UV Window Film and Security

Stop Theft. Stop Vandalism.

Only a small percentage of stolen art is ever recovered with estimates at 5 to 10% of it being recovered. The FBI has estimated (in 2005) that the value of art stolen each year averages at a whopping 4.5 billion pounds worth and vandalism of art causes the need for costly restoration. GP Systems' high performance security window film and edge retention systems are a tried and tested means of preventing forced access to property and the subsequent damages and losses available to increase your facilities security and privacy options such as window film and blinds can prevent attempts at theft or vandalism.

Security Window Film and Edge Retention (click for more)Security window film acts as a barrier to entry via windows.

GP Systems security window film is a clear, tinted or opaque material secured to the internal face of the window via an adhesive. Should the window be attacked the material will hold the glass together so that the window remains a barrier to forced entry. The addition of an edge retention system increases window security further still by locking the window pane and/or the frame in place ensuring that in the case of repeated attack the window pane and/or frame does not fall out.

Daylight Privacy Window Films and 24/7 Privacy Blinds

UV window film can be combined with daylight privacy film to suit your security needs. GP UV and Daylight Privacy Films prevent would be intruders seeing into your building through the windows during the day concealing valuables that otherwise would make attractive targets for theft or vandalism or helping to keep the private confidential.

For during the night when daytime window films no longer function effectively GP Systems offers a range of blinds that can be used to obscure view through the window. GP Systems' blinds are attractive and versatile and can be used to alter indoor lighting conditions during the day in addition to providing privacy.

Case Studies

Windows have frequently been chosen by thieves and vandals as a means of forced entry due to their normally easy to break properties. For example in May 2010 5 pieces of art valued at near 80 million pounds were stolen from the French Musee D'art Modern de la Ville de Paris (museum of modern art. Paris) by a single man who gained access via smashing a window. The art is yet to be recovered.

Appropriate measures taken with glass have on the other hand protected items. The Mona Lisa has twice been saved from damage by appropriately treated glass. The first time from attack via spray paint and the second from thrown objects.
