EVERY SECOND COUNTS – PROTECT WHAT MATTERS
After the horrible tragedy that took place in Newtown, CT in 2012 and in Parkland, FL in 2018, schools have begun to initiate aggressive security procedures in an around their buildings. In most of these school shooting tragedies, the shooter gained access into the building simply by shooting through a glass window.
MAKING ORDINARY GLASS EXTRAORDINARY
3M Safety & Security Window Films can greatly reduce the risk of a shoot and breach event. While window film is not “bullet proof” (no window film can achieve this alone), it is bullet resistant in the sense that it will not fall to the ground after being shot once or even several times.
The film will hold shattered glass in place making it very difficult for an intruder to physically penetrate the film membrane. The film and glass are bonded to the frame with a special blast impact gasket, essentially making the window and film as strong as the frame that surrounds it.
This security system gives students critical time needed to get to safety while first responders arrive to the site before entry occurs. 3M Safety & Security Window Films are a fraction of the cost of bullet proof glass and frame replacements. 3M films protect students and staff by making ordinary glass extraordinary at affordable prices.
Since the Newtown shooting, Superintendent, Janet Robinson, has advocated for the installation of security window film. Janet has publicly acknowledged the Sandy Hook shooter breached the
school by shooting through a window, and that a window laminate on the glass may have delayed or prevented his access.
3M recommends the use of its ULTRA S800 or S600 window film with the Impact Protection Adhesive (IPA) attachment system.
