Begin here to build the school safety plan checklist for your school

The Sandy Hook and Nashville school shooters quickly gained access to the schools.
Schools employ various strategies and measures to ensure the safety and well-being of students.

  • Security Personnel: Many schools have security personnel, such as resource officers or security guards, who are trained to monitor and respond to safety concerns.
  • Controlled Access: Schools often implement controlled access systems, such as locked doors and entry points equipped with intercoms or buzzers.
  • Emergency Planning: Schools develop comprehensive emergency plans that outline protocols for different scenarios, including natural disasters, intruders, or medical emergencies.
  • Surveillance Systems: Many schools employ surveillance cameras strategically placed throughout the campus to monitor activities and deter potential threats.
  • Safety Education and Training: Schools educate students, teachers, and staff about safety measures, emergency procedures, and potential risks.

Even when precautions are taken, shooters can break in to a school by shattering entryway glass with bullets – which is why window glass has been labeled as one of the weakest points of attack.

Why choose safety and security window film?

Safety and security window film offers several benefits that make it a worthwhile choice for enhancing the safety of buildings and occupants.

  • Shatter Resistance: Safety and security window film is designed to hold shattered glass together upon impact.
  • Forced Entry Deterrence: Security window film reinforces the strength of windows, making it more difficult for unauthorized individuals to break through. It acts as an additional barrier.

Important questions to address in your school safety plan checklist

How much protection does my school’s glass require?

Schools can harden their security with 3M Ultra series safety films that offer:

Is TEAR-RESISTANCE an important characteristic in safety and security window film?

Tear-resistance is an important characteristic that contributes to the effectiveness of safety and security window film. Tear-resistance refers to the film’s ability to resist tearing or puncturing when subjected to force.

What does GLASS ADHESION refer to in safety and security window film?

Glass adhesion, in the context of window film, refers to the strength and quality of the bond between the film and the glass surface. It measures how well the film adheres to the glass once it is installed.

What are window film frame ANCHORING SYSTEMS?

Window film frame-anchoring systems are specialized components or techniques used in conjunction with window film installations to enhance the integrity and security of the film and its attachment to the window frame.

How much lead time will it take to secure my school with safety and security window film?

The lead time required to secure a school with window film can vary depending on several factors, including the size and complexity of the project, the availability of materials, and our schedule.
