Solar Art installed 3M security film to a school in Bellevue, Washington! School safety has always been priority number one, but unfortunately, with the recent events, taking extra safety precautions is more important than ever before. This school already has a security system in place but was looking to take added precautions. They did some research on what other security measures they could implement in their school to ensure their students safety, and they came across window security film. They reached out to Solar Art to learn more. Our sales representative met with the customer to educate them on window security film and the benefits it can offer!
Window security film helps protect against not only intruders, but natural disasters as well. As the most common points of entry are windows, the customer decided to have 3M security film installed throughout the entire school to all glass facing outside. While 3M security window film won’t prevent someone from completely breaking through, it can strengthen the glass by 2-3 times and prolong forced entry time. This will add extra time for law enforcement to arrive. If installed with a security attachment system, there will be increased protection in the case of break-ins, earthquakes and bomb blasts. Window security film comes in a variety of thicknesses ranging from 4 mil-14 mil. The thicker the security film, the more difficult it is to get through. Window security film also comes in different colors. This customer chose a clear 3M security window film where intruders won’t even know it’s there. The aesthetics of the building won’t be affected at all. There is also a reflective security window film option. This will look like a mirrored window film or one way privacy window film. This option will significantly reduce heat and reduce glare. Regardless of whether you choose a clear or reflective window security film, 99% of harmful UVA and UVB rays will be blocked. The school was really pleased with the outcome of the installation because they were able to add on to their security system for an affordable price. They were able to have peace of mind that their students and faculty were as safe as possible 24/7. 3M security window film is easily removable with no damage to the glass surface. In addition to security window film, Solar Art also services solar film, decorative window film, anti graffiti film, custom graphics and exterior building wraps.
