We all know that window film reduces heat and glare, and also saves significantly on HVAC costs, but what most people don’t realize is that window film provides a wide range of benefits to businesses and their buildings.
In no particular order, here are just five of the benefits that we came up with.
- Lowered Inventory Replacement Costs
You’ve seen those companies that have unsightly, cracked, faded, and worn-out merchandise on display. And you don’t want to be one of them. That’s why you rotate your stock, cover your display windows, and replace inventory. Often.
Inventory replacement costs add up, especially for your stores in sunshiny states like Arizona and California, so you’ll be relieved to hear that solar window film blocks nearly 100% of UV rays from getting inside your store and harming your merchandise.
- Improved Health
We’ve all heard the advice from the Skin Cancer Foundation: wear sunscreen even on cloudy days, and reapply your sunscreen every few hours. But no one thinks to wear sunscreen indoors near a window, which is why the Skin Cancer Foundation also recommends using solar window film for your building.
Window film doesn’t have to be tinted to protect your—and your employees’—health. In fact, crystal clear films keep your building looking attractive and provide necessary UV protection to keep everyone safe.
- Increased Employee Productivity
This time of year can be very difficult for employees because the shorter days mean that they come to work in the dark, and they leave in the dark too. Studies prove that employees work better with natural light than with artificial light (and artificial light costs a lot too), so maximizing the little sunlight we have at this time of year is a good idea.
With Daylight Redirection Film, a high-tech type of window film manufactured with micro-planes like tiny prisms inside it, light will be redirected away from the floor and towards the ceiling. This extends light further into the room to keep natural light on your employees for more of their day.
- More Attention on Your Building
There’s nothing that says “out of date” like bronzed window film, and there’s nothing that says “low cost” like a facade filled with thousands of unsightly and crooked venetian blinds. Studies show that people really dislike ugly, boring structures, so updating your building with window film is sure to get you more positive attention.
In addition to the typical mirrored films building managers often use to modernize their windows, there are also video projection films, smart glass installations that change from frosted to clear at the tap of your smartphone screen, and anti-graffiti films that make it easy to keep all your glass beautiful at all times.
- Better Warmth
People often think of window films as a heat-reduction measure, but they don’t often realize that effective film can keep cold air out too!
Like a cozy, clear sweater for your windows, Low Emissivity films (called “Low E” for short) insulate your windows year round, keeping your building occupants comfortable and reducing wear and tear on your heating and cooling systems. These next generation Low E films can stop up to as much as 42% heat loss associated with the glazing.
What Does Your Building Need?
Remember, this is only a short list out of the many cost-saving improvements that window film brings to your building. Your company will probably experience even more benefits than this.
