Increase Productivity in your Baltimore Business: Solar Window Tinting

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

As any business owner knows, the productivity of your employees is the key to your overall success. But even in an everyday office setting, there are many distractions that can negatively affect the performance of your employees. Smart businesspeople know that eliminating those distractions can make a big difference in the long run. American Solar Tinting can provide your Baltimore business with countless window tinting benefits that will boost office productivity and help your company stay on top.

What are the benefits of solar window tinting?

Chances are, your employees often have to be at their computers for the majority of the day. While natural light in an office can contribute to an airy, open feeling, if that light causes a glare on a computer or television screen, it can become difficult to see. With solar window tinting, you can still reap the benefits of natural light while getting rid of distracting glares. American Solar Tinting can customize your tinting treatment to serve your Baltimore business’s specific needs.

Over the long term, employees might find it distracting or irritating how prolonged sun exposure causes their office furniture to fade. With solar window tinting, the sun will not be able to damage surfaces in the office, keeping your employees happy and everything looking as good as new.

Solar window tinting also offers many health benefits, in addition to its productivity-positive results. Solar tinting blocks up to 99% of UV rays, which have been linked to skin damage and disease. If your employees do not have to worry about their health, they can focus instead on the work at hand. Solar window tinting is a good idea in general because it can contribute the overall security and privacy of your building.

Storm Season and American Solar Tinting

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Storm Season

We have now reached mid-July and summer is really in session. As the temperatures rise and the atmosphere becomes unstable, summer storms are inevitable. We are also in the midst of hurricane season and have already seen the likes of one storm. With so many storm threats during this time, it’s important to protect yourself, your family, and your home as best as you can. One of the ways you can help protect your family and home is by installing security and safety films on your windows.

 

As winds pick up during heavy storms, the chances of destruction increases. High winds can cause tree branches to break off and become airborne. High winds can also cause other debris and everyday items like patio furniture and grills to become airborne as well during a severe storm or hurricane. These heavy items have the potential to hit a window and shatter it. Once the window is shattered, your home is left vulnerable to even more damage than has already been caused. More debris can make its way into your home through the opening in your window while water damage can occur due to the rain exposure. The best way to eliminate this risk is to install safety window films.

 

Safety window films will work in a number of ways to protect your family and home. Safety and security films add another layer of protection to your windows, making it difficult for the window to shatter. If the window does happen to shatter, the film will then hold the glass fragments in place. This will prevent injury from the class as well as protect your home from the outside elements.

 

American Solar Tinting offers the highest quality security and safety films for your home this storm season. Installation is simple and quick while still being effective and efficient. We are also authorized distributors and applicators of a number of high quality window film products.

 

To protect your family and home this storm season, call American Solar Tinting today at 1-800-0100. You can also visit our contact page for an online contact form as well as the numbers for each of our 5 locations.

Reasons for Glass to Break

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Breaking Glass Causes

Safety and security film is helpful and important for just about anyone who lives or works in an area that includes glass windows or doors. The purpose of these films is to hold the shards together if a break should occur, as well as make it more difficult for the window or door to break in the first place. You may not think glass can break that easily, but it happens more often then you realize. There are several reasons that could cause glass to crack and shatter, putting you and your family in danger of serious injury. Some reasons for the breakage to occur include:

  1. Accidents- Human error is an often cause for glass to break. Children playing in a yard or in the house could throw a ball of some sort to cause glass to shatter. Falls can also cause glass to break, putting individuals in harm’s way.
  2. Theft- Unfortunately, glass windows are easy access to a home for a thief. A criminal can use a blunt object to break a glass window or door to gain access to your home and belongings.
  3. Weather- Natural weather systems and disasters can make owning glass windows and doors very dangerous. Debris from high winds can cause glass to not only break, but become airborne projectiles. Earthquakes can also cause glass windows to shatter.
  4. Stress- Glass can be put under different types of stress that can result in a break or crack. Twisting, impact, tensile, thermal, and mechanical flexing stress can be causes for breaks in glass.

With safety and security films by American Solar Tinting, family members and coworkers are protected from shattering glass. Our films hold the glass together to prevent the shards to spread across the floor. They also make the shattering and breaking process more difficult, reducing injury and deterring criminal acts. American Solar Tinting uses only the highest quality materials and installation is done in a way that is quick yet efficient.
