Safety & Security Film Basics

Safety & Security Film Basics

Working with Safety & Security films is the most challenging aspect of window film installation. Just because a dealer is proficient in installing solar control films on a car or residential home, it doesn’t necessarily mean he or she is equipped to handle the difficulties associated with thicker Safety & Security films. In fact, there are many cases where installers are in over their heads because they’ve not been properly trained in the art of installing this type of film.

For dealers new to Safety & Security films, JWF recommends multiple practice sessions with a thick Security film before accepting an actual Safety or Security film job. Otherwise, dealers run the risk of damaging their reputation, and losing future business, by delivering a less than professional installation. This section will cover some of the more basic components relating to Safety & Security films including:
