Glass surfaces may crack under the influence of a stone or other heavy objects, a cobweb appears on the surface, the glass cracks, but does not fall apart into separate fragments. Even if the glass surface is large and fragile, the film binds pieces of glass and does not allow anyone to get inside.

How long can the glass withstand? It depends on many factors: the efforts and motivation of vandals or rubbers, destination, etc. Please check more detailed information about security window films.
For large windows. How to determine the size?
12 mil (336 microns) film is used to reinforce large windows with an area 1,8 metre and more. For example:
- Width - 1 metre 20 centimetres, height - 1 metre 90 centimetres. Multiply the width by the height. The area of the glass surface is 2,28 square metres. 12 mil (360 microns) film is preferable for this window.
- Width - 2 metres 15 centimetres, height - 95 centimetres. Multiply the width by the height. The area of the glass surface is 2,04 square metres. 8Mil (224 microns) can be ordered for smaller windows, e.g. 1,8 square metre and less.
These calculations are approximate and advisory. A distance, physical efforts, motivation of vandals or rubbers and other factors matter and affect safety.
