How Storefront Glass Doors and Windows Benefit Your Business

Posted on: 19 August 2020

If you are thinking about opening a new retail location in the near future, you probably are looking at the overall layout and design of your new store and figuring out how you want it all set up. If the location you will soon be moving into does not yet have commercial glass doors or windows installed, there are a number of reasons why you might want to contact a commercial door hardware expert before your grand opening. Here's how having all glass at the front of your store can benefit your business.

Better Lighting Means a Better Mood and Lower Energy Costs

When you have all glass at the front of your store including the commercial door, you will allow more natural light from the sun to make its way into your building. More exposure to natural sunlight can help give your employees a boost or even improve their morale. But the additional sunlight can also help you with your energy costs. You could turn some of the overhead lights at the front of the store off if they are simply not necessary. The additional sunlight may also help warm your building when it's cold outside so your HVAC system won't have to stay on as long.

Being Able to See What's Coming is Helpful for Your Security Team

Being able to see outside into the parking lot could also benefit your company from a security standpoint. If you see a large number of people coming towards the store, it will let you put extra security in place or get additional people to the sales floor to watch for theft. If you spot a shady character or bad actor coming towards your business, your security team will have a heads up to contact the authorities right away. 

Glass Doors and Windows Can Entice People to Stop In

When your storefront is all glass, it will be much easier to snag potential customers who are walking by. If your store is in an area with a lot of foot traffic, you will want these customers to be able to catch a glimpse of what's for sale as much as possible. You may be able to organically increase your sales by adding glass to your storefront and putting signs for some of your best deals up towards the front of the store.
