AP Window Tinting Helps Carroll County Elementary Schools Stay Safe

October 12th, 2016 by Editor

AP Tinting announced it was recently awarded a contract to apply security glazing on every elementary school in Carroll County.

With violent incidents at schools increasing every year, the need for a protective barrier is more important than ever. Security window film is a less expensive, yet effective, option to replacing windows with bullet resistant glass. Thicker than normal glass combined with a proper installation process, it provides an essential obstacle against threats to the students.

This project was made possible by the assistance of federal grants. Every elementary school in the district will have extra protection against intruders and flying glass caused by accidents or weather.

AP Tinting will be installing Madico SafetyShield® 1500 window film using the Wet Glaze Anchoring System to the ground floor windows and front entrance doors of 23 Carroll County Elementary Schools. This system is designed to absorb an impact and redistribute the force over the whole window, which reduces the possibility of the glass shattering. It also takes a lot longer for an intruder to enter the building, which increases the time police have to respond and intervene.

“We take pride in all of our work. However, projects like this give my team a special sense of satisfaction to know we are protecting children’s lives,” says Bill Valway, CEO of Absolute Perfection. Bill’s 6-year-old son, Bryson, attends one of the 23 elementary schools, so he knows the importance of doing the installation correctly from the beginning.
