Four Benefits of Security Glazing Tape

Security glazing tape, or security glass tape, is one of the many products that we manufacture here at Adhere Industrial Tapes Ltd and can be an excellent investment for your business. Designed to reduce the risk of burglaries, security glazing tape is often placed between the glass and the window frame.

When considering the advantages of security glazing tape, there are a few that might be more immediately obvious than others. That’s why it’s worth exploring some of the benefits that come from using this type of tape when manufacturing or offering services to your customers. Here are four benefits of using security glass tape. 

Strong adhesive

Security glazing tape is made of a PVC foam with a high performance solvent acrylic adhesive. This adhesive is extremely strong and enables glazing to be bonded tightly and securely to the frame of a window. This prevents anyone from removing the glazing externally without proper authorisation.

Boasting excellent sealing and dampening capabilities, security glass tape is also excellent at absorbing heavy vibration, making sure that your joints remain permanently secure even when faced with demanding applications.

Available in a variety of widths and thicknesses

Security glazing tape comes in a wide variety of widths and thicknesses, enabling it to protect various specifications of window from unauthorised glass removal. Here at Adhere, we can produce a range of double sided foam tapes ranging from 0.8mm to 12mm, making this type of tape suitable for almost any size of window. Any decent tape manufacturer can also vary the density of the foam, offering different levels of seal from air, water or dust in order to handle demanding applications.

Suitability for different surfaces

The construction of the foam on security glazing tape provides it with excellent conformability. That makes it ideal for rough, uneven and structured surfaces that can be difficult to protect, even at low temperatures. The list of surfaces can include materials as difficult and dissimilar as metals, wood timber, UPVC and many plastics.

Cost-effective and easy to install

One of the most distinctive advantages of security glazing tape is that it ensures water tightness and draught-proofing between the glass and the window frame. As it prevents drafts and moisture from entering a building, it can also save on heating costs – a benefit that can come in handy compared to more expensive solutions. That makes the use of glazing tape for general glazing an excellent, cost-effective, and energy efficient option.
