What Is Bulletproof Glass?
You may not know this but–the word bulletproof is actually a misnomer because any glass or polycarbonate surface can be eventually penetrated with enough force, the right caliber bullet or enough time. That being said, there are materials that are fairly close to what would be called bulletproof. This includes things like polycarbonate, which is a high-density plastic and actual thick glass panes stacked together. As far as “bulletproofing” these methods are actually quite effective but there are a number of downsides which more or less make them prohibitive for everyday applications–especially in restaurants. For making windows in these types of hospitality settings bullet resistant, window film is a great fit for everything from beefing up security to making windows actually resistant to bullets–read on to find out why.
Why Window Film Is The Best Way To Make Your Denver Restaurant Windows Bullet Resistant
Restaurants in Denver looking for ways to amp up security and stay protected from everything from break-ins to random acts of violence should consider adding window film as a way to accomplish these things and, best of all, window film comes with other benefits too.
Window Film Is Cost Effective: There are a few ways to make windows more secure and even bullet resistant. As it were, these methods are extremely expensive. This is because additions like polycarbonate windows and multiple layers of thick glass both require the removal of your current windows and the installation of new ones which sends the cost skyrocketing. Furthermore, the thick glass or polycarbonate materials that make up these windows are incredibly expensive too. Window film is the superior option here because films and frames are simply added to existing windows–making it a very cost-effective solution.
Window Film Preserves Clarity: After bullet-resistant window film is applied it is pretty much invisible allowing for a perfectly unobstructed and lovely view for your Denver restaurant patrons. Unlike other methods, like polycarbonate windows, which are slightly hazy, window film allows your place of business to keep that “clear glass” so your retain the ambiance of your restaurant that is critical for success.
Window Film Has Many Other Benefits: Beyond just repelling bullets, window film has a lot of other attractive benefits. Solar control, glare reduction, and energy-efficiency are just a few of the perks window film comes with which help your Denver restaurant get and stay ahead!
