Thousands of packages are stolen each year from apartment building entryways, particularly during the summer. If you have been experiencing disappearing packages from the lobby of your apartment it's a good idea to tackle your disappearing package problem now.
If your packages are being left in the common areas internal to the building, behind a locked door but in the hallway, you have to make sure that prying eyes cannot see your deliveries.
One of the best ways in preventing these thefts can be accomplished by strategic use of privacy window film. Privacy films are a cost-effective, and versatile alternative to curtains and blinds. The best window privacy film choices are designed not just to cover a window and keep onlookers from seeing inside but also to provide a range of UV and heat protection.
There are several types of window films that you can choose from. These films are usually quite straightforward to install, and they come in an array of colors, designs, and styles. Each provides a degree of privacy while letting in light, while others guarantee total one-way or two-way privacy. Some options offer energy-saving benefits as well.
Decorative window films are a great way to enhance your apartment entryway. It comes in many different colors, patterns, and opaqueness and with design patterns, sketches, and textures. It is not the best option if you are looking for a film that will give you 100% privacy because most are translucent. However, it does reduce visibility for privacy for both day and night.
A translucent film offers a middle ground between light and privacy, letting in soft light in and lightening up the area while still giving a visual barrier. Typically, the translucent film gives the effect of blurred images when looking in from the outside. Translucent films are available in different patterns, colors, and shapes, such as birds or flowers. They can be used on exterior windows or interior glass windows and doors.
Blackout window films provide the best privacy you can ask for. It ensures no one can look through the window and see what is inside. It provides privacy day or night.
Whiteout film is often used to create privacy but with the same opacity as blackout film. Instead of black, the glass looks white from both the inside and outside, providing a somewhat softer, less somber feeling in the room.
Not all films provide the same amount of privacy. Blackout films provide nearly 100 percent privacy at all times, while translucent films simply obscure the shapes behind the window, while some decorative films also obscure the view inside.
The use of privacy film for the lobby, and apartment entryway windows can significantly reduce the occurrences of package theft from your building.
