3M School Security Film Case Study Summary

Real-life examples are one of the best ways to understand how window film can benefit Austin schools. Case studies, in particular, show why and how window film was chosen for use in specific educational settings. The school security window film case study below is a great illustration of how effective window film can be at protecting students not just in Austin but all over the country.

3M School Security Window Film Case Study Situation

Nowadays, schools across America are worried about active shooters. The least secure parts of any building are the glass windows and doors, so those should be reinforced first. Unfortunately, Jewish organizations have to worry even more about security threats than most. That’s why a security consultant (and former FBI agent) advised Jewish schools in Cincinnati to seek out window film solutions to protect against gun and bomb threats.

After exploring various options, the Jewish Schools decided that window film offered the best security solution. They chose 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film because it was the most cost-effective and demonstrated superior results. A local Jewish school then installed an impact-resistant window film system that included a specialty adhesive to hold broken glass together in the event a bullet hit it. This type of 3M system also thwarts anyone trying to break into the school through a window.

The results were impressive. The school reports that they love the fact that the film is virtually invisible, so potential attackers would never know it was there. It turned out to be the most cost-effective and powerful solution to secure the building exterior as well.  The best part is that now students and staff have peace of mind knowing their school is adequately protected against gun violence.
