Enhance your school’s defense against gun violence and other threats to students and faculty with 3M™ Privacy Film, 3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes and 3M™ Safety & Security Window Film.
3M™ Privacy Film can meet your school safety standards with designs ranging from subtle to visually impenetrable. These films offer classic looks that are effective and considerably less expensive than new glass.
Looking for something more decorative? 3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes can provide your school with a boost to aesthetics from its immense catalog while still meeting privacy standards.
Also, 3M offers a scientifically proven security window film to protect school campuses. Window security film installation has been recommended by the United States Federal Commission on School Safety, the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission.
Enhance School Safety with Privacy Film
3M™ Privacy Film is designed to obstruct viewing into private areas like classrooms and offices, enhancing school safety. These films are a fraction of the cost of new glass.
3M™ White Matte Translucent Film blurs viewing clarity just enough to ensure privacy and enhance aesthetics while still permitting light to filter through the glass.
3M™ Mirror Film is highly reflective and projects a one-way mirror effect, allowing for those on the inside to see out without being easily spotted.
3M™ Blackout Film allows for the utmost privacy in applied areas, permitting little to no visibility and minimal light transmission through the glass.
Privacy films provide traditional, low-profile aesthetics that can elevate safety and comfort in your school and are affordable. However, if more dynamic and style-specific designs are in order, 3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes offer just that and more.
Fasara Finishes and Whiteboard Film Enhance School Safety
3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes are versatile and can be endlessly adapted to meet the aesthetic specifications of your school while offering school safety.
Consisting of over 90 finishes brought to you by some of the world’s top interior designers, 3M™’s Fasara™ catalog can provide you with the privacy your school seeks while promoting a tasteful study and work environment.
These finishes are made from a durable polyester material with a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing, making them quickly and easily appliable to any interior glass while maintaining the cultivated look of real etched, textured glass. Superior durability makes 3M™ Fasara™ finishes easily compatible with the tumultuous pace of a school environment, all while costing a fraction of the price of traditional methods.
Also, 3M offers environmentally friendly, vinyl-free Fasara finishes that are worth considering for your school’s next interior design project. These finishes provide all the benefits of standard Fasara™ Glass Finishes while taking a decisive step towards the betterment of the environment.
3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes are available in seven general styles: fabric, natural, stripe, geometric, gradation, frost, and dot.
A whiteboard Fasara option is also available and appliable to glass and walls for creative space. Whiteboard film is stain, chemical and abrasion resistant, lasts an average of five years, and is a practical and aesthetically pleasing alternative to bulky traditional whiteboards.
Protect Students and Faculty with Safety & Security Window Film
Along with privacy, 3m specializes in state-of-the-art security window film to ensure your school’s safety measures hold steadfast against violent attacks.
It is not by chance that the 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film sets the industry standard for quality and is used by schools nation-wide. 3m security film is thoroughly tested to meet safety glazing impact requirements and protect people and property from bomb blasts, chemical explosions and other explosives through both shock tube and open-air arena explosive testing.
Glass on windows and doors are commonly targeted sites of access by intruders. 3m safety window film is designed to hold broken glass together in the case of such an event, largely reducing the risk of those on the opposite side of an impact to be cut or pierced by shattered glass.
3m window safety film deters forced entries by up to two minutes, providing police and first responders with precious time to arrive on scene. For reference, the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, which tragically took the lives of 14 students, three faculty members, and injured 17 more, occurred over a span of nine minutes, according to the Broward Sherriff’s Office’s preliminary timeline of events.
Superior tear-resistant protection and solar control are what make Ultra Prestige film the most technically advanced window film on the market. It offers a tensile strength of 27,000 psi and break strength of 215 lbs/in, figures that are elsewhere unmatched.
Ultra Prestige film also provides up to 97% infrared rejection and significantly filters the passage of harmful UV rays, extending the life of classroom equipment and furnishing. Heat rejection can lead to substantial energy savings and improved comfort for students and faculty, allowing for payback in as little as three years by reducing air conditioning costs. Moreover, Ultra Prestige film projects low interior and exterior reflectivity for optimal viewing clarity, providing security while never compromising light transmission and excellent aesthetics.
By itself or paired with privacy film or Fasara™ glass finishes, 3M’s industry-leading Safety & Security Window Film, Ultra Prestige Series is a solid solution to keep your students and faculty safe and comfortable.
