You are probably not thinking much about the upcoming school year right now because summer in The Bay Area is in full swing.  But it will be here sooner than you think so it really isn’t too early to start thinking about the next school year. For school administrators, now is an especially good time to start implementing upgrades while the kids are gone.  One perfect improvement for San Francisco schools to do when on break is safety and security window film. This is because this type of window film usually involves specialty frames and takes longer to install. So when the buildings are mostly empty–it simply works better for everyone. Safety and security window film is a ballistics resistant solution making it a critical component in a day and age when school shootings are on the rise.  Read below to find out a little bit more about these films and why they are a good thing for your school to use to prevent tragedy.

 3 Major Benefits Of Safety And Security Window Film

  1.  Safety And Security Film Retains Glass Fragments: Safety and security films are one of the most powerful ways to mitigate damage from flying glass.  They keep shards of potentially deadly broken glass shards in place after a bullet or high-velocity strike. This means glass will not fly around and injure people nearby.  So those who are close to the danger, stay unhurt and are better able to run away and escape.    
  2. Safety And Security Films Protects The Points Of Entry: On any building, the weakest point of security is the glass windows and doors.  Safety and Security Window Film then becomes your first line of defense on these vulnerable spots. By installing safety and security window film to these areas you fortify them. This will protect you not only from a potential school shooter but also theft from breaking and entering too.
  3.  Safety And Security Films Gives Students And Staff More Time: Any window, given enough time and effort from an attacker will give way when repeatedly struck.  However, safety and security films will slow down a would-be attacker. While the goal is to deter the assailant completely–even buying some time saves lives. In the time it takes for an intruder to penetrate the glass, students and staff will have a better chance to hide or escape.  It also gives first responders time to arrive before the attacker even gets through the door.
