3M™ Safety and Security Window Film for Schools

  • At 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.

What 3M™ Safety and Security Films do for your school

  • smashed window held together with window films
    Developed for Fragment Retention

    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.

  • multiple police vehicles
    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.

  • beautiful exterior of a school facility protected with 3M window films
    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.

  • Teacher helping happy students in school

    More than 100 years after its founding, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati is the oldest continuously operating Jewish federation in North America. Started in 1896, the group is a resource for Cincinnati’s Jewish population, encouraging networking, coordinating community giving and providing support for various organizations throughout the region. The Federation aims to identify and prioritize the needs of the Jewish Community, and today, with active shooter events on the rise, the safety of children in schools was identified as a top priority. The search for better security measure eventually led to a 3M product—3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film Ultra S800 and 3M™ Impact Protection Profile Attachment System.
