Point Defiance Zoo Eliminating Graffiti
Well… A lot has happened since we have last posted - Not to mention a great, emotional roller coaster ride of a Seahawks season and a Heart Breaking Loss in the Super Bowl… (Sigh) We will rise again and hopefuly “3-Pete” (see what I did there?) So now as we get geared up for seemingly promising Mariners season to hopefully make the post season, The warmer weather tends to bring on Graffiti…
Graffiti is one of those things that will never go away and is unbelievably annoying and costly. We can all relate to fixing your hair in the mirror at the movies, window shopping in the city or excitedly looking for varying wildlife at the Zoo, and blocking your view, is some dummy’s attempt to “mark his territory” with a scribbled name that no one can even read. Now the facility is faced with repairing or replacing damaged glass; That’s where we come in. As you know Exhibit glass at the zoo is large and super thick (for protection against an excited ape or playful tiger, obviously) and large glass means large price tag. Point defiance Zoo in Tacoma called us up after being tagged up and varying locations throughout their facility. We were able to buff out scratches/tagging on the glass and then coat it with our 3M anti graffiti film – If you are not familiar with this material, here is the lowdown. Anti Graffiti Film is a clear sacrificial film that we can install on to the glass surface, You cant see it and “Sir-tag’s-a-lot” cant see it – He tags it, feeling pretty good about himself that he has just stamped his cryptic hieroglyphic on the glass; We come and remove the film and install new film, all at a fraction of the cost of replacing the glass.
We don’t claim the super hero status, but we … Wait. We eradicated the problem caused by some uneducated goon and made for a better community… Yeah we’re Super hero’s
