Every time I look out my windows one thing comes to mind. How easy it would be to just take a rock, brick, bat or hammer and break the glass to into my house. I’m sure it’s that way with just about every home. How many homeowners really sit down and think about someone breaking in.
Just how hard it it to get into your windows? Not very!
Shatter Guard window film will provide extra protection for your windows. This film will make it harder to actually break the glass. It gives you an extra layer of protection for you and your family. Since it will take longer to beat on the glass, chances are someone will hear what is going on. This is what you want.
Making noise and taking too much time to break into a house is a criminal’s worst situation. They want to get in and out quickly.
Yes it’s a little pricey, but it just may prevent someone from violating your home
Once a burglar enters the home and you know that this happened, feeling of being safe in may disappear. You could have a hard time staying there. Moving to a different place could also be on your mind. There is nothing worse than losing that feeling of security. Especially in the place that you thought was safe.
I used to think that the window being locked was good enough. Then my mind was changed. I put my hand through a window with practically no effort (it was an accident) and ended up with stitches in my wrist.
If that window would have had Shatter Guard Window Film on it, my hand would not have gone through the window.
Once Shatter Guard is applied to your windows, it will take a lot more effort, muscle and time to get through them.
Shatter Guard offers extra for a child’s safety
How many times have you seen a child climb up on a piece of furniture to look out a window. What do they do? The kid immediately starts to bang on the glass. The parent rushes to stop them for fear of the glass breaking.
This window film will make it more difficult for a child to actually break the glass.
Whats a parent’s worse nightmare? Their child being taken from the home. If they are in a first-floor bedroom, the window is the place an abductor is going to use.
How Does this window film work?
The film absorbs the impact and distributes the energy across the whole sheet that was applied to the window. Like anything else there is a limit. If banged on enough with enough force, eventually the glass will break. By this time it is most likely that someone aroung has noticed what is going on.
How easy is this to install?
It’s pretty easy. All you have to do is cut a piece that is slightly larger than the window. This way you can trim the edges to get a perfect fit.
Taking your time to do the installation is key. Go slow and follow the directions and you will end up with a professional looking job.
Another installation method is to get a piece of cardboard. Cut the cardboard to the size of the glass in the window. Now you cut the film to the perfect size of the glass.
If you ever tried installing other kinds of window tint or film it can be aggravating at times. Some people just can’t seem to get all the air bubbles out. If this happens to you, a professional may be your best bet to install it.
Does the thickness of the film matter?
The quality of the film has more to do with how it performs. You may see other films that come in different thicknesses and say that this makes a difference. Don’t be fooled. These are knock offs of infreior quality and performance. If you don’t believe me, try one of them.
Will this discolor over time?
It will not discolor. The weather won’t affect it since it is installed on the inside of the window. If you have a problem with it, there is a limited lifetime warranty.
The film won’t void your window warranty either. It’s not tinted so it won’t retain heat that can cause the glass to crack.
The verdict is a Thumbs up!
I give this product my approval and a thumbs up. It makes it harder for a would-be robber to break in through a window. Since it will take longer, it will most likely draw unwanted attention.
It will be much harder for a child to break the glass by banging on it. This makes it safer for homes with young children.
It won’t stop a bullet but will make your home a safer place.
