How Window Film Can Help Prevent a Violent School Attack

Commercial Window Shield is the industry leader in installing security window film on exposed school building glass.

Many school buildings in America are exposed to intruders who can enter by easily breaking the tempered glass in the entryways and first-floor windows. To solve this problem school districts are having security window film installed on their most vulnerable exposed glass.

Window film, which holds the glass firmly in place, acts as a deterrent by denying immediate entry and possibly stopping the threat altogether.  In these precious few minutes, school lockdown procedures and protocols can be put into effect and 9-1-1 first responders have the extra time they need to intervene.
