In 2003, Florida-based jewelry store Associated Watch and Jewelry Buyers underwent a renovation to improve the store's aesthetic and better protect the precious merchandise inside. For increased security, the store owners had 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films installed on the storefront display windows. After an attempted break-in and robbery in 2020, the store was protected by 3M's safety films which proved to be highly effective, as no jewelry was stolen or damaged.
3M™ Safety & Security Window Films Benefits
Created as a security precaution, 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films is a modernized option that provides safety without the need for additional bars or barriers. This allows storefronts to be protected while maintaining an inviting look for customers. In the Associated Watch and Jewelry Buyers store, the virtually invisible safety films were installed on the storefront and door glazing.
3M™ Safety & Security Window Films hold shattered pieces of glass together to prevent further breaking or cracks. The safety film is also suitable for residential projects, as the Associated Watch and Jewelry Buyers store owner had them installed on his home windows after the attempted break-in.
- Holds shattered glass together
- The film is virtually transparent
- Increases anti-spall protection for laminated glass
