(NAPSI)—For parents, students, teachers and others in the community, school intruders intent on harm can be a serious concern. 

Fortunately, delaying their entry is made easier with Security Window Films on windows and doors. They may buy time to allow for more response time and save lives.

“School shootings reveal plain or tempered glass doors and windows are often the point of entry that is breached by intruders ready to do harm,” said Darrell Smith, executive director of the nonprofit International Window Film Association (IWFA). “All glass doors and windows on the ground level need to be evaluated with an eye toward security to better protect everyone inside,” he added.

To more fully inform parents and school administrators, the IWFA has a free, downloadable guide at www.iwfa.com/consumers under “Literature” that explains what Security Window Film can do. No Security Window Film known to the IWFA will make standard building glass bulletproof. Any claim to the contrary should be carefully examined or brought to the attention of the IWFA.

There are other advantages, however. When designed to save energy, as well, Security Window Films may reduce solar heat gain by as much as 80 percent. They are a most cost-effective solution with payback in many instances of less than five years.

 “When it comes to protection from school intruders, parents, teachers and others may be relieved to know that the nonprofit International Window Film Association has a free, downloadable guide that explains how Security Window Film can help.https://bit.ly/2WFhirf
