A decorative way to add privacy and eliminate distraction in a work environment is to add decorative film to glass office walls. Clear Frost Film is a popular choice for privacy, but window film also comes in a variety of decorative patterns including this Gradient Stripe installation we did at DeWys Manufacturing in Marne, MI.
Decorative Window Film can be used for privacy and add some decorative flair to the stark glass walls in a corporative environment. With a creative vision and some decorative innovation – the use and application of decorative film can be infinite!
We installed this decorative window film over a Level 5 Finished painted wall behind the reception desk at the offices of DJ’s landscape Management in Grand Rapids. Now that’s a cool wall!

“I just wanted to thank you for the email. The image of the mole containing melanoma within the email encouraged me to see my doctor about a suspicious mole on my arm. They found superficial melanoma on the mole. Because it was discovered early, they were able to remove the melanoma with surgery. As a result I am cancer free! I thank God he used this email to save my life! I hope you are encouraged by this!”
Solar Gard Window Film Provides Complete Skin Protection
Unless specially coated, glass offers no protection for UVA rays, which cause both aging and skin cancer. To protect yourself, your children and even your pets, you need protection from UVA and UVB rays. Window film blocks 99% of both UVA and UVB year round.
Solar Gard window films provide a wide range of benefits in one simple solution:
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the US and it can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to discuss strategies to prevent skin cancer or detect it early on. Window film is a wise investment for many reasons – but most importantly an excellent strategy to protect you and your family from harmful UV rays.
We’ve talked about it a little before, when the federal government rolled out Code Red grants to school districts to enhance school security in light of recent school shootings and bomb threats. 3M Security Film for glass doors and windows is a great way to boost the security of the traditionally weakest point in building security, and since you’re not replacing the windows and doors, the high cost of safety glass plus installation isn’t a factor.
Typically it takes 1-2 strong hits to break through a glass door, or a single shot from a firearm. Check out the video below, our supplier did a great job demonstrating the effectiveness of security film here, can you imagine what it could do in a code red situation in schools?
For a moment, let’s think about if each door in a school had this film system installed… Most schools tend to have 2 sets of doors in order to lower energy loss due from heating or cooling inside the building. If these doors had these systems installed, that would easily add a couple of minutes before someone could forcefully enter the building. Given that, what about each door and window inside the school? This could effectively slow down an attacker long enough for the school security team or police force to arrive and deal with the situation while lowering the potential for harm to the innocent lives inside the building!
