What do users look for when installing commercial windows, doors, storefronts, and entry systems?

A study by Building Design+Construction says, “Durability and resiliency are two factors that are intimately tied to safety in windows, doors, and storefronts. In terms of user satisfaction, energy conservation and thermal efficiency are still the primary focus of fenestration design today. In a survey by Building Design+Construction, about three-quarters of respondents named efficiency as the top functional feature of windows, doors, and entry systems.”

This study indicates the key need for today’s customers, and users of storefront and commercial window installation. These needs are shaping the trends in design, construction, material and maintenance. American workers are spending more time in offices   than earlier, prompting employers to go the extra mile in ensuring that the work space looks inviting and comfortable. Efficiency is being counted as the top most requirement for making your windows, doors, storefronts and commercial windows functional and appealing.

Hence, non-residential constructions are paying extra attention to their storefront and commercial glass – opting for designs that are leaning more towards creating the ambience of the outdoors. You will find new building construction making use of floor-to-ceiling windows to bring in more natural light using commercial glass services.

Storefront windows especially are becoming more and more designer-oriented as window displays are undergoing a sea change. Commercial glass companies are making extra efforts to display their goods in various theme designs as per their product requirements. Hence, large storefront windows are in vogue that provide enough space to set up themed decorations to give customers a positive feeling.

For example, furniture displays in commercial storefront now depict an entire designed room or even a series of rooms. The large storefront display allows customers to fully visualize the type of home décor they can create if they purchase the displayed products.

To keep up with the latest trends you need to seek assistance from commercial window installation experts with your commercial storefront and window projects whether it’s a new construction, renovation or retrofit project.

It is an accepted fact now that more glass sells more products as customers are able to get a clear view of the products and their usability. The tempered glass storefront allows the customer to see inside the store while walking by, and when she finds it inviting, she walks in to browse the products and makes the purchase decisions.

Interestingly there is a growing trend of using tempered glass storefronts in residential design as well.
