Window safety and security film
In today’s world, crime, vandalism, terrorism, natural disasters and everyday accidents are real concerns. Made with thick, heavy-duty polyester bonded by strong adhesives, LLumar safety and security films provide an optically clear yet powerful barrier that helps hold glass in place should an impact occur. Danger from windborne debris, seismic tremors, and accidental impact can be greatly reduced. LLumar is also ideal for use in high-traffic areas with windows or other surfaces vulnerable to “smash-and-grab” theft or vandalism.
From corporate and retail to hospitality and educational applications, LLumar’s high-performance films can help you control or even eliminate the danger and damage caused by broken glass in new construction and retrofit projects. Strong, clear LLumar safety and security films offer a broad range of solar and aesthetic solutions to compliment the demands of any commercial project.
Designer window film for privacy and decoration
LLumar will help you add privacy to private spaces while making a bold design statement. You can replicate the premium look of sandblasted glass, create unique patterns, add color, or intricate layered designs – all without sacrificing natural light or aesthetics. It’s the perfect balance between function and style, making it ideal for almost any application. From residential to commercial, retail to hospitality, the possibilities are endless.
A fraction of the cost of designed or etched glass, LLumar designer window film can be cut to virtually any design, and is often installed in less than a day. It is virtually maintenance free, resists fingerprints, and can be cleaned as you would any other window. And as business needs or design tastes change, LLumar can be easily replaced.
Sacrificial anti-graffiti window film
Many cities in the world are experiencing the growing problem of vandals tagging glass and other surfaces in public places using mechanical etching tools, acid, and paint.
LLumar anti-graffiti window film, also known as LLumar sacrificial film, is now the front-running solution to cost-effectively mitigate damage. These specially designed films, nearly invisible once installed, provide a removable, sacrificial surface that can reduce or eliminate the need for expensive glass replacement. A single replacement of just one window can easily exceed ten or twenty times the cost of film installation.
Whether they are applied to vertical or sloped glass, or mirrors or stainless steel, in malls, on buses, in office buildings or on subways, installation and replacement by professionally trained staff is quick and easy, avoiding the disruption caused by window replacement. When vandals strike the film is simply removed along with the tags, revealing the unspoiled glass surface ready for the replacement sacrificial film.
