Here and Dallas the population is exploding like many other places in the US and bringing with it a lot of changes–good and bad. One problem commercial buildings owners in Dallas face as the population increases is–more crime.

Another threat we face more than ever today is that of violence from guns or bomb attacks from home-grown terrorism. Although times are challenging, window film technology too has evolved. It is strong protection against many different threats and as such, window film is changing the way we protect ourselves and can be a real game-changer for retail stores.
What Types Of Threats Does Window Film Protect Retail Stores From?

Stopping Graffiti In Dallas Public Transit Outlets
Dallas is such an amazing and gorgeous city–vibrant and alive with thriving businesses and families and with such a bright future ahead of it. This Texas metropolis is big and wonderful and the epitome of what is right with Texas. This city is exactly what people mean when they say everything is bigger (and better) here in Texas. With all the people who live and work here, public transportation is a life line here to many of us. There are many options to get from point A to point be and they are often a better alternative than driving. However, one problem with the buses and trains in and around the Dallas area is the unsightly graffiti that plagues not only this Texas city–but nearly every other city worldwide. Graffiti is truly an eye sore and so completely senseless. With city budgets being so tight it may seem like that scratch, acid or paint graffiti is here to stay with us on our Dallas public transit vehicles and stations. However, at Window Film Dallas we know there is a solution that can protect these surfaces and cost effectively manage damage when it happens and that solution is called– Graffiti Sheild.
What is Graffiti Sheild?
Graffiti Shield is a sacrificial plastic or metal film that is applied over a building’s existing features: mirrors, elevators, doors, walls, windows etc. It is very thin and invisible and much harder to mark but also easily removed should vandalism occur. What’s more, the replacement of said film costs significantly less than if the city were to have the entire area replaced–saving taxpayers a ton of money.
What Types Of Surfaces Does Graffiti Shield Cover?
Graffiti Shield can cover nearly any flat surface but the three main types are listed below:
Glass Shield: Once the glass is scorn it has to be replaced to rid the glass of damage. Glass Shield film can be installed on new or un-vandalized glass and is thick enough to protect the glass substrate from potential mild to extensive damage.
Metal Shield: Metal Shield is a thick Anti-Graffiti abatement and obscuring film to be applied on existing metal surfaces to replicate the original surface appearance. It is available in Stainless Steel and Brushed Aluminum finishes.
Mirror Shield: Once a mirror is vandalized it’s rendered useless and will typically get replaced. However, the installation of Mirror Shield can prevent the need to replace the mirror and will further protect it from damage. Also, Mirror Shield covers up the corrosion with its reflective opaque properties making the mirror look new and fresh.
If one of the shields above does not describe an area you may interest in covering–especially in the public sector–contact us at Window Film Dallas to find out more about custom shield which can accommodate your vulnerable flat surface!
