Window Film For School Safety In SLC 

Window film serves a wide variety of purposes in nearly every industries and setting.  But, this amazing technology than schools is key to successful educational institutions in particular.  From Highland High School to Neumont College of Computer Science the benefits of window film are as ubiquitous as they are helpful for schools and colleges.  

While window film provides many benefits for schools in the SLC area, one could argue that the most important one is safety.  And when it comes to protection, there are many different ways that window film keeps both faculty and students in Salt Lake City safer.

Bullet And Bomb Resistance From Window Film

The most powerful and strong window film for schools is bullet and bomb resistant film. There is no such thing as “bulletproof” glass but safety and security film paired with C-bond adhesive and specialty attachment systems are a powerful combination against attacks from bullets and bombs.  It both slows down a would-be attacker giving students more time to escape and keeps glass from exploding outward where it could hurt bystanders.

Window Film For Protection From Accidents or Natural Disaster

Window film is something that keeps students and staff of Salt Lake City schools protected in the event of an accident like slip and falls.  The way window film works is similar to tempered glass. Should someone fall into the glass, it will not shatter and break into potentially dangerous shards but rather stay stuck to the glass in copious little shards–making it much less harmful.   The same holds true in the event of a natural disaster such as a tornado–the glass will stay intact on the film even when hit by high-velocity debris or winds

Window Film For UV Protection


One of the most common but quite often overlooked threats that Salt Lake City 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 impact of the sun and the risk of UV related disease.
