CWS Selected to Install Security Window Film at Federal Reserve HQ in D.C.
WASHINGTON— Commercial Window Shield has been hired for a security window filminstallation project at the Federal Reserve Board’s Martin Buildingin the nation’s capitol.
The project involves installing 8-mil security film as a spallshield on the inside surface of ballistic glazing on all the ground floor windows. Although ballistic glazing can stop bullets it does not prevent the glass from shattering and propelling shards into the air, endangering Federal Reserve employees. The security film effectively stops and contains any glass fragments. In all, around 13,000 sq. ft. of glass will be protected by the security window film installed by Commercial Window Shield.
Tide Water Glazing of Hanover, Md.,who is installing the ballistic glazing in the building, hired CommercialWindow Film for the security film installation component of the project. Previously, Tide Water Glazing and CommercialWindow Shield worked together on a similar project at the U.S. Department ofTransportation headquarters building.
The Martin building is part of themain Federal Reserve Board campus bounded by Constitution and Virginia Avenuesand 20th and 21st Streets. The entire Martin building isundergoing renovation. Commercial Window Shield’s security window filminstallation part of the project will begin in the spring.
Commercial Window Shield is one of the country’s largestinstallers of security and solar control window films. Among the hundreds ofprojects the company has completed in its 30+ years are the U.S. Capitol,all House of Representative and Library of Congress buildings, Pentagon, FBIheadquarters, Grand Central Terminal, Merrill Lynch headquarters, O’HareInternational and Seattle-Tacoma airports, the WillisTower [former SearsTower], the United Nations, and the Philadelphia and Denvermints.
