New York City, Long Island, and neighboring towns, are experiencing the growing problem of vandals tagging glass, and other surfaces in public places using mechanical etching tools, acid, and paint. Aka GRAFFITI.
Anti-graffiti window film, also known as “sacrificial film”, is now the front-running solution to cost-effectively mitigate damage. These specially designed films, virtually 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.
Whether they are applied to vertical or sloped glass, or mirrors or stainless steel, in malls, on buses, in office buildings or on subways, installation and replacement by New York Window Film’s professionally trained staff is quick and easy, avoiding the disruption caused by window replacement. When vandals strike, the film is simply removed along with the tags, revealing the unspoiled glass surface ready for the replacement sacrificial film.
