By now, you’re aware of the many benefits of window films. These films can be cut to order and professionally installed in order to improve your windows and glass doors in any building, commercial or residential. The UV filtering films help protect belongings and lower cooling costs. The safety films help decrease the risks of broken glass if the window is ever struck. Decorative film can help increase privacy or be used for a whole host of marketing causes. There is one more important use for these films, however. If your commercial building is in an urban area, you may have found yourself dealing with graffiti. Graffiti and vandalism are an unfortunate reality of the world, but thankfully anti-graffiti film can help take the edge off of it.
What Is Anti-Graffiti Film?
Anti-graffiti film is a transparent film covering that goes on window glass to offer protection from graffiti and other forms of vandalism. The clear film will not block any of the visibility through your windows but does protect the glass surface from etching, scratching, and paint. In fact, most people will not even be able to tell that there is even a film coating your windows. The surface of the film creates a block that protects the glass as the film absorbs the damage. Finally, this anti-graffiti film can be applied to more than just glass, including metal surfaces.
How Is It Installed?
The installation process for anti-graffiti film is very similar to other types of window film installation (and like those other types of films, the installation is best left to the professionals and not DIY’d). first, the technician will thoroughly clean the window. The glass surface has to be free of all dirt, grime, and debris for the film to stick. The glass is then completely dried with soft clothes and the films are custom cut to the window dimensions. The film has an adhesive side that adheres to the surface with a special fluid, and finally the technician will squeeze the fluid out so that the film adheres completely without any bubbles.
What Are The Benefits?
The benefits of anti-graffiti film are pretty obvious: the film protects your windows so that you don’t have to replace them (which is very expensive) if they are ever vandalized. Since it can be applied to glass and metal surfaces, you can also protect steel and aluminum surfaces, like elevator doors. You could even apply this film to complete equipment, like vending machines. Finally, like most window films, in the event that the glass ever shatters, the film will help to contain the shards.
