If you own a commercial property here in Colorado you could be liable for any accidents that happen on it. Even if you are insured against it–filing a claim could increase your rates or make it harder to insure your property again. One way to make your Colorado commercial property safer is with security window film. It not only helps prevent theft but also protects people on your property from falls into glass.
- Security Window Film for Accidents Prevents Injuries: Certain areas of your Colorado commercial property are more prone to falls into glass than others. Bathrooms, balconies, and stairs are all areas that are often surrounded by glass and often incur falls. Putting security window film on these areas keeps glass from breaking into dangerous shards and therefore lowers instances of injury during a fall.
- Security Window Film Is a Low-cost Alternative to Tempered Glass: Most commercial spaces have building codes requiring tempered glass on areas around stairs, balconies and in bathrooms. This is to protect people from extensive damages if they fall. Security window film is a workaround for having tempered glass installed. Instead of incurring the expense of all new glass in these areas, you can have a cost-effective security film installed to fulfill the tempered glass requirement.
- Security Window Film Could Save You From Liability: Some commercial spaces don’t have safety glass around bathrooms, balconies and stairs. Older buildings, for instance, are grandfathered in. You will only have to update this if you make other changes to the property. However, if you have glass that is not safe in your establishment–you could end up in an expensive lawsuit for damages that the injured person may very likely win. Applying safety window film is part of due diligence and could help you avoid losing a liability lawsuit.
