Frosted Window Film Solutions

Read More

Frosted and decorative window films are a cost effective way to create privacy, branding and ambiance without breaking the budget.  These films are an economical privacy solution to your office glass partitions, walls and doors.

A 3M Milano custom pattern was installed on this conference room, keeping a clean, fresh look to this office while enhancing the desired privacy.

Window Film Depot offers over 60 designs from 3M Fasara Glass Finishes. These finishes create surfaces with the look of etched, treated or textured glass, without the inflated cost.

Reports from JLL and other agencies have shown that office retail space may continue to rise until 2018:  Average Office Rents Might Keep Rising Until 2018

With this information, utilizing the space you are either renting, or own makes a lot of sense. The client here chose to install White Matte, creating desired privacy for the individual corners and spaces, at a fraction of the cost of permanent frosted glass.

Showcase your corporate identity or logo by incorporating it into your frost or decorative film.  This company uses both a color and a frosted logo identifying their name on several doorways for their office.  While actual glass etching is more permanent, window film allows for a change or update to your logo with relative ease by replacing the film.

Another way to decorate your office without breaking the bank is with decorative patterns as illustrated with this Window Film Depot install.

Graffiti Shield

Window Film Depot is pleased to introduce our new product line of anti- graffiti films, Graffiti Shield. Any surface that can be scratched or etched would benefit with these films including glass, metal surfaces, mirrors, and buildings.

Graffiti Shield is beneficial for:

    • Educational Facilities
    • Retail Stores
    • Restaurants
    • Airports
    • Mass Transit Systems (trains, buses, etc.)
    • High Rise Commercial
    • Residential Buildings
    • Hospitals
    • Government Facilities
    • Arenas
    • Malls, and much more

Surface protection with Graffiti Shield to protect against graffiti tagging and damage, aging and corrosion, normal wear and tear, discoloration or to update the aesthetic appearance without breaking the bank. Glass Shield, Metal Shield, Mirror Shield and Custom Shield are engineered to protect these prospective surfaces effectively and economically.

Glass Shield takes the standard anti-graffiti window film a step further. In addition to protecting the glass from scratches, etching, spray paint, this film protects from acid etching, which is even more damaging to glass surfaces. The exterior coating of the film is specially coated to be acid resistant, allowing the acid to bead up to wiped off easily, without damage to the glass.

We’ve all seen graffiti etching on elevators or bathroom stalls and how it can make the office building or establishment appear run down and un-kept. At a fraction of the cost to replace an elevator or any metal surface, Metal Shield can be applied quickly and easily protecting the surface beneath it from further damage. The film layer gives the surface a new, clean appearance covering any existing damage. The film replicates the appearance of the original surface and with the proprietary adhesive, the film is not easily removed or detected by the general public.

What about the bathroom mirrors that have been vandalized, leaving the bathroom appearing unsavory? Mirror Shield is a thick opaque mirror film that virtually disappears on the existing mirror, covering vandalism and corrosion. This anti-graffiti film is also acid resistant, durable, long lasting and cost effective in comparison to replacing the mirror.

Graffiti Shield also offers Custom Shield which is designed specific to your needs including metal clad buildings, powder coated surfaces, window frames, train and bus interiors and the list goes on. Additionally, custom printing can be added to any of the Graffiti Shield films to display a message, logo or theme.

Energy Savings with Sun Control Window Film

Are you looking to save money on your energy bills and enhance comfort in your retail store while maintaining the exterior integrity of your store front? Window films can offer you an affordable solution.

The 3M Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series is designed to accomplish all of this and more.

Floyd's Barbershop
Prestige 70 installed on this retail storefront, allowing visibility in, UV rays out.

How Does it Work?

3M Prestige allows for the natural light to come in and offer high visible light transmission while the infrared rejection (up to 97%) provides significant savings and enhanced comfort. Up to 60% of the heat is rejected adding up to lower utility bills and higher energy savings. This also creates a more comfortable environment in temperature and significantly reduces glare on your computer screen. Additionally, UV reduction assists in the protection of your merchandise and furnishings from fading.

Which Film is Right for My Business?

When comparing similar shades of film, you want to look at the number you see associated with the name, such as the 3M Prestige series which is available in 20, 40, 50, 60 or 70. The smaller the number, the darker the film will be. Therefore, the PR70 is the clearest in the Prestige series and will allow up to 69% of visible light to be transmitted while rejecting the UV rays.

PR50 installed to allow the light in but the heat out!

The Prestige Series window films do not contain metal, meaning the film will not corrode over time. Additionally, this will help prevent interference with wireless and cellular signals that we all use on a daily basis.

Window film is not a one-size fits all and our knowledgeable sales professionals are ready to assist you in making the right choice for you.

In addition to keeping the bad guys out, BulletShield is designed to keep bullets out as well. BulletShield is a UL rated retrofit ballistic shield and designed to protect from natural and man-made disasters, including blast and bomb projectiles, blunt force objects (baseball bats, hammers, bricks), hand guns and other forced entry attempts.

BulletShield is manufactured in a Level 1 & 2 system. Level 1 bonds our 3/4″ ballistic shield to the outside of the existing glass using our DefenseLite SuperBond and an HD framing system. This will stop hand-gun rounds as well as forced-entry attempts. Our Level 2 system adds a second 3/4″ ballistic shield to the inside of the existing glass using the same technique. This version provides 1.5 inches of ballistic protection, which in testing contains rounds typically delivered by high-powered rifles, and it keeps the evil-doers out. BulletShield is the world’s least expensive of all tested ballistic security systems.

A common question we encounter, is BulletShield bullet proof? We prefer the term Bullet Resistant. BulletShield is a window and security film alternative turning your windows and glass into ballistic glass shields and providing top notch building security.
