3M Dinoc wood grain exterior application

Discover the Endless Possibilities of Architectural Film

By | Property or Facilities Maintenance | No Comments

We’re going to come right out and say it: your building’s surfaces are suffering from wear and tear.

Of course, this isn’t your fault. Those exterior building surfaces deal with abuse from all the destructive elements of nature, as well as the destructive elements of crowds and traffic. The interior surfaces don’t have it much better because they’re subjected to lots of physical contact on a daily basis. In addition, all your surfaces are aging. That certainly doesn’t help.

One option you have is remodeling, but remodeling a business that is open can be costly, time-consuming, and inconvenient to customers. Architectural films such as 3M DI-NOC reduce cost and eliminate demo work, thereby reducing your timeline – which is much less intrusive to operations.

In summary, this is a win in all categories and is why 24-hour-operation properties such as hotels and hospitals are adopting architectural finishes as a way forward for refresh programs.

Architectural Film – The Better Option

Architectural film, such as 3M DI-NOCgives you the ability to create the brand-new, freshly remodeled appearance you want for your customers, clients, and staff – without the hassles of a lengthy and wasteful remodeling job. Here’s an example of a recent 3M DI-NOC architectural wrap project completed by NGS:

3M-DinocMost buildings don’t really need all of their finishes ripped out and replaced. For them, a full remodel is overkill.

Instead, the majority of businesses need basic cosmetic work for some of their interior and exterior surfaces. They need a solution that’s quick, easy, and effective. In these cases, architectural film is the right solution.

If you’ve been trying to decide whether you should remodel or resurface, you may be surprised at how much architectural film has to offer.

  • A Better Budget Solution

Intelligent business owners will want to compare their options in terms of cost because, when it comes to the final price tag of a remodeling venture, your numbers might total a lot more than you expected. Resurfacing with a high-quality, architectural film like 3M DI-NOC gives you the brand-new, professional look your building needs, at a fraction of the price.

  • The Eco Wrap Advantage

Eco Wrap” is another commonly used term for architectural film. The term came about because of the film’s incredibly eco-friendly, waste-reducing capabilities. Instead of requiring you to needlessly replace materials, Eco Wraps help you resurface problem areas. This reduces your company’s environmental impact by having a zero impact on landfills, while supplying you with all the remodeling advantages you were looking for.

  • Accelerated Results

When you want something these days, you want it as soon as possible. (In fact, some people want things so fast that they don’t even have time to say, “as soon as possible” – which is why “ASAP” is now a part of everyone’s vocabulary.) If you don’t have the time to wait for a remodel of your surfaces and you need a new look ASAP, resurfacing the interior and/or exterior of your building with DI-NOC architectural film means you get the great results of remodeling in record time. In most cases, a 3M DI-NOC project can be completed overnight with no impact to operations.

  • So Many Choices

With DI-NOC architectural finishes, you have the ability to choose from a wide variety of wood, metal, stone, and textile patterns and texture combinations. Plus, with the ability to create your own customized patterns, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Whether your building needs a new, more inviting façade, new doors, reception desks, and entrance – or just a resurfacing of the downstairs elevators, a quick, affordable, eco-friendly solution like 3M DI-NOC architectural film is a long-lasting, reliable answer. Choosing an Eco Wrap instead of remodeling means you won’t be wasting time, money, or materials when you redo your building’s look.

So, really: Isn’t it about time to update those worn-out surfaces of yours?

Reduce Expenses and Improve Sustainability with Solar Window Film

By | retail, Solar control Films | No Comments

Another summer has begun and as we slog forward through the heat, it looks as though this summer could be another record breaker. Trying to keep cool at work during these excruciating summer months can be frustrating, wasteful, and very expensive.

There is a much more affordable and sustainable way to beat the heat this summer (and every summer after), rather than cranking up the AC in your building.

If you’re tired of seeing your utility bills skyrocket in the summer, maybe it’s time to think about how you can give your chillers a break and ease the strain on your budget at the same time. Maybe it’s time to find out about all the ways that solar window film can help your business.

Solar Window Film – Like Sunscreen for Your Building, The Benefits are Proven

We’ve all been told since we were young to wear sunscreen. Even writer/director/producer Baz Luhrmann wrote a song based around its proven long-term benefits. Unfortunately, no one ever mentioned how to protect your business from the sun’s damaging effects.

The sun can inflict a negative impact on your business in many ways. It can create a solar glare that impedes workplace functionality; it can cause damage like fading and cracking to merchandise or company equipment. Solar heat gain in the workplace can also put a strain on your company’s utility bill, not to mention the effects all these have on employee productivity.

Lucky for you, NGS provides one of the largest arrays of national window tinting solutions, including multiple options for solar window films. In addition, the professionals at NGS will do an assessment to determine the options that would best benefit your unique situation.

Choosing the proper solar window film can help you:

  • Minimize environmental impact
  • Lower electric lighting expenses
  • Protect assets from long-term sun damage
  • Increase productivity in the workplace

Make Decisions for Your Future

One of the most important things successful business leaders do is make decisions. The best decisions can ensure your company’s long-term sustainability and guide you into the future. In these days of record-breaking heat, finding the proper national window tinting solutions for your needs has become one of those future-minded decisions you need to make.
