Security in a Gun-Friendly City like San Antonio

The world can be a dangerous place sometimes. From natural disasters like hurricanes and floods to violent crimes like mass shootings, it’s more important now than ever to protect ourselves from a number of threats. This is especially true for government workers who go to work each day.

Many Texans are strong supporters of the Second Amendment, with roots and history in the Wild West. Many Texans in San Antonio feel it’s their right to carry firearms, which may be a reason for increased concern about gun safety. One solution to increase safety at least within government buildings is ballistic resistant window film. Ballistic resistant window film can protect San Antonio government buildings and public spaces between Vista Verda and La Villita and beyond.

Benefits of Ballistic Resistant Window Film

First and foremost, ballistic resistant window film can add protection against intruders, firearms, explosives, and violent attacks. Ballistic resistant window film is installed using C-bond, a new and innovative primer created by a group of scientists and engineers headquartered locally here in Texas. This powerful primer uses carbon nanotube technology, and when these very small carbon particles are bonded onto a porous surface like glass, it enhances the molecular structure to be more web-like which increases the surface’s strength like no other glass primer.

With the addition of C-bond,  are more durable against high impact forces like gunshots, protecting government buildings from the worst damage. Ballistic resistant window film strengthens glass up to 200%, which helps against damage caused by severe weather conditions as well as spontaneous glass shatter, which is more common than you might think (two window manufacturers say 1 in 400 to 1000 windows can spontaneously shatter).

Ballistic resistant window films can be utilized in a number of state-affiliated buildings:

  • Courthouses
  • Public schools and state colleges
  • Police stations and jails
  • Transportation centers
  • Cultural centers like libraries and museums
