Pub W- Blackout Window Tinting

3 Ways Pub W In South OKC Benefits From Blackout Window Tinting

Custom Window Tinting For A “Chill” Ambience

Pub W is a restaurant chain that was originally established in 2013 and their most recent location opened up in November of 2016 on the south side of Oklahoma City. To maintain the ambience of a modern American pub with an atmosphere that makes you want to “chill out”, the restaurant owners opted to have blackout window tinting film applied to their windows.

This speciality, custom window tinting film offers the restaurant a myriad of benefits. Today, we’d like to discuss 3 ways in which Pub W is recognizing a few of those benefits even nearly 6 months after the application took place!

  • Room darkening benefits: By utilizing window tinting rather than other window treatment options, the owners of Pub W have been able to benefit from a more effective light suppression option at a low cost. The trouble with blackout curtains is that the maintenance to keep them cleaned is a lot more costly and strenuous than wiping down a window! Furthermore, blackout blinds often still allow light to peak in around the sides, making them a poor choice for total room darkening.
  • Increased energy savings: High quality blackout window tinting has a highly efficient solar reflectance rating and solar absorption properties. This translates to the owners of Pub W being able to reduce their energy bills thanks to the diminished need for air conditioning and the film also helps keep the interior warmer during colder months, too!
  • 100% privacy: If you’re walking outside the building at Pub W, you will notice that you cannot see inside the windows. That’s due to the completely opaque blackout window tinting. This sounds like it’s only a benefit for the diners, but truly if those eating inside don’t have to worry about people staring at them from outside they’ll feel more “chill” and be more immersed into the Pub W atmosphere.

Starbucks- Window Tinting

One-Way Mirror Window Tinting Provides Safety To Starbucks’ Baristas

Window Tinting For Protection In More Than One Way

Have you ever thought about the reason why many restaurant chains will never allow service to be provided to someone who isn’t in a vehicle when they come to a drive-through window? Of course, it could possibly be to prevent liability issues such a vehicle accidentally running down a pedestrian in line. Most of all, the answer boils down to safety of those working for the establishment. Starbucks on the north side of Edmond, Oklahoma took the safety of their baristas one step further with one-way mirror window tinting!

As you have most likely seen on television, a one-way mirror (also known as a two-way mirror) allows viewers from the inside to see perfectly outside while those on the outside only see their reflection. The one-way mirror window tinting film works to turn ordinary glass into this reflective glass in a jiffy.

During the daytime the one-way mirror window tinting film also serves as a great way to protect against the sun’s harsh rays from beaming in on the workers, the merchandise, and the cash register. At night, when safety is even more necessary, the window tinting film allows baristas to see whether unexpected visitors have come to the window while maintaining a level of privacy for the workers inside.

So, next time you’re up on the north side of Edmond grabbing your coffee “to go”, you can think about how much Starbucks values the safety of their baristas! How’s that for awesome?
