Edge Anti-Graffiti Films
Graffiti vandalism causes millions of dollars’ worth of damage in Canada each year and diverts tax dollars from the delivery of other important government services. Graffiti increases the perception that an area is unsafe and has a way of implicity encouraging additional illicit activity. As a result, graffiti frequently decreases property, makes residents feel unsafe, and alienates potential customers to area businesses. We work with Anti-Graffiti Films from our partners at Edge Technologies to allow business and home owners an easy way to both restore their buildings after damage and deter would be vandals before they strike.
What Are The Benefits?
Greatly Reduced Removal Costs
Store Front Protection
Many cities in the world are experiencing the growing problem of vandals tagging glass and other surfaces in public places using mechanical etching tools, acid and paint. Graffti can cost building owners, transport companies, and tenants many thousands of dollars in annual clean up and repair costs.
Anti-Graffiti Films are now the front-running solution to cost-effectively mitigate damage. These specially designed fims, nearly invisible once installed, provide a removable, sacrificial surface that can reduce or eliminate the need for expensive glass replacement. A single replacement of just one window can easily exceed ten or twenty times the cost of film installation.
Where can you install these films? On any vertical or sloped glass, mirrors, stainless steel, or hard/smooth exterior surface. When vandals strike, the film is simply removed (along with the tags) revealing the unspoiled surface ready for the replacement sacrificial film.
Use on All Surfaces
A property marred by graffiti instantly loses as much as 15% or more of its value, according to the National Association of Realtors. Once spray paint, etching, markers, or other types of vandalism have tainted the windows of a property, the owner or manager has no choice but to replace the windows at great needless expense. That is, unless they took the wise preventive step of installing anti graffiti window film on their property.
Anti-Graffiti Film offers around the clock protection for nearly every type of business or location. Since we partner with the world’s largest manufacturers of window films, we stand behind our window film with an unmatched, factory-backed warranty.
Cheaper than Replacement
Replacement is a Breeze
These Anti-Graffiti films contain a special mounting adhesive that allows the film to be easily removed and replaced without adhesive residue. They are easy to clean and maintain with everyday household cleaning products, and offer optimum clarity without distortion – so clear that vandals won’t even know that it’s there.
