Flying glass causes most injuries during a hurricane

3M Europe : 18 June, 2007  (Technical Article)
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says the great majority of injuries during a hurricane are caused by flying glass from broken windows or other debris.(1) With hurricane season fully underway, home and building owners can be even more prepared by using 3M(TM) Ultra Safety and Security Window Film, which helps hold glass in place during destructive weather conditions.
3M Ultra Safety and Security Window Film is a strong, tear resistant and clear window film that improves the durability of windows. The advanced adhesive materials used in constructing the window film help keep shards of glass in place after a window shatters. This helps prevent broken glass from flying throughout the home or building and causing serious bodily injury.

The superior performance of 3M Ultra Safety and Security films is due to its combination of flexibility and toughness. Instead of tearing under acute pressure, the polymer film stretches and expands when faced with situations such as high winds, flying debris, or even bomb blasts. This flexibility helps keep the glass in place after breakage and can help prevent wind, water and debris from entering the home and destroying valuable belongings.

3M has been a world leader in window films for four decades, having received the first patent for window films in 1966. Ultra Safety and Security window film is another example of the technological contributions 3M has made to the industry, leveraging world-class capability in adhesives, multilayer optical films and precision manufacturing. Ultra Safety and Security window films are available exclusively from the 3M window film dealer network.
