School Safety & Security Window Films Pennsylvania
Unfortunately in recent years schools have become a soft target for individuals looking to cause mass harm and wreak havoc on society. There have been many advancements though in the ways we secure these schools and protect the children and faculty inside.
In addition to access control, faculty training, scenario based training, & security cameras, Security film is an EXCELLENT first line of defense to aid in delaying entry into a building.
What is Security Film?
Security film is an optical grade polyester material that varies in thickness from 4-14 mil thick and is applied to a piece of glass, providing strength, intrusion protection, and even blast mitigation protection. When applied with a proper attachment system to the frame, it can delay entry of intruders and protect the occupants of the building from glass debris in the event of glass breakage.

Why do you need a certified installer?
While there are many window tinting companies you may see, only a select few are focused on commercial window film installations, and even less are factory trained in the proper application of security films. Proper installation of the films and the attachment systems is crucial to the effectiveness of the film and how it performs! Black Diamond Tint is a certified Armorcoat Partner.
