Benefits of Security Films for School Campuses

Enhanced School Safety through Perimeter Protection and Security Surveillance

Implementing robust perimeter protection and comprehensive view security measures is crucial for ensuring a safe and secure learning environment in schools. These strategies not only deter unauthorized access but also provide continuous monitoring, creating a secure atmosphere for students and staff.

  • Perimeter Protection. 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.
  • Vision Control. 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.
  • Cost Effective. 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.
  • Energy Savings. 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.


Frequently Asked Questions

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.

In a word, no. There is no such thing as bullet or hurricane-proof glass. While many companies claim theirs is, the tests they conduct to promote these claims use uncommon film(s) not typically found in installed glass. Most installed security glass is 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch, while these companies test 1/2-inch and use multi-layers of film. Madico's security film is engineered to reduce injuries and damages by keeping shattered glass together.

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.

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.

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.

  • Any glass or window that is not behind a perimeter fence
  • Entrances and vestibules
  • High-traffic areas
  • Corridors
  • Gathering spaces, cafeterias, auditoriums, libraries, gymnasiums, etc.
  • Classroom and interior doors
  • Staff facilities

Areas View Control protection film systems can be used:

  • Any glass or window that is not behind a perimeter fence.
  • High traffic areas
  • Entrances
  • Cafeterias
  • Gymnasiums

Window films have many benefits, depending on your choice of film.


For residences and buildings, tinted window films, also called solar control films, can do the following:

  • Significantly reduce solar heat gain (up to 86%) and temperature inside a building
  • Reduce air conditioning costs in summer and heating costs in winter
  • Extend the life of HVAC systems by reducing maintenance and strain on the system
  • Decrease a building’s environmental emissions
  • Increase occupant comfort
  • Reduce up to 95% of annoying glare to improve visibility inside, especially for computer and TV screens
  • Allows natural light in without the glare, reducing the need for artificial lighting
  • Provide daytime privacy
  • Block up to 99% of damaging UV radiation, protecting furniture, carpets, woodwork, and other interior furnishings from fading
  • Improve building aesthetics and accent windows
  • Increase shatter resistance
  • May help in attaining LEED credits towards certification

Automotive window films:

  • Improve personal safety by blocking up to 99% of harmful UV rays
  • Improve occupants' comfort due to maximum heat and glare reduction
  • Offer extreme IR rejection—up to 92%
  • Reduce fading of interiors
  • Help hold shattered glass together in the event of an accident
  • Accent the look of automobiles

Safety & security films are comprised of thicker polyester and stronger, more assertive adhesives. They hold shattered glass in place to offer protection from threats like:

  • Burglary and vandalism attempts—the film's thickness helps make treated glass harder to break or rupture
  • Graffiti—anti-graffiti film protects buildings from taggers and artists
  • Wind-borne debris
  • Natural disasters
  • Bomb blasts
