The Dallas summer is in full swing right now so the odds are you are probably not thinking much about the upcoming school year.  But it will be here sooner than you think–and probably sneak up on you just like it does every year. Which is why it is almost never too early to start thinking about school starting up.  For Dallas school administrators an upgrade that is great to do when school is on break is safety and security window film. This type of window film usually involves specialty frames so it takes a little longer to install.  For this reason, the kids being gone from the building works better for everyone involved: students, staff and contractors. Furthermore, safety and security window film is a ballistics resistant solution to school security meaning it is a critical component in an era when school shootings are on the rise.  To find out a little bit more about how this technology will keep the kids in our Dallas schools safer in the event of an attack read below.

 3 Major Benefits Of Safety And Security Window Film

  1.  Safety And Security Films Retain Glass Fragments: Safety and security films are fantastic at mitigating damage from flying glass.  They keep shards of dangerous broken glass in place after a bullet strike. Meaning it doesn’t fly around and injure people nearby.  This means those who are close to the danger, stay unscathed and better able to run away and escape.    
  2. Safety And Security Films Protects The Points Of Entry: It is a well-known fact that the weakest point in any buildings security is the glass windows and doors.  Safety and Security Window Film is essentially your first line of defense on these weak spots. By installing these films you shore up the vulnerable spots of your building not only from a potential school shooter but theft by breaking and entering too.
  3.  Safety And Security Films Gives Students And Staff More Time: Given enough time and effort, any window film gives way under attack from a gun or high-velocity strike. However, safety and security films will drastically slow an attacker down.  The goal is to deter the assailant completely. But, even buying time is enough of a benefit. Because in the time it takes for the intruder to penetrate the glass, students and staff will have a better chance to hide or run away.  It also gives first responders more time to get there before the attacker even gets through the door.
