What is Whiteboard Film?

May 26, 2021 in Aggrigate, Glare Reducing Window Tinting

A new trend is emerging in the office and education worlds and other industries. It is something called whiteboard films and it alleviates a lot of the issues with traditional freestanding whiteboards and/or permanent whiteboard fixtures. These films basically go on any flat surface (glass, walls, doors) making them a whiteboard. Many of these films are DIY but to be truly effective they should be installed by a professional film company. Not only is the quality of film higher but they will last longer too. Plus, you are guaranteed to reap all the benefits below as collaborate, take notes and express yourself on these amazing whiteboard surface films!

 The Benefits of Whiteboard Films

  1. Customizable in shape and size: One of the problems with traditional whiteboards is they are usually large and can only be put in certain places. Since whiteboard film is applied on top of flat surfaces–they can be put almost anywhere! Plus, your institution can put have them cut and applied to virtually any size, shape, or configuration–so your creativity is your only limit.
  2. The most attractive whiteboard option: Let’s face it, freestanding whiteboards are bulky and not very nice to look at crammed in a space. Permanent whiteboards hung on walls end up stained and messy looking with marks that never go away. Worse yet, even if your board stays clean, one accidental mark with a permanent marker or pen means replacement–but replacing them is expensive. With whiteboard window film in your Salt Lake City school or business, you simply have the film removed and replaced at a fraction of the price! 
  3. Easy to maintain: When you have whiteboard films by 3M Whiteboard applied you will never have to deal with permanent ghosting (marks left behind over time from marker). They can be used extensively for years with no residue. This saves you money and time trying to remove unsightly marks that never go away.

Could Glare Be a Workplace Safety Issue?

April 18, 2021 in Aggrigate, Glare Reducing Window Tinting

When it comes to keeping businesses safe here in the Salt Lake City area–we often think of our safety and security windows films. They keep shattered glass in place after a high-velocity blow or fall–protecting employees. But, as we have seen throughout the years, there is more to keeping workers safe than just protecting them from random attacks and falls. Creating a harm-free environment is part of that too. As it were, there is a silent, slower threat to the employees of your Salt Lake City offices, restaurants, hotels, retail stores, and more–glare.

Why Glare May be Violating OSHA Workplace Standards

Glare is defined as:

“visual conditions in which there is excessive contrast or inappropriate distribution of light sources that disturb the observer or limits the ability to distinguish details and objects.”

We are betting more people can think of more than a few places in their work environment that fit that description exactly. OSHA’s require employers to provide good lighting–which can’t be excessive. Under this definition glare sure sounds like a workplace hazard. But there is more. 

Why Glare is So Dangerous in Salt Lake City Workspaces

Excessive sun and glare are dangerous anywhere. Here in SLC, the stakes are higher because of the elevation. Glare from windows causes not only an annoyance but harm to employees including:

  • Eye Strain
  • Headaches
  • UV Radiation Exposure
  • Sunburn
  • Neck and Shoulder Strain
  • Blurry Vision

All of these make for a poor working environment, employees that are tardy or absent more frequently and less productive too!

Window Film: The Solution to Glare on Workplace Windows

The best way to stop glare on windows at your business while still letting in natural light and keeping employees safe and happy is through window film. It stops the excessive light that causes eye, skin, and muscle ailments and keeps screens clear. It also blocks 99.9% of harmful UV radiation keeping your employees better protected from cancer and diseases of the eyes and skin. Window tinting is a wonderful and affordable technology and one that will pay for itself via utility savings and human resource preservation many times over.

Surface Film Applications You See Every Day But Don’t Know It

January 21, 2021 in Aggrigate, Surface Films

It’s funny, you likely walk around Salt Lake City and pass right by surface films and don’t even know it! A lot of our customers are surprised just how many surfaces besides glass have films on them. This is why we sell both window films and we specialize in surface films too. Surface films are films relatively inexpensive and can be applied to non-transparent features such as walls, elevators, and other architectural features. This will breathe new life and/or style into your commercial space.

Hidden Surface Films That Work Wonders

Metal Films on Elevators: When elevators here in Salt Lake City and across the US get struck with graffiti frequently. It is frustrating for building owners and incredibly hard and expensive to remove. This is why many building managers come to us for metallic surface films that go over the damage. It is much less expensive than traditional elevator repairs, plus, can be easily removed and replaced when/if vandalism happens again.

Mirrored Films on Mirrors: If you have ever seen a bathroom mirror with graffiti on it–you know how bad it looks. It gives upstanding businesses a bad name. But sometimes graffiti stays on mirrors because replacing commercial mirrors is surprisingly expensive. We provide building owners access to mirrored films. They go over the graffiti and seamlessly match the mirrored surface. In fact, you would never know it is there. This saves Salt Lake City commercial spaces time and money in repairs.  

Resurfacing Films on Walls and Architectural Features: Any public Salt Lake City surface gets worn down from everyday use. Eventually these damages add-up and make the building look old and ugly. Walls, trim, metallic framing–all are areas that are prone to dings, scratches, and scuffs. The cost of renovating a commercial space adds up fast. However, there is another way. Resurfacing films, like Di-Noc, go right over affected surfaces and give commercial spaces a whole new look! Plus, they are far more affordable and simple than a remodel.
