San Antonio schools are back in session, and the most important topic on everyone’s mind is how to protect kids from school shootings. It’s a sad reality that every school needs to consider because it could happen at any time. While you can’t predict when or where an active shooter situation will occur– there are some precautions schools can take like having bulletproof glass installed on campus.

How Bullet Resistant Window FIlms Keeps Students Safer

High-end security films can stop bullets when used with other technologies like C-Bond adhesive and specialty frames. When a bullet strikes the film, it holds broken glass in place so that students have more time to get away from an active shooter.  It also prevents flying glass shards from hurting those nearby the attack.  Finally, and most importantly, it keeps the shooter at bay longer since they will have to use many shots and pry at the broken glass sheet to gain entry.  

Additional Benefits of Bullet Proof Window Film on Schools

Bullet-resistant window film provides multiple benefits to San Antonio schools, including keeping students safe from physical harm. For example, in addition to stopping bullets, it can help prevent injuries should a student slip into a large glass door or window.  These powerful films also block UV rays that can lead to dangerous skin diseases like melanoma. Finally,  safety and security films are an extra layer of security for schools to stop late-night robberies or vandalism.

Bullet Resistant Window Film Affordable for Schools

Safety and Security Film applied with C-Bond and attached to specialty frame systems is especially good for schools because it is cost-effective. It has a lower barrier to entry, unlike other bullet-resistant technologies.  This means it is a more accessible way for schools to protect themselves against attack.  It also looks better than other types of bullet-resistant technologies like laminated glass.
