Security Film: Madison School District

Project Overview:

Objective: The primary goal of this project was to enhance the safety and comfort of the school district’s facilities. The need for a solution that could offer both superior protection against potential break-ins and natural disasters, as well as improved solar control, was paramount. The project sought to achieve this while also maintaining a welcoming and distraction-free environment for students and staff.

Challenges: The main challenges included installing a window film solution that could meet the rigorous safety standards required by educational institutions without compromising on natural light and the external appearance of the buildings. Additionally, the project had to be completed within the constraints of the school district’s schedule to avoid disrupting the academic calendar.

Solution: After a thorough consultation and needs assessment, NuVision recommended the 3M Ultra800 Window Film with the 3M Impact Protection Adhesive attachment system. The 3M Ultra800 series is renowned for its exceptional tear-resistant properties, offering enhanced protection against break-ins, bomb blasts, and natural disasters. When combined with the 3M IPA attachment system, it provides an added layer of security by ensuring that the film remains firmly attached to the window frame, even under extreme conditions. This solution also offers significant solar control benefits, reducing glare and heat from the sun, which can help in creating a more comfortable learning environment and reducing energy costs.

Implementation: The installation was meticulously planned and executed by NuVision’s team of certified professionals to ensure minimal disruption to school activities. The project was carried out during off-peak hours, with careful attention to detail to ensure that the installation was completed to the highest standards.


  • Enhanced Safety: The installation of the 3M Ultra800 with the 3M IPA system significantly improved the school district’s resilience against external threats, providing peace of mind for students, staff, and parents.
  • Improved Comfort: The window film’s solar control properties have made classrooms more comfortable by reducing glare and heat, contributing to a more conducive learning environment.
  • Energy Efficiency: The reduction in solar heat gain has led to lower energy consumption, resulting in cost savings for the school district.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: The project was completed with a keen eye on maintaining the aesthetic integrity of the school buildings, ensuring that the window film blended seamlessly with the existing architecture.
