Solar Art installed window security film to a pharmacy in Los Angeles, California! This pharmacy is an integrative pharmacy that sells traditional health products as well as holistic remedies and supplies. They are located on Sunset Blvd. which, if you aren’t familiar with the Los Angeles area, is a really busy street. They have customers coming in and out throughout the entire day and their store gets really busy. Seeing as they are a pharmacy, there is obviously a lot of medication held there. The pharmacy has interior glass windows that separate the customers from the pharmacists and the pharmacy area. The customer was looking for a way to add security mainly to the interior glass, but to their store as a whole. They wanted to ensure that the medication was as safe as possible in case of an intruder or break-in. A friend of one of the pharmacists told them about security window film and how they have it installed to glass in their store for added security. The customer did some research and became really interested in security film, so they called up Solar Art to get a free quote! Our sales representative met the customer on site to show them samples of security window film so they could feel the thickness and explain the benefits to see if it would be a good fit for their pharmacy.
Window security film is a clear window film that is installed directly onto glass surfaces. It is optically clear, which means people won’t even be able to tell it’s there. This is great for the pharmacy because both the employees and the customers still need to be able to see out of the glass. Security window film comes in different thicknesses. The thicker the security film, the harder it is to get through. Window security film strengthens your glass by 2-3 times and prolongs forced entry time. What this means, is it will take more time for an intruder to break through and allows more time for help to arrive. Not only does security film strengthen glass, it helps hold it together and prevent shattering if it does get hit. This will greatly increase safety for people in the store if an accident does occur. Window security film is typically installed with a silicone attachment for added security. The silicone attachment adds even more strength to your glass in case of an accident or intruder. An added benefit of window security film is it blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays. These are the ultraviolet rays responsible for sun fading. This benefit doesn’t necessarily pertain to this customer because this is interior glass. However, if you had security film installed to exterior glass like a storefront, you would have added protection against sun fading. Security window film is frequently installed to protect against intruders, natural disasters and to increase safety if glass does get struck. The customer decided that window security film was exactly what they needed for their store and had it installed to all the interior glass. As you can see from the photos, you can’t even tell the security window film is there, but the customer now has peace of mind that their store is protected. In addition to security film, Solar Art also services solar film, decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film and building wraps.
