The Weakest Link?
Any building—be it a home, office or school—is only as strong as its weakest link. And sometimes, that link is the glass. So why not make that weak link as strong, safe and secure as possible? As a result of school shootings such as the one at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., in February 2018, and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., six years ago, some school adminis-trators and parents are increasingly reviewing glass and glazing options as possible protectors from unforeseen gun violence. “In a perfect world this market wouldn’t exist, but as long as there are ﬁ rearms and weapons of destruction around there will be a need for this,” says Matt Jacobsohn, senior national accounts manager at School Guard Glass. “What is more important than keeping your child safe? Nothing.”
