Campus Safety: Things to Know About Bullet Resistant Window Film For Schools
With schools in the San Antonio area back in session, something on everyone’s mind is keeping kids safer in school. Sadly, one thing every school needs to consider is school shootings. While you can’t control if your school gets attacked, you can shore up its exterior to keep out a potential shooter.

Security window film does this by keeping broken glass in place after a bullet strike. Not only does this stop a potential school shooter from quickly entering the school, but it also prevents glass fragments from exploding out to maim or kill students.
