New Innovative XPEL Window Films Help Save Birds and Enhance Security

Window film technology is continuously evolving, and XPEL is at the heart of developing new variants for specific needs evolving security, privacy, and safety. XPEL recently launched four new variants to its extensive catalog of VISION architectural window films at this year's XPEL Dealer Conference. These specialty products provide a solution to improve security, enhance visual aesthetics with better versatility, or save birds from potential injury:

  • • Bird Safe Dotted Film
  • • Exterior Security Clear 7 mil
  • • Dusted Crystal Film
  • • Blister Prevention Film

Bird Safe Dotted Film, Environmentally Conscious Window Film

Every year, millions of birds find themselves crashing headfirst into glass windows. According to the American Bird Conservancy, the estimated number of bird fatalities caused by glass collisions ranges between 365 million to one billion.

Bird collisions happen when a glass window reflects a surface that confuses birds into thinking there’s sky or vegetation and then violently stopped by a solid surface. These impacts can often lead to fatal consequences. XPEL’s Bird Safe Dotted Window Film aims to tackle this problem head-on.

This bird safe architectural window film features a decorative dotted pattern with an exterior hard coat. The pattern is designed to aid birds to recognize the surface and avoid collisions. Plus, it protects windows from damage caused by our feathered friends crashing into a window.

Key Benefits:
  • • Features an Exterior Hard Coat with a Dotted Pattern.
  • • Helps Prevent Bird Strikes by making the glass visible to birds.
  • • Decorative Dotted Pattern helps birds recognize windows and avoid collisions.

Exterior Security Clear 7 mil Film Reinforces Your Safety

This robust 7 mil safety film complements the existing use of interior security film. It works by holding the exterior pane together during impacts. It creates dual protection when applied to the exterior of windows fitted with XPELinterior security film .

This enhanced exterior protection reinforces safety, protecting against hail and wind damage and slowing down intruder breaches. Security Clear 7 mil window film supports school safety measures to protect against exterior breaches.

Key Benefits:
  • • Dual Sided Protection for Single & Double Pane Glass
  • • Increased Impact Resistance

Blister Prevention Film, Expanding the Versatility of Window Films

Blister Prevention Film is a game changer. The architectural film's versatility allows it to protect polycarbonate and acrylic. It's ideal for protecting your watercraft, specialty vehicles, and building skylights that use acrylic or polycarbonate as a glazing material without the risk of outgassing.

Outgassing can occur if a window film is applied directly on a plastic surface. Blister Prevention Film is designed to be applied on the acrylic and polycarbonate surface before any window film to prevent outgassing. Enjoy the benefits of VISION window films on surfaces other than glass with this specialty architectural film.

Key Benefits:
  • • Designed to Help Prevent Outgassing
  • • Ideal for Acrylic or Polycarbonate Surfaces
