Safety & Security Film for Schools
Protecting Schools with 3M Security Film
After the horrible tragedy that took place in Newtown, CT in December 2012 and in Parkland, FL in February 2018, administrators are forced to rethink school security. At Sandy Hook Elementary School, the shooter gained access into the building simply by shooting through a glass window.
3M Safety & Security Window Films can help prevent entry from ever happening. While window film will not stop a bullet (no window film will on its own, no matter what you read), it will help to hold shattered glass in place to effectively slow down an intruder, giving students critical time to get to safety and security personnel to respond before entry occurs.
The installation of 3M Safety & Security Window Films to exterior and interior school windows can be an effective and inexpensive way to keep your students and staff safe from bad actors.
Benefits of Safety Films
Safety & Security Window Films provide a protective barrier between the interior of your building and exterior threats such as storms, natural disasters, forced entry, or even terrorist attacks. These films, available in a variety of thicknesses and VLTs, are designed to hold window glass fragments together, reducing potential injury and/or damage from flying shards of glass. The benefits of installing safety window films include:
- Bomb blast mitigation
- Acts as a hindrance to attempted break-ins or forced entry
- Natural disaster mitigation; may reduce damage from earthquakes, high winds, or violent storms
We carry a variety of state-of-the-art films, enabling you to select the one that best addresses your unique requirements. Protect your school from exterior threats with Safety & Security Film.
We install Safety & Security Window Films in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC. Our main office is based in Southern Maryland.
Security Window Film In Action
Safety & Security Window Films have been tested and proven by independent researchers and consumer safety groups worldwide. Because it’s thicker than standard window film, Safety & Security Films make glass stronger and more resistant to breakage. They are capable of withstanding blows that would shatter untreated glass, deterring would-be intruders by preventing them from gaining entry. Watch the video for a demonstration.
