Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings are not exempt from graffiti by acid etching and tagging. Elevators, escalators and bathroom mirrors have all become prime targets for vandalism. This type of graffiti significantly impacts your building aesthetics could translate to decreased reputation. There is a potential for decreased property value if not removed.

Removable surface protective film is the most cost-effective. The film protects damage from graffiti and/or shields a vulnerable area from damage before it happens. The film is easily removed and replaced should the surface be vandalized.

Installing surface protective film tackles vandalism while achieving considerable cost and time savings compared to replacement.
