Benefits of Security Window Films for Schools
Tragically, schools and universities have been subject to shootings and violent attacks in recent years. In turn, reinforcing school safety and security is a top priority for today’s educational facilities. This has made precautionary measures like security window film a beacon amidst a time of urgency. Next to employing trained personnel and other conventional security measures, school window film is one of the best ways to increase the safety and security of students, teachers, and administrative staff at any educational institution.
While clear glass windows allow natural light in, if left untreated, they can be ineffective at keeping intruders out. Window Film Depot provides a number of options to optimize and reinforce one of the weakest point of entry in a school: glass windows and doors. Anti-shatter and active shooter mitigation products from BulletShield, DefenseLite, and 3M can be the best investment an educational facility can make in deterring aggressors from accessing school buildings and classrooms.
In addition to armed aggressors, most schools are subject to damaging weather, such as wind storms, snow storms, hurricanes, and tornadoes. During such occurrences, airborne objects can break untreated glass windows, resulting in dangerous shards traveling at high velocities. One of the major benefits of safety and security window film is its ability to maintain integrity and prevent shattering, thereby protecting students and faculty from flying glass.
Heat & Energy Efficiency Benefits of School Window Film
Beyond safety and security against human and natural causes, window films for schools can offer a host of other advantages, including:
- Reduced Hot Spots: There are few things worse for students and faculty to endure than a 20-30 degree temperature increase from the intense P.M. sun. Sun control window films dramatically reduce the occurrence of such hot spots, providing an optimal environment for productivity, focus, and learning.
- Lower Heating & Cooling Bills: With less hot spots and greater rejection of solar heat, not can window treatments keep the environment consistent, but this also helps lower costly cooling bills. And with products like Low-E window film, schools can also benefit from insulation features that prevent heat from escaping during colder months.
- UV Protection: Sun control films can block up to 99% of the harmful UV rays responsible skin problems as well as fading and discoloration damage to furnishings and upholstery.
- Glare Reduction: Particularly important for schools and educational facilities where productivity and focus are critical, the anti-glare benefits of school window film are major relief during peak hours of the day.
- Temperature Control: Temperature moderation is not only crucial for the comfort of students and staff, but can significantly save on energy consumption.
