Large Commercial Window Tint And Decorative Film Projects Are Our Specialties
Commercial window tinting in Denver, Colorado helps protect your people and assets at a low cost while simultaneously enhancing aesthetics and branding.
Commercial window film isn’t purely aesthetic. It also offers a lot of features that can bring real benefits to your organizations. With it, you can increase worker comfort, improve security, and protect your property against vandalism. Its utility is virtually endless.
Storefronts, offices, corporate buildings, schools, and government buildings depend on commercial window tinting. It’s an affordable and easy-to-install solution that delivers the full panoply of tinted glass benefits without the associated delays or expense.
Commercial window film is a thin layer of polyethylene or vinyl that you apply to the surface of windows. Most films offer a combination of tinting, solar control, security, and decoration. However, the degree to which they offer these characteristics depends on the intended application.
Solar Control Window Tint
The purpose of solar control window tint is to reduce your heating bills and protect your people and property.
Average daylight is a spectrum of wavelengths running from long-wave infrared to short-wave ultraviolet. The visible light spectrum is sandwiched in the middle. Traditional glass windows allow all of this light to enter your building’s interiors. This causes excess heat production, photodamage to your interior decor, and harm to people’s skin.
Organizations can solve this problem by installing tinted glass containing materials that selectively intercept unwanted light wavelengths, preferentially allowing visible light to enter. However, such systems’ price is tremendous, and installing them causes massive business disruption.
By contrast, Colorado commercial window tinting and film provides enterprises with all the benefits of regular UV- and infrared-selective glass panels, but without the high overhead. Installation improves occupant comfort, protects your interiors, and reduces your cooling expenses during intense sunshine, all while preserving incoming daylight.
Security Window Film
Security window film’s purpose is to prevent glass panes from shattering or splintering in a way that could cause injury to occupants following an impact. This type of film is usually made of heavy-gauge polyethylene, able to withstand intense physical assaults, even after the underlying window shatters.
The strength of security window films varies tremendously. Traditional varieties can withstand the force of accidental heavy impacts, such as a person stumbling into a window or assaults using blunt instruments, such as baseball bats.
However, some security films are sufficiently robust to protect high-energy events, such as bomb blasts, depending on the proximity and intensity. Shockwaves may shatter the underlying borosilicate, but the window film prevents shards from flying into the interior of your buildings and causing harm. In some situations, you can use security window tinting for windows at risk of hurricane damage. Film layers applied internally and externally prevent the ejection of spall on impact with objects thrown up by the wind.
Security films are typically between 100 and 400 micrometers thick (compared to 50 micrometers for regular films) and offer additional features designed to enhance security. For instance, privacy film features a silvered tint that provides high reflectance when viewed externally while preserving outside spaces’ internal views. This type of window tinting helps to thwart criminal reconnaissance, preventing anyone from viewing your valuables from the outside.
Decorative Window Film
Decorative window films are a brilliant tool you can use to upgrade the appearance of both commercial interiors and exteriors at a low cost. They let you take a typical humdrum window and turn it into a work of art. And the best bit? You’re free to use whatever design you like. There are no limits.
Brands, for instance, often use decorative window film to set the mood in their offices. Installing graphics on interior panes transforms the atmosphere and creates a vibe distinct to the company.
Many commercial window tinting and film products in Denver provide additional utility. Frosted films, for instance, both enhances privacy and creates the impression of etched glass. And branded glass doubles up as billboard marketing.
Decorative window film also provides essential safety advantages. Some visitors, customers, guests, and colleagues might not be able to see a clear, floor-to-ceiling glass panel and may walk straight into it. Opaque decorative films help prevent this from occurring while also providing additional protection, should you subject the glass to high impact.
Commercial applications of decorative glass are virtually endless. Organizations use it for office partitions, shower doors, glass cabinets, boardrooms, and retail frontages in malls.
Graffiti Shield Films
The habits of vandals are evolving. There’s a movement away from traditional spray paints that are relatively easy to remove from glass to more permanent methods of causing damage, including etching, scratching and carving.
In response to this threat, organizations need to find cost-effective ways of protecting their assets to maintain their brands’ integrity. Graffiti shield films offer a solution. These are inexpensive sacrificial plastic sheets that you apply to glass panels, protecting them from sharp implement damage. Not only do they protect your glass in the event of a direct attack, but they also misdirect vandals. They are giving vandals the impression that they have caused substantial damage when, in fact, they haven’t.
With graffiti shield films, like many Colorado commercial window tinting and film products correcting damage is manageable. As soon as you notice etchings or paint on your windows, we peel the protective tint away from the window and install a low-cost replacement.
Removing graffiti shield films requires a unique process. Vandals cannot ordinarily remove them by hand because of how they adhere to windows, giving organizations peace of mind.
Graffiti shield films offer many of the same benefits as other types of films. Some double up as decorative window film and for solar control. Graffiti shield film also provides many of the services of heavy-duty security films, mitigating or eliminating spall ejection.
