Window Film Kept the Hail Out
Many Colorado Springs residents are repairing and replacing windows after the series of severe hail storms we’ve had. Have you noticed some neighbors don’t have tarps over their windows? It’s likely because they had window film installed and it kept their windows from busting out. Check out these images of the hail damage done to a window that had solar control window film installed by Colorado Sun Control. The inner panel of glass which had film installed stayed intact in the window frame instead of shattering glass all over, like so many residents dealt with. This family was protected from glass shards and hail stones coming in their home, unlike many other neighbors whose windows had been compromised in the storm.
Window Film Adds A Layer of Protection
As you make your repairs, consider the addition of window film for an added layer of protection from broken glass. It may have been a rare storm to see such damaging hail, but conditions exist for it to happen again. While window film will not prevent the glass from getting broken, it will keep you, your family, and your home safe from glass shards.
More Than Safety and Security
There is no doubt adding window film gives you peace of mind protection in a hail storm or any situation where windows could get broken, but it also works to control excessive heat gain, adds privacy and reduces glare.

Specialty Security Film for Homes
One of the window film options available for residential application is a security film designed with safety in mind, known as security film. These films are constructed from high strength polyester in varying thicknesses and tensile strengths. They come with solar control and heat rejection properties or available as a crystal-clear option. With proper attachment systems, security films can even be blast proof, that is the glass would stay in the window frame even in a blast, providing the ultimate in protection. That’s not typically done in a residential application but evidence it will definitely keep the hail from busing out your windows!
