3M™ Safety Series S40

Shatter protective sun-control film

3M™ Safety Film S40 is designed for use on the interior surface of windows. It is composed of a transparent and weather stable polyester film, feauring a scratch resistant surface and a strong acrylic adhesive.

The film's high tensile strength and elongation at break increases resistance of the glazing system to impact and pressure. The film also significantly reduces the transmission of UVA and UVB rays which are the main cause of fading.

3M™ Safety Films provide an effective protection from injuries to persons or damage to items caused by the fragments of broken glass. In the case of glass breakage the fragments are held together by the strong acrylic adhesive.

3M™ Safety Film S40 has been tested and approved according to EN 12600 (Pendulum test). It is classed as 2B2 on 6 mm float glass and 3B3 on 3 mm float glass.  

  • Increases protection from flying or broken glass.
  • Deters smash and grab burglaries.
  • Reduces fading from UV light.
  • Helps preserve the appearance of furniture and fabrics.
  • Has an abrasion resistant surface to maintain a good appearance for longer.
