Since security threats have escalated in occurrence in US schools in recent years, parents, teachers, and institutions have been faced with the challenging responsibility of ensuring the safety of their students. Many have looked into effective and practical methods to help prevent or lessen casualties.
Smart Glass Technologies is committed to improving the lives of people all around the world by offering practical, affordable solutions that increase privacy and security. One such solution is PriWatt™️ film, which is a type of PDLC film that can help schools during security situations.
How does it help? Firstly, the PriWatt™️ film is applied on top of existing glass and can be transparent or frosted/opaque in a fraction of a second by the click of a switch. Furthermore, the film can be remotely controlled, which can make it possible for teachers and administrators to activate it quickly and block the view during difficult situations without getting close to the glass and putting their lives in danger. Polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) film, once applied to classroom doors and windows, creates a physical barrier that can block the view of potential dangers and protect students and staff. During very delicate situations, the PriWatt™️ film can buy time for students and teachers to evacuate as soon as possible.
Secondly, the PriWatt™️ film, once applied to the glass, makes it intact even when it gets broken, meaning that the broken glass will not fall apart. The film is an effective physical barrier during forced entry because even if the glass gets damaged, the switchable film layer will still hold the glass together, preventing the intruder from accessing the building easily. This product is a favorite among designers and architects. With a touch of remote control, it can offer security while maintaining the lovely view and allowing natural light to enter.
Thirdly, it makes the learning environment safe, private, and comfortable for students, allowing them to focus on important school tasks.
Lastly, PriWatt™️ film has the advantage of being applicable to existing windows and doors, so there is no need for extensive construction or renovation. This can make it a cost-effective solution for schools that may not have the resources for more complex security systems.
However, it is important to note that PDLC film is not a replacement for other security measures, such as emergency drills and active security training. It should be used in conjunction with other measures to ensure the safety of students and staff.
In conclusion, PriWatt™️ film is a versatile and effective solution for schools facing security threats. By creating a barrier between potential threats and the students and staff inside, PDLC film can provide an additional layer of protection during an emergency.
Ultimately, PriWatt™️ film can provide a sense of peace of mind for everyone involved in the school community.
