Professionally Installed Window Film from Energy Solutions Adds Safety and Security to Your School
Schools are supposed to be safe places for students to explore and learn. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Security and alarm systems are excellent ways to manage visitors, intruders, and prevent break-ins – but sometimes thieves and vandals move too fast, and the damage is already done before law enforcement even arrives.
Security glass film protects against severe weather, crime, and vandalism. Although this type of window film can be used on a range of different buildings, including houses, the use of security glass film is particularly beneficial to school buildings.
When we install window film for school security, you’re getting an added layer of protection from trusted products. At Energy Solutions, we’re authorized dealers of 3M™ window film.
Window film may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to security measures, but there are several ways security glass film can be a life-changing added measure for your overall school security system.
Security Glass Film Is Shatter-Resistant
One of the most important elements of security window film is its shatter resistance. Compared to other window tinting solutions, security glass film is made with thicker polyester and adhesive. The thick film is designed to hold the glass shards together when the window is broken, making it difficult for someone to break through the window and get into the building.
Schools can often be targets of “smash and grab” crimes – with so much technology and expensive equipment on the premises, thieves smash a window and grab as much as they can before getting caught. Security glass film in schools slows these criminals down while the alarm system alerts the authorities.
According to 3M™, it takes more than 90 seconds to break through their security glass film Safety Series S140 when installed on a glass door. By the time an intruder gets through the school security window film, help will already be on the way. The film is extremely tear-resistant and can be installed on both the interior and exterior of your windows. It can’t be easily removed by thieves or curious students!
Security Glass Film Protects Against Graffiti
3M™ Anti-Graffiti Film keeps your windows lasting longer and looking better. Whether it’s late-night vandals or artistically-inclined students, this film protects glass from tagging, scratching, or etching. The film’s easy removal makes it simple to replace, and when taken off, you’ll find your windows in the same condition you left them in.
Using these anti-graffiti films alongside security windows in schools makes taking care of school grounds easier and saves money in the long run. Your alarm system may be able to monitor break-ins, but security glass films ensure the authorities have plenty of time to arrive on the scene.
Security Glass Film Is Cost Effective with High Reward
Upgrading alarm and security systems can come with a hefty price tag. Especially with tight school budgets, expensive security measures might not make the cut. Security windows in schools are a budget-friendly way to protect students. The quick installation process and protective warranty ensure window film is a sound investment.
Security glass film as an added measure of security alongside your alarm system is far more affordable than replacing all of the building’s windows with upgraded glass. Plus, security windows in schools are far more subtle than security bars and more inviting for students.
When Energy Solutions installs your school’s security window film, you can request the 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment System. This system attaches the film-covered window to the window frame, creating a shield that is more durable and stronger than film-only systems. Ultimately it becomes even more difficult for intruders to break through the windows. An added bonus is the combination of sun control window tint along with the security film. You’ll see big energy savings school-wide with this combination!

Even with the most advanced alarm and security systems, without protected windows, break-ins and intruders are still very possible. With school shootings and violence rising, added protection is more important than ever.
