10 Reasons Why YOUR Building Needs Solar Film

Solar Film, often interchangeable with the word Window Film, has significant advantages in both residential and commercial applications. However, when used commercially, the benefits increase exponentially due to the larger expanses of glass found in commercial and retail buildings. We’ve put together a list of the top ten quick facts of why a commercial building will benefit from the use of Solar Film.  It’s important to weigh each fact against any reason for not considering Solar Film for your windows. We’re sure you’ll be glad you did!

1.  Window Film can reject up to 99% of harmful UV rays protecting the employees from possible skin cancer.

2.  Window Film protects furniture & furnishings in your office from fading and losing its color, extending its life.

3.  Window Film qualifies your building for substantial utility & tax rebates and incentives.

4.  Window Film allows for natural light without compromising your privacy due to one-way viewing options.

5.  Window Film lowers air-conditioning costs and improves the overall comfort, maintaining temperature consistency.

6.  Window Film reduces glare on computers & flat-screens and improves viewing without compromising natural light.

7.  Window Film can repel flying shards of glass and protect your retail, office, and commercial buildings if windows are broken by smash & grab or natural disasters.

8.  Window Film may eliminate the need to cover some windows with additional window treatments.

9.  Window Film can protect the windows in your building from all forms of graffiti.

10.  Window Film enhances the beauty of your architecture and brings a modern elegance to your building.

With today’s new Solar Film the options are varied and the benefits are plentiful providing a building owner with more reasons for considering why Solar Film’s positive effect is beneficial!

Some of the options we carry are:

  • Anti-Graffiti Films
  • Security Films
  • Decorative films for interior design purposes
  • Classic Films
  • Night Vision Films

So, remember, Solar Film also known as Window Film can reject solar heat, reduce fading, add a layer of protection to your home, office, or retail space, reduce utility costs and enhance overall beauty — all at low cost options!

Can you see why the application of Solar Film will create value to any commercial or retail building?

5 Tips You Should Know About Child Safety and Window Coverings!

This is a RE-POST from last year, it’s always a good topic to review!

So, whether you are preparing yourself for a new baby, dealing with a young toddler, or sending off young pre-school children each morning to school, every parent should be Child Safety Aware. Especially, since each year young children are injured or die in tragic accidents related to unsafe practices at home. That said, we think it is an important practice to routinely check your living spaces in-and-around your home for potential areas of danger.

Here are a few simple action tips to get you started {from a window covering perspective} and to help you keep your kids safe and sound – right where they live!

1.  Never place a crib near a window and be conscious of furniture that a young child can climb on to where a window covering cord can be reached.

2.  Outfit window blind cords with safety tassels or consider using cordless window coverings to reduce the risk of strangulation.

3.  Get down on your hands and knees to get a child’s-eye view of your home.  Think about what might be tempting to a toddler and what’s within reach.

4.  Keep window covering cords secured out of reach with cord cleats. Professional installation by your window coverings expert is highly recommended and if not done will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

5.  Keep windows closed when young children are present. Window coverings alone are not strong enough to stop a fall. If you must open windows for ventilation, install locks that limit how far they can be opened.

Now is the time to do a quick audit around your house to make sure your home’s standards are met. But remember; when it comes to preventing home accidents involving young children, there is no substitute for adult supervision!

Because we care about your family’s well-being all of our products meet the Consumer Products Safety Guidelines and all of our window coverings have features that enhance child safety!

For more information on child safety tips or to have one of our experts come to your home for a free consultation, please call us at 805.642.2300. And, we’d really, really love it if you would FAN us on FACEBOOK and Follow us on TWITTER!
