Many people learn best by example. To understand how window film can enhance security in educational settings, it’s essential to look at case studies of real-life applications. The school security case study below is an excellent example of how window film can be used to protect students in Dallas and all over the country.

3M School Security Window Film Case Study Situation

Making schools safe from active shooters has become a top priority for educators across the United States. Glass windows and doors are often the weakest points of security in a building, so it is important to reinforce them before anything else. Unfortunately, Jewish organizations need to be especially vigilant when it comes to security threats. This is why a former FBI agent and security consultant advised Jewish schools in Cincinnati to seek out window film solutions to protect against gun and bomb attacks.

After examining different security options, the Jewish Schools decided that window film was their best choice. They went with 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film because it was both a cost-effective and holistic solution. An impact-resistant window film system, including a specialty adhesive to hold broken glass together in case of a bullet hit, was then installed in a local Jewish school. This type of 3M system also makes it extremely difficult for anyone to break into the school through a window.

The results of the new film installment were praiseworthy. The school stated that they love how unnoticeable the film is; potential threats would have no idea it was present. In addition to being practically invisible, the film also turned out to be a cost-effective solution for securing glass windows and doors in the building. Now, students and staff can feel safer knowing their school took extra measures against gun violence.
