School Safety

Protection, Comfort & Function

3M Company offers multiple solutions to increase the security and productivity of any school.

3M Films benefit schools beyond enhanced security and productivity. Watch the video to learn how Sun Control Window Film can improve a school building's energy efficiency and comfort, or how Decorative Glass Finishes can be installed to enhance privacy and interior aesthetics.

3M Safety & Security Window Films can help prevent unwanted entry. While window film will not stop a bullet (no window film will on its own, no matter what you read), it will help to hold shattered glass in place to effectively slow down an intruder, giving students and teachers critical time to get to safety and security personnel to respond before entry occurs. The installation of 3M Safety & Security Window Films to exterior and interior school windows can be an effective and inexpensive way to keep your students and staff safe from bad people.

Schools throughout the country have been using 3M’s strongest and toughest security films (ULTRA S800 and Safety S140) coupled with its Impact Protection Adhesive (IPA). These products have been made available to numerous educational purchasing cooperatives throughout the country.

Solutions for Increased Productivity In Schools

Whiteboards encourage collaboration among others and there is no higher need for collaboration than in education. The free exchange and progression of ideas best occurs when there is a written record. Enter the whiteboard – a great way to write (and erase) for all others to see.

3M’s Post-it® Flex Write Surface is a whiteboard film that can be installed on existing whiteboards and be erased, even when permanent marker is used. To erase permanent marker from Flex Write Surface, simply dampen a cloth with water and wipe away the “permanent” marker. It’s that easy.

You can repurpose those old damaged whiteboards by installing this semi-permanent film on top. Flex Write Surface can also be installed on other flat and smooth surfaces such as tables, desks, and walls. The film can be easily removed and replaced with another layer in just minutes.
