Meet GSA Requirements with Security Window Film

Professional Window TintingSafety & Security Window Film

The General Service Administration works to provide products, services, and facilities that federal agencies need to serve the public. According to their website, their mission is to “Deliver value and savings in real estate, acquisition, technology, and other mission-support services across government.” In order to meet GSA requirements, federal facilities must have shatter-resistant security window film installed. Professional Window Tinting carries security window film that meets these GSA requirements, providing enhanced protection.

Safety & Security Window Film

The GSA has a window vulnerability policy, in which they conduct vulnerability assessments to federal facilities. This effort improves security and provides guidance for the planning and design of future buildings. In fact, the most vulnerable point in a building is the windows. This is where the security window film comes in to play.

Security window film helps to mitigate the dangers of flying shards of glass in the event that a window breaks. 3M Schotchshield Security Window Film is designed to stretch rather than tear. Instead of shattering and causing damage to objects and people, the glass stays in place. Security window film can protect windows in the event of burglaries, natural disasters, bomb blasts, as well as armed intruders.

Types of Security Window Film

Professional Window Tinting carries a variety of security films that offer different kinds of safety features. For instance, the Ultra Clear Series micro-layered, tear-resistant film protects people and property from flying shards of glass. In the event of human impact, natural disasters, or bomb blasts, Ultra S800 holds glass into place.

Additionally, security window film can combine with the 3M Impact Protection Attachment System for added safety. 3M Impact Protection improves the overall performance of 3M Security Window Films. To do so, the attachment system helps to further anchor the film to the frame, creating a strong shield that can withstand force. C-bond is another great addition to security window films as it further increases the strength and flexibility of the glass. Other categories of security window film include our Ultra Night Vision Series, our Ultra Prestige Series, and our Exterior Safety films. Learn more about our security window films here.
