Every business has windows. But yours could be something special. What do you see when you look out the window of your business? What if you got to see a big canvas for your brand to shine and promote itself? With quality window art, you have an opportunity to make your entire building stand out. Standing out is important in a gaudy, brassy place like Las Vegas. Promoting your business means seizing every opportunity you can to get your brand out there. Here at Team Acme, we have an expert squad of graphic designers and application technicians. We’ve wrapped Lamborghinis and Ferraris; we’ve tinted the windows on everything from cars to buses, so we’re pretty confident we can apply a beautiful, custom piece of graphic art to the windows of your business.
You could rent a billboard. You could buy sidewalk signs. You could hang a banner somewhere. Those are all great ways to get your message out there. But there’s one advantage your windows have over any of those options: you already own them. That’s right. You’ve got all this visible space to do with as you please. So ask yourself, are you getting everything you possibly can out of it? If not, some promotional art might be exactly what you need to stand out alongside the many other great businesses in Las Vegas.
Window art just creates a magical environment where everything about a building is dedicated to your business and brand. The sunlight on the floor is colored by your brand. Window art communicates that you are here to stay, and that you do good work. It doesn’t matter whether you sell food, clothing, furniture, insurance, or luxury cars. Window art tells people you are fully committed to what you do. In a crowded, competitive place like Las Vegas where there are a million distractions, this is so important.
When it comes to applying art to your windows, you have to insist on quality. There are too many beautiful buildings in Las Vegas for you to be able to get away with looking shabby. That’s why you need expert technicians like those at Team Acme to help you out. We will make sure that your window art is free of unwanted folds, wrinkles and tears. We know how to prepare it for rain, wind, sun or anything Las Vegas might throw at you.
If you are already envisioning the beautiful window art you want on your Las Vegas business, we here at Team Acme can help you bring that vision to life.

Like any smart businessperson running a brick and mortar store of any kind, you probably have a deep desire to turn window shoppers into in-store shoppers. That’s why clothing stores put their best designs on mannequins near the window, and bakers put out their best looking cakes, pastries and pies for people to see as they walk past the store.
Team Acme can help you turn your window into an advertising asset without having to set up a complicated display of your wares near the glass every morning. You can make your entire building deliver a striking statement about your business with some professional window art. Team Acme can help plan, design and install window art that will make your shop far more noticeable, and tell the world what you do at all times.
Window art lets you look at the window as an opportunity. It is naturally high-visibility real estate, which makes it the perfect medium for an advertising message. Not only that, rather then wrestle with the fees, prices and details of external signage, with window art, all you’re using is space you already have a right to. Put your brand, logo and slogan on a whole new level with an ad like this. Sometimes the sense of curiosity that a great piece of window art creates is all it takes to get customers through the door of your store. Mood and attitude are a key component of any brand, so you should see the window art as a space to express that.
The great thing about window art professionals like Team Acme is that your own imagination is the only limitation to what can be done. You can use your storefront’s windows as a place to tell your brand’s story, advertise a specific product, create an entire aesthetic look for your location, and make you stand out at the strip mall. We love the creative process here at Team Acme, so no matter what type of message or image you want on the front of you store, we are here to help.
Whether you have a vague or clear idea of what you want to put on your windows, Team Acme can help you flesh out details about this wise investment. Once we have a sense of the scope, scale and complexity of your project, we can provide a quote based on window space covered, the materials and tools we will need, and labor application will require.

If you own a business with a storefront, then you are probably aware of how captivating a window can be. Decorated windows serve the purpose of convincing customers to enter a particular shop. And advertisements in windows might just be the deciding factor for purchasers who might not have otherwise entered the store if, for example, the store did not have window advertisements that appealed to the shopper.

Window tints aren’t immune to the effects of sun exposure. After years of exposure, the adhesive that binds the tints to the window glass starts to break down, causing the film to detach slightly at the edges. Unfortunately, in some cases it doesn’t take years of exposure. Some installers have used poorer quality tints, which in turn have dramatically increased the chances of something going wrong over the life of the tinting material.
If your window tints are starting to peel, it could be because of a poor installation job, too. A poor installation could lead to the formation of bubbles in the window tints, which can cause peeling if ruptured. Poor quality materials are a major issue as well, especially when sunlight is involved. In the greater Las Vegas metro, heat and ultraviolet light can cause some types of window tints to peel.
Whichever category your vehicle tints fall under, it’s recommended to get them replaced before the adhesive hardens over time, becoming difficult to remove. Once the tinting sheets have been removed, our specialists shouldn’t have any difficultly replacing them with something that meets or exceeded all of the relevant industry standards involved.
At Team Acme, we start with looking at your vehicle. This tells us if we have access to all of the windows with tints. The process lets us determine how we’ll remove the film and glue. For areas that can’t be easily reached, we remove the interior trim panels to facilitate access.
Our crews don’t cut corners or take any shortcuts. We act in a way that doesn’t necessitate replacement anytime soon. After all, you shouldn’t need to repeat this process all over again.
We then carefully use a razor blade to lift a corner of the film away from the glass. Then we use a super steamer to loosen the tint and soften the glue. As the film is heated, it is slowly pulled away from the window glass, which allows time for cooling the tint.
Everything is removed until the underlying glass is all that remains. In some cases, we’ll find that previous faulty installation jobs left multiple layers of material over certain areas of the glass. This is technically against policy and not something our own organization would ever even think of doing. They’ll remove everything fully before doing any further work.
When the tint is completely removed, we check the window glass for any leftover glue residue. If any residue is found, we use razor blades and a glass cleaner to efficiently clean the glass. Since the back window glass holds heaters and antennas, Team Acme uses a steel wool cloth and glass cleaner on that area instead.
Everything is done gently however, regardless of what sort of area is in question, to ensure that no damage is done to the underlying glass. Naturally, we work hard to avoid damaging any of the other pieces as well. You’ll be sure the next time you switch on your stereo you get an FM signal and not static.
Some cars might have additional problems related to older tinting jobs, however. We’re ready to deal with that too, though, when removing the tint.
In more serious instances, when the glue embeds itself into the pores of the window glass, we’ll have to replace the window. Since it’s crucial to have all of the glue removed from the vehicle, we might have to get to areas like the bottoms of panels, break lights, and various edges and corners. It all depends on how the previous installation was done.
In some cases, other technicians might have used too much glue. Or they have tried to put on more than one layer of tinting over yet another previous installation. This will all have to be taken off, and our crews are up to the challenge if it does.
Making sure no glue is left behind is crucial. Any residue can actually hamper the installation of new window tints. Leftover glue can cause the new film to fall and leave visible specs behind. The result ultimately requires a new window tint or glass replacement.
Fortunately, we have you covered here as well, since our organization also does side window replacement when necessary. That being said, we’ll do everything we can to preserve the existing piece of glass. You won’t have to pay for anything unnecessary.
We use the optimal installation methods as well as the highest quality materials in the industry. Both ensure an efficient window film removal andinstallation process. Every tint removal job differs with each unique vehicle.
Motor vehicles that do need new glass, however, will be outfitted with a high quality piece of material. This glass will hold up to as much use as the original if not more.
If you try to replace your tints yourself or leave the job to an amateur, you could risk damaging your vehicle’s window glass. It can get to the point where a tint replacement will turn into needing new window glass. With Team Acme, you can rest assured that your vehicle is in the right hands. We’ve even made sure to pay close attention to all of the relevant regulatory questions.
The state of Nevada does have some guidelines regarding how much tint you can apply. Thus, our crews won’t put on too much material. You’ll be able to stay within these guidelines once everything is redone.
Best of all, we’ve put everything into play that helps protect your motor vehicle glass. The crew will give you the kind of tint you wanted in the first place.
The experts at Team Acme have been replacing window tints on numerous types of vehicles for over a decade. While some might require minimal labor, others are more complicated, ultimately requiring more time.

You probably know the simple answer to this question already: the difference between spray-on window tint and window film is one you spray on and one you don’t. That’s really all there is to it, at least on the surface.
But, are you aware of the advantages and drawbacks of each? When it comes to the debate between spray tint vs film, things get pretty heated as you probably imagine. This is especially true when DIY types get involved, and perhaps even more so if you mention car window tint spray compounds to a car collector or other type of enthusiast. They have a tendency to hold some extremely strong opinions about the stuff, which makes sense if they’ve ever invested a fair amount of money into their cars.
Therefore, we are going to discuss the differences between spray-on window tint and adhesive window film. Then you can decide which one you think is best for your vehicle.
Installing and reinstalling window tint is something we do every single day here at Team Acme, which means we’ve seen it all. We know all about the problems some people have with adhesive window film: it bubbles, it peels, it turns a funky color, it’s not permanent, etc.
Problems can happen with adhesive window film. But, these problems are not common with high-quality window film that is installed correctly and professionally.
Sometimes, motorists will experience these and many more because the individual or group that did the installation didn’t fully grasp what they were doing and therefore did a subpar installation job as a result. Due to the overall complexity of it, we’ll admit that it can be rather difficult to install window tinting film well and therefore there are a ton of poorly done cars out there plying the road today.
Once the tinting material is in place, it also tends to last a relatively long time and can be easily replaced in the future. If you were ever unhappy with it or it got damaged, then you could have our professionals simply remove it without much of a lasting impact on your car.
On the other hand, window tint spray may be much more difficult to remove or replace in the future, if you plan on doing it yourself. As a result, there’s a good chance you’ll want to have us take care of this problem.
Admittedly, there are reasons that motorists might want to give window tint spray compound a try. You’re likely to see these come up on automotive forums and pretty much anywhere else that people tend to talk about car customization online. The arguments in favor of spray-on window tint include:
• You don’t have to worry about adhesive failure
• It’s cheaper than window film
• You can apply it to any size and shape of the window easily and quickly
• It’s permanent
• It’s not going to chip off in the future
Ok, so you might not need a professional to apply your window tint if you decide to go with the spray-on window tint, because all you need is an aerosol can of spray-on tint and you can put it where you want it to go. It should be easy as spray painting, at least in theory. But, let’s not forget this window tint option has drawbacks as well, such as:
• It does not provide the same level of heat rejection and UV blockage as window film
• If it gets scratched, then it is more difficult to repair than film because it is permanent, and it must be entirely replaced
• There aren’t as many options available as there are with window film
• Removing it can be extremely difficult
That’s why some enterprising auto parts companies have come up with this spray tint for car windows compound that’s actually somewhat different than the traditional spray-on method. Window tint paint has become increasingly popular with those who want to try something different. DIYers that do a lot of custom work in their own garage have promoted this on online forum sites as an alternative to pretty much any of the other solutions around.
Window tint paint is promoted as a complete tint in a bottle. Painting window tint onto glass will, admittedly, give you a much more even look than most other DIY solutions. If you’ve ever used a rattle can for anything else, then you can paint window tint on with spray. There are a number of solutions available, all of which come in several different hues so you can at least theoretically use them legally.
Painting window tint on too darkly is still going to cause some legal challenges, especially if you use tint darkness greater than 35% on the front side windows. As you can imagine, controlling spray tint for car windows can be a challenge so this is at least somewhat difficult to prevent.
Overspray presents another problem for those who plan on painting their window tint on. You naturally have to have at least some degree of overspray in order to ensure complete coverage, so most people will put some form of drop cloth down so that they don’t get it everywhere.
Even masking the entire area off, however, still leaves you at risk for at least some damage due to paint landing where it shouldn’t be. Painting on window tint is easy, but it isn’t so simple to get off any errant droplets that land somewhere other than the glass.
One benefit of this method is that the tint is normally much more evenly applied than it would have been using poor-quality DIY window film. That’s encouraged more people who plan on doing the work in their own garage to gravitate toward these solutions. However, they still don’t give the same high-end finish that you’d get with a professionally installed window film even if you’re able to have the paint applied in a perfectly even fashion.
For ease of convenience, some people may choose to go with spray-on window tint. Others choose to buy do-it-yourself window film kits.
However, most professional auto technicians would not recommend spray-on window tint. The tint includes any kind that’s designed to let you paint the tint directly on the glass. While these are considered convenient and might look inexpensive in terms of upfront cost, think about the long-term consequences of using any of them.
In many cases, you might end up with something that you’re not going to enjoy in the future due to the subpar installation. Even experienced DIYers who love working on their car will probably end up rather disappointed with window tint spray through no fault of their own. The material that’s used in it isn’t the best, so even if they did a great job it might still not look the same as a fully professionally done job.
There’s also a risk that there’s some form of metallic substance in the paint or spray solution. Such a substance can interfere with cellular devices and GPS receivers. Some drivers of vehicles that have had this kind of spray-applied have even complained that they get worse FM radio reception on their stereos once they’ve done the work. That’s especially true of those who have an integrated antenna directly embedded into the glass on their cars.
Visit Team Acme’s website today to learn more about the window film options our company supplies and how we can professionally install high-quality window film on your vehicle today. Keep in mind that there are other factors at work when comparing spray tint vs film too. You normally only hear them from someone who has experience working with a single solution and not those who’ve seen it all on every single type of automobile that you could imagine.
SunTek Carbon Series tinting is designed to change the visible color of windows and the passage of light through them without resorting to any metallic compounds. As a result, it won’t mess with your cellular-driven devices nor will it inhibit FM radio reception. Other technologies are more common in spray tints, which means that they could cause these issues.
As auto technicians at Team Acme, Inc. in Henderson, Nevada, we are going to insist window film is infinitely better than spray-on window tint. However, we want our customers to know what they are getting into before agreeing to a service. Plus, it can’t hurt to learn something new.

The state of Nevada has updated its window tinting laws for 2022. The same goes for the Las Vegas and Henderson metro areas. Keep an eye on the percentages for visible light transmission, or VTL, when installing or replacing window tints and percentages for darkness. Here are five laws you need to know about window tinting in 2022.
The car window tinting laws have accounted for a need for dual-side mirrors. Vehicles need these side mirrors for visibility and safety if the back windows are fully tinted.
In addition to the recent updates, law enforcement officials will likely become particular about existing rules and statutes. Check out these extensive window tint laws that highway patrols will look out for in 2022.
Darker window tint allows for more security, privacy, and UV protection in a vehicle. They also reduce the driver’s visibility if they are too dark. Lowered visibility will then increase the likelihood of accidents or collisions.
Law enforcement feels that excessively tinted windows can endanger the public as a security risk. A too-dark tint can also make traffic stops inconvenient. You would instead not be pulled over before your windows are too dark.
State laws vary on window tinting regulations for installation and driving. In California and Nevada, for example, the laws factor in the amount of sunlight. Colder areas may not have this consideration, owing to fewer UV rays on a daily basis. They may also have specific regulations on tint percentages and color.
Current laws impacting sedans, SUVs, and vans allow any darkness to be used for back-side and rear windows. The windshield is allowed a non-reflective tint that can exceed the AS-1 line of the original equipment manufacturer. It’s when you start to get into front side windows that things start to get more complicated.
SUVs and vans must allow more than 35 percent of light through their front side windows. Sedan drivers are normally held to the same standard, but this figure only refers to visible light. You can install a piece that blocks almost all of the ultraviolet light that passes through glass since this doesn’t have an impact on the ability for someone to see in and out of the driver’s compartment.
Since 1993, Nevada legal professionals have opined that motorists have a 7 percent or so tolerance to be inside of when it comes to that 35 percent figure. That means you might not have to worry if your windows look slightly darker in some light than in orders.
While you’ll normally be allowed to tint your windows with any color you’d like, Nevada does restrict the use of certain shades of red and amber. These colors allow so much light, so few motorists are going to complain about this law. Red and amber can also make your vehicle look like a police car in some lights, so legislators have clamped down on their usage.
Medical conditions can affect your driving and the window tinting percentage. As long as you have certain documents on file and have an official diagnosis from a physician regarding a light-sensitive disorder, you may qualify for a medical exemption in the state of Nevada. If that’s the case, then you could legally have darker tints than would normally be allowed though you wouldn’t be able to share your vehicle with others as part of a pool.
All manufacturers of film products have to certify the film they provide in order to legally install it in the state of Nevada. Team Acme’s specialists always use certified products and do their best to install them in a way that doesn’t do any damage to the underlying surface. Once a tint is in place, it can be removed at a later date if necessary.
Every motor vehicle with window tint needs to comply with law enforcement authorities’ regulations. No matter the light on the road, you want to follow state rules about tint darkness. At Team Acme, our crews always watch for changes that might impact individual motorists. Trust us with your window tint darkness and compliance with the law. Anybody interested in having tinting installed, or for that matter removed, and wants to make sure that they will stay within the legal limits can contact us online.

Window Regulator & Motor Repair/Replacement is a common repair for older cars, but it can be costly. Research repairs before you start shopping if you’re looking for a new window regulator in the Las Vegas area. Here is everything you need to know about Window Regulator & Motor Repair/Replacement and how to pick the best auto shop.
A window regulator in an automobile is for raising and lowering the window. They are also crucial for ensuring that the window can’t be forced down by grabbing the pane.
Drivers and passengers use window regulators every time they use the vehicle, leading to wear and tear from constant use. However, regulators can break if a door becomes damaged for some reason. Excessive water or dust in the workings can cause problems as well.
How to Balance Cost and Quality When Replacing a Window Regulator?
Quality begins with parts and a bullet-roof process for fast results. Here’s what Team Acme, based in Henderson near Las Vegas, Nevada does when we’ve got a window regulator repair job.
When some aspect of the window’s functioning system is defective, this is often because of a manufacturing failure. Alternatively, a part has become outdated. When you install OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts on your vehicle, there are many cases in which redesigns to the parts can make corrections to common problems.
You get the most up-to-date part appropriate for your vehicle when working with Team Acme. When you use a remanufactured unit, you have an out-of-date part. The manufacturer only guarantees these items for 30 days.
The window regulator, lift motor, and assemblies are the mechanics inside the vehicle that allow you to roll your windows. Regulators driven by gears or pulleys are the most common. Window switches operate them. That’s why window regulator and replacement is important.
Windows that don’t work can be a real hassle. They can also become a much larger problem if you try to use them, significantly when the glass gets damaged.
Regarding window repair, Las Vegas metro area residents have it a bit easier than most. This process certainly might sound involved. Our team of specialists will help you replace the window and regulator.
Some vehicles might have certain types of individual parts and other complications that make the job more difficult. We don’t shy away from these kinds of repair jobs either. If you need help with the window regulator on your vehicle, then Team Acme will be there for you.
Take a look at the following process to understand better how we do it.
Check operation and make any necessary adjustments to ensure proper movement. We don’t proceed with the process until we’ve ensured everything works as intended.
Reinstall the door panel. Recheck the movement of the window, door handles, and locks for proper operation.
We’ve opted to work exclusively with OEM components. As a result, you won’t even have to worry about incompatibilities or other issues after the motor repair process.
Regarding window repair, Las Vegas area motorists can rest assured that we’ll use only the best components available for the job. Save money in the long run.
You likely won’t have to have any part of the process repeated anytime soon. That’s great news for all budget-conscious drivers. You might end up paying much less for a window regulator motor repair than you might have imagined.
When a component of the window’s operating system is faulty, it is often due to a manufacturing error or an outdated part. The benefit of using OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts is that, in many cases, there are redesigns to these parts or to the overall window regulatory system that correct common problems.
Redesigns and improvements use parts taken from the original manufacturer, ensuring that you have the most up-to-date options compatible with your vehicle. Using a remanufactured unit means you’ll have an out-of-date part, which the manufacturer will only guarantee for 30 days. Using OEM parts means they will ensure the part is against failure for 12 months.
Mechanics would hopefully not install outdated components in a transmission system or any other part of your vehicle deemed necessary. In almost any other circumstance, this would be a no-brainer. However, people have unfortunately been less than scrupulous in parts they don’t feel are as important.
At Team Acme, we feel that every single part attached to your motor vehicle is of total importance. We love cars and want to see everything out on the road working just as it should. All of our parts come from the original manufacturer’s specifications. We offer all of the improvements you’d expect from the same.
Most vehicle manufacturers give a 12-month warranty on all replacement regulators. The manufacturer’s warranty becomes active upon installation. You can bring it back to our facility or request a dealer invoice number to take your vehicle to the dealer for replacement. The warranty is nontransferable if the vehicle is sold.
Keep in mind that this isn’t much of an issue in an overwhelming majority of situations. Those who sell their cars find new drivers are often more than happy with the replacement work. These parts last quite a while, making it less likely for the same problems to occur.
Once people need window regulator motor repair on a part that lacks a warranty, they can always turn to Team Acme. We do our absolute best to ensure that everyone gets a fair deal at a price they can afford.
When these electric parts stop working, it can be challenging to come up with a diagnosis without removing the panels. Team Acme Inc. not only specializes in auto glass repair and replacement but in window regulator repairs and replacements, which must be serviced in a shop.

Replacing the windows on your motorhome is a key part of making sure your vehicle is safe. Many people who regularly use their motorhome will take it through a number of different environments. This could be the red rock deserts of the west, where pebbles, dust, and debris can chip and fracture your windows. Or they could be the snowy mountains of Colorado where hail and ice can pound your glass.
Team Acme’s auto glass experts have seen numerous small problems turn into big ones with motorhome and vehicle glass. This is because the slightest fracture, fissure, or crack, even if your eye hasn’t noticed it yet, can create a weakened stress point that can become dangerous over the miles.
Chances are that you’ve never thought about swapping the window glass out on your motorhome in the past. However, there are a number of reasons why you’d want to do just that. It’s important to keep the following considerations in mind if you’re on the fence about replacing the windows in your motorhome.
Though people may not use motorhomes as often as they use their regular vehicles, they need the motorhome to be more than just a vehicle when it is in use. Not only that, a motorhome may be stored for a long time without use.
During that time, hurricanes, tornadoes, winter storms, and just ordinary thunderstorms can all drop branches, icicles, or other hard objects onto your auto glass. This can lead to invisible damage that becomes worse over time. For the safety of your passengers and residents, replacing the auto glass is a safe choice.
On top of this, some people will actually live in a motorhome for an extended period of time. If you plan on moving your RV to a location and camping there for some time, then you’re going to want to ensure that there’s glass on it that’s going to hold up to long-term usage.
Campgrounds, especially those in southern Nevada, tend to have fairly rocky surfaces to drive on. If your RV isn’t outfitted with good quality windows, then there’s always a risk that these are going to break apart whenever they come into contact with hard debris. Consider getting in touch with Team Acme for a motorhome window replacement if this sounds at all familiar.
The rubber sealant and glue that helps hold auto glass in place has a lifespan. If your motorhome has been in storage for some time, it is very possible that the glue has lost its adhesive quality, and by extension, its ability to insulate your motorhome.
A poorly insulated motorhome result in cold nights on the road. Also, it is less secure when confronted with the wind and debris of travel. You can save your battery life with fresh, efficient insulation as well. When your motorhome is parked and in use, it should be able to provide you a better degree of comfort.
Insulation tends to be particularly important in areas where temperature extremes are common. As you might expect, that includes southern Nevada. Desert landscapes tend to get extremely hot during the midday hours and then later plummet as the sunsets.
There’s nothing around to absorb heat, which makes it all the more likely that you’ll want at least some form of insulation to ensure that you don’t freeze at night and bake during the day. Energy usage is a major concern, especially with RVs that have dual back axles. The axles provide support for an additional HVAC module. When working with this kind of equipment, insulated windows are a must.
We’re guessing that you’re reading this because you are doing an overall maintenance check for your motorhome. Either that or you are already on the road and looking for solutions to a problem that has already happened. Team Acme can offer you efficient and expedient service for your auto glass.

Assume, for a moment, that one of the windows in your motorhome cracked. You could potentially ignore it, but the problem is just going to get worse over time if you do that. Over time, the window could just burst, and then you’d be suddenly without access to your RV.
A better way to deal with the problem is to request a quote online and have it fixed up now. You’ll be able to get back on the road as soon as the work is done, meaning you won’t experience the downtime that comes with suffering from more serious setbacks later on.
The process of replacing motorhome glass is much like any other auto glass job. In general, the previous piece of glass is removed and swapped out with one that matches the exact dimensions.

Whether you are planning ahead for the future, or already have a shattered windshield, Team Acme can help you out.

Keeping your home or business safe is a top priority, from natural disasters or active shooters. You may have already had a security system installed to help deter theft and give yourself peace of mind. What you may not be aware of is that security film can be installed on your exterior windows and glass doors to work in tandem with your security system and provide an extra layer of protection.
Security film will keep the glass in your windows intact when, under high stress, untreated windows would normally shatter, allowing burglars entry into your property. Security film will make it much more difficult for thieves to break through your glass and gain entry. It may discourage them all together, or, at the very least, cause a delay that can give your security company or the police more time to respond.
Security films come in a wide variety of thickness, starting at 4mm all the way up to 21mm, which has the capacity to stop a 22-caliber bullet. (Please note that this does not make the glass surface entirely bulletproof.)
As a frame of reference, most government buildings use a security film with an approximate 8-10mm thickness, which generally secures the building against bomb detonation and significant weather events like hurricanes. More than likely, you haven’t heard much about hurricanes that strike Nevada, but this is a good consideration if you’re driving your vehicle across the country.
The film itself can also help to protect against the kind of damage that occurs as a result of numerous other weather patterns. Security film can be installed as a clear film or even can be tinted to help keep your building cooler in the heat of the summer. So, when it comes to finding the best match for security film for your home or business, you will have a lot of choices.
In theory, there is no such thing as a true bulletproof window film. However, adding this to your existing vehicle can help to dramatically improve the impact resistance of the glass, which is why it’s such a popular option with those who are concerned about various types of security-related problems.
Considering that bulletproof window film can increase the overall ability of your windows to resist certain types of impacts, it’s also a good way to deter some classes of vandals. If people just want to poke at your windows in order to cause trouble, then this can help to solve that sort of problem. This is why these films are called intruder proof or break proof window films.
Company cars are among those most likely to have a burglar-proof window film attached to them. These vehicles are those that need to remain protected. Thus, putting the burglar-proof film on them is often seen as a good idea. Slightly tinting your windows could potentially be a good idea.
When criminals try to pick out a vehicle to steal from, they often do so based on what they see inside of the car itself. If they see something like an expensive stereo or GPS receiver inside of a vehicle, then they might be more likely to break into it. The same goes for laptops or electronics.
That’s why some people actually take the time to remove the stereo plate from their vehicle whenever they get out of it. It’s often best to not leave this kind of material visible in your car. If you have to put something like a laptop in the passenger’s compartment, then you’ll want to hide it under the seat if at all possible. You’ll also not want to leave it in there too long since heat can damage sensitive things.
That being said, there’s no reason to also try to hide the interior compartment of the car itself. By utilizing tinting along with security film, you can make it harder for criminals to scope out your vehicle in the first place. That’s great news for those who have to travel around with a fair amount of devices stashed away inside of their vehicles.
Some people in law enforcement and other fields have used burglar-proof film in much the same way, which should help to dramatically illustrate the effectiveness of this technique. Naturally, your mileage may vary and everyone will have a slightly different experience based on several different variables. However, this has been an established technique used by a large number of motorists to great effect. You could even have it done at the same time as other procedures, such as painting or vinyl covering.
The first step in the installation process is getting measurements of the windows that you would like treated. Exact measurements allow for the best possible results. In our shop, our expert technicians professionally cut the film to meet the measurement specifications.
We carefully place the film on your windows with a special solution of water, alcohol, and soap. Finally, a lock or adhesive is necessary to keep the glass in place should it ever break. Once you’ve had a security film installed, do not use ammonia-based cleaning products!
