The holiday season is in full swing, and festivities are right around the corner. Unfortunately, theft and break-ins increase around this time of year. Criminals know residents are away visiting friends and family, doing Christmas shopping, or on winter vacation, and some businesses are closed during the holidays. Statistically, most break-ins happen through windows that are easy to access.
Here are some tips to keep the glass on your home and business safe.
- Avoid leaving presents or expensive products by the window
If you plan to be away from your home during the holidays, tuck your valuables. Having expensive items in plain view of the window allows introducers to ‘grab and dash.’ For this reason, it’s best to keep your presents and expensive products hidden.
- Install shatter-proof window film
If there is an attempted break-in, security film is designed to strengthen glass, so it’s harder for intruders to enter. What would have taken them seconds to break will take a few minutes and extra effort to smash. Remember, intruders want to be quick when breaking into a home or establishment. So anything that takes them longer than a few seconds will likely have them abandoning the attempt.
Shatter-proof window film also enhances safety – because the window won’t shatter into thousands of pieces, it minimizes the chances of your family or staff getting injured by glass shards.
- Place tinted film on main windows and doors
For added privacy, you can choose from different shades of tinted window film. This decision will deter people from looking in and seeing what you have in your home or business. There is also a window film that’s reflective from the outside and transparent from the inside of the home or business. You can enjoy more privacy without compromising the view inside your residence or establishment.
Bonus tip: Consider adding solar film
One of the biggest misconceptions is that UV rays only exist during the hot summer months. Such is not the case; the light reflecting off the snow is just as, if not brighter than the light we get during the summer. Solar film helps keep heat and maintain a comfortable temperature in your home or business. This film can result in cost savings on your utility bills!
And with presents, celebrations, outings, dinners, and more, who doesn’t want to save money where they can?
Call us if you’d like to gift a window film installation to a friend or relative. And we can work out a plan with you. We hope you enjoy this special time with your loved ones. Moreover, thank you to all our Calgary clients—we look forward to serving you in 2023 and beyond!
