Public-targeted violence is on the rise. As a result, schools, churches, libraries, and government offices are calling for better security. But some security technologies (like bulletproof glass) are costly. And the funds simply aren’t there to finance these projects.
As a solution, administrators are turning to a more affordable alternative: bomb blast window film. In Denver, bomb blast window film can provide protection not only against terrorist attacks, but also every day threats as well like hail, blizzards, break-ins, and uv rays.
But is it really all that it’s cracked up to be? In other words, is it worth the cost? In this article, we’ll explore some of the common myths and facts pertaining to bomb blast prevention technology.
What Is Bomb Blast Window Film?
Bomb blast window film is a type of high-tech glass laminate that’s designed to protect buildings from extreme impact like blasts. The film is installed with a specialized primer that allows it to create a molecular bond with the glass pane of the window. Once it dries and cures, it increases the strength and flexibility of the window by 200%. In the event of a blast, the glass is able to absorb the shock and the energy from the explosion.
Bomb Blast Window Film: Fact Vs. Fiction
Bomb blast window film is a remarkable technology, but it does have its limitations. Here, we’ll explore some of the common misconceptions relating to this window treatment.
Myth #1: Bomb blast window film is the same as bullet proof glass.
False. These are two very different technologies. Bomb blast window film works in conjunction with existing glass, and doesn’t replace it. Furthermore, there really is no such thing as bullet proof glass. All glass breaks at some point if it’s hit hard enough and repeatedly.
Myth #2: You don’t need bomb blast window film if you have a good security system.
False. Security systems and staff are a smart choice for any property. But unfortunately both of these methods don’t address the most vulnerable point of building: the windows. We recommend adding bomb blast window film to your current security methods.
Myth #3: It doesn’t work.
False. Bomb blast window film is repeatedly tested and tried in field studies. It absolutely works. Check out online videos to see demonstrations.
