English translation:Transmission Inhibiting Film (Solar control film)
Explanation:
This is a partially transmitting plastic film attached to the glass of the windows to reduce the solar gain and glare. It is usually silver grey in colour, but can be blue or orange. I hope that this is what you need. Iain

smash -resistant [plastic] sheet


Explanation:
e.g., in laminated safety glass: >>Durchwurfhemmende Verglasung: Sämtliche Verglasungen sind gegen Aufpreis lt. Preisliste auch in durchwurfhemmender Ausführung möglich: Klasse A3 nach DIN 52290. Aufbau: außen Verbundsicherheitsglas, innen Ornamentglas mit Ornamentierung in den Scheibenzwischenraum. Beim Verbundsicherheitsglas sind zwei oder mehrere übereinanderliegende Floatscheiben durch eine oder mehrere hochelastische Zwischenschichten (Folien) fest miteinander verbunden. Die zäh-elastische Folie erschwert zusätzlich das Durchdringen des gesamten Glaselementes.<<
AltaVista word count: durchwurfhemmender: 4; durchwurfhemmendes: 14; durchwurfhemmend: 27; durchwurfhemmende: 36
>>LAMINATED GLASS is made by a vinyl or plastic interlayer
sandwiched between two layers of glass. This type of glass adds
additional strength to your windows. To gain entry, a burglar
would have to strike the glass repeatedly in the same spot in
order to make a small opening. Most burglars are reluctant to
create this type of noise for fear of being detected.<< (etc.)

(amendment) ...with embedded wires (or wire mesh)


Explanation:
in reading your context it appears that the plastic has embedded wires (mesh?) to sound an alarm if broken.
