Benefits like:

Cost

Likely the best thing about using safety window film in lieu of tempered glass is the cost. Tempered glass is very expensive and removing old glass is extremely time-consuming. Safety and security film can be applied in as little as one day and costs 50%-75% less.

Storm Protection

Safety film keeps your home’s glass and family protected in the case of an earthquake, and wind-related storms, like tornados, from flying debris.  Window safety film holds the broken glass in place so it can’t harm you or your family.

Home Security

While window safety glass won’t totally stop an intruder but it definitely will slow them down! A huge factor in home security, thwarting an intruder is buying you more time for you to call 911 and escape or get to a safe room to defend yourself. Security films resist tearing and make windows much more difficult to penetrate. It helps hold glass fragments together after impact–meaning the intruder has to work hard and for a long time to actually get in.
