Convenience group partners with the Toronto Police service to host crime prevention symposium.

On April 26th members of 3M, Convenience Group and the 53 division of the Toronto police put together a community crime prevention information session at the Thorncliffe Banquet Centre.

We were brought in to show the community how well our 3M security films protect your home glazing against attempted break ins. By wheeling in our trusty “Smash Display” we proceeded to find the largest officer in the room and invite him up to take our baseball bat and see if he was able to break through our display consisting of a single pane of glass laminated with our security film.


The result??Officer vs. Security film

3M/Convenience Group = 1

Officer = 0

Here is a video of a test blast that 3M put together.  This window has been protected with our 3M Ultra 600 safety film.  The window is then anchored to the frame using structual caulking adhesive.  Wait till you see the video of the same blast without our saftey film on the window!

Each year in North America 1 Billion birds collide with man made structures.

Convenience Group has done it’s part in helping reduce the number of bird collisions each year!  We have now launched in an effort to do just that.

With condo’s and skyscrapers going up by the second in our great city of Toronto it has greatly increased the risk on our feathered friends of colliding into glass.

Feather Friendly film is a pattern in which birds can detect and steer clear from while not tarnishing the look of the building by sticking owl and bird silhouettes all over the glass (which don’t work anyways)

Everyone loves having windows and the wonderful views and light that they allow us to enjoy.  Unfortunately along with sunlight comes the harmful ultra violet rays and uncomfortable added heat which can lead to fading and unbearable hot spots. Another thing to consider is the impact of storms or an attempted break in on your windows, which happen to be the most vulnerable spots on your home.

With the great research and development power of 3M we are able to offer window films that not only allow you to enjoy your scenic view but also protect you at the same time.

3M™ Sun Control Window Films allow you to let the light in and keep the heat and damage out. Best of all you can get these great benefits without changing the appearance of your home.

With 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films your windows can be transformed from your weakest link to a source of strength, helping to protect your home and your family from threats such as break-ins and severe weather events like hurricanes. 3M Safety and Security Window Films are designed to help hold the glass fragments together, reducing potential injury from flying glass during severe weather. Because these films help hold the glass together, a stronger barrier is created, slowing down criminals to the point where they may choose to flee for an easier target. 3M Safety and Security Window Films are available in clear, safety-only versions, or as a combination film with both sun control & safety features.

Please contact us if you have any questions about either our Sun Control or our Safety/Security lines of window films.
