As we head into the winter with longer nights approaching, business owners’ minds are beginning to turn to security options. With a greater number of hours of darkness comes a greater risk of damage to your windows – malicious acts of vandalism, drunken accidents by revellers, graffiti and commercial burglary all increase in the winter months. The good news is that there is a way to mitigate these risks by installing a security window film onto the glazing of your premises.
How security window film can help protect your business
There are a number of key benefits that window film offers when it comes to protecting your business. Here are just some of the most common reasons that people use window film products in their shops and offices to increase safety and security.
Prevent Glass Shattering
A safety window film can be applied to the outside or inside of your windows – or even both. It will hold together the pieces of glass if the window is broken, and prevent it from shattering and causing further damage, or even injuring someone. It can also be used within your premises on areas such as partitions that are made of glass. A frosted film can help to prevent people from bumping into the glazing and of course it minimises the risk of injury if the glass is ever broken.
Anti-Graffiti Window Film
If you are worried about your windows being covered in graffiti, then an anti-graffiti window film is the ideal solution for your peace of mind. It can be applied in minutes to the outside of your windows, and as well as making it more difficult for paint to adhere to the surface, if you do happen to suffer from an incident of graffiti you can simply peel the anti-graffiti window film off the window and apply a new layer in its place. It is far cheaper than cleaning off the paint or replacing the entire window.
Obscure view into store
Frosted glass is expensive to buy and replace, but it is extremely useful when you wish to obscure the view into a building. If you have a shop, then you may well have shutters to protect your main display window but other glazed areas can be covered with a security window film to stop prying eyes from looking into private areas.
Safety window film can also work along with other measures to prevent or reduce the risk of burglary. It obscures the view into your premises and makes it a lot more difficult for a thief to smash a window and gain entry due to its adhesive properties holding the pieces of broken glass together. If you have an empty shop or office building, then a security window film can be used to obscure the view inside and make the building and its contents less attractive to any passing opportunist thieves.
