As summer comes to a close, students and teachers everywhere are preparing to return to school. While the anticipation of a new school year comes with excitement, we cannot help but feel a bit of anxiety regarding school safety these days. After all, with the laundry list of mass shootings that occur, 102 incidents of gunfire on school grounds in 2022 alone, it can be difficult for students and staff to feel comfortable and confident. At school, teachers should be able to focus on providing education and knowledge to students, and students should be able to focus on learning, socializing, and growing. Learn how window film can improve school safety and provide peace of mind to students, families, and faculty members.
Windows are the Weak Link
Because of the fragility of glass windows, an intruder can quickly gain access. A swift strike can send glass flying, causing harm to those inside and allowing an intruder to enter a space. While we certainly can’t predict events like break-ins and natural disasters, we can prepare for them. Enter 3M Safety and Security Window Film.
3M Safety and Security Window Film is applied to windows for added protection. The film acts as an adhesive, holding the glass in place if it’s broken. By holding the glass in place, 3M Safety and Security Window Film can:
- Deter an intruder from entering a space
- Give occupants extra time to react in an emergency
- Minimize the harm caused by flying shards of glass
Not only does 3M Safety and Security Window Film strengthen windows, but it does so without drastically changing the exterior appearance of a space. The virtually invisible layer of protection can provide peace of mind to students and faculty in the event of:
- Bomb blasts
- Inclement weather
- Natural disasters
Students, teachers, and faculty members should feel comfortable doing what they’re at school to do. Children should be able to focus on receiving an education, and teachers should be able to provide that to them comfortably. Increase comfort and peace of mind by preparing your school with 3M Safety and Security Window Film! See how window film improved school safety in this case study.
