Security Films

What does “smash and grab” mean?

“Smash and grab” is the media term used to describe the process of a burglar breaking (smash) through a window or glass door in an office home or retail store, and removing (grab) valuables like computers, tools, jewelry, confidential business information… all within a matter of minutes.

How does Glass-Gard work to help prevent “smash and grab”?

Glass-Gard works by having the film form a molecular bond to the glass that holds it together, even after multiple impacts. The glass while it may be broken or cracked, remains adhered to the film and in most cases is still intact inside the frame.

Where should I use Glass-Gard?

Anywhere that you keep valuables that can be accessed through glass and virtually anywhere there is glass, be it in your home, office, or storefronts. Over 70% of all break-ins occur through glass.

Specialty and Decorative Films

Where and why are specialty and graphic films installed?

Specialty and graphic films are best suited for applications that require day or night privacy without sacrificing natural light levels in both commercial and residential applications.


Commercial applications are found in banks, restaurants, health clubs, hotel foyers, conference rooms and office partitioning.


All over Canada offices and commercial buildings are dramatically increasing the use of internal glass walls as partitioning. This brings natural light into offices, creating greater work productivity, as well as the illusion of more space while offering privacy.


Residential applications include solariums, bathrooms, entry doors and sidelights, etc.
