Safety and Security Window Film for Schools by 3M™

The safety of children and staff in schools is a top priority. Sadly, active shooter events are on the rise. Even with the highest quality lock or alarm system, a building remains penetrable if the windows can be easily broken. 3M is proud to be a trusted partner of thousands of schools across the country, providing solutions to fortify windows and glass. We are committed to helping schools create a safer learning environment for all.

3M™ Safety and Security films are designed to mitigate hazards from shattered glass due to natural or human causes. Our 3M Security Films have been tested on numerous glazing types under a variety of blast loads to help protect people from flying glass shards and other related injuries.

Fortify Weak Entry Points from Intruders

Glass on windows and doors can be a vulnerable entry point into a building. 3M™ Safety and Security Window Film holds broken glass together hindering anyone trying to break and enter through a broken door or window.

Gain Extra Response Time

Slowing down an intruder and helping to deter unwanted individuals from entering your building helps response teams get to the scene to restrain unwanted visitors and allows your school staff more time to activate safety protocols.

Quick and Cost-Effective Solution

Unlike many security upgrades, 3M™ Safety and Security Window Film can be installed quickly over existing glass and provide a payback in as little as 3 years when combined with 3M™ Sun Control films. Helping schools upgrade their glass to code for a fraction of the cost vs. replacing them with tempered glass or other retrofit safety solutions.

An invisible layer of protection.
