All American Window Tinting, Inc. (AAWT), in Denver is the shatter-resistant security film and safety film window film expert. Shatter-resistant security film or safety film sometimes called glass fragment retention film is an optically clear, multilayer, polyester film that bonds to the window to reinforce the glass and help hold it in place upon impact. That can help protect from accidents near glass and even attempted break-ins.
Shatter-resistant fragment retention film and safety and security window films are described in terms of “mils” which is a measurement of thickness as one-thousandth of an inch. Thickness can vary from 4 mil to 15 mil. The varying thickness is achieved by mechanically laminating multiple layers of film together w/ aggressive adhesive coatings. Frosted opaque and tinted solar control films are available in some, but not all, MIl thickness as well.

Shatter Resistant or Fragment Retention Film can be installed a couple different ways. The first is installed on the daylight area of the glass. Which means the security film will only hold the glass together and in the frame as long as some of the glass edges remains unbroken along the line where the daylight part of glass meets the frame. Once the edge totally breaks the film and broken glass will come out of the frame. The glass will still stay together with the film but it will break away from the frame. The shatter-resistant film can also be anchored to the window frame itself using a silicone adhesive or Impact Protection Adhesive. The film becomes a flexible membrane holding the glass together and in the frame. Using an Impact Protective Adhesive will be the more effective installation
