Understanding The Dangers of Damaged Glass

When I noticed a few chips in the windows of my home, I didn't worry too much about how it would affect anything. Instead, I mainly focused on how it made my home look, and I secretly cursed the unsightly damage. However, those small chips began to grow until there were large cracks. After having that experience, I decided to dedicate myself to spreading the word about the problems associated damaged glass. Read this blog to find out how damaged glass could affect you and your family members.

Window Tinting For Your Medical Practice: It's What The Doctor Ordered

Maëlyne Fleury

Enhance your medical office with window tinting. From the exterior windows to interior doors, learn about some of the ways this practical update can aid your healthcare facility. 

Patient Privacy

Patient confidentiality is important in every aspect of the care you provide. When patients are in the waiting room, the last thing they want is for someone on the outside to walk by and gawk. Tinting an exterior window impedes the view from the outside and tint on external areas, such as the door to a waiting room or consult area, is just as beneficial. 

Energy Consumption

The sun's rays transfer a great deal of heat. If your clinic has several large windows, the amount of heat transfer you experience can be enough to force your cooling unit to work harder, and therefore increase your energy consumption. Window tint limits the number of rays that transfer through the glass, which ultimately helps keep the space cooler, naturally. In the end, you will spend less to cool the space. 

Patient Comfort

On a busy day, you're not always able to make every appointment on time. As a result, patients have to wait sometimes. A patient that has to wait in a warm room with the sun beaming on their face might not make for the ideal scenario. Window tint can at least keep your patients comfortable in the exam room while you work hard to get to them.

Equipment Protection

The sun's powerful rays can't just damage the outer layers of the skin; they can also damage your equipment. For instance, direct sunlight on an LCD monitor can cause the screen to heat up considerably. Over time, elevated heat levels can cause the breakdown of the crystals in the screen, which will eventually cause the display to stop displaying images correctly and eventually fail. 

Building Security

Patient records contain a lot of important confidential records — the same information that hackers need to steal identities. While network security is an important step, as an added benefit, many window tint films create an extra barrier on the glass, which makes it's harder to shatter. The increased shatter protection makes it harder for someone to break into your clinic and access your patient records. 

Speak with a commercial tint professional, like those at  City  Glass, to learn about even more of the benefits of window tinting and more details on some of the additional spaces where you can apply this technique.
