Safety Is Key for Kansas City Schools
Kansas City is home to many families, and there’s no question why it is growing at a rate 1.4% since 2016, nearly twice as high as neighboring St. Louis. There are many fun activities for children and adults alike, such as The American Jazz Museum and the River Market. One of the top concerns for parents when choosing a community to settle down in is the safety of the schools they are entrusting their children into for 8 hours a day.

What Is Security Window Film And How Does It Help?
School safety film is a cost and time efficient solution that schools can consider when thinking of ways to increase school safety. This specialty window film adds a layer that reinforces entry points intruders are inclined to target, such as glass windows and glass doors. This reinforcement can make glass surfaces up to 40 times stronger than it is on its own, which deters attack from dangerous intruders. Careful testing has shown that security window film can prevent blunt force entry for up to two minutes, which is invaluable, as time is crucial to emergency response.
Security window films don’t only impede intruders; they can also protect against severe wind and weather such as tornadoes. Because of their adhesive quality, glass surfaces are less prone to shattering and causing injuries and damage from shards of glass. Unlike reconstruction of entryways and shatter-proof glass installation which are cost-prohibitive to most schools, window film is affordable and takes less time to implement.
