CHILDGARD SECURITY GLAZING TO BE FEATURED ON INSIDE THE BLUEPRINT AIRING ON FOX BUSINESS
SELMA, Alabama, Sept. 28, 2018 – Global Security Glazing announced that CHILDGARD® security glazing will be featured in a special segment on Inside the Blueprint airing on Fox Business, Sunday, Sept. 30, 4:30 p.m. EST.
Improving safety and security in educational facilities are top priorities for parents, school boards, law enforcement, and design professionals. As a result, officials are examining how to prohibit attackers from gaining entry into schools—particularly at access points, such as glass doors and windows.
“Most attacks begin inside of schools,” said Chad Snyder, security projects manager for Global Security Glazing. “To help prevent attacks, we believe it starts with delaying a perpetrator’s entry into a facility.”
To buy valuable time for law enforcement to arrive on scene, Global Security Glazing designed CHILDGARD glazing to withstand extensive physical attack from various weapons for 6-to-12 minutes.
“We’re proud to partner with Inside the Blueprint to inform a national audience on the capabilities of glass to help neutralize threats,” Snyder added. “As part of the segment, we’ll show viewers how CHILDGARD glazing actually performs through various tests, including shootings and smash-out breakouts.”
Developed as an effective and affordable way for school officials across the country to improve safety and security in their facilities, CHILDGARD glazing is a laminated security glass construction that’s specially designed for use in school and educational facilities to withstand forced-entry scenarios. Available for both new and retrofit applications, CHILDGARD glazing can be used in insulating glass units and paired with high-performance, tinted, and other glass options to meet safety, energy, and other design goals.
