Do you have tinting envy? You know . . . the feeling deep in your stomach that you get when you know that your office or storefront should have window tinting like the other guys on the block? Well, maybe it’s high time that you make the investment. Remember, it is not just for looks. Rather, window tint for your office or storefront is truly an investment in your property, in your business, and in the building’s future.
Indeed, window tinting is so much more than just the ‘blacked out’ windows, the kind you probably associate with limousines and luxury cars. There are a wide variety of tinting films and materials available for use in commercial settings.
If you want to learn more, then read on. In this blog we give you a breakdown of some of the benefits you can experience by installing window tint. We also evaluate what your priorities are, or should be, when putting tinting on your windows.
1.Increased Security for Your Commercial Building
There is, of course, no guarantee that the presence of window tinting film on your windows alone will deter burglaries and break-ins. But, commercial window tint film will definitely slow down any potential intruders.
If the glass breaks, it is less likely to shatter because the film is bonded to the window with adhesive. Instead of shards flying everywhere and posing a risk of injuring occupants or damaging merchandise, the pieces will stay stuck to the tinting film.
Also, the window, bonded with the commercial window tint film, will minimize the chance of a nice wide opening for someone looking to break in. Instead, would-be burglars will have to climb around parts of the window that are still intact and push through a film covered in pieces of broken glass. Most people looking for an easy target will give up on you and move on to something less troublesome. Burglar 0, Commercial Window Tint
2.Keep Things Private
Windows allow a view of the outside world, and allow you to display items that will draw people into your shop. But at night when you’re cleaning up alone, those same windows give a fishbowl feeling as the light inside makes you and everything around you visible to the outside.
A tinted film will help give you the peace of mind that you aren’t being watched, and that the contents of your space are safe.
3.Commercial Window Tinting for Comfort, Really
Which way does your commercial building face? Do you have eastern windows that greet every sunrise (and morning shift) with a searing beam from the eye of the sun? Or does a western exposure heat up the seats in front of the windows until no one wants to sit there?
The orientation of your location is beyond your control, but you don’t need to make your employees or your customers deal with glare or heat. More efficient than shades that you have to manually raise and lower, commercial window tinting film will help keep the sun from disturbing you and your business.
4.It Can Protect Your Health
Did you know that glass doesn’t block the harmful rays of the sun? That’s right, you aren’t safe from UV rays even when you’re inside. Visible light passes right through clear glass, so it’s no surprise that ultraviolet light comes along for the ride.
If you don’t want colored film on your windows (we understand, there are times where you don’t want to have any shading) there are clear films that are just as effective in blocking out infrared (heat) and UV light. So, your customers can enjoy the sunny day without being too hot or being exposed to harmful radiation from the sun.
5.Best of All, Tinting Helps You Save Energy, and Money
You made it this far into the article. We’ve talked about the comfort, security, and health benefits of putting tint on your windows. Do you need more convincing? Alright, here we go. Window film can save you serious money on your utility bills.
See, the window film does not just prevent heat and light from getting into your premises, it also keeps it from getting out as well. Putting commercial window tint film on your windows effectively increases their power as a barrier between the inside and the outside.
In summer, your air conditioner does not have to work as hard because you don’t have as much heat constantly flooding in (in the form of infrared rays from the sun) and in the winter, you aren’t losing precious heat to the chill outside through the glass.
Commercial window tint can pay for itself in the money it saves you from spending on heating and cooling costs over the course of the first year you own it.
