Graffiti guard is a clear film that can be applied to any flat, smooth surface. It is a protective film that ensures that the coated surface remains scratch free and easily cleanable. Even spray paint and chemicals are easily removed.
Some of the best surfaces to protect are high traffic areas, such as glass entries (like casino lobby entrances), bathroom stalls, mirrors, tabletops, and stainless steel elevators. These are great for bars and skyscraper building as well.
One of the best things about this film is the low tack glue that allows for easy removal and reinstallation after the damage has been inflicted or extended use. This extends the life of the items they’re protecting.
Admittedly, it’s rather unfortunate that graffiti-proofing has to be an issue. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have to concern ourselves with this kind of thing because people would simply be sure to respect everyone’s personal space and their belongings. However, there’s always the threat of the possibility of people getting a vehicle tagged, especially if it’s a service car or truck that has to travel to multiple locations in the greater Las Vegas metro.
There are countless reasons that people might commit an act of vandalism and deface property. Regardless of the reasons, you want to make sure that you do everything you can to protect against it and keep your vehicle looking great. In the process, you’ll be protecting your investment since this is far less than ever trying to recondition the exterior. If you’ve ever been concerned as a result of this, then you’ll certainly want to look into all of these following options.
Most graffiti guard is clear in color, but thicknesses range between 4 and 10mil. 4mil is the most widely used thickness due to pricing and ease of application. The topcoat of this film is the same on every thickness and they will all eventually become damaged in high traffic areas and areas prone to vandalism.
In most situations, you probably won’t need anything that’s much thicker than this. Each density of the film is designed carefully to reduce the risk of any kind of vandalism. People might not even be able to key it.
Depending on the exact type of vehicle you drive and how it’s outer shell was designed, you might need to have something applied that has a slight deviation from this particular standard. If that’s the case, then you shouldn’t worry because a graffiti guard that has to be applied somewhat differently won’t suffer from any reduction in effectiveness. It’ll still be able to fend off an assault from spray paint or other types of marking.
Vandals have sometimes used regular consumer-grade permanent markers and even children’s paint to try and cause damage or mark territory. This kind of protective film should still help in these cases.
Perhaps most importantly, the process isn’t at all difficult to get through and you should be able to enjoy driving your vehicle again in almost no time.
We always precut the film we’ll use during installation within one inch of the size of the glass to be covered, which means we’ll need exact measurements before we starting cutting. We can give you a worksheet to complete or we can send one of our team members to your location as part of our $50 in-house consultation.
Precutting the film helps us do a clean, quality job. Once on-site, we’ll also clean the interior of the windows and remove any debris.
If you have architectural glass, some dirt will be present due to the glazing style of the glass. Otherwise, you might not notice the film all that much. Even if there is a slight bit of distortion, the effect is certainly far less noticeable than anything someone might have been able to do if they wanted to vandalize your car outright.
The glass and the film are both sprayed with a solution composed of water, soap, and alcohol. Once the film has been sprayed, it is placed on the glass and adjusted for fit. Excess solution is squeegeed out, we trim the film if necessary, and squeegee one more time to ensure that we’ve gotten all of the excess solutions out. It will take about 30 days for the solution between the film and glass to dissipate completely.
Our one year warranty includes the edge of film failure of any kind when it’s due to installation error or defects in the film. The warranty does not cover scratches from daily use or damage inflicted directly on the surface of the film.
Once our one year warranty expires, the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty goes into effect. For more information, please see the manufacturer’s warranty. Warranties are non-transferable.
Keep in mind that the type of edge failure in question isn’t exactly very common. Our team of trained professionals makes sure to do the work the right way from the start, thus drastically reducing the chances of this kind of thing happening in the first place.
