how do I secure my windows, so burgulars won't be able to smash the window and get in.

A salesman told me there's a type of window that use two pieces of glass sandwiching a vinyl film. Apparently this will prevent the glass from shattering. The glass will break but the vinyl film will hold it into place.

What are your thoughts on this.

I know barring will work but:
1. it makes the windows look ugly
2. It might be difficult to escape in case of fire.

This type of glass is used in the detention market. It is known as laminated glass and comes in different configurations and thicknesses. I have seen one of these damaged, the guy broke one pane using a chair but was unable to get through the others. As to availability for a residential window, I could not say.

Here is a company that may be able to help you. I could not remember it when I first replied. I have had no dealings with them so I cannot give you specifics. They make a film that is applied to a window to prevent shattering. Looks like they are geared towards commercial applications where they install it but perhaps they can help. 888 306 7998
