3M™ Safety Film For Schools


3M™ Safety and Security Film has been incorporated into over 400 U.S. schools since January 2013. Schools have chosen this solution because:

• It is more cost effective than replacing all windows and doors with laminated glass
• It is easily applied, even over existing glazing
• While it cannot stop intruders from entering school buildings, it does act as a deterrent, providing precious response time by slowing the intruder down


3M™ recommends the following safety products for optimum security:

• Ultra Series S800 – for strong, tear-resistance
• Safety Series S140 – holds broken glass together so windows won’t shatter
• Impact Protection Attachment Systems – bonds the filmed window to the frame, offering the highest level of protection when combined with another safety film
