3M SAFETY & SECURITY WINDOW FILMS HELP DETER UNWANTED ENTRY
You have built security fences and gates to restrict access. Installed surveillance cameras to monitor classrooms and hallways. And trained staff how to respond in the event of a safety emergency. But have you taken the steps needed to secure the weakest part of your building – its unprotected glass doors and windows? As the tragic events of Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech and Columbine proved, sometimes the little things can have the gravest consequences. At Sandy Hook, for example, the shooter entered the school not through a main entrance but through a glass window that he shot out. 3M Safety & Security Window Films, like 3M Scotchguard Ultra S800, and our 3M Impact Protection Profile Attachment System are designed to resist such impact and to provide protection from explosions and weather-related emergencies as well. And while no window film can fully prevent unwanted entry, 3M Safety & Security Window Films can give police and other first responders precious extra time to respond in the event of an emergency. In situations where every minute counts, such extra time can mean the difference between life and death.
Why 3M Safety & Security Window Films?
3M Safety & Security Window Films are made from a highly specialized tear resistant micro-layered polyester that includes a special adhesive designed to hold broken glass together and prevent shattering.
3M Safety & Security Window Films provide a nearly invisible layer of protection that is a cost-effective alternative to window replacement and can be installed with minimal interruption to building operations.
3M Safety & Security Window Films are the leader in the industry and are used by hundreds of schools, and specified by numerous states, around the country. Recently, SSI Guardian, a company that specializes in school safety products, added 3M Window Films to its list of 21st Century School Safety Solutions.
“3M is a true leader in research and development which gave SSI Guardian confidence that their products are among the best available to deploy into classrooms across the United States.”
THE PROBLEM: The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati wanted to be sure it was protecting its students from active shooter events, bomb threats and potential hate crime attacks. It brought in retired FBI agent, Mark Dowd, to advise on its security plans. One of his first suggestions: Invest in 3M Window Film.
THE SOLUTION: 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film Ultra S800 and 3M™ Impact Protection Profile Attachment System allowed the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati to add an extra layer of protection for its students that potential attackers would be unable to detect.
