January 7, 2019 in Aggrigate, Safety And Security Film

Denver schools struggle with security concerns due to strict budget constraints. With mass shootings and domestic attacks happening throughout the country, this epidemic needs to be addressed especially in schools. While there are many security options that can aid in prevention, if current security falls short, none of these measures can defend students and faculty from gunfire. Ballistic resistant window film offers the next best thing to bulletproof glass.

Advantages of Ballistic Resistant Window in Your Denver School

Ballistic resistant window film is the closest thing available to bulletproof glass. Bulletproof glass simply isn’t a reality yet, but this specialty security film offers extensive protection against gunfire and other hazards. Ballistic resistant window film provides comprehensive coverage against gunfire, natural disasters, freak accidents, burglaries, and break-ins. With a higher impact resistance than ordinary security film, glass hazards are mitigated. This significantly reduces the risk of injury and blast-related deaths. Ballistic resistant window film offers a complex system of numerous layers of security film, attachment system, and glass strengthening agent. This adds heightened durability and flexibility to your existing glass doors and windows. By protecting the most vulnerable areas of your campus, students and faculty will have precious time to better hide or escape until the police arrive.

Window Film For School Safety In Denver

For nearly every industry and setting, window film is able to serve a variety of purposes  However this truly outstanding technology is incredibly useful for educational institutions in particular.  From East High School to Lincoln Elementary the overwhelming number of benefits of window film are as ubiquitous

Of all the benefits that window film affords schools (glare control, energy-efficiency, privacy, security) one could easily argue the most important one is safety.  When it comes to protection, there are also a number of ways that window film keeps both faculty and students in Denver safer.

Bullet And Bomb Resistance From Window Film


The most potent and powerful window film for schools is bullet and bomb resistant film.  While it is true that there is no such thing as “bulletproof” glass–safety and security film paired with C-bond adhesive and specialty attachment systems make for a powerful combination to protect against attacks from bullets and bombs.  These security window films both slow down a would-be attacker (giving students and staff more time to escape) and keep the glass from exploding outward potentially hurting or killing bystanders.

Window Film For Protection From Accidents or Natural Disaster


Window film is something that keeps Denver students and staff protected in the event of an accident like– slip and falls being the most common.  Window film works similar to tempered glass in that, should someone fall into the glass, it will shatter but stay stuck to the glass in copious little shards–making it nearly harmless.   The same holds true for natural disaster protection–the glass will stay intact on the film even when hit by high-velocity debris and winds from things like tornados or hail storms.

Window Film For UV Protection


One of the most common but mostly overlooked threats that Denver school students staff face from their untreated windows are UV rays.  The danger is not immediate but rather, over time, the rays of the sun are very harmful to both the eyes and skin of humans and be the cause of eye and skin cancers/disease. Window film blocks UV rays, reducing the risk of UV related disease.

#2) Decorative Window Film For Stylish Privacy

Window treatments are sometimes hard to match to your decor. But curtains and blinds are essential for privacy.  Decorative window film is attractive, creative and fully customizable to give you exactly the level of coverage you want for different areas of the house like bedrooms, entryways, and bathrooms.  Beyond how sleek they look, this type of application is extremely creative and unique and are sure to delight your guests.

#3) Decorative Window FIlm For Lovely Style And Perfect Function

Places like breakfast nooks, entryways, and bathrooms, are all areas you want softly lit with an inviting look.

Decorative window film is a way to get that elegant diffused look you want since it comes in many textures like etched, cut, sandblasted, and textured glass at a much lower price point than traditional patterned or sandblasted glass.

The only limitation with decorative window film is truly your own imagination.  Contact us at Denver Window Tinting today for more decorative window film ideas and to get pricing for your Breckenridge home.
