Security Film on Sideglass


Recommended Posts

I have glass right next to my front door.

All it would take is to break the glass and unlock the door and a crook is in.

A few questions.

It is double paned glass, could Security film be installed on the outside as well as on the inside ?

It measures 9 1/2" wide, and 69" in height. (of course, that was a quick eyeball measure)

If anyone has some leftover Security FIlm they would sell, contact me through TD.

If this would not be very expensive, might just have a Flatglass person do it.

Voltron comes to mind, and not sure who else is in the Dallas Area, but, again respond through TD.

Thanks !

yea you could put some security film on their both inside and outside if you wanted. You could use clear if you are worried about the dual pane glass but it shouldnt be a problem whatever shade of security film you choose. I think I might have some layin around somewhere if you need it.

PM me with a quote if you would.

I live about a mile from DeSoto High School.

If I decide to do it myself, I could pay for it and pick it up at the same time, and maybe get a pointer or 2 with it.

Clear is what I am looking for.

Thanks !

Security film on the outside?

IMO I would not install regular security film on the outside of your glass for the reason that the UV coating on it will break down over time and start to peel away and look like %&$#.

As well, you are not going to be gaining that much extra security by having it on the outside as well as the inside.. (yer not doubling up). It is the glue on the other side that is holding the film to the glass where the strength comes from.. .but then again.. it's your place

Just my opinion.

Since it's a sidelite, there's a 95% chance it's tempered, which means it will need to be anchored too.

Exactly.... The glass will be tempered and I would use Llumar ER PS4 which is an exterior 4 mil safety film. Include anchoring or your efforts are all for nothing. As DD said the glass is tempered and even with the film installed it would be a cinch to get inside without some type of frame attachment. I would sell you a piece of ER PS4 but my inventory is veeeerrry low and I can't spare any. Perhaps another dealer has some to offer. Good luck!

Filmblazer's right about an exterior safety film! Regular security films have the uv prohibitors in the adhesive so when installed inside it protects the polyester! If you install regular sf on the outside the sun is baking right on the film first! Won't last 2 years!

You can use graffitti film on the outside as well, its not specifically made for that but it you anchor it as well it will definately make it harder to get it. Graffitti film doesnt last for ever, but I have seen it last for 3 years in a retail setting here in chicago with minimal breakdown. The owner did have me replace it.
