Don’t get caught off guard. 3M Safety and Security Window Film provides windows with an invisible layer of protection, holding glass in place in the event of breakage. Rest assured knowing that your space is better prepared for anything that comes its way.

3M Safety & Security Window Films

Maintain the appearance of your windows and continue to enjoy the views of your surroundings while knowing that your building is safe and secure. 3M Safety & Security Window Film is designed to hold glass together in the event of breakage. This helps to protect occupants from the dangers of flying glass shards and maintains the integrity of the building envelope, keeping occupants safe while emergency personnel respond to the scene.

3M’s Safety & Security Film strengthens glass by forming an invisible protective membrane on your windows. It helps to prevent glass from breaking and in the event that glass does break, it helps to hold that broken glass in place.


3M Safety & Security Films are available for Commercial and Residential applications. Areas of opportunity include first floor windows and glass doors (hinged or sliding) as they are easily broken by burglars.

Protecting Schools with Safety & Security Film

In recent years, schools and universities have begun to incorporate 3M Safety & Security Films as part of their comprehensive security plans. Security Film helps to keep students, teachers, and staff safe inside while making it difficult for any armed intruder to gain entry. This delay provides valuable time needed for emergency personnel to arrive on scene.


Riots / Smash & Grab

One of the fastest ways for an intruder to gain entry into a home or office is through the window. Whether prying the lock or breaking the glass, a building’s window is a weak point. 3M Safety & Security Window Films help deter smash-and-grab burglars, rioters, or looters by eliminating their most crucial weapon – time. By adding shatter-resistance, penetrating a glass opening is more difficult. Since intruders rely on quick and easy access for a successful break-in, a door or window that slows them down is one that will probably make them go away.


Active Shooter

An individual looking to harm building occupants will most likely have a plan. Realizing that most front doors and other access points are locked during hours of operation, a shooter will seek entry through the path of least resistance – generally a window. He will shoot through a window, allow the shattered glass to fall to the ground, and walk through the inevitable opening that is created. From there he can wreak havoc until he is stopped.


Terrorist Bomb

When an explosion occurs, nearby glass may implode into tiny sharp fragments and subject building occupants to a high level of danger. Third party testing has shown that 3M Safety & Security Films hold glass in place during an explosion. 3M fragment retention films meet or exceed federal government standards when tested to the GSA/DOD/USACE Security Criteria. The performance of fragment retention film can be improved by the use of an attachment system.



Glass can be your worst enemy during a hurricane. When unprotected glass breaks, shards can be sent flying and cause severe injury to occupants and property damage. 3M Safety & Security Window Films help to keep flying glass from harming occupants and in many cases will help to keep out wind and rain.

Spontaneous Breakage

New highly energy efficient commercial windows are manufactured with nickel sulfide. Nickel sulfide can become unstable which causes the glass to spontaneously combust, shatter, and fall to the ground. Anyone underneath the flying glass will be injured and possibly killed. 3M’s Safety & Security Films with attachment system can help to hold that broken glass in place.
