What is window security film 

Let’s start with what window security film is and how it works. Window security film is installed the same way as a standard window film. It has an adhesive side that is applied directly onto the glass surface, just as a standard window film. The biggest difference between standard window film and security film is the thickness.

Security film is significantly thicker, and as you can probably imagine, the thicker the window security film is, the harder it is to get through. Applying window security film strengthens your glass by 2-3 times, which is a great security addition in cases of break-ins and natural disasters. If the glass does face impact, the window security film holds the shattered glass together, greatly increasing safety. 

An added benefit of security film is the different options you have. Not only does it strengthen glass and prolong forced entry time, but it can also increase privacy. Security film comes in a clear, reflective, and a solar option. We wrote another blog called Types of Security Window Film that you can check out if you are interested in learning the specific details and specs of the different security film options you have. 

How window security film can benefit a business


Now onto the important window security film can benefit a business. Like we said earlier, window security film is often used to protect businesses from intruders, looters, and natural disasters. If safety is a concern for your business, one of the biggest benefits of window security film is that it prolongs forced entry time. What that means is it’s going to take longer for someone to break through the glass, which allows more time for help to arrive and to catch the intruder. 

Not only does window security film prolong forced entry time, but it also helps hold shattered glass together. If there is a break-in or natural disaster while people are in your building, window security film will minimize injuries from shards of glass, which is a major benefit. As a business owner you, want to make sure that not only is your business protected from accidents, but your employees and customers are too.    

We briefly mentioned earlier how security film can also increase privacy. There is a reflective security window film option that essentially looks like a mirror when it’s installed. People inside your building can still see out, but people walking by won’t be able to see in. Increasing privacy in this way ultimately will increase safety and security because outsiders won’t be able to see into your store and see any products or valuable items you might have. 

A lot of businesses usually have some sort of existing security system, whether it’s a security camera or an alarm for safety purposes. A lot of business owners, especially right now, are looking for ways to step up their security game and have never heard of security film. Window security film is an easy and affordable addition to your already existing security system to help keep your business protected 24/7 and ultimately give you peace of mind that no matter what is going on in the world, your business and your space is protected.

What is anti graffiti film

Anti graffiti film is another window film product that Solar Art carries that offers preventative solutions for business owners. Anti graffiti film is installed the same way as window security film. There is an adhesive side that is applied directly onto your glass surface. Anti graffiti film is a clear window film product that isn’t going to change the look of your space.

This means that vandals, current customers, potential customers, or people simply walking by your building are going to have no idea it’s there. Anti graffiti film is also thicker than a standard window film and protects against vandalism such as graffiti, etching, scratching, and more.

How anti graffiti film can benefit a business 


Solar Art frequently installs anti graffiti film to business storefront glass, as storefront glass is the most common target for vandalism. Storefronts are usually large pieces of glass that are easily accessible to vandals. Businesses are often in high trafficked areas where people are constantly coming and going, making your glass more susceptible to damage.

The great part about anti graffiti film is that if your glass does get tagged, the anti graffiti film is what takes on the damage, not your glass. In the case vandalism does occur, anti graffiti film can easily be removed and replaced with no damage to the glass. Our installation crew can go onsite as soon as possible and replace the damaged window film with a fresh new layer. 

The problem with vandalism is that it typically doesn’t happen only once and it’s practically impossible to know when a vandal is going to strike. If your business does get vandalized it becomes a target. This can be incredibly frustrating as a business owner because you can’t be on the building 24/7. It’s frustrating to have something you worked so hard for constantly getting vandalized and damaged.

If your building is no stranger to vandalism, then you are probably aware of how expensive it is to constantly replace the glass. What you might not know is that replacing anti graffiti film is a fraction of the price of replacing the glass itself. If your glass does get tagged you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank trying to get your curb appeal back. Anti graffiti film is an affordable solution to protecting your glass 24/7 from vandalism so you can go back to doing what you love without having to worry.
