Commercial window film has seen a rise in demand in recent times as more and more businesses are using it for their premises. Apart from the desire to meet Green Building standards, there are a number of reasons why businesses have chosen to use commercial window film on their buildings.
- Window film acts as a barrier from the sun without blocking the natural light it offers. Sunlight can be really harsh and this can make a work environment extremely uncomfortable for workers. Window film makes the building cooler by blocking the heat from the sun. the sun also contains harmful UV rays which have been known to cause cancer. Window film, particularly 3M Sun Control window film can work to keep these rays outside your building.
- Window film can act as protection to your building. This can be in a number of ways. Commercial window film has a substance that holds the window together so that in the case of a bomb blast or a hurricane, there are no flying shards around. This can also come in handy if your building is the focus of a smash and grab. 3M Safety and Security window films have inbuilt adhesives to hold the windows together making it impossible for anyone to break in.
- Window film could make your building tax deductible. The Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 2005 made it possible for buildings that used certain green building materials to be eligible for tax deduction. Some 3M window films are eligible for this deduction.
