Shutter Shack's Security Film is an important tool in the securing of your home.

A broken window is both an open invitation and a sign to intruders that other entry points may be just as neglected. Apply Security Film to make your glass shatterproof; tinted film can further prevent thieves from window-shopping and even block out UV rays so furniture won't be damaged by the sun.


In the event a burglar breaks your window, Shutter Shack's Security Film will hold the majority of broken glass fragments together, and will continue to resist penetration from wind, rain, and intruders.
