Security Films for Schools

Schools are vital. They are the educational training grounds used to develop the minds of the future. For this reason, they are indispensable and must be protected. Similar to other buildings, structures, and edifices, educational facilities are typically considered to be safe and imperturbable. And while this is usually the case, that doesn’t mean that they’re without their weak points. 

For schools everywhere, the windows are the weakest link in the building’s chain of physical components. As such, safety is often compromised in such examples. All it takes is an aggressive storm, an intruder, or debris falling from a moving vehicle to damage a school window that’s not properly protected. 

And that’s why we here at Spectra Light offer security films to assist with these possibilities. Keep reading to learn more.

Ballistic Glass for Schools

Security films (or safety window films, as they’re also referred to as) are used for additive safety and security in a myriad of commercial buildings and facilities. This special film comes in either clear or tinted options and is easily installed simply by applying it over your current window. Ballistic films are strongly advised if you want to safeguard your school facility from potential threats such as trespassers, as well as hail, wind, and thunderstorms. 

Moreover, security film  is so effective that it is often used in financial institutions, corporate organizations, and even in other schools. This security film will ensure the safety of your facility and its occupants by bolstering your windows’ strength and deterring potential trespassers.  

Other benefits of commercial security window film include:

Coolvu Transitional Films

If your office is punctuated with an array of windows, then you understand the frustration that comes with the glaring sunlight. This can impede productivity as it can blur computer screens, or it can simply make things uncomfortably hot in the office. As such, we here at Spectra Light offer coolvu transitional films that respond to the climate. 

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology to adjust itself according to the atmospheric conditions at the time, coolvu transitional films are the first of their kind. The film darkens on hot days to ensure you remain cool, and retains its original tinge on overcast days (or the nighttime) to optimize whatever sunlight is available.

Solar films can protect you from the overbearing heat on those dog days of summer. This is a product that will go a long way in your office space; helping to ensure worker productivity as well as office comfortability all year long. Solar films provide alleviation from the overwhelming sun and allow for a relaxing work environment at a comfortable room temperature.
