Why Should You Tint Your Glass Windows?


Tinting windows is becoming more and more common these days on homes and commercial buildings alike. But why does everyone so obsessed with tinting their windows?

Building windows, whether commercial or residential can be tinted easily for privacy and safety. When properly installed, window tint can last for years and protects the interior of your home or office from sun damage, excessive glare and heat.

So what benefits do tinted windows provide?

Privacy & Safety

When windows are tinted, you add privacy and protection to any room in your home or office. They work in the same principle as automotive window tint, you can see out but people can’t see in. This protects your privacy and your property. The tint film also protects against injuries from broken glass, since the film holds the glass together in the case of a breakage.  It also ads another layer of strength to the glass, which holds it in place in case of damage. A window with a tint film is harder to break, so acts as a barrier against intruders. Thick security films can add extra protection, particularly useful against strong winds and natural disasters.

Visual Decoration

Window tinting can add visual appeal to the exterior of your building or home. You can even get specialist films such as textured, frosted or sandblasted, which ads a whole other level of decoration. You can even make a picture window with the use of window tint films.

Energy Saving

Glass tint can greatly increase your savings when it comes to energy bills. This works on multiple levels. In the hotter months, window tint blocks out excessive heat from entering through the glass, which means that you don’t need to waste as much energy on cooling your home. In the colder months, the heat is actually retained in the home by the tint, which means that not only do you not have to spend as much energy to upkeep the temperature, you won’t have to heat it up as much in the first place.

Reduction In Glare

Particularly useful for offices where people work on computers, or even in your home where you watch TV, tint reduces glare coming through the glass. Now you can leave blinds and curtains open while watching TV and still see what is going on!

Protecting Your Furniture

One of the most common known benefits is that fact that tint film blocks out the majority of UV rays coming from the sun. The main benefit of this is that it preserves your furniture from fading and getting sun damaged.
