Anti-Intruder Security Film

intruderWhen considering how to protect your home or business  against intruders think beyond noisy alarms, and unattractive grills and bars.  Consider ALL PROTECTION TINTING’s wide range of highly effective Security Film.

Security Films deter intruders due to the unexpected resistance and therefore delay entry, providing highly effective protection against smash and grab thefts.

Security films are available in clear or tinted and retain a high level of clarity over the years, and come with a 10 year warranty.  The film is applied to existing windows; providing added protection without the expense of having new windows or glass fitted.


During 2006, ALL PROTECTION TINTING conducted an inhouse demonstration, for a major bank, to illustrate the benefits of a security film and structural sealant combinations.  In doing so, we aimed to
determine the force required, in real terms, to penetrate the glass and gain access.

The security film and Dow Corning 995 applied to side A had cured for 15 days.  Curing time to achieve full performance strength is normally 3 weeks.
