What Does Security Window Film Look Like?

Once someone has become familiar with Layr’s security window film and its many benefits, they almost inevitably ask, “What does it look like?” After all, that level of protection, they assume, must block the view in some way.

Nothing could be further from the truth! We know how glass doors and windows make the difference between dull and dark and light and bright! You care about security, but you don’t want to live in a jail cell.

Our installers make sure the view’s just right

Layr is a patented polyester window film manufactured by 3M. Layr improves strength while blocking UV rays and reducing energy usage in the home – while allowing 97% of the sun’s visible light to come through glass doors and windows. Keep out the bad and let in the good.

Our security consultants have experience, knowledge, and samples to show you the product, how it’s applied, and what it will cost with an estimate customized for your home. If you like the product, great – we’ll coordinate logistics and installation, using one of our trained, licensed and insured teams – all on your schedule.

These installers are experts, and that expertise is important. Ever apply a protective film to your phone? Now imagine applying a much thicker film to your glass doors and windows, permanently and for security purposes, and you’ll understand just how time and labor intensive it is and how important it is to hire expert installers.

Window film: not the best DIY project

Although the film is reasonably priced, if you try to install it yourself, you’ll end up buying it twice. Our installers:

  • Have training across hundreds and thousands of jobs
  • Precision cut the film itself
  • Use special equipment to customize the fit to within ⅛ of an inch.
  • Clean windows thoroughly to ensure that every speck of dirt and dust are removed
  • Apply the film using specialty adhesive
  • Compress the film to ensure all of the water and air are removed
  • Re-roll following initial application in order to ensure a perfect fit

The film bonds to glass doors and windows, creating an air-tight, shatter-resistant shield. Once the film and glass cure, you are left with a transparent, custom-fit film that optimizes your home’s security and energy efficiency while maintaining the beauty and light you love.

Done incorrectly, it looks terrible, with poor cuts, bubbling, and blistering. You don’t want that on your home or office, and we guarantee you’ll never get it with Layr. Layr’s product and installation are guaranteed for as long as you live in your home, both by us and by the 3M Company. That’s double the peace of mind for you and your family.
