Two Reasons To Consider Safety Glass For Your Commercial Displays

When you're setting up your new retail space, one of the things you need to think about is how you're going to display your products. Sometimes the best way to showcase your products is to put them on glass display shelves so that the products are the focus. If you're considering glass displays, here are a few reasons why you should invest in safety glass from your commercial glass supplier instead of traditional glass shelves.

Customers Lean

If you ever observe people as they shop, you'll see that they lean on displays, place their elbows on them or otherwise put pressure on them. This can cause traditional glass to shatter, potentially posing safety hazards as well as putting your products at risk of damage. Since safety glass is tempered, it's made to hold up to extra pressure and weight without shattering. Investing the money in tempered safety glass initially can not only save your company the cost of replacement but potentially save you against a liability suit for someone getting hurt by shattered glass shelves in your store.

Added Security

Many store owners invest in enclosed cases to display their most valuable items. Glass display cases made from tempered glass will be heavy, so they cannot be easily stolen. In addition, they're secure enough that you won't have to worry about anyone stealing smaller valuable items. This reduces your loss prevention needs and associated costs, too.

In addition, since the glass is tempered, it's very difficult to break. That means you won't have to worry about someone shattering the glass easily to get to the contents inside. If someone does strike the glass, it will break in a spiderweb pattern with safety film inside to keep it from separating. This makes it harder to gain access to the inside of the case and also minimizes the concern of glass shards scattering around.

These are two key reasons to consider investing in safety glass for your commercial property's displays. With a combination of glass shelving as well as enclosed display cases, you can put your items proudly on display for customers. In addition, the clear glass will allow you to focus light where you want it, drawing attention to the most popular or most valuable items in the store.
