UV Protection Window Film for South Park, the Commercial District of Downtown Los Angeles

 

It’s a blossoming commercial district with Staples Center and a huge new skyscraper coming, so it’s an opportune time to consider UV protection window film for South Park properties in downtown Los Angeles. Already planned for construction is what will be one of the tallest building in Los Angeles, by developer Crescent Heights, a tower of 714 feet tall at Olive and 11th streets that would house up to 800 condominiums above ground-floor commercial space in a mixed-use configuration. Already there’s a ton of window glass in South Park to be protected, and clearly more is to come.

Nearly Immeasurable Amount of Square Feet to Keep Cool

Anyone who’s been to Staples Center – and we assume most adult Angelenos have – know how much glass went into that structure’s exterior. With Staples Center came a lot of new construction around it, and this is one of the most vibrant and visited areas in all of downtown Los Angeles. With so much square footage to keep cool, plus thousands of employees and tenants to protect from the sun’s harmful rays, it’s wise to understand modern UV protection window film for South Park, Los Angeles properties.

Rejecting the Sun’s Powerful Rays in the South Park District of L.A.

The concept of UV protection window film in South Park of downtown Los Angeles – or privacy window film or security window film for that matter – is something commercial property owners or managers must be aware of in today’s energy-saving-conscious world. These modern films can reject up to 99.9 percent of ultraviolet rays (UV rays, also called UV light) that are known to cause skin cancer and cause damages to properties inside buildings over time such as flooring, blinds, drapes and more. Additionally, these films block most infra-red light (IR light, also called IR rays at times) which are responsible for the sun’s warmth.

Protection for Property, Workers and Visitors for these Buildings Downtown

Adding UV protection window film in South Park means dealing with properties bounded by the Santa Monica Freeway (10) and Harbor Freeway (110) on the south and west, respectively; and Main Street to the east, and Eighth Street on the north. It is home to the Los Angeles Convention Center, the aforementioned Staples Center, and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Nearby are the neighborhoods of West Adams to the southwest, Pico-Union on the west, South Los Angeles to the southeast and the Financial District on the northeast.

Note on the Tallest Buildings of L.A.

The Olive-11th streets mixed-use tower won’t become the tallest building in Los Angeles – but it’s close. The tallest building in Los Angeles is the Wilshire Grand at 73 stories and 1,100 feet tall. The new structure, however, will rise above City National Tower, which with 52 stories reaches up 699 feet to the sky.

Notes on the ‘2 South Parks’ of L.A. (and the Fictional ‘South Park’)

This is not to be confused with the South Park neighborhood southwest of downtown, which is bounded by the neighborhoods of Vermont Square on the west, Central-Alameda on the east, Historic South Central on the north and Florence on the south.[LINK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Park,_Los_Angeles ]. Also, obviously, the South Park commercial district and South Park neighborhood of Los Angeles are not part of the fictional community portrayed in the “South Park” television cartoon show.

Commercial Window Film for Storefront Business in Los Angeles

Did you have any idea that with commercial window film installation, businesses are able to reap a broad array of benefits? Those benefits will range from thwarting thieves to saving cash on cooling or heating costs for your commercial space, whether the space is a store, an office, a hospital, a hotel, a factory, a school, a warehouse, or any additional structure other than a house. Let us look at some of the benefits a company might gain from installing commercial window film:

1. Cutting energy costs was discussed, with the energy efficiency window film installation which blocks heat gain within the summertime and heat loss within the winter seasons. The more windows a business has, and the larger these windows, the more cash energy saving window film is going to save you. The high-performance item is ideal for hotels, hospitals, schools, and any commercial building which is searching to discover a method of lowering overhead.

2. Thwarting thieves was also discussed. With loss prevention or security window film, the windows are going to look the same yet won’t respond the same if somebody attempts to break them. The glass is going to stay inside the frame, denying a thief or vandal entry, as well as avoiding the issue of shattered glass all over the outside or inside of the space. With this kind of commercial window film, owners of businesses may add another critical protection layer to any security system.

3. Are you curious about cutting glare? With a dependence on phone and computer screens today, glare has increasingly become a larger problem within the workplace. Using glare reduction window film, companies may ensure the productivity of their employees, prevent eye strain, and for an added bonus, block the sunlight’s UVB and UVA rays which cause furnishings to fade.

Merely take off the anti-graffiti window film that’s installed to the outside of the windows, and then the graffiti is gone without any time-wasting and endless clean up. A new film then is applied. Also, this product may be utilized on any steel, smooth surfaces like municipal busses.

Heat Control Window Film for Homes in Los Angeles

Windows can make any room feel light and airy, but they can also allow up to 87 percent of the sun’s heat and 77 percent of its UV rays to enter the room. According to the United States Department of Energy, the right window treatments can reduce heat and UV transfer through windows and lower your monthly energy bills. Heat control window films are a simple, easy way to take control of your environment.

When sunlight hits the window that is protected by heat control film, the UV rays are blocked, and the film only allows some of the heat to pass through. This improves the thermal performance of homes and buildings in Los Angeles and increases overall energy efficiency. The heat control film can also prevent heat from escaping a building during cooler months.

We installed Huper Optik Ceramic 30 Window Film in this home.

Heat control window films are typically made with polyester-based materials. They bounce the infrared or visible light away from the window, and some types can block up to 70 percent of the sun’s heat. These films are often reflective or mirrored in appearance, but they can also include special design features such as patterns or frosting or can be virtually clear. Some types also reduce glare, which means that you can use your electronics or watch TV easily without first closing your curtains or blinds.

Unlike other types of window treatments, solar films allow plenty of natural sunlight to enter your home, but they block the UV rays and solar heat so that you can enjoy plenty of natural light in comfort. Because the UV rays are blocked, your skin will be protected, and furniture, curtains, carpets and other fabrics will not fade as a result of sun exposure. Houseplants should continue to receive plenty of light for healthy growth but may need a few days to adjust to their new environment.

Create comfort in your home with Huper Optik Ceramic 30 Window Film.

The initial cost for the installation of heat control window film is typically lower than other window treatments, and the film begins paying for itself immediately in the form of lower air conditioning costs and less upholstery wear due to fading. Some films are simple enough for homeowners to install on their own. Residential window films can last 20 to 25 years or more and often have lifetime warranties. Commercial films typically have 10 to 15-year warranties. How long the film lasts will depend on where the film is located, the type of window upon which it is located and how it is maintained.

Windows with protective film can usually be cleaned as any other window but might need a bit more TLC. Use a glass cleaning solution free of abrasive ingredients, a squeegee and a soft, clean cloth to wipe the window free of fingerprints, buildup and other debris.

Privacy Window Tint Film for Homes

If you are looking to increase the privacy of your home, then we have the perfect resolution for you. We have several film options that can optimize your privacy and make you feel more comfortable in your home.

For privacy concerns, we recommend the Huper Optik Fusion Film Series to enhance the privacy and comfortability of your home.

Fusion 10 is the darkest option only allowing 11% of visible light transmission and Fusion 40 being the lightest film which allows 40% of visible light transmission.

No matter which option you choose each of these films will provide you with the privacy you want from the outside looking in. When outside looking in you will get a reflective mirror look. This will give you the privacy you want for the inside of your home. Although the film blocks the view from the outside in, it does allow you to enjoy the natural view outside. You can stop having to worry about people seeing inside your home and live more comfortably when privacy film is installed on your windows.

How Privacy Window Film Works
During the day when the sun is shinning people can see in your home. Once installed, a privacy film will reflect the sun from shinning inside your home and all people will see from the outside is a mirror reflection while maintaining your view looking out.

The most commonly asked questions about Privacy Film:

Question: Can you see in at night?

Answer: Privacy reflective films work by blocking out the most prominent light source. During the day the sun is the primary source of light and the tint will reflect the light from the sun and give off a mirror/reflective look.  However, at night, when there is a light on inside the house there is a chance it is the prominent light and it will allow for some visibility inside depending on the darkness of the tint.

This question is usually followed up by…

Question: Is there a film that provides privacy both day and night?

Answer: Absolutely! There a a few options that can provide you daytime and evening privacy but you must know they do obstruct your view looking out. If you are interested in total privacy day and night and don’t mind blocking your view click here to read and find out more about these options. (insert link)

Anti Graffiti and Glass Protection Film in Los Angeles

Shop and building owners who have large glass windows at pedestrian level know the concern all too well: what if someone decides to deface the windows? Whether with sprayed-on graffiti, key scratches, or acid etching, this sort of damage presents the owner with nothing but bad choices. Should you replace the window, despite the time and expense and the risk that it will be damaged again? Or should you leave it in place, even though it’s unattractive and will depress business and property values? And once the first damage is done, it only encourages other vandals to leave their marks as well.

However, there’s an alternative to help keep your windows safe: graffiti protection film. This is a thin (4-7 mils, depending on type) but tough sheet of transparent plastic film that can be cut to fit your window. It is invisible once applied, without coloring or distorting the light that comes through the window. You should not know it’s there once it’s been put on. (Note that this is not the same product as shatter protection film, which usually goes on the inside of the window and helps hold the glass together if a burglar tries to smash it.)

Graffiti protection film is also referred to as sacrificial film, because its purpose is to take the damage that would otherwise harm the window. It blocks paint from touching the glass, and is strong enough to stand up to keying or razor blade attacks without allowing the window to be scratched. It can even absorb the acid that some attackers use to etch glass, without allowing it to pass through.

When properly applied, graffiti protection film should be impossible for passersby or vandals to pick off. But a trained technician can easily remove the damaged film and reapply a new layer, much faster than it takes a glazier to replace a damaged window. Not only does this keep your windows looking good, it helps prevent other vandals from seeing you as a target.

Agencies such as the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing agree that removing graffiti quickly is one of the best ways to ensure that it doesn’t happen again: it shows the vandals that their acts won’t be rewarded, and it discourages others who might try to compete by adding their own marks. The ideal time frame for removing graffiti is no more than 24 to 48 hours, which is difficult to schedule if you have to replace the entire pane, but entirely doable for replacing graffiti protection film.

Your windows are a major investment in keeping your building looking good and attracting customers, and unfortunately they can also be a major source of headaches as well. Having graffiti protection film applied can help cut down on those worries and ensure that your glass stays looking good for a long time.

Anti-Graffiti / Protective Film for Glass Windows, Mirrors, and Metal Surfaces

Graffiti is a growing problem through out Los Angeles. By using paint, acid, permanent markers or etching tools like screwdrivers, vandals can effectively deface or even destroy glass or other vulnerable surfaces.

A proven, cost-effective solution to reduce or even prevent graffiti is anti-graffiti film or sacrificial film. This nearly-invisible, removable film can effectively lessen or even eliminate the need to replace valuable glass surfaces. In fact, replacing only one window can cost between 10 and 20 times the cost of installing anti-graffiti film.

Window Tint LA can quickly and easily apply anti-graffiti film to such surfaces as vertical or sloped glass, mirrors or metal. Little do vandals know that once they deface a film-covered surface, the anti-graffiti film can be removed to expose an untouched surface ready for another layer of film to be applied. When vandals return, they’ll be disappointed to find their “work of art” gone and will likely think twice about repeating their crime.

Anti-Graffiti / Protective Film for Glass Windows

An increasingly common type of vandalism to glass is accomplished with a solution of acid mixed with white shoe polish. No cleaning product can remove the inscription that results from burning shoe polish into the acid-etched glass. Anti-graffiti film especially formulated for glass is acid resistant because of an exterior hard coat that prevents acid from penetrating a vertical surface. Acid will form into benign droplets that can easily be removed with soap and water. It’s virtually impossible for an untrained person to remove the anti-graffiti film from glass, but a trained technician can easily remove it.

Anti-graffiti film is also available that provides an added benefit for retail storefronts. This film blocks out harmful UV rays that can cause valuable merchandise to fade. Another type of tinted anti-graffiti film blocks IR rays and can be an important asset to restaurants and subways as well as storefronts where excessive heat can pose a problem.

Anti-Graffiti / Protective Film for Mirrors

Because of the privacy in a restroom setting, vandals often target mirrors knowing they have plenty of time to inflict damage with knives or screwdrivers. An anti-graffiti film can protect costly mirrors that otherwise would need replacing. In addition, the film protects mirrors from moisture-caused corrosion on mirror edges or bottoms.

Metal Shield Anti-Graffiti Film

Anti-graffiti film designed for protecting metal can be found in either brushed aluminum or stainless steel finishes. Stainless steel is a popular metal because of its resistance to rust and corrosion. Even stainless, however, can be defaced by such abrasive tools as keys, screwdrivers and sandpaper. Anti-graffiti film created especially for metal will restore its original polished, factory-finished appearance.

Whether you’re looking for a product to protect a valuable surface in a mall, public transit center, restaurant, hospital, school or retail establishment, you can’t go wrong when you invest in anti-graffiti film.
