One of the biggest challenges business owners face when renovating a commercial property is making sure the building is up to current safety codes. Unfortunately, the same windows that give your building the natural light you love also create the most common issues for buildings that need to be brought up to modern safety standards.

3 Ways Window Film Helps You Deal With Commercial Property Codes

Installing the right type of commercial window film on your Denver building can satisfy most of the city’s safety codes. Here are a few ways that window film helps you meet or exceed current building codes.

1. You’ll Satisfy the Bird Strike Plan Requirement

Most commercial buildings in the Denver metro area are required to have a bird strike plan in place. This plan helps mitigate the damage done to the ecosystem by birds colliding with windows and decreasing their numbers due to human interference. With bird strike commercial window film, the windows are more visible, reducing the number of avian collisions each year.

2. The Windows Will Be Less Vulnerable to Breaking

Security is important for your property but it’s also essential to improving the safety of your customers and team members. Commercial window film on Denver buildings makes the windows harder to break. The film holds the glass in place, reducing the risk of injuries on your property and helping you satisfy the liability requirements for your building.

3. You’ll Avoid Costly and Time-Consuming Construction

While you can always replace your windows to accomplish these improvements, the process is expensive and time-consuming. Worse, you have to secure the necessary construction permits from the city and that alone can take weeks. Window film doesn’t require permitting but still satisfies the building code requirements in most cases. You’ll save time and money in the long run.
