To understand the true power of window film helps to look at real-life case studies. This allows you to see how and why window film was used in actual educational situations. The school security window film case study below is an excellent example of its potential to protect our Dallas students.
3M School Security Window Film Case Study Situation
It’s a sad reality that, in today’s world, protecting against active shooters has become a top priority for schools across the US. One of the weakest security points in any building is its glass windows and doors, so it’s important to reinforce them before anything else. Unfortunately, Jewish organizations need to be extra vigilant regarding security threats. This is why a security consultant (and former FBI agent) advised Jewish schools in Cincinnati to seek window film solutions as additional protection against gun and bomb threats.
3M School Security Window Film Case Study Solution
After exploring different ways to improve security, the Jewish Schools chose to install 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film. They decided on this product because it was both cost-effective and appeared to be efficacious. The installed window film system included a specialty adhesive that would hold broken glass together if hit by a bullet. This type of 3M system also made it more difficult for someone to break into the school through a window.

The results were impressive, and the school loved the fact that the film was virtually invisible. By being nearly impossible to see, potential attackers would never know it was there. In addition to its near invisibility, it turned out to be one of the most cost-effective and robust solutions for securing glass windows and doors in any building – not just schools. But students and staff receive the best benefit of all: peace of mind knowing their school is adequately protected against gun violence thanks to this affordable solution.
