Madico’s SafetyShield® 1500 is the ONLY school safety film that has fully passed UL 972 certification testing. This standard focuses on evaluating the performance and resistance of glazing materials against forced entry attempts, such as physical attacks or break-in attempts. UL 972 certification ensures that the materials have undergone rigorous testing to determine their ability to withstand various forms of forced entry, including impact, cutting, and prying. These tests are audited and updated quarterly to stay in compliance.
These security film systems can make windows more difficult to break and remain in place following a break, giving those inside time to react or seek a safe a safe location.
Safety and security window films can also improve privacy by making it more difficult for people to see inside the building during the daytime. This can be particularly beneficial for glass located in busy or high-traffic areas.
Safety and security window films can also help schools save on energy costs by reducing the amount of heat that enters or escapes the building. This can be particularly beneficial in areas with extreme temperatures.
Safety and security window film systems are a cost-effective solution for schools that need to upgrade their perimeter security measures. Installing these security film systems is typically more affordable and less disruptive than replacing with windows of similar performance capabilities.
See for yourself the power of our SafetyShield 1500 window film in action. This surveillance footage captures a brazen attempt by a burglar to break into a cell phone store overnight, only to be stopped in his tracks by the impenetrable film. With SafetyShield 1500, you can rest easy knowing that your windows are protected against forced entry attempts and other potential threats.
The answer, quite simply, is no. The International Window Film Association (IWFA) emphasizes that there's no bullet-proof testing for window film alone. If a salesperson states otherwise, insist on evidence. It's crucial to check if the windows in their tests are of the same type and thickness as your school's. The IWFA's detailed report, "Security Film in Schools," is accessible for download as a PDF from their website.
Safety and security window film systems can make it harder for intruders to gain access to your building. These security film systems can make windows more difficult to break and remain in place following a break, giving those inside time to react or seek a safe a safe location.
Safety and security window films provide an added layer of protection for K-12 schools by holding broken glass in place, mitigating the risk of injuries.
Safety and security window film systems can help protect K-12 schools from natural disasters such as windstorms and seismic events. For windstorm mitigation, these security film systems are designed to protect the envelope of the building. For seismic, these film systems are designed to protect individuals from falling glass.
View Control film systems can enable the person within the building to see out while limiting or even preventing the person outside the building from see in. These are systems are often called “one way” or “dual reflective”.
Areas View Control protection film systems can be used:
- Any glass or window that is not behind a perimeter fence.
- High traffic areas
Safety and security window films can also protect students and teachers from harmful UV rays. This can help reduce the risk of skin cancer and other health problems associated with prolonged exposure to the sun.
Safety and security window films can also increase comfort levels by reducing glare and balancing temperature. This can be beneficial for students and teachers who spend long hours in classrooms.
