Your commercial business’ appearance is an important factor in its success. Therefore, it’s important that you replace old features when they start to wear out. Aluplex is here today to let you in on why you should replace old commercial glass doors.
The first reason why replacing old glass doors is important is because it gives you an opportunity to improve your storefront’s appearance. When you use the same glass doors for many years, they begin to wear out and get dirty. Cleaning can help for a while, but when your glass doors have scratches, scuffs, or sticky residue on them, cleaning no longer helps. By that point, your glass doors will look pretty ratty no matter how much soap and water you use.
It’s not just the glass on commercial glass doors that begins to look worn out after years of use. The handle will also display your doors’ age. Paint or coatings on the outside of push or pull doors will begin to wear off. When a door’s handle starts to get that big silver patch where the metal shows through from many years of use, you know it’s time for a replacement. After all, the appearance of a business’ storefront or interior is an important indicator, to customers, of what quality the business is.
Upgrading your commercial glass doors
When your commercial glass doors have worn out enough to require replacement, it actually gives you an opportunity. You can use this as a chance to upgrade your doors. Choosing doors that look nicer may give your business an edge over others. Choosing higher quality doors than what was installed originally can also mean your new doors last longer than their predecessors.
Rebranding and Advertising
Another perk of getting new commercial glass doors is being able to rebrand. While you might not be interested in changing your business name, you could update your logo! Making your logo simple, recognizable, and a clean design will ensure people remember your business. New doors means the opportunity to put that logo right on the glass where every guest will see it – not to mention people just passing by.
If you’re going to get customized commercial glass doors, you can also use this as a chance to put your hours on your door. Glass front doors are where everyone expects your business hours to be. If you want to make finding your hours easy for visitors, put them up where everyone can see them.
If all of the appearance points don’t matter to you, you’ll definitely want to consider the security implications of replacing old doors. For one thing, glass doors are vulnerable as it is. Glass doors are one of the primary targets for burglars. If your glass doors are visibly worn out, they’re even more likely to become targets, as old doors are weaker. Replacing your doors and investing in a strength-enforcing window film will make a huge difference in your security.
