Safety & Security Window Film Suppliers UK
For added protection against accidents and intrusions, choose Dymond Defender Safety & Security Window Films. Our safety and security films help strengthen glass and reduces the risk of flying shards in case of accidental or deliberate impact or explosion.
Dymond Products Ltd Technical Window Film has a vast range of ‘Dymond Defender’ safety and security window films that can help reduce the risk of an intruder entering your premises, shop, office, factory or home.
Security window films applied to your existing glass windows can reduce the ability of a person being able to enter through a buildings glazing.
The films do this by Holding the Glass Together and the window film will act as a failsafe in the case of the glass shattering, holding the fragments in place and preventing entry.
Glass, particularly toughened glass is far more fragile than people are lead to believe. Using the correct equipment a person can easily cause a toughened glass pane to completely shatter within seconds, opening up a potential point of entry into your premises.
Due to our films being flexible they are not subject to shattering and therefore are the ideal solution to intruder protection. There are many types of these films available depending on your individual circumstances.
