Window Film in Schools

Unfortunately, we are all too familiar with the tragic school shootings that occur throughout our country each year. In particular, after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, views on school safety were forever changed. Although police responded to the situation in just two minutes, the shooter was able to gain entry to the school by shooting through the window in the front lobby. According to an FBI report, the average police response time to an active shooter situation is four to six minutes. In these emergencies, when time is critical and minutes make the difference, 3M Safety and Security Window Film can provide those crucial minutes. If glass is shattered, window film holds the broken pieces in place, buying the extra time that is critical to react in the event of an emergency. Schools around the country can apply for grants that provide funding for school safety-related activities and technology such as Safety and Security Window Film.

Why Use Security Window Film for Schools?

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 and contribute to student wellbeing, they’re the easiest way for an intruder to enter your building, making school safety window film a no-brainer.

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, which prevents injuries from glass shards and often deters intruders who find it difficult to break through the barrier.

In addition to the security film itself, 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.
