Installing high impact security film for glass offers superior protection against the sun, intruders, and Mother Nature’s worst moments. Glass is a vulnerable entry point on every building. We all know when glass breaks into smaller shards, it poses an immediate danger to those nearby.

How does Security Film work?

When intruders attempt to break in, the film works as a deterrent. Slowing them down and making it more difficult and time consuming to gain entry. This creates more precious time for occupants to get to safety and alert authorities. Every second counts when it comes to emergency responses.

Security film is much thicker than your average window tint. It is 8 millimeters (or thicker). Once our installers clean the glass, we install the film using more pressure when applying it than we typically would. Next step is enveloping the film to the window frame using a commercial grade caulking, paired with special techniques acquired and taught by our master installers with over 20 years of experience. Working with this kind of caulking can get messy quickly if you don’t know what you are doing. Our experts have spent years researching methods and tools that allow our installers to give the most natural border frame possible.

Over the course of time, school shootings have sadly become more and more frequent. This leaves all of us asking, what can we do to help ensure the safety of students, teachers and faculty? Midwest Tinting is installing security film on schools in the metro in an effort to help provide peace of mind.

How does the security film installation process work?

It starts with an estimate. Our experts will come to you, free of charge!

  • We will take measurements of the windows you want covered (most often in entry ways and or ground level classrooms).
  • We asses film options that best fit your needs. We have clear security film that does not change the appearance of the glass, and we have solar security film that provides reflectivity and a darker appearance, while both films offer 99.9% UV protection. You have the choice of 8 mil or 14 mil film.
  • We send you a proposal containing the product you’ve selected, measurements, and cost.
  • Once you approve the work order, we schedule a day and time for installation.
  • When working with a government grant, you apply for X amount $ towards your desired projects and then once the work is done you are responsible for providing receipts for what the money went towards.
