When you are running a business, you have a certain degree of responsibility to your employees. Providing reasonably safe accommodations (within the scope of your line of work) is one of them. For example, you would never want your employees to come in on a Monday morning and discover smashed windows, missing computers, and empty cash registers or safes. This would be a disaster for a number of reasons. First of all, you have lost an untold amount of money and infrastructure. On top of that, your employees now feel uncomfortable and violated. This can lead people to seek employment elsewhere. Let’s take a look at how to protect both your business and your employees from break-ins.
Unfortunately, even if you install a security system, some burglars are familiar enough with how much time they have when they trip off an alarm to get in, get what they want, and go. To add another layer of a deterrent in order to prevent them from getting in. If you add a security film, a flexible, transparent, and tough film that will help hold the glass together against under impact from say, a hammer, a crowbar, or any of the blunt instruments that tend to be used for breaking into the businesses or homes.
When someone tries to break a window that is protected by this film, it tends to cling together, thus delaying the burglar’s ability to gain access to the building. These few minutes may be enough for the burglar to decide that the break-in is not worth the effort. Not only that, you’ve slowed them down which creates more time for the police to show up.
Security film also offers the benefits of being able to tint your windows if you prefer. This can keep nosy people from seeing what goes on in your office building. Before a break-in, many burglars will make notes about when people are out of the office, and what might be worth taking. This is a great way to prevent break-ins before they even happen, which is infinitely preferable to dealing with them after the fact. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
As professionals in the world of glass of all kinds, Team Acme has protected glass of all kinds from the tinted windows of luxury cars to the bay windows of big businesses. We would be happy to help you with a consultation, recommendation, and installation of a security film that will help make sure you can rest easy every night after you go home. There’s no reason to toss and turn over your business’s security, get in touch with Team Acme by calling (702) 566-8326 or by contacting us online, where you can browse through photos and writing about our previous work.
When you have a slew of company vehicles and countless drivers, a small crack or chip on one of the windshields can easily go unattended. One of your drivers might think that a minor crack won’t affect the overall window, but it can soon turn into a more significant issue.
To keep your company vehicles in top condition, you should know how to take care of them. The following preventive measures will help protect your vehicles and the safety of your employees while they are out on the job.
In a rocky climate like the Nevada area, rocks on and around the roads are just as common as the deserts that surround them. Just as common in a city that is populated with infrastructure, are work trucks heading towards and leaving construction sites.
The windshield is also the most common place on a vehicle to find a crack or chip because it is the part of the vehicle that acts as a support system. A tiny rock chip that hits your windshield on the way to a job site might seem too small to pay attention to, but it shouldn’t be. As soon as you hear a thump sound hit the windshield, you need to take action. Once a windshield is exposed to a chip, the chip can grow with the buildup of dirt and debris resulting in a costly replacement.
You can prevent your company vehicles from getting cracks and chips by not driving behind dump trucks or other heavy-duty construction trucks. Also, check weather reports before heading out to a job to steer clear of potential storms where hail or other debris is expected. When possible, park company vehicles in parking garages or away from high-impact areas like busy streets. To keep yourself and passengers safe, have a crack or chip checked out after the first sign of impact.
Stop the crack right in its track and get it checked out immediately. The window glass, if faced with any form of impact, it is likely to break, resulting in an expensive repair and potential injuries to the passengers.
If a crack has formed, reframe from using your windshield wipers. Passing the wipers over a crack or chip can cause more dirt and debris to embed inside the crack.
Finally, you should leave your vehicle repair to the professionals. At Team Acme, our experts will examine your windshield and tell you which repair will be best for your vehicle. If a replacement is needed, we will walk you through the process. We also offer a chip warranty on our repair jobs to make sure our customers are always satisfied with the results.

When you think of adding a feature to your business’s security system, window films may be the last to cross your mind. However, security films are widely adapted by several businesses as a measure to keep their working environment comfortable and safe. The following are ways in which security films can assist in protecting your business.
Window films allow people inside to see what’s going on outside, but outside bystanders can’t see what’s on the inside. (Well, only if they walk up so close to the window that they become hard to miss.) Most businesses utilize window films on the ground floor, or most of the time, they apply the films to the entire building for the sake of aesthetic consistency.
Security film not only provides privacy to stop thieves from looking inside the building, it also provides an additional layer that strengthens the window glass. So if a robber or criminal tries to break in, it’s more difficult to shatter or break the glass. The thicker the film, the more protection it provides.
If you have a glass door or storefront window that might be susceptible to vandalism, installing a window film can make it easier to repair damages. Generally, insurance companies don’t cover the outside body of window glass; they just cover the inside part that is usually unaffected by vandalism. By installing window films, you can take matters into your own hands and won’t have to lose money on replacing the glass yourself.
Window films are generally clear in nature, but tinted options are also available. Tinted window films can help reject heat and keep your building cool. That will in turn lower your electric bills, especially during the summer when temperatures and humidity are extra high in some areas. Using window films can help save you thousands of dollars in cooling costs.
The sun doesn’t just bring in unwanted extra heat during the summer; exposing your office furniture to sunlight can cause damage over time. The cost of purchasing office furniture is increasingly high nowadays, due to the technological advancements most furniture brands are utilizing. To stay away from having to spend more on updating furniture, invest in window films to protect your furniture from discoloration and looking worn in a short amount of time.
Studies have proven that workers are more productive on a daily basis when they’re content in the environment they’re working in. This is generally the case when it comes to working in an office building with a regulated temperature. Window films can allow employees to focus on the work at hand, rather than worry about the heat.
Guarantee Your Company’s Safety
Whether you want to protect your company’s privacy, expenditures, furniture, or protect it against theft and vandalism, window films can come to your rescue. At Team Acme, we use a precise application process and offer a security film warranty to make sure our customers enjoy the top-notch quality they deserve.

This is especially true if you are talking about the vehicles of your business fleet. Window tint is designed to not only provide a cooler vehicle interior and increased privacy, but also to protect your vehicle’s interior from sun damage. The key to avoiding a bad tint job is to use a provider that not only is experienced but who uses the best available tinting material and takes the time to ensure that the job is one right the first time, every time. Let’s look at three important tips you should keep in mind when you are choosing a window tinting provider, be it for your personal vehicle or the vehicles of your business fleet. Later we will look at why you should choose our crew at Team Acme to take care of your car window tinting needs.
One of the most important things in making sure that you get a great tinting job is to ensure that the glass is prepared properly. This is especially important if it is a returning job where previous tint film needs to be removed and the glass stripped clean in order for the new film to be applied. The tinting technician should ensure that the glass is prepared using a multi-step method and that when the old tint is removed that there are no traces of it or the adhesive compound remaining at all. Even the slightest hint of adhesive will more than lily lead to a cracking or peeling of the new tint. Unlike other tinting shops, we don’t cut corners to save time or lower the job cost. We have always used the industry standard process for removing the old tint, and we always will. When preparing the glass for application of new film, we use only approved cleaning solutions and methods to ensure that the surface is in its best condition prior to film application. It takes a little longer and is more labor intensive, but it’s the right way to do it, and we wouldn’t ever think to do it any other way.
Even after the glass is properly prepared, it’s important to make sure that the new film is applied with the proper procedures or it will peel, slide, crack, or bubble. This is where most “low cost” tint shops create issues for the customers. Yes, the job may look good when you pick up the car, and it may even be OK for a few days or even a few weeks, but eventually, those cut corners are going to catch up to the job and the tint will start to fail. We use the approved tinting application procedure that is used by the leading tint shops in the country and which utilizes the multi-step approach that gets the best results. We want your tinting job to look as great and be as perfect on day 365 as it is on day 1 when you pick up the car from our shop. We feel this way not only because it’s good business, but because we know that your vehicle and it is safe and comfortable operation is important to you, your employees, and your family. We make sure you have the dependable quality that we would want for ourselves.
Another way that “low cost” tint shops offer you such a so-called great deal is that they use lower end tinting material. This tint may look good and may even be effective for a while, but it will soon start to bubble, peel or crack. They will try to tell you that all film is created equal and that it’s the adhesive and the process that matter, but this is not true. We use only SunTek’s Carbon Series for most applications and SunTek’s Carbon Nano Hybrid for high-end applications. The old saying about baking a loaf of bread is “start with the best ingredients to get the best tasting bread” and we believe that the same idea applies to every job we do at Team Acme.
In addition to your auto window tinting needs, we can also help you with all of your other window tinting jobs. We can do residential tinting, business tinting, and even recreational vehicle tinting. No matter if you need tinting for privacy, climate control, security, or graffiti protection we should be your first call.

Las Vegas is a beautiful place to do business, but also potentially dangerous. There are few things that can make your heart sink more than walking up to your business and seeing the windows smashed. There’s darkness on the inside, there’s bits of glass all over the ground. You know that you haven’t just lost whatever the burglars and vandals stole. You’ve lost the repair costs. You’ve lost the time you wanted to spend making a profit. You’ve lost the sense of safety and security you and your employees should feel whenever you are at your place of work. Team Acme doesn’t want to see you go through this. That’s why we offer security film, which is an ingenious guard against smashed windows both from bad weather, simple accidents, and malignant vandalism. This security film is a great way to add an extra layer (literally) to your security system even if you already have strong locks and a good alarm system.
Security film is a thin, strong transparent layer of material that bonds tightly with the glass surface it intends to protect. It virtually eliminates permanent damage caused by scratching, scuffing, keying, or just the ordinary accidents that comes with living and working near windows and glass.The film protects the glass by absorbing some of the impact made by blunt impact against the window.
Security film offer benefits even if the vandal smashes the window with multiple blows. The film holds the pieces of glass together even after it has been smashed. That means less damage caused by flying glass. That means a safer and easier cleanup and replacement process. The burglars may not able to gain entry to your business. If the broken window they planned to step through is just a web of glass shards held together by security film, they may give up and go away. Not only that, it takes longer for glass with security film to be broken. That’s more time for a good Samaritan to call the police. That’s more time for officers to arrive. With security film, you give yourself a better chance of coming out ahead in a bad and dangerous situation.

At Team Acme, we’ve been offering a variety of auto glass repair and replacement services for a number of years in the Las Vegas area. Heated back window replacements stand among the more complicated auto glass repair services we offer.
When you’re replacing the back glass of your vehicle, you’re often dealing with an array of complicated components that should only be handled by a reputable auto glass replacement provider. The following are a few questions that we’re frequently asked.
Common Questions Related to Back Window Replacements
Many vehicle owners may not realize that a properly installed, and urethane bonded back windshield helps to contribute to the overall structural integrity of your vehicle. While it’s often the windshield that is referenced when discussing vehicle strength and auto glass, this also extends to the rear window glass.
The amount of time before you drive your vehicle after a heated rear window replacement varies greatly by manufacturer. This time can range from 1 hour to 24 hours, or more before your vehicle is considered safe to drive and has met Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
Unfortunately, due to the way that heated back glass is manufactured, it cannot be repaired because of the crack. Attempting to repair a heated back window can result in serious injury, because the repair can cause what is known in the auto glass industry as a “hot spot (or short)” in the rear glass that can eventually cause the glass to explode.
After having your heated back window replaced, it’s important to avoid high pressure sprays for at least 24 hours. While rain or hand washing your vehicle shouldn’t be a problem after installation, higher pressured sprays should be avoided for at least 24 hours to ensure that the urethane adhesive used to mount the rear glass has properly cured.
At Team Acme, our experienced auto glass technicians constantly keep up with the latest trends and methods of auto glass repair and replacement. This includes ensuring that our employees are properly trained to handle all types of auto glass repair or replacement, regardless of the make or model.
