How Window Film Works

Helping to control the sun is just the beginning.
The concept is simple. The results are amazing. Window   film   is   a   sheet   of   strong   polyester   laminate   treated   in   variety   of highly   engineered   ways   to   improve   the   look   and   performance   of   existing windows.   One   side   has   a   scratch-resistant   coating   and   the   other   has   an adhesive that bonds the film to the glass surface. Architectural   window   films   work   by   controlling   the   passage   of   solar   energy into    room    spaces,    improving    the    insulating    performance    of    windows, providing   endless   decorative   opportunities,   or   substantially   reducing   the safety and security hazards associated with fragile, easily shattered glass. Solar   control   window   films   for   homes   and   commercial   buildings   help   control   the   sun’s   radiant   energy,   reducing   the   influx   of   heat, enhancing   outward   visibility   by   reducing   harsh   glare,   and   nearly   eliminating   the   damaging   and   dangerous   effects   of   ultraviolet   light   on our skin, eyes and interior furnishings. Low-e    window    film    enhances    the    solar    and    insulating    performance    of    a    building’s windows,   reducing   excessive   solar   heat   gain   –   reducing   cooling   loads   and   peak   demand.   They also    provide    year-round    benefits,    reducing    heating    costs    by    improving    window    insulating performance. Safety   and   security   window   films   are   many   times   thicker   than   standard   films   and   provide a   tougher   barrier   against   forced   intrusion.   And   in   the   event   of   windstorms,   earthquakes,   and explosions,    they    work    to    help    shield    occupants    and    by-standers    against    flying    glass fragments.
Protect people and furnishings from harmful UVA rays.
The   sun   offers   many   benefits,   such   as   increased   productivity   and   reduced   reliance   on   electric   lighting;   but   the   sun’s   UV   rays   can   also damage skin and building assets if they’re not controlled. UV   rays   can   penetrate   windows   in   commercial   buildings,   homes   and   automobiles,   exposing   occupants   and   interior   furnishings   to   an invisible   danger.      UV   rays   can   fade   furniture,   wall   coverings,   artwork,   fabric,flooring   and   window   merchandise   displays.   UVA   rays   are also   linked   to   skin   cancer.   This   exposure   is   cumulative,   so   the   total   damage   an   occupant   receives   is   directly   related   to   how   often   they’re exposed to UV rays. LLumar   solar   control   window   film   is   one   of   the   easiest   ways   to   mitigate   UV   damage.   It   can   block   more   than   99%   of   harmful   UV   Rays while   offering   unobstructed   views,   allowing   natural   daylight   inside.   Window   films   also   reduce   solar   heat   gain,   which   may   lower   cooling costs.      Newer   low-e   window   films   offer   year-round   HVAC   savings   by   helping   keep   radiant   heat   inside   in   the   winter   and   outside   in   the summer. Window film is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as part of a comprehensive skin care program.  
Automotive   tint   and   flat   glass   tint   are   very   similar,   but   they   are   also   very   different.   Automotive   tint,   applied   to   trucks   and   cars,   and flat   glass   tint,   applied   to   exterior   windows   or   doors   in   a   building,   both   have   the   same   purpose;   to   keep   the   interior   space   of   the   car, home,   or   office   more   comfortable.      Intense   heat   and   glare   caused   by   direct   sunlight   can   make   the   inside   of   a   car,   and   the   inside   of   a room quite unbearable. Window   tint   helps   reduce   heat   build   up   and   glare,   which   can   cause   discomfort.      Another   benefit   for   window   tint   is   that   it   offers   UV protection.   For   homes   and   offices,   installing   window   tint   can   prevent   damage   to   your   skin   when   you   are   enjoying   a   seat   by   the   window, and helps prevent premature damage to interior furnishings and flooring. AUTOMOTIVE TINT VS FLAT GLASS TINT WHY IS AUTOMOTIVE TINT DIFFERENT FROM FLAT GLASS TINT? Unlike   flat   glass,   automotive   tint   absorbs   the   sun’s   energy.      It   is   when   the   car   is   in   motion   that   it   pulls   the   heat   away,   cooling   the interior   of   the   car.      When   the   car   is   not   moving,   it   can   actually   cause   the   car   to   heat   up   more   than   without   the   film.      Because   of Transportation laws, there is a limitation to how dark and reflective automotive tint is allowed to be. Buildings   do   not   fall   under   the   same   restriction   as   cars   which   means   reflective   properties   and   darker   tints   are   allowed.      Flat   glass tint   stops   the   heat   of   the   sun   right   at   the   window,   preventing   the   windows   from   heating   up   and   not   requiring   the   building   to   be   'in motion' for the cooling effect to take place. CAN AUTOMOTIVE TINT BE INSTALLED ON FLAT GLASS? Automotive    tint    is    heat    shrinkable    for    installation    so    that    it    can    be    applied    to    the    curved    surface    of    a    car    window.    APPLYING AUTOMOTIVE TINT TO FLAT GLASS CAN CAUSE BREAKAGE. Therefore,   as   much   as   automotive   and   flat   glass   tints   are   very   similar,   in   that   they   offer   solar   protection   and   increased   durability,   they are   designed   for   different   applications.      Now,   if   you   could   build   your   house   or   office   to   be   aerodynamic   and   move   down   the   road,   maybe then   automotive   tint   could   be   applied   to   your   home   or   office.      Until   then,   automotive   tint   can   only   be   applied   to   cars   and   trucks,   and   flat glass tint used on homes and office buildings.
