    We just completed a whole house remodel, including all doors and windows. All of the glass is laminated. To test it, one manufacturer offered us a demo, a 2' x 2' window to be destroyed for the camera. With a 4' crowbar, it took a pretty tough guy 41 seconds to make a hole big enough to toss a (nearby) basketball through. And the hole was surrounded by glass shards ready to shred flesh. I figure that it would take about 2 - 3x as long to clean out the glass enough for anyone to want to climb through it. But that's LAMINATED glass. That added about $12K extra to our windows/doors for the house but the deterrent factor is excellent. We might get a window broken but we won't likely have anyone enter. Of course, door jambs, door locks, lighting, security cameras, alarm, etc. all add up to a hardened house that doesn't look at all like a jail. I think it's better to deter a crime.

    Search YouTube for "Ace Security film". There a a bunch of videos for it, some where they fire rifle rounds in to windows. Looks like impressive stuff.

    Make sure she's packing some pepper spray...a good dose and they would have left the room in a hurry. Chances are they cased the place and knew she was "gone" and just dumb luck, she came back on them. Lots of break-ins occur in broad daylight more than night. If she's that worried and it's a small apartment, consider installing some security bars on the inside with bolts through the wall. A heavy window shade that the bottom is attached to a cs teargas grenade and a wired to the floor with a screw in bolt, tight so that if the screen is rattled, the pin falls out...should deter anyone, although there might be a little clean-up and ventilation needed, they will not venture into the area.

    Hummm. Guy trying to bust thru a door on a public street and the reflections of cars drive right by and no one stops?

    Any preventive measure should only be considered a "deterrent." Someone wants in--they'll get in.

    I have films on all our windows that could be breached from the outside. I count on it to slow down a perp and require him to make much noise. This will give time and warning he is there. It in no way makes your windows impenetrable.
