Although they are a very necessary component of any attractive residential property, windows are probably the weakest point in your home’s defences against intruders and they are often the first casualty as far as accidental damage is concerned. However, there is no need to go to the extreme of bricking up every pane of glass in your home or installing unsightly metal grilles everywhere because we have the perfect solution for you. Our safety and security window films are manufactured to the highest standards and are designed to withstand a variety of threats, some of which may be common occurrences in Toronto homes and some of which are definitely not. Developed in a part of the world where terrorism is a constant threat, our 12 MIL window armour will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your windows have been reinforced with the finest products currently on the market.
Installing Safety & Security Window Films in Your Home
At Window Armour, we don’t just supply you with high quality protective film and leave you to get on with it. The installation of our products needs to be carried out by experienced professionals in order to be completely effective and we have a first-class team ready and waiting to install our film in your home.
- Measuring – Our team will first visit your home to determine which of your windows need protecting with our industrial grade film and take accurate measurements of each one. These measurement are then passed to our production facility.
- Cutting – Your safety & security window films are then cut to size, using the aforementioned measurements. Rather than being the exact size of the windows that they will be protecting, the pieces of film that we cut will stop around 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch short of the edge of each pane of glass. This is to allow room for them to expand and contract in the heat and cold as the weather varies throughout the course of the year. A bead of Dow Corning 995 structube silicon is added for extra strength!
- Application – We will arrange a convenient date and time for our team to visit your home and apply the film to the windows that were identified as being vulnerable to damage, either intentional or accidental. Before the safety & security window films are applied, your windows will be thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt that may be present. The film is then placed on the glass and the powerful adhesive begins to bond to it. Within 24 hours, it should have dried and formed a very strong bond.
- Drying Time – In common with all safety & security window films for sale in Toronto, ours have a water-based mounting solution that may take some time to dry after the application has been completed. Although the bond between film and glass should be formed within 24 hours, a small amount of the mounting solution often remains between the two. This will eventually disappear and you should not, under any circumstances, attempt to remove it yourself by pricking a hole in the film. The length of time that it takes to dry completely could be anywhere from a few days to a few months, depending on the location of the windows and the weather.
The Best Protection Available
Safety & security window films are available in a variety of thicknesses, ranging from 4 MIL all the way up to 15. Our film is 12 MIL thick, which means that in addition to all the normal threats, it is strong enough to withstand hurricane damage, explosions and concerted attacks by potential intruders.
