Safety and Security Window Film for Schools

open space home

At Tint’d Film and Graphics we know how important school security and comfort can be for students and teachers which is why we are going to talk about window safety film and advantages and benefits for schools.


Why should your school consider safety and security window film? It’s because the weakness of all buildings including schools is glass. Shattered glass from break ins is extremely messy and dangerous and extreme discomfort from the heat, UV from direct sunlight during the afternoons will leave students and teachers feeling depleted.

Window Film For School Security

Greater safety and security is just a window installation away with 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films. The films are applied over existing glazing to provide an invisible layer of protection that always stays on, catching intruders off guard when they attempt to break through glass windows for fun or profit! While these films aren’t bulletproof nor impenetrable (though they do slow down would-be criminals), their strong tear resistance makes them perfect choices in reducing your risk during a vandalism attempt.


If you have a vulnerable point of entry, such as glass doors or lower level windows at your school then anti-smash/ grab film is the best solution. Anti Smash Window Films will not only mitigate hazards from shattered windows but also hold them in place so that unwanted guests are deterred from continuing their unwarranted exploration into what lies behind these surfaces

It’s important to protect all areas where people enter with something durable like this type of protection–it can help significantly reduce theft rates while holding down expenses on repairs costs due to damages caused by vandals who want nothing more than mischief at any cost.

Window Film For School Security Comfort

Schools are subject to many environmental conditions that can affect the safety and security of students and staff such as wind storms or hail. During these occurrences window film has an ability to protect students from flying debris or shattered glass by maintaining integrity during the event.


Glass is not as energy efficient and has a higher maintenance cost than structures made of brick or concrete. The sun’s infrared rays easily penetrate glass, so it doesn’t insulate like other materials do.

The sun is harmful to our skin and can cause problems like fading, discolouration damage to furnishings. School window film provides anti-glare benefits which make it easier for students during peak hours of the day while also protecting them from UV rays that may be too strong.


Window film is also an excellent way to keep your school cool during the warmer seasons. The specially designed window films reduce how much solar energy enters a building, which means your school will spend less money on heating bills and your staff and students will be much more comfortable and eager to keep teaching and learning during those warm afternoons.
