Window Film in Schools
Why Protect Your Windows?
You may have the latest and greatest security systems installed on your campus, but you might be missing one spot: your windows. While windows allow for plenty of natural light, they’re the easiest way for an intruder to enter your building.
3M security window film deters intruders from gaining access into a building. Security window film’s tear resistant properties make it extremely difficult to break through the glass and create a body-sized hole. This film will hold the glass fragments in place if they should be broken. In addition to the film, we install an Impact Protection Attachment System that anchors the film to the frame of the window or door. Safety & security window film with an Impact Protection Attachment System can grant up to two minutes for occupants and first responders to react to the situation.
Window Film: Saving Lives on 9/11
Our lives were changed forever on 9/11. As we continue to fight the battle against terrorism, we can take precautionary measures to prevent future tragedies from happening.
During the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, security window film was credited with saving hundreds of lives. Safety films for windows like these, otherwise known as Fragment Retention Film, offer ideal protection during emergencies like terrorist attacks. Glass located near an explosion may implode at high velocities in tiny shards, acting as daggers, and prove fatal to building occupants. In fact, this is the second highest cause of death in a terrorist attack.
