WASHINGTON – Commercial Window Shield has been hired by DAVIS Construction for a security window film installation project in the nation’s capital.
The project, for the Office of Justice Programs, an agency within the U.S. Department of Justice, involves the installation of shatter resistant window film on all the windows on five floors of the building. DAVIS will be renovating all five floors of the building, located at 999 N. Capital St. NE.
The shatter resistant window film, also know as fragment retention window film, will be a 7-mil clear security film, as required in the General Service Administration’s Security Standards Guide. The security window film is designed to hold the glass windows in place during a terrorist attack, bomb blast or foul weather event.
In addition to the shatter resistant window film installation. Commercial Window Shield will be installing a decorative/privacy film on all office and conference room glass fronts on the same five floors.
In total, the company will be installing more than 14,000 sq. ft. of shatter resistant window film and more than 17,000 sq. ft. of privacy window film, also known as decorative window film.
The project is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2024. As always, Commercial Window Shield will work closely with DAVIS contractors to avoid scheduling conflicts.
