Commercial properties throughout San Antonio range from government buildings to large arenas that can hold tens of thousands of guests at any given time. The one thing these commercial properties all have in common is the need for premium security. When deciding what type of safety and security window film your property needs, it may be tough to decide between bomb blast and ballistic resistance. Both of these specialty security window films offer significant safety benefits but do have different traits.
The Difference Between Bomb Blast and Ballistic Resistant Window Film
Bomb blast and ballistic resistant window film are both specialty security window film systems that require multiple layers of security film, an attachment system, and a glass strengthening agent. Bomb blast window film is designed specifically to better absorb the high impact caused by explosions. Ballistic resistant window film requires a thicker existing glass to be effective but is designed to better absorb the high impact from gunfire. Ballistic resistant window film is a more costly option than bomb blast but does have the added benefit of being both ballistic resistant and bomb blast protective. If you’re looking for both qualities, you’ll have to pick the ballistic resistant window film. Both options offer premium security but won’t stop a perpetrator from gaining access to your property– it’ll only slow them down.
