3M window film solutions appropriate for business premises.

Commercial Buildings

Commercial Buildings safety trends

Businesses face specific safety and protection issues and challenges when it comes to windows. Retail outlets often have merchandise or produce on view a target for the sun's UV rays as well as unscrupulous human beings.

Forced entry and smash and grab theft, a worry for many commercial building owners, can be cost effectively dealt with using 3M safety and protection film. The integrity of the window is maintained by the film even after considerable force and attempts from burglars.

Retail outlets as well as commercial offices, particularly in recent times are under threat from rioting and civil unrest. Commercial buildings often take the brunt of enraged civilians with breaking and entering, theft or property and wanton damage - the buildings that don't get compromised are the ones with window security film.

Health and safety compliance should be high on the agenda of commercial organisations with staff and customers, 3M safety film can prevent injury in the unfortunate event of glass being accidentally broken or fell into, drastically reducing a company's liability in these situations.

Commercial Buildings solar trends

There are also a selection of issues that arise for commercial organisations with regards the sun. Occupant comfort should be a priority for people responsible for commercial buildings. 3M solar control films silently manage room temperature due to their control of the suns energy, making retail stores and offices, a comfortable environment to work or visit. The same films can further improve customer and staff surroundings by reducing the suns glare whether it be on monitors or generally through windows and apertures.

3M solar control films provide significant energy savings by reflecting solar energy outwards in the summer and retaining warmth in the winter. This results in air conditioning and heating not having to work so hard, and therefore utility costs coming down.

As previously mentioned merchandise, produce and also furniture are under threat from the sun's UV rays, the single largest contributor to colour and pigment fading. From a butchers meat in the shop window to a corporate buildings carpet and clothes in a retail stores display, 3M solar control film can drastically slow the suns natural fading process.
