There are numerous commercial property types that warrant premium security. From public places that house thousands of guests at once to high-security buildings that keep valuables and sensitive information, these properties are found throughout the Dallas area. When it comes to choosing the right safety and security window film, many property owners may wonder which is better: ballistic resistance or bomb blast? These two specialty security films have different advantages and disadvantages.

The Difference Between Bomb Blast and Ballistic Resistant Window Film

Bomb blast and ballistic resistant window film are both specialty security window film systems that require multiple layers of security film, an attachment system, and a glass strengthening agent. Bomb blast window film is designed specifically to better absorb the high impact caused by explosions. Ballistic resistant window film requires a thicker existing glass to be effective, but is designed to better absorb the high impact from gunfire. Ballistic resistant window film is a more costly option than bomb blast but does have the added benefit of being both ballistic resistant and bomb blast protective. If you’re looking for both qualities, you’ll have to pick the ballistic resistant window film. Both options offer premium security but won’t stop a perpetrator¬†from gaining access to your property– it’ll only slow them down.
