After the horrible tragedy that took place in Newtown, CT in December 2012, school districts are forced to rethink security. The shooter gained access into Sandy Hook Elementary School simply by shooting through a glass window.
3M Safety & Security Window Films can help prevent that from happening. While window film will not stop a bullet (no window film will on its own, no matter what you read), it will help to hold shattered glass in place to slow down an intruder. The installation of 3M Safety & Security Window Films to various school windows can be an effective and inexpensive way to keep your students and staff safe from harm’s way.
Janet Robinson, Newtown school superintendent, has advocated the installation of window film. She said that Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter, gained entry to the school by shooting through a window, and some type of reinforcement to the glass may have delayed his access.
3M is advocating the use of its ULTRA S800 or Safety S140 window film to its Impact Protection Adhesive (IPA) attachment system.
