As a small business owner, you want to take the necessary steps to protect the goods you sell within your building. Unfortunately, theft is an issue that must be dealt with proactively to ensure wares do not fall into the wrong hands. The addition of shatterproof glass film to any glass pane within your building holds many benefits. Here is what you can expect if you decide to have glass film installed to improve security for your business.
Less Likelihood Of An Injury Occurring
After shatterproof glass film is applied to window and door panes within your business, you have the peace of mind of knowing any people or pets that come into close contact with these panes are not as likely to sustain an injury if a pane happens to break. If a window is smashed from the outside, the film that had been applied will hold any slivers of glass in place. They will not become projectiles and will not fall to floors. This will greatly minimize the potential of an injury to any life that is near the window when an incident occurs.
Graffiti Is Easy To Remove
If your business is located in an area where graffiti artists have been known to take up their art on buildings in the neighborhood, your glass panes will be protected against permanent damage. Shatterproof glass films can be peeled away from the panes if they become marred, and new films can be reapplied to give your panes a fresh, new appearance.
Smash And Grab Thefts Are Thwarted
When a burglar tries to get inside a building full of items for sale, they will usually grab items within close proximity and then quickly exit the building so they do not get caught in the act. Shatterproof glass film makes it difficult for a burglar to go on with their intended plans. If someone tries to smash a window with shatterproof film added to it, the shards of glass do not break free from the window at all. The person would be unable to reach through the window to gain entry to the interior of the building. This will more than likely cause the thief to move on to another building, as they will not want to spend a lot of time in one place where they are more likely to be discovered by police or someone passing by the area.
