KinderCare Secures Learning Centers' Windows with Glass Safety Film

Enpro Distributing completes four-year project to install window protection film at 1,200 childcare centers


Houston, TX -- Enpro Distributing, Inc. and KinderCare Learning Centers announced the completion of their Global Safety Film Program today.

The multi-phase, four-year project involved the installation of glass safety film on more than 1,200 childcare centers throughout the United States. The entire nationwide project was managed and facilitated by Enpro Distributing, Inc.

In an effort to create a safer environment for children and staff members alike, KinderCare managers determined they could minimize the dangers of broken glass by applying a clear safety film product to both the interior and exterior surfaces of all their windows. Once installed, the product greatly improves the impact resistance of glass and in the event a window is broken, the material helps prevent dangerous glass shards from dislodging from the frame.

This innovative material was developed specifically for KinderCare Learning Centers by Madico, Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers of safety films. The unique KinderCare product contains an exclusive scratch resistant coating that is suitable for interior and exterior applications, allowing Enpro to effectively double the protective capacity.

"The safety of the children in our care is KinderCare's number one priority," said Christina Stewart, director of facilities management at KinderCare. "We take great pride in providing the safest possible environment for our children and staff members".

"We approached Madico with a need for a product like this, and they were more than happy to develop it for us," said Chris Weinhardt, director of marketing at Enpro Distributing, Inc. "KinderCare is definitely leading the way in the child care industry. It's fantastic that we were able to come together and help create a safer environment for the children and staff."
