3M™ Safety and Security Window Film for Schools

  • 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film has been incorporated into thousands of schools. Schools have chosen this solution because:

    • It is more cost effective than replacing all windows and doors with laminated glass
    • It is easily applied, even over existing glazing
    • While it cannot stop intruders from entering school buildings, it does act as a deterrent, providing precious response time by slowing the intruder down

    We recently learned about 3M Window Film for our home, and during the process we were informed that 3M has a Security Window Film and Attachment System that is being used by hundreds of schools across the nation to help deter an intruder from entering the building through the window. The glass on windows and doors of a school can be a vulnerable entry point into the building and replacing the windows with fortified glass is expensive. 3M Security Window Films & Attachment Systems are a cost effective way that to upgrade your windows that can deter an intruder from entering the building for as long as 2 minutes. The link below has a lot of information on how beneficial this product is for schools.


    Please review the information and get back to me on the possibility of using this product to help upgrade the security of the school.
