Earthquakes, stormy weather, and accidents can cause unspeakable building damage and injury. While you can't control them, you can still protect your tenants and employees, your business and your bottom line by fortifying your glass against these disasters. With 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films and 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment Systems, you can reduce the risk of flying glass, help guard against property or data losses, and ensure less business disruption.
When windows break due to high winds, severe storms or accidental impacts, the cost to replace them could pale in comparison to the costs of lost business, physical harm and damaged property. Protect yourself and your business from the risk of flying glass that could cause injuries and damage with 3M™ Safety & Security Films and 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment Systems.
Building windows may shatter and fall out of window frames, causing dangerous openings in the building. Falling shards of glass can also present serious risks to occupants, pedestrians and property.
Fortify your glass to reduce the risk of injury or damage. Tempered glass is stronger than standard annealed glass, but factors such as impurities can cause it to spontaneously explode. When that happens, it can create dangerous openings and even rain glass down on pedestrians.
3M™ Safety Window Film lets you upgrade your glass to code for a fraction of the cost of replacing the glass. Building codes may specify that glass near certain hazardous locations, such as wet surfaces, doors, floors, ramps and stairs, meet certain safety glazing requirements.

Glass is one of the weakest points on the building envelope, and glass shards are one of the most common causes of injury during disasters. Do you have a comprehensive strategy to address the safety concerns where glass is involved? Safety films should always be specified by performance and 3rd party testing, not film thickness. 3M invests heavily in performance-based third-party testing to validate that the films will not only perform in an actual disaster, but will do so for years to come.
