What is Window Security film?

Window security film acts as an invisible shield protecting your glass windows and doors against smash and grab burglary and other forms of impact.

Glass windows and doors are the most vulnerable part of your home or office. Upon impact ordinary glass shatters leaving an entrance for intruders. In contrast, when security film is installed intruders cannot readily penetrate the glass. Usually when intruders realize that glass is fitted with security film they become discouraged and quickly flee the scene.

Why Window Security film?

Windows are the most vulnerable part of your home or office. According to Crime Reduction Canada, a third of all break-ins are through a window. The longer it takes a burglar to break-in the more likely it is that he will be caught. Window security film acts as an invisible shield protecting your windows. When an intruder attempts to smash your window with a rock or another burglar tool and realizes that he can't break-in chances are he will leave.

"A third of burglars get in through a window"

-Crime Reduction Canada

"Police have no suspects in connection to a morning robbery in Yorkville [Toronto] where three paintings worth about $60,000 were stolen yesterday. A large rock was used to break the front window of Gallery Gevik..."

Applications of PROFILON®

Civil Disobedience

PROFILON® was invented in the Netherlands and sold extensively in Germany as well as Britain as protection against skin-heads and neo Nazis who regularly attacked police. PROFILON® was installed on all "guest workers" buildings in Germany to protect the occupants from fire bombing. PROFILON® is able to absorb shock preventing Molotov cocktails and other arson attacks from penetrating through glass and setting fire to buildings.

Terrorist Bombing

PROFILON® was originally developed for fragment retention in terrorist bombings. Throughout the IRA attacks and the Bader-Meinhoff era in Germany, PROFILON® was the only laminated film on the market effective in protecting individuals against shards of flying glass caused by terrorist bombings.

PROFILON® security films have advanced significantly over the years. Today, PROFILON® ER1- developed to meet European ER1 blast resistance standards - is the most durable film on the market, capable of withstanding extreme shockwaves from minimal standoff distances.

Smash & Grab Burglary

PROFILON® AX A1 and PROFILON® ER1 are both acknowledged by UL/ULC as well as European authorities as burglary resistive window protection for glass that is at a minimum 1/8th of an inch (3mm) thick.

The optical quality of PROFILON® is unparalleled. It is virtually undetectable when installed on windows.

PROFILON® AX A1 15 mil (UL/ULC listed)
Windows

PROFILON® AX A1 is a 3 ply, impact resistant security film protecting windows against smash & grab burglaries, vandalism and arson attacks.With special adhesives and a proprietary laminating process, PROFILON® AX A1 is able to withstand multiple impacts without giving way.

PROFILON® AX A1 was the first film ever to be listed by Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in the US as burglary resistive. The UL/ULC test is extremely rigorous requiring 5 steel ball drops from 12 ft and a single steel ball drop from 40 ft onto a 2ft X 2ft panel of conventional glass (listed down to 1/8 inch glass).

The optical quality of PROFILON® AX A1 is the best in the world. It is virtually undetectable when installed on glass.

PROFILON® AX A1 is made in an ISO listed facility using a proprietary "Sandglider" cold laminating process which insures perfect optics together with a 25 micron mounting and laminating adhesive structure which allows the layers to inter-act. This creates a softer more malleable composite capable of absorbing significant impact from shock waves or projectiles.

PROFILON® AX A1 has been used for over 25 years for the protection of government facilities, embassies and the military as well as thousands of corporate facilities concerned about multiple threats ranging from burglary to terrorist bombing. It has been extensively tested to virtually every standard for shock waves and is the most versatile of all security films on the market.
