If you're in the market for new storefront windows, don't overlook the opportunity to invest in business impact windows. Here are just a few of the many reasons to consider doing so:
Save Time and Money
One of the best reasons to install impact windows in your storefront is to save yourself some time and money in the coming years. When a serious storm is expected to hit, you don't have to waste time preparing by tacking plywood on the windows. And your impact windows are less likely to shatter during a hurricane or tornado. And if your impact windows are hit with a rogue baseball, chances are that it will stay intact. So overall, you can expect to save yourself some time and money when it comes to protecting your windows from storms and repairing them due to damage of any kind.
Minimize the Chance of Break-Ins
Traditional storefront windows can be broken pretty easily, so they aren't typically a deterrent to would-be criminals. If someone wants to break into your store, they might consider busting out a traditional window in order to get in. But if your storefront features impact windows, someone can't easily smash it open with a baseball bat or a metal bar. They can try, but chances are that they'll be running away before they gain access to the inside of your business. And even if someone does manage to shatter one of your impact windows, the glass will probably stay intact thanks to the center membrane of the pane so gaining access would still be incredibly tough for most people .
Enjoy Plenty of Advertising Space
Only the perimeter of impact windows typically need to be framed in order to perform properly after installation, so you don't have to worry about crossbars getting in the way when you want to advertise any products or services your business sells. Just post your pictures, signs, poster boards, or vinyl graphics on your windows without worrying about whether a piece of framing will get in the way. Of course, you can have your new impact windows framed in any way you want so you don't have to go without. But if you want to take advantage of the most window space possible for advertising purposes, you can forego framing almost completely.
