How Commercial Businesses are Using Window Films
Using window films on your commercial building will make you a leader in your community, lower your operating costs, and improve your ROI. It’s hard to go wrong with an investment like that. Read on to learn how window film can improve your building.
Although many businesses are looking for ways to reduce their utility bills and enhance the appearance of their properties, not many of them realize that they can ‘kill two birds with one stone’ by having high-quality commercial window film installed. Below are just a few ways in which this seemingly simple upgrade can provide a tremendous amount of benefit to virtually any type of business.
Keep Employees Safe and Comfortable
One of the main benefits that commercial solar film provides is that it prevents excessive sunlight and heat from entering business properties, which in turn keeps workers comfortable. Another benefit of this product is that it helps reduce glare on computer screens. This further promotes employee comfort by helping to reduce instances of eye strain and headaches. Many commercial tinting products have been rated to protect employees and other building occupants in the event of hurricanes and tornadoes occurring because they can help prevent shards of glass from spreading throughout a building.
Reduce Energy Bills
Although businesses that have more than 100 square feet of storefront glass will be able to save as much as one ton of air conditioning per year when all of their windows are treated, this does not mean to say that smaller businesses won’t benefit from doing this. Once film has been installed on a business property, the load placed on its existing HVAC systems will be reduced, and this will reduce expenses and increase their lifespan tremendously.
Enhancing Privacy and Preventing Crime
When dark or reflective films are used, they prevent outsiders from being able to see into a building, which not only enhances privacy, it can also prevent confidential information from being seen by unauthorized persons. It can also prevent opportunistic crimes such as smash and grab events from taking place, because most criminals are looking for quick and easy targets and not those where they will have to repeatedly apply force to a window in order to gain access. Many businesses that have fallen prey to graffiti being sprayed on their windows has been able to save money by only replacing the film and not the entire window each time it occurs.

Decorative Window Treatments
Many businesses change the advertising on their windows each season or to commemorate other special events such as public holidays. In the past, it would have been necessary to either paint the advertising on the windows or etch branding into the glass itself – both methods are costly to remove in the long run. Decorative window films, however, can be applied and removed easily. They are also far more affordable to create than other forms of window-based advertising, making them the perfect option for businesses that need to advertise in an economically efficient manner.
When the right window film is correctly installed, it can provide sun protection for many years. Business owners who are interested in finding out more about the various forms of commercial film that are available should not hesitate to contact our team today.
