Shopfront Makeovers

Is Your Shopfront Looking Tired Or Old Fashioned?

Let the Secure Glass Team revive your image and give your business a new lease of life.
 

Renovate, Makeover or Retro-fit

  • Create a Retro, Olde English or Art Deco look
  • Modernise your entrance, making it pedestrian and wheel chair friendly
  • Maximize your window exposure with larger, clear panes
  • Change your swing door to an automatic sliding glass door
  • Have your glass panels etched (frosted) with a design of your choice

You’ll be amazed at the difference we can achieve together.

Continued Customer Flow: We can design, create and replace any existing shopfront with minimal disruption to customer flow.

Your new, stylish frontage will command the attention of passers-by and please your existing customers.

Cost-effective and Expedient: Our rates are highly competitive and we provide excellent turnaround times.

Recently, in the midst of the boom times with prices rocketing and lead times getting longer and longer, we were able to turn around a job in Nedlands in 1 week for a client who had been given a 7 week lead time by another glazing company.

 

Call us to discuss your requirements.

Secure Glass now utilises the latest in digital photo-measuring technology to facilitate precision template-making. This is especially beneficial when doing glass fit-outs in the more creative, architecturally challenging buildings, but its use throughout the repair or retro-fit areas of glazing will speed up processes and give the company a more competitive edge.

Glazier’s Log : The Pick-up

Caz - the night dreamer Early a.m.  I see the muzzle flash and the bullet whirrs past my right ear. An explosion of broken glass behind me reminds me they need to upgrade that door panel to our LamGuard Security Glass. Diving to the floor I pull my weapon and roll to the left, firing four rounds at the flash as I stop, feet and elbows splayed. I hear a scream, then a cough. I crawl to where I dropped my torch and illuminate a scene of devastation. I scrunch over the broken, shattered glass. But where are the bodies? Suddenly, there’s a hideous screeching sound. Wha  . . . ? Aha. It’s my cell phone. I had nodded off again. I am called to secure a large window in a popular shopping strip. Some stupid accident. My truck comes to life with me. I slip in a Powderfinger CD, turn up the volume and purr off along the empty streets of Perth, the night’s litter fluttering in my wake.

The story – as told by the astonished driver to the cynical security guard, and retold to this even more cynical glazier – was that the “drive through” coffee he’d been nursing as he drove away had burnt his lips, causing him to spill it on his lap, which caused him to . . .  Well, you know how it goes: Distracted by the need to cool his goolies, he pulls the wheel sharply over, mounts the footpath, takes out a rubbish bin and manages to stop with only one front wheel in the actual shop. A life-like shop dummy draped in a slinky designer dress lies suggestively across his bonnet.

Scattered glass fragments lie thick, dressing the scene like snow flakes. Good stuff that Safety Glass, no jagged shards. Even her dress – hiked up and revealing – isn’t cut.

Excessive alcohol consumption may have been a contributing factor. The police are having a quiet word to him as I arrive and the breathalyser is being prepared. “You’re gone mister” I mutter to myself, and start boarding up the gaping shopfront.

After cleaning up the site, I cruise away into the dawn, job done. Our glaziers will have that shopfront like new before lunch time. My favourite track comes on. I crank up the volume and look at my new passenger for approval. She stares woodenly ahead, her nakedness a distraction.

Damn, I should have asked for the dress as well…..

A Disaster or an Opportunity?

You’ve been ram raided!
 

Someone has thrown a brick through your window!

Your Shopfront and Display is in tatters and disarray!

A disaster? Sure.

But why not turn it all to your advantage?

For starters, turn it into a promotional event. Crime is always newsworthy – especially an accidental Smash or Ram-Raid scene.

Collude with a TV reporter and have them meet you on site. Air your opinions on the state of society – while plugging your damaged business. At the very least, go for a free article and photo in the local paper.

If the Smash and Grab merchant has been able to break through your glass with that brick, we recommend you UPGRADE TO OUR ANTI-BANDIT SECURITY GLASS. Call us to see if you are eligible to have this done, AT NO EXTRA COST.

Refresh and renew. After Secure Glass has repaired your window, take the opportunity to take a fresh look at your display design: including the lighting and your colour scheme.

Summer is coming, why not create an enticing sun-sand-surf, fun-theme. Or alternatively, a seductively cool, shaded look.

Lastly, don’t forget to make a show of your new display when it’s done! Have an ‘Opening’. Use balloons and bunting and throw in some Specials.

The result?

A more secure premises.

A brighter, revamped ‘new’ look.

And some free publicity.

A positive outcome don’t you think?
