Few tragedies can be compared to the recent incident that occured in Parkland (less than one hour away from Miami). This unfortunate event has raised an awareness of the importance of school safety, and all the various measures that schools must take to keep staff and students safe.

Making sure your school is secure in all aspects is so important. If your situation is like many schools in Florida and you have concerns about the security of your school building, you may want to consider safety and security window film. Safety and security window film can help protect your Miami school from incidences like the one that occurred in Parkland. Here’s how.


How Window Film Can Help Protect Students and Staff During Emergencies

For many people, window film is the last thing they think of when considering security options. For this reason, many schools turn to expensive equipment or structural changes like metal bars. But in actuality, window film is just as effective as these measures, if not more.

Security window films are much different than regular car tint. They’re actually designed to alter the molecular composition of glass. Upon installation, the film bonds directly to the glass. The window film primer penetrates the pores of the glass itself, and rewires its molecular fibers to make them stronger and more effective at resistant shattering.

Several studies have been conducted that have proven window film to be very effective in enhancing school security. Products like C-Bond are now proving that window film actually has the power to make glass ballistic resistant. In the event of an active shooter at campus, this can be an incredibly powerful tool to have.


Additional Benefits of Installing Window Film in Schools

Another great thing about security window film is that it can be beneficial for Miami schools in more ways than one. Many security window films operate dually as decorative and energy efficient window tint. Here are just some of the many advantages schools can have with window tinting:

  • Reduces energy costs by up to 30% each year
  • Saves money on artificial lighting in hallways and classrooms
  • Eliminates distracting glare on computers, tablets, and laptops
  • Reduces energy waste and improves sustainability
  • Blocks out uv rays that cause fading and health disease
  • Make Your School More Secure
