3M Safety & Security Window Films help to reduce the risks of flying glass that can cause severe injuries or death during natural disasters and home invasions. Safety films create a protective barrier deterring would be robbers, lengthening the time it takes to break through windows from mere seconds to minutes – minutes that matter.


While home and business invasions are not a guaranteed happening, natural disasters occur every year, and no one is safe from suffering storm damage. Having the protection of security film means if a window breaks, your family is safe from flying shards of glass and other debris entering through your windows.

Thin, clear and barely detectable, Midwest Solar Control’s protective range of safety and security films can stand up to all kinds of rough treatment. Trust them to help safeguard the people and possessions you value most against break-ins, vandalism, accidents, and nature’s dangerous occurrences.


Once installed, safety and security film immediately shields your home against unwelcome surprises. It shields you from worry, too.
Here’s proof that protection doesn’t have to be bulky, heavy or unsightly to be effective:
  • Help Deter Heat: Glass that resists shattering and smashing encourages intruders to move on, instead of forcing their way inside.
  • Shatter Resistance: When film-covered glass is hit hard enough to shatter, individual fragments generally adhere to the film instead of scattering.
  • Accidental Damage: Make glass stronger and safer for high-impact contact with stray softballs, confused birds and more.
  • Wind Debris: Provide a layer of protection that helps to hold fragments in place when glass shatters due the force and debris of dangerous winds.
  • Help Reflect Heat: Reclaim areas of your home that you used to avoid during the heat of the day, thanks to heat-blocking technology.
  • Block UV Rays: Solar films offer significant UV protection, as much as 99%.

Accidents and storms can shatter windows without warning, sending flying shards of glass everywhere. It can result in severe injuries to your family and significant damage to your home. This risk can be dramatically reduced with Midwest Solar Control’s safety and security window films. These films provide a clear and invisible – yet powerful – barrier that helps hold glass in place in the event of an impact. While this barrier helps protect you against the damaging effects of flying shattered glass, it also makes it more difficult for an intruder to smash through your windows quickly.

3M’s safety and security window films meet the toughest industry standards in the United States, so you can trust that you’re using a product that works. And because it is optically clear, you won’t even know it’s there – until something happens.
