Windows are, and always have been, the quickest way for people to gain access to someplace they’re not supposed to be. And if they’re going in through a smashed window, it’s usually because time is something they don’t have much of. The glass will break, but not shatter, helping to prevent the intruder from entering quickly, and leaving him wondering what to do next. In most cases, the answer is simple: move on.
Vandalism is more than just a nuisance and eyesore; it’s also a huge financial drain to public and private budgets. The cost of repeatedly replacing windows and glass that has been scratched up or marked with spray-paint can end up being prohibitive, not to mention time consuming and disruptive. Graffiti-Free is Madico’s window coating for the commercial and retail marketplace. When vandals do strike, it won’t be permanent. The window stays put, and just the film is replaced, at a fraction of the cost. Graffiti-Free can also be used on many non-porous surfaces other than glass.
