THREE WAYS WINDOW FILM CAN IMPROVE FACILITY OPERATIONS
We found this article written by Michael Mancini for FacilitiesNet about the three ways that window film can improve facility operations. to summarize the article, the three ways are as follows:
Reduces Energy Costs: When window film is installed, the stress on the HVAC system can be greatly reduced. Window film can help keep cool air inside during summer months and limit heat loss during the winter months. These benefits can ultimately result in lower utility costs for facility managers while still keeping a building comfortable for the occupants.
Improves Safety Measures: Windows and doors are any building’s main point of entry, even for those who are uninvited. Safety window films can help reduce property loss and damage in the event of a burglary attempt by making it far more difficult for criminals to penetrate the building through glass doors and windows. Also, in the unlikely and unfortunate event of a natural disaster, act of terrorism or an extreme weather event, safety & security window film can help minimize damage to building occupants and facility property.
Increases Productivity for Occupants: Window film lets in natural daylight, but blocks 99 percent of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays as well as up to 82 percent of the sun’s heat. The sun beaming in through the windows with its harmful UV can also be harmful to the building’s occupants. Window film can help solve these issues and make it easier for employees to get their jobs done comfortably.
