Safety vs. Security Film
The Products section of this site does an excellent job in describing how Safety & Security films are constructed. But what is the difference between a Safety and Security film? At Johnson Window Films, we use the term Safety Film to describe Trident films with a thickness of 7 mil. or less. Any Trident films with a thickness of 8 mil. or higher is called a Security Film.
Benefits of Safety Films:
• Specifically designed for protection against accidental breakage, or smaller impact situations.
• Holds glass in place on impact, preventing dangerous flying glass shards.
• Johnson’s Safety films are perfect for residential windows.
• Available in clear as well as solar control shades to block heat, UV rays and glare.
Benefits of Security Films:
• Security films offer superior glass hazard mitigation, and are best utilized for windows subject to severe glass threats such as bomb blasts, earthquakes and hurricanes.
• Thicker design helps hold glass together at higher impact situations.
• Suited for government buildings plus communities in high-risk hurricane (e.g. Florida) and earthquake (e.g. California) areas.
• Only available as a clear film.
