Storefront windows are a very important factor when it comes to the success of your business. Your windows allow potential customers to check out your products and atmosphere to see if they would like to visit. They contribute to the first impression your store givers off. When choosing your storefront windows, there are factors to consider. Some main factors are: energy efficiency, security and appearance. Read below about why they should be considered.
What to Consider When Choosing Storefront Windows
- Energy Efficiency – Windows provide your storefront with viability, light and warmth but they can also negatively impact your store’s energy efficiency. You can reduce energy costs by installing energy efficient storefront windows in your business. Without energy efficient windows your air conditioner will be forced to work harder, increasing your energy bill.
- Sun Damage – Sunlight can cause materials to fade over time. If you’re displaying clothing, furniture, or other items in your storefront windows, the sunlight could alter their appearance. Installing double-paned windows or tinting helps to reduce sun damage. The tint will allow sunlight to come through the glass, but will block out damaging elements.
- Security – A storefront can be inviting to customers as well as intruders. It can take just take a few cracks in the glass for an intruder to gain access to your store. If you have products available in a window display, they may be taken without even coming inside. Security glass is an option it has either an external film or an internal laminate. When the glass is broken, rather than shattering into pieces, the glass is held together by the film. That means that if the glass is broken by intruders, the storefront windows will stay intact. Another option is tempered glass, which is treated with chemicals to give it increased strength. If you have an accident where the window breaks, tempered glass will make cleanup much easier.
