Opening your first business or expanding to another location is a thrilling event in the lives of any business owner, but after the initial brand-new, fuzzy feelings that come with your new location wear off, it’s time to take a hard look at the interior of your space to ensure customers are comfortable and feel safe in your commercial space. One of the best ways to instantly improve indoor aesthetics and comfort levels in a business location is to install a layer of protective window film against the surface of your glass. Here’s how it can help improve your customer’s experience of your business and benefit from window film:
Reduced Heat Gain
No one likes the feeling of sitting down next to a sunny window and realizing within a few minutes that the heat radiating through is causing them to perspire. By sealing the window pane, window film can reduce solar heat gain and prevent generated heat from your HVAC system from escaping through the panes, saving you money on your energy bills over the long term.
Block Harmful UV Rays
Modern window film treatments can block as much as 99% of UV rays, which can cause skin cancer and melanoma. Furthermore, UV rays radiating through your windows can cause furniture, artwork, and flooring materials to fade prematurely, so if you have interior decor you’d like to see last more than a few years, window film is a wise investment.
Decreased Glare, Increased Comfort
Especially in the case of restaurants, coffee shops, or retail shops, it’s important that your customers don’t feel blinded, distracted, or uncomfortable while visiting your place of business. A layer of window film will drastically reduce glare both inside your shop and out, improving visibility indoors and offsetting dangerous glare for drivers passing by.
