Many schools, offices, and government buildings are exposed to intruders that can easily penetrate tempered glass, which is common in standard entryways and first-floor windows. With recent school shootings grabbing national attention, employing active shooter mitigation measures has become a top priority. To help prevent such awful events, many school districts, colleges, and office buildings are integrating active shooter mitigation safety products, like Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Films or BulletShield™, an advanced security glazing solution that makes glass impenetrable.

Active Shooter Mitigation
Active Shooter Mitigation Safety Products
Active shooter mitigation or active shooter window film is a highly-effective solution for vulnerable exposed glass. We install products like DefenseLite and BulletShield to help hold glass in place in event of forced entry. These products act as a deterrent by helping deny immediate entry and possibly mitigating the threat altogether. In these precious few minutes, lockdown systems and shooter mitigation protocols can be put into effect and first responders have extra time to intervene.
Since 1992, Window Film Depot has installed safety and security window film on office buildings, retail storefronts, schools, and other buildings subject to intrusions and threats. Specializing in security film products from 3M, Window Film Depot can install films that bond to existing glass and also offer UV resistance and sun blocking capabilities.

Each BulletShield polycarbonate panel was over 200 pounds and required precise installation fit into the existing glazing frames.
Active shooter threats have created a new problem requiring technologies that help “keep the bad guy outside” without making the school look like a fortified prison.
Custom made DefenseLite panels are architectural grade polycarbonate ‘clear shields’ that install onto or over your existing window and door frames creating a ‘forcefield’ of protection.
