Why does every school need
3M™ Safety & Security Window Film ?
Keeping students, staff and faculty safe from intruders is a modern-day challenge that many school districts are currently tackling. While camera systems, security guards and drills are excellent strategies, peace of mind can often come from passive security measures, protection that works 24/7, never tires, and maintains the same shielding year after year. And we know that in any school perimeter, the weak point is glass, which can easily be shot through to create an opening. This is where 3M™ Safety & Security Film comes in.
3M™ Safety & Security Window Film is a multi-layer polyester film produced with a strong 3M™ adhesive. When applied to a window along with the Impact Profile, it creates an additional layer of protection that can help to hold the glass in place if it breaks or shatters. This prevents a window or a glass door from becoming an easy opening in an active shooter emergency. This can also reduce the risk of injury from flying shards of glass.
It is applied to the interior or exterior of windows in buildings to enhance their security and safety. It is designed to be strong and durable, It is typically minimally disruptive to install and requires minimal maintenance. In schools, 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film can offer a range of benefits to improve the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff.
One of the main benefits of 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film for schools is its ability to passively enhance the security of windows and glass doors. With a professional installation, it is hard to even tell it is there. This security measure does not need to be turned on and it is virtually invisible. It can also provide protection against extreme weather conditions, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, which can cause windows to break or shatter.
If installed as a tinted option, another benefit is the added privacy it provides. In schools, it can be used to provide privacy without sacrificing natural light, particularly in classrooms or other areas where privacy may be a concern. This can create a more comfortable and secure learning environment for students.
Another benefit of 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film for schools is that it can improve the energy efficiency of a building. By reducing the amount of heat and glare that enters the building through windows, 3M™ Window Film can help to keep the interior temperature more stable and comfortable. This can result in lower energy costs for heating and cooling, as well as improved indoor air quality.
