Designing for School Safety
Nothing should stand in the way of an ideal learning environment. As incidents over the last decade have shown, the need for safeguarding schools and educational facilities against opportunistic threats, has never been greater. Fortifying vulnerable entry points can deter intruders from entering and allows staff more time to activate safety protocols. Our security glass and glazing systems provide a single-source of comprehensive solutions that are tested to safeguard against intruders, in even the most severe forced-entry attempts.
Security Glazing and Systems
To ensure that each system offers the highest level of delayed forced entry, we're the only company that tests our frame, entrance, and glass together against multiple attacks.
