Security for a Private School
Ensuring the safety and security of students and staff members is a top priority for any educational facility. In today’s world, the need for improved school security measures has become increasingly vital. Small private schools have recognized the importance of investing in advanced security solutions. Strong Glass, a leading security and decorative film solutions provider, recently partnered with a small private school to install Security Film and Decorative Film, significantly enhancing the school’s security while adding privacy to their front windows.
Securing Schools in the Modern Age
With the rise of security concerns in educational settings, schools seek innovative ways to protect their students, faculty, and assets. While necessary, traditional security measures such as locks and alarms may only sometimes suffice. This small private school recognized the need for a comprehensive security upgrade to deter and delay potential threats due to its large, venerable windows looking out onto the street.
The Solution: Security Film
Strong Glass, a trusted name in security film installations, offered a solution perfectly aligned with the school’s goals. They proposed installing security film and wet glaze attachment system, a cutting-edge product designed to fortify glass surfaces, making them resistant to forced entry and break-ins. This transparent film adheres to existing glass and can significantly delay intrusion attempts, allowing time for the authorities to respond.
Critical Benefits of 3M Security Film:
- Enhanced Security: The primary function of 3M Security Film is to reinforce glass, making it more difficult for intruders to penetrate. It acts as a deterrent, discouraging potential threats.
- Quick Installation: Strong Glass’s expert team ensures a swift and hassle-free installation process, minimizing disruptions to the school’s daily operations.
- Cost-Effective: Compared to other security measures like replacing glass or installing reinforced doors, Security Film offers a cost-effective solution.
- Impact attachment system: A thick bead of caulk is applied around the window to hold the pane in place if an intruder strikes it, keeping them out longer than a window/entrance without the attachment system.
Enhancing Privacy and Security with Decorative Film:
In addition to the security film, the small private school wanted to obstruct the view from the street to keep passersby from being able to see the children. Visibility is a vulnerability that school officials often overlook in schools. Strong Glass also recommended the installation of Frosted Film, a versatile product that offers a wide range of design options; this allowed the school to block out the view from the street. With this film, they could make the windows look frosted for a fraction of the cost of buying a frosted window.
This small private school proactively protected its students and staff in an era where school security is paramount. The partnership between Strong Glass and this particular school demonstrates the effectiveness of Security Film and Decorative Film in enhancing security while adding aesthetic appeal. By investing in these innovative solutions, schools can balance safety and aesthetics, creating an inviting atmosphere that promotes learning and peace of mind.
