A recent news story published by the Cincinnati WLWT 5 news channel assessed the effectiveness of security window film, a new school security initiative. Solar Tint, a locally owned and operated 3M window film dealer, provided the film installation for the demonstration. This security window film was put to the test, and the results were astounding.
Watch this video showing the security window film installed by Solar Tint in action. The window splinters without breaking, even when bullets sail directly through the glass. Furthermore, the window upholds its integrity even as expert marksman Jon Villing fires multiple rounds.
Security Window Film in Cincinnati Schools
Solar Tint has installed security window film on critical access points at a number of schools in the Greater Cincinnati area. Security window film is virtually invisible and relatively quick and inexpensive to install. Additionally, it works around the clock to improve the security of doors and windows, protecting students from intruders gaining access.
3M Security Film delays a perpetrator’s access long enough to hinder their plans and creates a crucial window of time. This valuable time allows students and staff to reach safety points and carry out specific security protocols while alerting authorities. The transparent nature of the window film allows school staff to observe who is present at the surrounding doors and windows while reinforcing the vulnerable access points with a layer of robust, shatter-resistant protection.
