When you have a business, it is important to consider even the tiniest details. There are different requirements for different types of businesses, and you should make sure to fulfill these requirements to a tee. Some things business owners may not consider are the doors and the glass. Doors and glass provide protection and security for your business and your customers. They both come in a variety of styles and purposes to suit the needs of your business and your aesthetics as well. Here are some considerations for deciding on the right glass and doors needed for your business.
Accessibility and Ease of Use
Does your business need shopping carts? Will customers often leave the store with their arms full of merchandise? Then you may want to consider sliding doors. Automatic sliding doors offer the ability to walk through the doors without being impeded. For the aesthetics of your building, since no one will have to touch the doors, there should be fewer grimy fingerprints to clean off every day.
Security and Safety
If you have a business that is very involved with your customers’ private information or simply want to ensure your customers’ privacy and comfort, privacy glass is the way to go. Privacy glass still allows in natural light, while blocking unwanted eyes from peeking in. This glass will generally be frosted or heavily tinted in a way that makes it impossible for any wandering eyes to see anything other than vague silhouettes.
Minimize Risk and Injury
It is important to consider how you can minimize the possible risk to your customers if something dangerous were to happen. Safety glass is glass that is manufactured to be more resilient to breakage. If the glass is broken, it will not shatter and spread in a way that may cause injury. It essentially dampens and contains the shock so that the glass doesn’t fly through the air or to the ground and harm anyone in the vicinity.
Guarantee a Safe Transaction
Banks and movie theaters are just a couple of places you may have seen transaction glass. Transaction glass is important for businesses that have tellers or cashiers who handle a lot of money and could be in high-risk situations. This type of glass protects the internal employees while not inhibiting the customers’ experience. Transaction windows can even be equipped with bullet-resistant glass to protect employees from a dangerous situation if shots are fired. Transaction windows may exist internally or externally, depending on the business.
