Important Factors for Schools to Consider

When considering the implementation of security film solutions, there are crucial factors that schools should keep in mind. By addressing these aspects, you can maximize the effectiveness of your security measures:

Single or Double-Pane Windows

Window type plays a significant role in response time. For single-pane glass, we recommend a double layer of security film to enhance protection.

Side Doors and Points of Entry

Entryway doors are often vulnerable areas. Extend security measures to side doors, back doors, sidelights, and any other potential points of entry.

Interior/Exterior Locking Doors

Ensure both sets of doors, including both interior and exterior doors, are coated with security film. This is especially important for doors with automatic locking mechanisms.

Protection for Front Desk

Prioritize protecting the front desk area, as it serves as a vital location for immediate activation of lockdown measures upon threat identification.
