Window Film To Cut Glare In Austin Apartment Windows

The city of Austin has no limits as it grows and grows into something much different than it was 10 years ago. A building boom is a welcome event in a city you almost can’t believe used to a sleepy college town. The University of Texas, Austin, an exploding music scene and events like South By Southwest have put Austin on the map as one of Texas’ best cities to live in. As wonderful as Austin is, one downfall of Southern Texas living that we hear often in our line of work, is the intensity of the sun–larger than life like Texas itself. Also, a slight uptick in smash and grab crime. As new residences go up weekly in this case study on multi-tenant commercial properties benefiting immensely from window film is more pertinent now as it ever has been.

SITUATION: A multi-unit apartment building in Michigan was experiencing a sudden rash of break-ins on their property. The tall windows of the apartments were easy targets for smash and grabs in this normally low-crime area. Additionally, tenants regularly complained about excessive heating bills and in some south and southwest face apartments an uncomfortable glare.
SOLUTION: The property owners decided to use Solar Gard on all of the apartment’s windows because of the multi-use applications. The film promised to keep windows secured, slightly shaded and energy efficient.
RESULT: The owners could not be happier with the results and their decision to use Solar Gard. They reported that occupants immediately experienced increased comfort and significantly reduced utility bills. The 8 mil film also protects against the glass windows being shattered by any would-be thief ergo– no more smash and grab break-ins.
