from vandalism, and damage. If the film becomes scratched or etched, it provides an invisible barrier that can be removed and replaced as opposed to replacing the glass itself, allowing you to maintain your store’s appearance without breaking the bank.

Guard against glass-breakage

3M™ Window Films also provide reinforcement. Even if your window is broken from a break-in attempt, it will not shatter. Rather than sending shards everywhere, 3M™ Ultra Safety & Security Film holds the glass intact with a strong acrylic adhesive, keeping your employees, customers and property safe from fragments of broken glass.

Prevent Product Damage

 As beautiful as the sun may feel seeping through your storefront windows, if left unfiltered, it can cause fading and sun damage to your furniture, carpets, floors, and inventory.

Protect your assets with the game-changing combination film 3M™ Ultra Prestige PR S70. The film is designed to offer the security protection your store needs all while reducing the effects of solar heat and fading. It even blocks and filters up to 99 percent of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which are the single largest cause of fading.

Reduce glare for increased comfort

Glare can be a nuisance to customers browsing through your store. Allow your customers to shop in peace by installing 3M™ Sun Control and Security Combination Films. These window films reduce solar glare by up to 78 percent and provide security and impact resistance for smash and grab crimes.
