Often, small business owners want to add a layer of protection to their business but don’t know what’s right for them. You’ve worked hard to build your business from the ground up and now you need to protect it. What if you could install security measures that not only protect you from thieves but cut your costs too? That’s where security window film comes in. It’s a cheaper method of improving your security, while also cutting costs. Take a look at how security window film can help protect your small business.
Your building can be protected from “smash and grab” thieves when you apply security window film. You need security window film because it automatically gives you an upper hand. If a perp were to try throwing a rock at your window or bust it with a bat, the window will still hold. Even if the window cracks, the security window film will hold the glass in place. This not only deters a criminal from attacking your store but could help you catch the criminal in the act. Time is very important in a robbery and any delay is better for your business. It increases the chance that the thief will move onto another target.
Protection from storms
Security window film is not the end-all when it comes to protection against natural disasters such as hurricanes. However, it is another line of defense you can add to your toolbox to help protect your small business. The security window film will help keep the glass from breaking even when there are strong winds pushing against it. It can buy you extra time when trying to escape or can be used as passive protection. We do want to stress that this does not replace the need for shutters or putting boards on your windows during a major storm. It is an added layer of protection. Putting a film on your windows will help protect them from projectiles or other flung objects during a storm. Make sure you are ready for hurricane season by bolstering your windows.
One of the bonus benefits of security window film is that you can block the sun and heat during the summer. If you choose to go with a security window film that has a tint you can easily cut down energy costs by reducing the heat in your building. This can even make employees more productive! Not only that, but because you are blocking the sun, your office furniture will fade far less quickly even with heavy use. It immediately starts to pay for itself with your electric bill, and your furniture costs. You can knock out annoying glares without changing the look of your building. The windows actually save you money invisibly. We highly recommend this if customers or employees are complaining about hot spots in the building. You get both security and the ability to save on costs.
If your business is located next to a busy street you will want to install security window film for accidents. A rock or object could be thrown at your window due to a car. Protect yourself with security window film. You can rest easy knowing that a rock won’t shatter your window and hurt your customers. Also, this can protect your employees if they happen to bump into one of your windows. In addition, it can protect you when you are carrying sharp or heavy objects through your store. You don’t have to worry about being liable for an accident with your windows.
