How to Reduce Break-Ins in Dallas Retail Shops with Security Window Film

February 19, 2020 in Aggrigate, Safety And Security Window Film

When it comes to the storefronts and retail shops located in the Dallas area, business owners need to find better ways to defend their property. Due to the higher crime rate in this area, break-ins, smash-and-grab robberies, and burglaries can be a lot more prevalent. While active security systems are important for any retail shop, there are some circumstances where these options will fall short. When combining a passive security system with an active security system, all your bases can be covered. Security window film is a great way to reduce break-ins in retail shops.

The Advantages of Security Window Film for Your Dallas Retail Shop

Security window film is a great deterrent for break-ins since it makes it significantly harder to gain access to your property. When security film is installed, it causes a seriously loud commotion that brings attention to that intruder. This is often deterrent enough for reducing break-ins, smash-and-grab robberies, and burglaries. The precious time provided by installed security film is important for giving building occupants a better chance to hide or escape until the first responders arrive on the scene. Security film also provides safety from severe weather, natural disasters, freak accidents, and more. By mitigating broken glass hazards during an event, building occupants and valuables are also protected from glass shrapnel.

January 30, 2020 in Aggrigate, Energy Efficient Window Tint

With so many heat control window films on the market–it is hard to choose. Since they work through different mechanisms like reflection and absorption, they come in a variety of materials. Ceramic, polyester, and metal are the three most common. Also, every major brand has 2-6 selections in each of their series, so that adds even more options to choose from. So which ones are best? Below we picked what we consider to be their best heat control films.

Window Films That Perform Best In The Heat

Enerlogic 35: While reflective films and EnerLogic window films provide saving on cooling by blocking solar heat gain, EnerLogic window film goes a step further. It provides an additional reduction of radiant heat flow through the window from other external sources of solar heat gain. So you save even more on summer cooling bills.

3M Prestige: Many times window films that reject heat for interior temperature control are dark. The Prestige series films are non-metallic and clear. One of the first films to offer clear non-metalized film selections–3M is a brand you can trust to be an effective heat reducer for your windows.

LLumar Dual-Reflective Series: These films are more reflective on the exterior than on the interior giving you clearer views day and night. But that doesn’t mean these films aren’t tough on the heat that hits your windows. Rather, they are specifically suited for application on sunbelt homes.

Hanita OptiLite 75 Xtra: This film uses a subtle blue-colored tint to filter 88% of heat-building IR radiation. Keeping your Dallas home cooler but still letting in plenty of daylight. This “SolarZone Spectrally Selective Film” provides comfort style and blocks 99% of UV rays that cause your furniture and floors to fade.

SolarGard ECOLUX 70: One of the most advanced solar heat reducing products on the market today, ECOLUX 70 lets in 68% of natural light while keeping out a whopping 52% of the sun’s energy. This keeps more money in your pocket during warm and cold months from utility savings

Hüper Optik Therm-X Films: Using a proprietary blend of metals this high-tech film is one of the best on the market for reducing solar heat gain. It allows in a ton of visible but also dramatically reduces HVAC consumption.
