Security and Solar Control Film Installation Project Completed by CWS at Va. School
NORFOLK, Va. – Commercial Window Shield has completed a project at St. Patrick Catholic School that will protect windows in its building and help conserve energy.
The project involved installing a combination 8-mil solar control and security film with a wet glaze attachment system on 420 panes of glass covering more than 5,000 square feet. All ground floor windows, entranceways and the school’s courtyard area windows are now protected by the security window film.
Additionally, the school – home to more than 400 K-8 grade students – will benefit from the energy saving component of the solar control window film. To help offset the project’s cost, St. Patrick will receive a rebate from Dominion Energy, which supports energy-saving efforts by schools and business in Virginia.
The project began July 9 and was completed on schedule today.
Since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in 2012, Commercial Window Shield has been at the forefront of protecting glass in school buildings nationwide. To date, the company has installed safety and security window film on more than 300 buildings in nine states.
In addition to the St. Patrick project, the company has completed security window film installation projects at Geneva, Minooka and Lake Zurich school districts in suburban Chicago; Calvert and Carroll Country [Md.] public schools; Bath Local Schools, near Lima, Ohio; Hewlett-Woodmere and Bellmore public schools, N.Y.; Hartford, Glastonbury and Simsbury school districts in Connecticut; Henry County in Virginia; and in Katy, Texas, Beaverton, Ore. and Lansdale, Pa.
School safety is just one area of expertise for Commercial Window Shield. With over 35 years experience the company is one of the nation’s leading security and solar control window film installers. Its projects cover a vast array of buildings and include some of the country’s most famous landmarks.
