How Security Window Film Keeps You Safe

Our windows are our crucial connection to the outside world more so now than ever. But with more tumultuous weather and civil unrest on the rise, our security window film is a sound investment to protect your windows and those around you.

Security film is a great way to protect your home or office, without the need for a costly window replacement.

What is security window film?

Security window film is a transparent film made of a heavy-duty polyester compound which is applied to your existing windows. You will never notice your security film on windowsand nor will your guests. It is completely transparent.

Security film is thicker than other films such as decorative film or standard window film, but it is still installed as quickly and as cleanly.

What does security film protect from?

Security film is a wide-spectrum window protector that can be used for commercial or residential properties. It can protect your windows from:

  • Storm debris – with our unpredictable and more extreme weather patterns, security film is increasing in popularity for its protection against storm debris. The film strengthens your windows decreasing the likelihood of damage and ensuring that any glass damage that does occur is kept safely concealed within the film.
  • Forced entry – the number one location for thieves to enter your building is through the window. Security film deters forced entry by greatly increasing the effort needed to penetrate your home.

Why window coverings such as film are the practical choice for your business

If you are looking at window coverings, film is an economical and versatile solution for your business. Whether you are looking to add logos or other details to your windows or protect your stock from sunlight damage, this quick and easy solution can do the job.

Custom-made glass or glass that has been treated to protect from UV light can be costly and is not an investment to be taken lightly by any business. Window covering film is significantly cheaper, can be easily replaced should branding be altered and can be fitted within a day.

What is a window covering film?

When people think of window coverings, film is still a relative unknown, but it is an effective method of coating your windows with protective layers or with branding or patterns. It is a thin layer, invisible to the naked eye, that is fitted onto your existing windows by an expert team.

What can window covering film do?

Film window coverings can fulfil many different needs. Depending on your business type, you may want to consider some of the following usages.

  • UV Protection: Window film can be used to filter out UV light, which is the number cause of fading. Whether your items are in storage or a shop window, sunlight can quickly make your products look unsightly, especially if they are comprised of fabric or paper.
  • Brand your workspace: You may wish to use window coverings on your exterior windows or interior glass separators or office doors. Window film can be used to easily add your brand name, logo, a slogan, or a CEO’s name in frosted glass.
  • Shortcut to privacy: Privacy glass is costly and if an area has recently been repurposed into a meeting place, you may need to install a privacy solution swiftly. Frosted window covering film can transform your space in a matter of hours and with no mess or fuss.
  • Safety: You may not have thought you needed safety glass when you first moved into your business premises, but if you have found a need for it, window covering film can protect your glass in case of an accident.
  • Anti-graffiti solution: We are fortunate enough to live somewhere that rarely experiences such issues but if you have graffiti concerns our window coverings will create an easy to replace surface that will leave your windows untouched should your business be targeted.

Why Window Film

Window coverings don’t have to be expensive or hard to fit. Our window films can be fitted in a day, with no mess or downtime needed in your workplace. Your windows will be untouched beneath the film, and the film itself can be removed or replaced whenever needed. Window film transforms your windows in an economical and environmentally friendly way, and no one will ever notice it’s there.

The importance of COVID-19 signage for your business

2020 may be drawing to a close but COVID-19 certainly isn’t. Unfortunately, it looks like the worldwide pandemic is here to stay, at least in the short-term. As a business owner, it is your responsibility to ensure customers and staff members stay safe when on your premises – COVID-19 signage helps get your message across.

We hope your business has been able to reopen but it’s unlikely to have done so under the same terms it had previously. Communicating clearly and effectively is an essential part of the process, and COVID-19 signage is a great way to remind people of what they need to do.

Show people you care

It may sound corny but showcasing what your business is doing to keep people safe will help customers and staff relax while going about their business. People want to feel safe; this can be accomplished in many ways such as keeping your premises pristine, ensuring staff are wearing appropriate PPE and showing customers and staff that you have considered the appropriate rules. In more conventional times, declaring restrictions would put your customers on edge, but during COVID, a clear explanation of what is needed will help people feel like you have considered their welfare.

Explain rules specific to your business

The rules and restrictions surrounding COVID-safe behaviors are varied and often sector-specific. If your business operates in a sector that requires close contact, involves working in someone’s home or anything else that involves specific guidance, you must convey this to customers in a way that will resonate with them. A detailed COVID policy is a necessary step but get your key points across quickly and easily with bright graphics and symbols.

Show you are taking it seriously

You could stick up a sheet of A4 with a handwritten note, but people need to know that you have reacted to the situation in a professional way that is in keeping with your business. A professional sign that incorporates your branding is a shorthand way to show how seriously and responsibly you are reacting to the situation.

COVID signage in Canada

Many provinces have created small business grants that cover any expenses you have incurred due to modifications for COVID. These can include our signage. While we can’t guarantee your costs will be covered, we are happy to provide you with any documentation you require to submit a claim.

grafitti

Benefits of Anti-graffiti Film for Business and Homeowners

Anti-graffiti film, otherwise known as anti-graffiti coating, is a cost-effective method of preventing permanent damage from graffiti on your property. It can be used on residential or commercial properties and is an effective way to minimize the cost of petty vandalism.

Graffiti can be a worry for many a business or homeowner, but it needn’t be a concern for you. Anti-graffiti, like our other films, is a quick and simple solution that can be applied to your existing windows.

How does anti-graffiti film work?

Anti-graffiti film can adhere to any glass, mirror, or stainless-steel surface. It is an invisible layer that shields your surfaces from damage. Should the worst happen, you can avoid a costly bill and/or damage to your surfaces. The film is removed, revealing the undamaged assets, which can then have a new layer of film applied.

A cost-effective solution

If you are concerned about vandalism, anti-graffiti film is a cost-effective solution. It is considerably cheaper than replacing windows or mirrored surfaces should your fears be realized. A high-quality film is durable, lasting many years before it needs to be replaced, making it a great insurance policy for your building.

Window film is an economical solution that is a fraction of the cost of a window or mirror replacement.

Effective yet invisible

The anti-graffiti coating is completely invisible to the naked eye, but don’t let this deceive you. Once applied, you may not notice your film, but it will be there providing complete protection from spray-paint, magic markers and etching. Once the film is removed, your surface will be uncovered in pristine condition, ready for a fresh coat of film for further protection.

Quick and easy to get fitted

Our anti-graffiti films, like our solar and decorative films, are fitted in a single day by our expert team. When graffiti or damage does occur, we know you want it dealt with and removed as quickly as possible. A film replacement will allow you to put the incident behind you without days of lengthy repairs or cleaning sessions.

The film is applied using a special mounting adhesive that leaves no residue on your surfaces, protecting their integrity and allowing for easy reapplication of anti-graffiti film or another film product.

Easy to maintain

All our window films are easy to maintain. There is no special treatment required to keep your anti-graffiti film sustained. You should simply wipe it down as you would a standard piece of glass and it will stand the test of time.

Benefits of Commercial Frosted Window Film

Any business with an office or shopfront can look more professional and premium by installing commercial frosted film. It isn’t as expensive as you may think and elevates any space that customers may visit.

Frosted window film for businesses isn’t a new idea, but it is one that is becoming more affordable for the small business owner. Whether you choose to display a product or a brand, the ripple effects are tangible.

Brand Recognition

We all know that branding is everything nowadays. By frosting your company logo, you help embed your branding and keep the aesthetic on and offline consistent. Display your brand name, logo, and a tagline to help solidify your brand in the minds of those who visit your office or store.

Illusion of Scale

If you are a small business owner, it is hard to compete with the bigger companies for so many reasons, yet you want to make sure you don’t get lost in the crowd. Small steps such as frosted film give the illusion of prestige and scale that you may be yet to achieve. It’s a simple case of “fake it till you make it” – the more your business looks the part, the more prestigious clients you are likely to attract.

Clients greeted by a reception completed with frosted window film with logos on it will feel they have come to a high-end and professional establishment.

Subtle yet Effective Privacy

Frosted window film is superb at letting light into an office while still providing plenty of privacy. Many clients feel self-conscious if the meeting room is simply a glass box, but strategically placed commercial frosted film will give you a bright room with added privacy.

Of course, this also enhances security by obscuring any valuables you may have on display.

Improved Aesthetics

Frosted window film is also a great investment to enhance your workspace for your workforce and clients alike. Play with ideas; use it to showcase product lines, help each department claim their own space or simply decorate in a professional and on-brand way.

Easy Redecorating

We use a high-quality frosted film which is overlaid on your existing glass. This is more affordable than traditional methods and means it can be easily updated to reflect new branding, a change in management or a new product you wish to advertise.

Caring for your Frosted Film

Frosted window film is surprisingly easy to maintain. It is durable yet easily replaceable should an accident occur. The frosting disguises fingerprints and day to day marks more than plain glass and it can be maintained by simply wiping it down as you would a standard piece of glass.

Benefits of Window Film – Fading Prevention

Every homeowner has experienced the sometimes-extreme effects that sunlight can have on your home furnishings and treasured items. One of the most easily seen benefits of window film is the dramatic reduction of fading.

An idly placed book in a sunbeam can quickly become faded, a favorite cushion in a comfy window-facing chair can look startlingly different when you turn it over. If you have ever had to think twice about where to place your bookcase to protect your books, window film is the answer.

The true cost of fading

Window film reduces fading, but you may not be aware of how or why this should matter to you. Fading is the visual discoloration that occurs on objects and fabrics that have prolonged and unprotected exposure to the sun. It can lead to costly replacements which are easily avoidable.

Furniture

Finding that matching piece of furniture is never easy, and if one piece is more sun-exposed than the others, you may find it loses its appeal quickly. A piece that once completed your décor can fade, leaving it a different and unmatching shade from your other pieces.

Mismatching furniture can eventually lead to the replacement of pieces. Window film is a cost-effective alternative that keeps your furniture in its original state for longer.

Soft Furnishings

Furnishings are so often bought to complement or match each other, and as such, the particulars of the shade can make a dramatic difference to your room’s overall aesthetic. If you have one chair, and therefore set of cushions, more window-facing, over time, you will end up with a set that no longer matches.

There is nothing more frustrating than replacing a whole set of cushion covers or a rug because a small part is discolored. Benefit from window film in your home – replace soft furnishings when you want to, not because of fading.

Floors

Whether your flooring is wood or carpet, it too can become faded from the sun. If you have spent time and money on a hardwood floor or just fitted a new carpet, keep it looking its best. Your flooring was likely a sizeable investment and as such, you should protect it.

Window film fading protection will keep it looking its best for years to come, with a continuous color throughout.

Treasured items

Whether you are a bibliophile, an avid art collector or simply have a bright toy-filled nursery for your child, we all naturally put our treasured items in the best light. Leaving these items on the windowsill or on shelving that faces the sun can irrevocably destroy the items we love most.

You can keep your items safe by strategically placing them in places the sun doesn’t reach, but by installing window film, fading becomes a thing of the past, allowing you to showcase the items you truly love.

Environmental Benefits of Window Film

Leaving less of a carbon footprint is an ethical concern for many proactive people and is becoming easier to act on as technology evolves and becomes more cost-effective. We all know home upgrades such as insulation can reap both financial and environmental benefits, but there are also sizeable environmental benefits to window film.

If you are a homeowner, window film is an easy and quick way to reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the heat that enters your home. Of course, by the same measure, you will be dramatically reducing your air conditioning energy consumption, providing a tangible benefit for your wallet as well as the environment.

Temperature Moderation

Window film is becoming increasingly essential in our part of the world. With seasonal temperatures fluctuating from one extreme to the other, it is hard to keep your home comfortable for you and your family.

In recent years, our Summers have been unusually hot, with many running air conditioning more than they would like. Window film reduces the heat entering your home, minimizing how hard and how long you will need to run your air conditioning units. By reducing your cooling needs, you will experience a more temperate house, and prolong the life of your air conditioning units. You will also experience that warm glow that comes from knowing you are helping the environment.

Less Landfill For all our strengths, Canada is not the greatest at recycling. If it is time to replace your windows, there are environmental benefits to window film being installed on your existing windows instead. We all want windows that are highly effective but replacing them leads to more wastage in the form of your existing windows and more fuels used in the production of your new windows. Film is the green alternative, allowing you to extend the use of your existing windows, and using minimal energy in its creation. For more information on making your home greener click here.
