Elevator Graffiti Removal And Prevention In Nashville

Elevator graffiti is rampant across the country and right here in Nashville is no exception. Every year, graffiti removal costs commercial property owners and taxpayers millions of dollars–especially in elevators, where a single panel can cost hundreds of dollars. Sadly, even after costly repairs, the elevators are often vandalized due to their closed off nature.

Elevator graffiti remediation has traditionally been done by removing all the affected metal panels and replacing it with new ones. This is extremely expensive and very time-consuming. However, an alternative to full elevator panel replacement is to instead, have a 6mm Metal Shield Film applied over the damage to mask it rather than removing the panel itself. Metal Shield is 10x less expensive ($1500 as opposed to $15,000). It is also easy to remove and reapply and most times is finished in as little as one day.

What Is Metal Shield?

As mentioned above, Metal Shield is a 6-mil thick graffiti prevention film that is installed over a defaced stainless steel surfaces. When the damage is done by paint, acid or scratches, metal shield can cover it and it matches the look of the metal perfectly. The best part is, once installed, Metal Shield acts as a sacrificial layer on your elevator’s panel. Should vandalism occur again, the Metal Shield film is simply removed and replaced at a much lower cost, and with less downtime than full panel replacement. At Nashville Window Film, we also carry additional films to protect a variety of other flat surfaces that could be at risk of vandalism like mirrors or glass.
