Energy Efficient Storefront Windows

While we offer full storefront window and door installation, replacements or repair, we also can assist with a comprehensive range of other commercial glass services. Do you need storm windows or insulated glass? We can help!

Storefront windows and larger storefront doors are very vulnerable to adverse weather events, simply due to the expanse of glass involved. For this same reason, storefront windows can also be incredibly energy-inefficient, allowing heat to easily escape in winter and ambient heat to keep indoor temperatures high in summer. Insulated glass offers you a long-term investment that will keep your store or office cool in summer, warm in winter, and help keep mounting electricity costs under control. It’s a win-win all around!

Commercial Storefront Doors

While we don’t think of them often, your storefront door can be a key part of what attracts people to your business. What helps create that key first impression about your business? Your glass storefront- acres and acres of what should be gleaming, clean, and well styled glass. Would cracked storefront doors, streaky and dirty commercial glass, and a dingy, flaking storefront door pull you into the shop? Of course not. Luckily you have Roxy Glass on your side!

From simple repairs to keep the approach to your business spic-and-span, through complete remodels that won’t disrupt your staff and customers, our professionals will help you create the image you need to ensure your business thrives.

Secure storefront doors for customer safety

How do storefront doors differ from other industrial and commercial doors? Primarily, it’s in the security features. This isn’t just the entryway for your clients, but also a key access point to your stock and staff. Aluminum storefront doors are the most common choice, as it’s a very light and easy-to-handle door frame while remaining strong.

Large expanses of glass allow visibility for customers. Typically, tempered or safety glass is used to offset any risk, and it’s common to add features like security bars or a roll-down security screen for use after-hours. They are durable and heavy duty, designed to last for many years.

Aluminum or wood storefront doors?

Glass storefront doors are a given, but which frame type is best? Aluminum is, by far, the industry standard, for the reasons we outlined above. Storefront glass can also be installed in wood frames, however. Solid core wood is durable, but very heavy. They’re also better as an internal door, as they weather much faster than aluminum. In order to be ADA-compliant, a storefront door can’t be heavier than 8.5 pounds, and that’s near impossible to achieve with wood.

Steel doors can be durable, but have a small window lite and cannot take full storefront glass, making it non-ideal. While this can be worked around, aluminum remains the best choice for storefront glass doors. It can also be anodized into a variety of attractive colors for long-term visual appeal, where wood and steel storefronts have to be painted.

More than just storefront door repair

Do you feel like your image badly needs that refresh? We can help you source and install storefront doors to complement your business, or help you with a wide range of design techniques to display your name, logo, and any other information your customers need at their fingertips. From traditional sandblasting to ultra-modern graphic transfers, we’ll help you find the solution you need.

Of course, today we can’t merely install glass storefront doors and leave it at that. Every business needs watertight security to ensure your customers and staff stay safe, not to mention protect your business outside of working hours. We can assist with both fire-resistant and bulletproof commercial glass options, giving you greater peace of mind.

While hurricanes aren’t a typical concern in the San Francisco Bay Area, we can also provide hurricane-impact rated safety glass to help ward off adverse weather concerns and provide a measure of reassurance against protesters and even accidental chips and cracks.

Secure solutions that help you keep your commercial glass compliant and legal

We also offer full tempered safety glass installations. This unique glass, which breaks into safe, small, pieces if shattered, and will also mostly remain within the frame instead of spreading across the floor, helps prevent injuries and stock damage in the event of window damage. In many areas, safety glass can be compulsory for large or deep shop front windows, aluminum storefront doors in use by the public, or commercial glazing where pedestrian traffic is heavy, and it can be a key part of bringing your business up to code.

Laminated glass, which is built differently to safety glass but covers some of the same aspects, is a common feature of upper stories or in skylights. It is similar to the glass used in many vehicle windshields, and is designed to ‘hang together’ when broken instead of fragmenting into pieces, making it safer for people involved and an easier cleanup. While it can be an unnecessarily pricey addition to storefront glass where tempered glass will do, it has a range of commercial uses and should be on every business owner’s radar.

Use smart security film

We can also help you with upgrading your existing commercial glass. Security film is an aftermarket addition you can place on storefront windows and doors. It helps to keep the area light and bright, while adding some impact damage and shatter proofing to your existing glass. As it can easily be retrofitted to the space, it can help you make a massive upgrade to your storefront windows without the costs of a full replacement.

Deter vandals and opportunistic burglaries, and add a layer of weatherproofing, to your existing glass with little hassle or fuss. Safety film for commercial glass, while not quite as effective as an actual tempered glass installation, can help prevent splintered shards of glass posing a risk to customers and staff, too.

UV-filtration can also be applied through UV-rate safety film. One of the most insidious, yet ever-present, sources of damage over time is UV radiation, a natural part of the sunlight spectrum. This is what leads to pale patches on furniture and upholstery, as well as damaging wood and degrading plastic. By using a commercial UV film on your glass, you can cut down on stock and furnishing damage and keep your storefront window displays looking fresh and vibrant with less effort.

Not all commercial glass film is made alike, however! We take great care to source only the very toughest, tear-resistant films that will adhere smoothly and provide you with a complete peace of mind.
