Unfortunately, the possibility of danger exists, and our kids are more likely to stay safe in the event of a crisis if we plan ahead. One solution many schools are beginning to integrate into their buildings is the installation of 3M security film. This film is not bulletproof, but it does add an extra layer of security against intrusion and functions as one more piece of the overall security plan.

If you’re blessed with a home with an abundance of windows, you know it can be tough to find a balance when it comes to window coverings. Bright, open windows are beautiful in the right lighting, but when the sun’s light hits them directly, it can be tough to manage indoors. The sun’s heat can be miserable in the direct light, and those bright rays can cause a good deal of damage by lightening your art, furniture, and floors. Automated blinds are one of the most popular solutions to this problem, but they’re not without their downside.
