Running a small to medium-size business comes with a lot of risks. This means you need to think long and hard about how to mitigate as many of them as you can to stay afloat.  One risk that may be right under your nose is the glass in your building.  Not only does this glass make for a weakness in your security–it can cause other issues, like injury too.  Therefore, one way to remove some of the risk in your small business in Austin is by having window film applied. 

Safety And Security Window Film To Protect From Theft

Window film is a powerful way to stop the windows on your Austin business from being penetrated should someone attempt to rob you.  Crimes of smash and grabs are rampant but are crimes of opportunity.  While the glass will still break when hit by an object, it will take numerous more blows for a  would-be thief to actually get in. Therefore, once the “quick score” aspect of a smash and grab is taken away–most criminals will just move on to an easier target.

Safety And Security Window Film To Protect From Accidents

Whether you run an Austin retail store, restaurant or other professional business– you are responsible for the safety of your patrons. Glass windows in your establishment pose a safety threat to those inside–especially if they are plate glass.  Slip and fall into glass cost business owners across the US millions each year.  In order to remove the risk of injury to your patrons and subsequent litigation–safety and security window film the way to go.  It keeps the glass in place after a fall which in turn keeps people from hurting themselves on shards of glass.  It can also prevent successful lawsuits from being filed against you since you took precautions to protect the people in your Austin establishment.

Safety And Security Film As A Tempered Glass Alternative

One part of doing renovations here in Austin and across the country is bringing your building up to code once you do so.  Old glass is often plate glass and will need to become safety glass/tempered glass if you wish to continue your renovation per the city codes.  Rather than replacing this dangerous glass completely, which could get expensive,  safety and security film can be installed for a significantly lower cost and will serve to bring your building up to code.
