Safety and Security Window Film in Denver CO
We know the scenario because we have seen it too many times. There’s been another school or office shooting. Instantly we think, how many died? How many wounded? What were their ages? Who was the shooter? Why would someone do such a horrific thing? The questions run through our mind at warp speed and they are endless. However there’s one question that keeps coming up, both in our mind and on the news reports. What can we do about this problem? That’s were safety and security window film comes into play.
In a perfect world we would love to come up with a solution that would eliminate another mass shooting from ever happening again. However, we don’t live in a perfect world. Because we can’t eliminate the problem, we need to focus on how to protect our schools and places of employment, and in turn protect our kids, families and friends. Let’s see how safety and security window film helps.
Every Second Counts
We’ve all heard the phrase, “Every second counts”. That phrase has never applied more than when it comes to mass shootings. When you have an active shooter situation, the difference a second or two makes is huge. One or two seconds can even save lives, sometimes many. When you add safety and security film to a building’s windows, you’re adding a critical layer of protection. How so? Safety and security films help in delaying the potential shooter by holding shattered glass in place.
Remember, “every second counts”, with safety and security film you’re gaining several seconds. Notice the demo of this in the video on the right. Did you see how much longer it took for the active shooter to get through the window with a safety and security film applied? These added seconds can allow the employees or students to run to safety, alert other people to the situation and call 911 for help. Lives could be saved, all because of a thin layer of security film.
Did you know that according to a 2018 Gallup survey, 35% of U.S. parents said they fear for their children’s safety while they are at school? The average period of an active shooter incident at a school is 12.5 minutes, according to the Department of Homeland Security. The national average response time for law enforcement is 18 minutes. That’s 5.5 minutes longer then the situation itself. More likely than not the active shooter situation will probably be over before law enforcement even arrives on the scene.
Adding safety and security window film with an Attachment System can slow down intruders. Typically taking 1-2 minutes or longer for the glass to penetrate or shatter over typical glass with no safety and security film applied. Our children are worth adding this layer of protection.
