Perforated print window films

August 8, 2013 / Comments Off on Perforated print window films

Perforated window films give you the ability to print whatever you’d like on the exterior surface of the glass while being able to see through from inside with complete uninterrupted visibility.

We are able to do the back window of a pick up truck, and from inside you would hardly be able to tell that there was anything on your back window at all.

It also works on larger scale projects as we could do the entire face of a building, like Thunder Bay city hall for instance!



Here’s a shot of an install we’ve done locally for a company that is going through a re-branding make over.


3M Textured Surface film

May 31, 2013 / Comments Off on 3M Textured Surface film

Surfaced Textured Films are pressure sensitive two-mil removable graphic films designed with a vinyl material. These films adapt to moderately textured surfaces on both flat and curved substrates when heated and applied. They prevent abrasion and improve removal characteristics than other films. They are available with and without adhesives and with a lay flat polyethylene coated paper liner. They have an excellent chemical resistance to mild alkalis, mild acids and salt. They also have excellent water resistance; however this does not include immersion.

3M Safety Film

April 1, 2013 / Comments Off on 3M Safety Film

3M Safety

The potential threat of shattered or falling glass is always a concern in the school environment.  Whether it be a falling tree from outside, a gymnasium ball gone astray or students horsing around, the threat is always constant.

Shattering the myth of wired glass

Many building and fire officials are mistaken about the impact resistance of wired glass and believe it to be a safety product, in part because the wires give the appearance of increased safety.

The common misconception is that the embedded wires reinforce impact strength, when they do just the opposite.  The wires actually weaken the glass and substantially reduce its impact resistance, so wired glass is in fact only half as strong as ordinary annealed glass.  Wired glass is more dangerous than regular glass when it breaks because the exposed wires are razor sharp and catch a victim’s body part in the opening, and increase the severity of the injury.

Children and young adults are seriously and permanently injured every year as a result of the dangerous use of wired glass vision panels in areas where impact safety glazing is required.  Wired glass is commonly used in hospitals, schools and colleges as an approved fire-protection glazing for fire doors and windows installed in corridors, stairwells, gymnasium walls and other fire-rated areas where accidental human impact is likely.

Human Impact – Accidental glass breakage and Safety film

One of the major causes of injury is human-to-glass impact. For this reason, there is existing legislation that covers the use of safety glazing materials in certain building constructions. This legislation is designed to protect individuals from bodily harm, should they walk into or through the pane of glass. The major cause of injury to the human body when impacting a pane of glass is what is known as the “guillotine effect.” This is where the person walks into or through the pane of glass with great speed. By the time the individual realizes that they have walked into the glass, they are already in a position where they have broken the pane of glass and do not have sufficient time to back-track. As soon as the glass is broken, due to the effect of gravity, it falls and injures the person.

Safety film decreases and virtually eliminates injury from this type of human impact. The glass, while it may be broken or cracked, remains adhered to the film, and in most cases, is still intact in its frame. The tensile strength of the film, coupled with its elasticity and high resistance to shear, greatly removes, if not virtually eliminates, the ability of a person to walk through a pane of glass.

Thrown objects; Baseballs, golf balls and other threats 

Many windows are broken either intentionally or unintentionally by thrown objects. Whether this is a child accidentally throwing a baseball through a window or a smash and grab robbery attempt, the results are the same. The projectile hits the glass with some degree of velocity, breaking the glass inward. This causes large dagger-like shards to fly into the room. Not only does this pose a risk to property, but it also poses a risk to unsuspecting individuals. Whether at home or in the office, people tend to put furniture near windows in order to enjoy the benefits of light, warmth, and view allowed by large windows. In the event of a thrown object, this presents the likelihood of injury.

Forced entry and theft

3M window protection film can help deter street crime, simply because the window film helps hold the glass in place even after the window has been hit with heavy objects. Criminals don’t have the quick access they are looking for to smash and grab. The film’s resistance to tearing also makes breaking and entering very difficult. Often the window film slows them down to such a degree that they choose to move on.

Civil unrest

Window Protection

In this day and age it seems no country, society, culture or building is immune to the threat of terrorism or rioting. For this reason owners and managers of buildings need to be more aware than ever of their responsibilities to building occupants and property particularly during large public, political or sporting meetings and events. There can be little argument that providing a secure environment is at the top of the list. While heightened security cannot always prevent a building from becoming a target, precautionary measures such as 3M window protection film can work to minimize the resulting loss and damage. In the event of civil unrest the installation of 3M window protection film can demonstrate that management exercised due diligence in providing defensive measures to enhance occupant and property protection.
