Edge Education Window Film

To consider whether Edge window film can provide solutions in schools and educational facilities, one must first consider the people impacted by theft, forced entry, high energy costs, and storm scenarios.

To be sure, the safety of students, staff, and faculty in forced entry and “shelter in place” scenarios is the primary concern. In addition, however, Edge window films can offer energy savings, and reduce the risk of smash-and-grab theft.

With these considerations in mind, the priorities in Educational Facilities anticipated by Edge window film are as follows:

  • Theft – Included in this first priority for schools and universities are theft and vandalism. Although there can be considerable financial cost when schools are broken into and vandalized, there is often a cost to the students’ progress once temporarily relocated to other schools during repair to their school. With the increasing budget expenditures on technology in our schools, Edge can offer protection. Unlike theft, vandals don’t need to actually get away with the school’s property but only destroy it.
  • Energy – as with other market segments, energy savings continues to be a main historical reason schools and universities consider window film. While offering energy savings and improved comfort with safety and security, schools and students benefit from the installation of energy-saving solar control window film from Edge.
  • Storm – school districts, universities, students, staff, and faculty are at high risk for property and personal loss due to high-energy storms. Whether the student loses irreplaceable records or the school is left to replace carpeting, drywall, and furnishings after a storm breaks out windows, these financial losses caused by water inside the building envelope can dwarf the cost of replacing the glass itself.
