Edge Transportation / Airports Window Film

Due to the nature of airports, train terminals, and harbors being high-profile and historical targets for terrorism coupled with their often large window to wall ratio and nearly 24/7 operation, the priorities in Transportation Facilities anticipated by Edge window film are as follows:

  • Energy – as with other market segments, energy savings continues to be the primary historical reason the transportation and aviation industries consider window film. While offering energy savings and improved comfort with safety and security, operators and travelers benefit from the installation of energy-saving solar control window film from Edge.
  • Storm – operators, employees, and travelers are at high risk for property and personal loss due to high-energy storms. As with office buildings, operators are left to replace carpeting, drywall, and furnishings after a storm breaks out windows and these financial losses caused by water inside the building envelope can dwarf the cost of replacing the glass itself. In addition to the cost and inconvenience is the possibility of losing a secure perimeter.
  • Blast – in transportation and aviation the blast scenario can be either intentional or accidental. However, the cost in a blast scenario is typically in lives rather than dollars and cents. Although many buildings do not consider themselves targets of terrorism, transportation and aviation is in the unfortunate industry segment that is a stated and repeated target of terrorism
