Get Your Property Up to Code with 3M Window Film


Building code may require that glass in certain areas, such as near wet surfaces, doors, floors, ramps, and stairs, meet certain safety glazing requirements such as tempered glass. This requirement is to help protect people from the hazards associated with broken glass. 3M Safety & Security Windows Films and 3M Impact Protection Adhesive can help you quickly and easily meet safety glazing impact requirements at a fraction of the cost of replacement glazing. This is especially helpful if the wrong type of glass was installed during a construction project and the local building inspector won’t provide a Use & Occupancy Certificate.
