Window Film Provides Reliable Protection for Your Home or Office Building
When accidents, storms or intruders shatter your windows, flying glass can cause significant harm to your home and family. This risk can be dramatically reduced – and its effects prevented – with safety and security window film.
An Invisible Barrier
Made with thick, heavy-duty polyester bonded by the industry’s strongest adhesives, our safety and security films provide a clear – yet powerful – barrier that holds glass in place in the event of an impact or earthquake. Although this barrier protects you against the damaging effects of flying shattered glass, it also makes it much more difficult for an intruder to smash through your windows quickly.
Auto Styles‘ safety films meet the toughest industry standards in the United States, Europe and around the world, so you can trust that you’re using a product that works. And because they’re optically clear, you won’t even know it’s there – until you need it.
In today’s world, crime, vandalism, terrorism, natural disasters, and everyday accidents are real concerns. Made with thick, heavy-duty polyester bonded by strong adhesives, safety and security films provide an optically clear yet powerful barrier that helps hold glass in place should impact occur. Danger from wind borne debris, seismic tremors, and accidental impact can be greatly reduced. These films are also ideal for use in high-traffic areas with windows or other surfaces vulnerable to smash-and-grab theft or vandalism.
Many cities in the world are experiencing the growing problem of vandals tagging glass and other surfaces in public places using mechanical etching tools, acid, and paint. Anti-graffiti window film, is now the front solution to cost-effectively mitigate damage. These specially designed films, nearly invisible once installed, provide a removable, sacrificial surface that can reduce or eliminate the need for glass replacement. A single replacement of just one window can easily exceed ten or twenty times the cost of film installation.
Simply Remove the “Tagged” Film
Whether they are applied to vertical or sloped glass, or mirrors or stainless steel, in malls, on buses, in office buildings or on subways, installation and replacement by professionally trained staff is quick and easy, avoiding the disruption caused by window replacement. When vandals strike, the film is simply removed along with the tags, revealing the unspoiled glass surface ready for the replacement film.
Made from tough polyester laminates and bonded coatings, Energy Saving Window Films
- Reduce solar energy heat gain by up to 85%
- Block 99% of damaging UV rays
- Improve occupant comfort by reducing heat and glare
- Low-E (low-emissivity) films improve insulating properties for year round savings
Save Up to 40% on Energy Costs
Windows play an important role in regulating heat and energy in your home, and according to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately 50% of an average home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Window films can lower heating and cooling expenses by rejecting solar heat from the outside, eliminating hot and cold spots inside, and helping to prevent heat from escaping.
Comfort and Energy Savings
Window Film can boost the performance of nearly any glazing system, significantly reducing energy consumption and peak demand. Professional energy audits estimate that buildings retrofitted with energy saving films could realize annual energy savings as high as 15% with improved HVAC efficiency, reduced carbon emissions and an average payback within three years.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-third of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows, and nearly 75% of existing windows are not energy efficient.
Windows are an important part of any home, from the light they let in to views they reveal. However, they also create a host of problems ranging from excessive glare, heat build-up and high energy costs to the premature fading of carpets, furniture and draperies. Window film can help you control these problems while providing increased comfort and lower overall energy costs.
