Throughout the long history (nearly 60 years) of the window film industry thicker security glazing window film coatings provided a significant level of protection against forced entry, smash and grab crimes and wind blown flying debris.
The Federal government has used these films to protect GSA and Military personnel and property around the USA as well as overseas.
Blast protection (mitigation) particularly after Oklahoma City focused on a specified level of protection and Federal officials determined a baseline level of performance expectations that many manufacturers have met (documented testing available.)
