Protection, Comfort & Function
School Hardening Solutions
Tragic active shootings have forced educators and administrators to rethink school safety. An active shooter looking to cause harm can easily gain entry into a school by shooting a window’s glass and walking through the resulting window opening. That is how Adam Lanza entered Sandy Hook Elementary that fateful day.
3M Safety & Security Window Films with Impact Protection Adhesive 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.

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.
The limitation of a whiteboard is that someone inevitably writes on it in permanent marker, now rendering the whiteboard useless. But now, thanks to 3M Company, that is no longer a problem.
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.
