What are the Benefits of Security and Safety film for glass?

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Existing glass, with the exception of tempered glass, is typically not designed to resist wind-blown debris, vandalism, forced entry, explosions, falls, or any other kind of event that puts sudden and undue force upon the glass. If a pane of glass shatters it can break into deadly shards endangering anyone in the film

Most glass injuries are caused by accident with people inadvertently colliding with glass panes. While modern windows and panes are typically made out of tempered glass, there is still a vast amount of easily breakable, unsafe glass. Fortunately, there is a solution. If you own a building or house with unsafe glass, or glass that you have reason to believe may be at risk of being attacked by people or the elements, you should consider installing safety or security film on your glass.

Safety film is a coating designed to prevent glass from shattering in the event that it is broken and to safely hold it in place. Available in a variety of strengths, safety film is typically retrofitted to existing windows, forming an invisible protective membrane on the interior side of the glass. When stress, such as an unexpected fall or a deliberate blow causes the glass to break, the film absorbs the energy preventing shards of glass from becoming lethal projectiles, or at least severely mitigating their force.

Security film operates under essentially the same principles as safety film, but protects to a much higher degree. Security film can be used to protect glass from shattering under extraordinary circumstances, protecting windows from breaking during earthquakes, hurricanes, and bomb blasts. While not typically used in residential homes, large commercial structures, especially in areas prone to stress from the elements or attacks by heavily armed vandals and terrorists, can greatly benefit from security film’s added protection.

American Solar Tinting is a leading name in the window and glass tinting and film industry currently, and specializes in the installation and maintenance of safety and security window films that make your windows safe and secure without compromising their clear luster. With 5 convenient locations, glass security is easy with American Solar Tinting.

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.
