In our line of work, window film installation, we apply window film to various commercial businesses: museums, bars, hotels, transit stations, offices, and many others.  But, one of the spaces we use window film for a lot is retail locations.  Window film works so great for these types of Austin businesses because of the sheer amount of benefits that help retail stores succeed.  If you are a retail store owner in or around Austin,  read below to find out how various types of window film or tint can help your shop.

Why Window Film is the Perfect Fit for Austin Stores

Retail locations here in Austin and all across the country for that matter will benefit from window film because it addresses their unique challenges.

Decorative Window Film for Branding 

It is critical to stand out from other retail locations here in Austin–where there are quite a few cool little shops (sometimes side by side).  Having window film installed is a great way to create a fun, colorful, and unique display that will help you capture those passing by.  Since decorative window film is 100% customizable, you can use it to easily incorporate your website, hours of operation, and niche merchandise information all in an eye-catching way.

UV Blocking Window Film for Protecting Merchandise

One of the biggest threats to your store’s products is the UV rays beaming through windows and degrading the products on display.  For this reason,  UV blocking window film is an excellent way to help stores avoid losses from merchandise ruined by the sun. These films block the sun’s harmful radiation that fades, melts, and generally deteriorates products through your windows. 

Security Window Film to Prevent Theft

Break-Ins are a threat for any retail location–especially small ones.  Austin is a safe city but smash and grabs on storefront windows still happen.  By having any type of window film installed you also get an added layer of security from break-ins because the glass will stay adhered to the film even after a strike.  If you are looking for even stronger protection then specialty security films, security window frames, and C-Bond adhesive are what you need for a more powerful solution.
